Confirmed: Winter Tackling The Gate Remake in 3-D
May 17, 2009

Update: At a midnight screening of Freaked at the New Beverly in Los Angeles, Winter confirmed he is currently attached to The Gate 3D redo and is now in pre-production!

There's a new director on board the remake of The Gate and it's a perfect fit. According to Production Weekly, Alex Winter (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and, Bogus Journey) is tackling the redo of the hellish 1987 creature feature. Furthermore, he's doing it in 3-D.

Winter's been juggling an acting, writing and directing career for years since his "Bill" days. In '93 he helmed the FX-heavy comedy Freaked (a fave of mine) and Fever in '99. Recently he's been directing episodes of Ben 10 for the Cartoon Network. Winter's sensibilities seem ideal for The Gate's tale of three kids who open a portal to hell in their backyard.

Stephen Dorff starred in the original film directed by Tibor Takács.

Randall Cook was once attached to the redo, but as he told us in September, he was not pleased with the script and backed off the project.

I loved the original "Gate" movie (filmed in Kleinberg, Ontario!), so I hope they don't f-up the remake.

I can't see where 3-d makes a needless remake any more interesting. The original was actually one of the best kid horror films there is.

The Gate was like the best movie ever when I was little. A remake sounds good to me. Some movies they shouldn't bother to even remake, but this one is good cause with the chessy 80's graphics, imagine how everything would look in this era. They should make it a little darker.

Holy crap thats a movie I have not thought of in years. I can't wait to see how they update this one.

I liked THE GATE as a kid, but always felt that it could've been better. Considering Alex Winter is at the helm of this, a GATE remake could prove interesting.

I loved the first Gate movie. The sequel? Blech. So many holes in it that it could have been mistaken for swiss cheese.

It'd be interesting to see a remake of this. I just hope that they don't cop out & make it as bad as some of the recent remakes have been.

More then half, maybe 2/3rds of the horror news these days is about remakes.

I still remember the blood chilling moment when one of the creatures is looking through the bannisters from the top of the stairs.
I hope they can make the update just as creepy and don't spoil it by playing up to the 3D element too much. The original was a great movie so I really hope the remake does it justice.

The upgraded technology available for the visuals make this a film worth reduxing. And 3-D? Having the giant beast from the gate erupting from the floor in 3-D would be amazing....

a guy that only have been directing ben 10 cartoons. And made one of radical film of all time. He's doing this?
Expectation low.
