It's been a heck of a long time since Bill S. Preston Esquire helmed a movie but 'Bill and Ted' star Alex Winter is coming back to take on a new 3D remake of 'The Gate', a late 80's horror that starred Stephen Dorff whereby 3 young children accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard. A new teaser poster for the remake (below) has appeared and also some more details came to light during a recent interview with Mr Winter.
"When best friends Miles and Terry discover a mysterious crystalline rock in Miles's back yard, they quickly dig up the lawn in search of more. Instead, they unearth the Gate—the opening to an underground chamber containing terrifying evil.
The teenagers soon realize the horror they have unleashed, as one dire event follows another. With supernatural fiends invading suburbia, it's up to the kids to find the secret that will lock the Gate forever...if it's not too late."
According to the interview with Screen Read the shoot should commence at any time now and be ready for an Autumn 2011 release. Winter, along with Kerric Macdonald, co-wrote the script and even better is that 'Alien' designer himself H.R. Giger will be designing the creatures!
