For those of you worried about the large number of remakes in Hollywood right now, you may want to give Twilight a shout of thanks. According to Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller, the teenie vampire movie killed his plans to remake Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark.

Fuller tells Empire“I think that Twilight was the same type of thing we were going for
although Near Dark was a much darker, sexier, rated R version of that.
But I’m concerned that, conceptually, that Near Dark and Twilight are
too similar in terms of a vampire movie. For now, that movie is on

What’s he’s talking about is the human falling for a vampire concept, which is done in reverse in Near Dark.

I don’t think Near Dark needs a remake, but I’d certainly rather see a hard R version of that story than New Moon‘s impending PG-13 boredom.
