Acclaimed horror comedy filmmaker, Christopher Landon is returning to the genre to write and direct a remake of the classic 1990 movie, Arachnophobia. The filmmaker, who’s known for scribing and helming the acclaimed 2020 slasher comedy, Freaky, will be working on the upcoming remake for production company Amblin Partners, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
