News: FilmNation to Produce Science Fiction Remake of Charlie Chaplin's The Kid

By now, we all know that nothing is sacred. Even the classics will all be remade in some form or fashion whether we like it or not. 

Today, word has been released that FilmNation is in the early stages of recreating Charlie Chaplin's film The Kid as an animated science fiction release. It will be a loose re-imagining of the 1921 black and white motion picture.

Christian Volckman (Renaissance) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are set to direct this new version of the movie. FilmNation is handling international distribution of the release with UTA Independent Film Group handling North America.
