Screenwriting cousins Mark and Brian Gunn have been hired to write Paramount's remake of "The Monster Squad." Rob Cohen, who produced the original film, will produce and direct the new version.
The 1987 original, concerns a group of kids who discover a plot by Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Gill Man and The Mummy to try and take over the world.
The studio is looking to the family-oriented property as a potential franchise, even as there is a project called "Monster Squad," with a different premise, in development at Warner Bros. with Mike Mitchell directing.
