The remake of CHUD has been kicking around for a while now, but it looks like some real momentum is happening. Someone sent us sides from the script that are being used to audition actors, and the title on the pages is Urban Decay – but the action on the pages themselves features lots of glowing eyed, neon blooded CHUDs.
Shock Til You Drop also got their hands on the pages, and they’ve tracked down the writers on the film: Ian Malone and Andrew Goring. I don’t know if either of these guys have ever been anywhere near New York City, but the pages that I’ve read indicate they’ve never been in a subway train – they have a bum plunging a knife through the ceiling of a subway car to kill CHUDs. I’d like to see someone try that in real life.
Meanwhile I’m still waiting for my call from the producers. Come on, guys, think about the extra added value of having the guys from CHUD be in CHUD!
