Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined The Blob Remake. Goldcrest Films sought out the popular actor and Samuel L. Jackson accepted. Jackson will star as “a biochemistry professor attempting to thwart the other-worldly predator discovered deep within the earth.” Simon West (The Expendables 2, Con Air) is set to direct the film. Jack Harris will executive produce this new Blob film as a returning producer to the franchise after directing The Blob (1958). Also producing are Richard Saperstein (Se7en, The Mist) and Brian Witten (Final Destination, Friday the 13th (2009)). They are also attached to the film adaptation of Stephen King‘s Cell (2015) movie which also stars Jackson. Chris Haney (Avatar, Avengers Assemble) will handle the VFX in post-production. With this many talents on the film, I am expecting something great.
