‘Anaconda’ Reboot In The Development

Sony’s Columbia Pictures is developing a new reboot of the 1997 horror film Anaconda, according to a report from a source.

We have not much information about the reboot as of yet, writer Evan Daugherty, who worked on the 2018 reboot of Tomb Raider, will write the script.

According to the sources, the new film will be a reimagining of the cult classic, which the studio believes will be comparable to the 2018 campy shark film The Meg, which grossed over $530 million at the box office.

In The Meg, scientists face a prehistoric shark of enormous size and scope, delving into science fiction territory with elements of action and horror mixed in.  Action movie actor Jason Statham featured, and the film earned $530.2 million at the box office against a $130 million budget.

While there are lots of monster movies in the development, with even a sequel to The Meg now in progress, films mainly featuring monstrous snakes have been hard to come by recently, with Snakes on a Plane being the most recent analog, coming back in 2006. There’s a chance here to revive Anaconda as a more ubiquitous big-screen staple going forward, a chance Columbia Pictures does not want to miss.

Success Of Anaconda Movies

The original film was premiered in 1997 and featuring Jennifer Lopez as well as Ice Cube, Jon Voight, Eric Stoltz, Jonathan Hyde, and Owen Wilson.

Although Anaconda was not the highest critical hit and even picked up some Razzie Award nominations, it was a box office victory, grossing $136.8 million.

The cult hit went on to encourage three further horror films: Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004), Anaconda 3: Offspring (2008), Anacondas: Trail of Blood (2009) and 2015’s Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

While the 2004 film did get a theatrical release and grossed over $70 million, according to sources, the remaining three films in the franchise were not premiered in theaters.
