The Swarm heads back to cinemas…

A remake of B movie the Swarm is reportedly in the works.

Producers Roy Lee (The Ring) and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity) of Room 101 are looking to develop the remake of the 1978 Irwin Allen disaster movie.

The original starred Michael Caine as an entomologist who learns that killer bees from South America have been coming together to form huge swarms. He sets out to stop the military from attacking and worsening the imbalance in nature, ultimately teaming up with them to prevent the deadly swarm from reaching Houston.

Ash Bolland is attached to direct and a writer is expected to be hired within the next month.
