Creature Feature fans may have something to look forward to as Sony Pictures has hired a writer to bring Anaconda back to the big screen.
Anaconda, originally launched back in 1997, is not a good movie. But it’s brand of B-movie cheese still has a certain amount of charm to it. It managed to spawn one theatrical sequel along with a slew of direct-to-DVD films (which inexplicably started crossing over with the Lake Placid films).
I’m a sucker for any and all kinds of monster movies and sometimes it’s fun to enjoy some good old fashioned cheese.
