    When Worlds Collide remake back on

    Sommers Returns to When Worlds Collide

    December 6, 2005


    Paramount Pictures and Steven Spielberg have brought Stephen Sommers back into their tentpole remake of When Worlds Collide, reports Variety. Sommers will write and direct the film, and Spielberg will produce.

    Sommers, who directed "The Mummy" films and Van Helsing, was aligned with the project when Paramount first made a deal for it earlier this year.

    Paramount released the original 1951 When Worlds Collide, directed by Rudolph Mate, and cleaned up some rights issues surrounding the movie when Sommers became interested in remaking the actioner.

    However, his version languished a bit when Paramount's new regime came in and he dropped out in favor of a deal to direct and produce Fox's A Night at the Museum. At the same time, Spielberg came aboard When Worlds Collide as producer.

    Sometime around September, Sommers dropped out of "Museum" due to creative differences, which led him back to When Worlds Collide. The Fox project now is in the hands of Cheaper by the Dozen director Shawn Levy.

    Sommers is also onboard as a producer for DreamWorks The Argonauts. He and his production partner Bob Ducsay also are expected to receive producer credits on When Worlds Collide. Sommers will start writing early in 2006.

    Other tentpoles in the works at Paramount are Believe It or Not!, to be directed by Tim Burton and starring Jim Carrey, and Invisible World, to be directed by Ridley Scott.

    I really hope Speilburg doesn't ruin When Worlds Collide, like he did War of The Worlds.

    Just MHO, YMMV
