Carl Eric Rinsch to helm The Creature from the Black Lagoon

The Creature from the Black Lagoon has found a new mate in director Carl Eric Rinsch.

 

According to the L.A. Times, helmer Rinsch (and one time contender for the Alien prequel) has been tapped to direct the long-gestating remake.

 

Gary Ross penned the script, but Universal is reportedly starting over in the story stage.

 

Meanwhile, the man who was supposed to bring the Creature back to life, Breck Eisner, is moving on to The Brood remake.
