Samuel L. Jackson Is Going to Face The Blob!

Fresh off his fight with King Kong in Kong: Skull Island, Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed his appearance in a new remake of The Blob, which he announced back in 2015.

Just yesterday we gave an update about the long-gestating remake, which will be directed by Simon West (Con-Air, The Expendables 2, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, When a Stranger Calls) and produced by Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten.

Now, in an interview with The Toronto Sun, Jackson lets loose that he still plans on being a part of this remake, which comes from Goldcrest Films.

Jackson tells the site, “I’ve been running from or chasing King Kong, Godzilla, the Wolfman, whatever, since I was a kid [in Chatanooga, Tenn.]. We’d go home and pretend to do all that stuff. So I’m doing Kong for the same reason I’ll probably be doing The Blob. I just got a call the other day (where the producers) said they finally got their money from China to do Blob.”

The site also states that filming of The Blob will take place before Jackson goes off to film his parts for Avengers: Infinity War.

You can read the full interview at the link above.

Synopsis:
A terrifying reimagining of an enduring horror icon, based on the 1958 sci-fi classic that starred Steve McQueen and has thrilled genre fans since. When a band of miners uncover something hidden deep beneath the earth, they unwittingly unleash a hideous creature beyond imagination. Now the townsfolk must fight back… before it destroys everything.
