Samuel L Jackson has been a very busy person. Playing the leading role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming murder mystery western The Hateful Eight which is scheduled to come out later this year. The Oscar-nominee has also completed (or will soon complete) filming for roles in a variety of big screen productions of 2016 releases including : Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children an adaption of the children novel of the same name and Harry Potter director David Yates’ Tarzan and more recently on a film adaption of theStephen King novel adaptation Cell, a horror-esque film which involves a signal which infects cellphones and when heard transforms people into monsters which is due to reach theaters later this year.
Now THR reported the news about Jackson signing up for The Bob, which is being produced by Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten.
Regarding the Blob remake the director was interviewed by Geek of Den and said:
“The blob itself will be more sophisticated, more along the lines of Alien and Predator and things like that – much more science-based, the way Jurassic Park made you believe you could bring back dinosaurs with a bit of DNA from a mosquito. This will be much more explained on where the blob comes from and how it works. It’ll be a much more sophisticated creature – because it is a monster movie rather than a horror in that sense.”
