Isn't it some kind of law (or sin) to remake a cult classic? Especially a movie that is a cult classic because it is, you know, incredibly bad?

Well, it should be. But it's already too late. The Hollywood Reporter posts that we're getting a remake of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!whether it is a crime against humanity or not. (I am probably being too harsh, the sequel did launch the career of George Clooney.)

The movie will be directed by Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine, creators of the insanely popular Ask a Ninja Web series. "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! is the masterwork of a generation," Nichols said. "We can only aspire to recapture that magic." Well, I like their sense of humor about it. Frankly, though, I think Nichols and Sarine could do better -- their ninja was on NPR! 80 million Web hits can't be wrong. Why not give them the money to tackle something original?

Surely a remake of Frogs can't be too far behind.
