Never heard of him but it should go without saying that you don't remake VIDEODROME, of all things.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

I would ask "Why?", but it really doesn't matter to people in Hollywood.

In the guy's defense THE RING adaptation was pretty good. It doesn't matter who the screenwriter is, though, VIDEODROME is just a bad candidate for a remake. It's too unique, and too much of its time.

This reeks of the Total Recall remake of last in year in that there is no great demand for it.

You'd be less satisfied with the remake. Ehren Kruger's writing is like that of a fourteen-year-old's fan fiction.

He's terribly immature and the US version of The Ring was the only good thing he wrote. Mind you since it is a remake, it already had a source material to use. Kruger tried to "localize" it without putting in his own garbage.

Keep in mind Kruger is responsible for this...

Well, the original took place when the illicitness of pirate television signals was still evocative. How would that work today when the internet has basically democratized everything?

I always thought it was about subliminal advertising, kinda like that Lee Majors movie.
Then again, I never really got it. Lookingup

The Twins are pretty much the main reason I only saw Revenge of the Fallen once and now that I know Kruger's known for immaturity that also explains the "wtf, panties?" moment and why Devistator had robo-testicles even though none of the machines he's comprised of on film have wrecking balls.
