Some twenty years after allegedly being fired (by fax) from a film that he had developed for years, filmmaker Richard Stanley looks set to actually get to make The Island of Dr. Moreau.

All of the way back in 1996, Stanley was ejected from the set of the in-production movie, starring the likes of Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer, and replaced with John Frankenheimer. The fact that Stanley looks set to move forward with a new version, is looking to be partly because of David Gregory, who made the 2014 documentary Lost Soul. Stanley explained to Birth.Movies.Death:

“At this stage, I can’t say exactly by who, and how long it will take, but the project does live again, largely thanks to David. We’re currently scripting and designing the thing. It’s going to be an all-new screenplay and an all-new cast of beast-people; the original creatures are copyrighted »
