Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.17.09] post apocalyptic movie news



The boys at Collider are reporting that Harlan Ellison recently let it slip that a Japanese production company is interested in acquiring the rights to his seminal 1975 post-apocalypse short story "A Boy and His Dog."

If you're not already in the know, there's already a decent film version of A Boy and his Dog that was made in 1975 by director L.Q. Jones. It starred a pre Miami Vice Don Johnson. Ellison continued the post-apocalyptic story of Vic and Blood (the dog he shares a telepathic link with) in graphic novel form in "Vic and Blood."


Except for the fact that the yet unnamed Japanese company plans to take a remake of ABAHD beyond the original story and into the graphic novel territory, that's pretty much all we know at this point.

great news. I always liked that movie and wanted to see more. And since it's Japanese and it could be even anime - double joy.

This is one film I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of actually.

Bet they won't keep the ending 'joke' from the 1970s film! Ellison hated it, apparently.
