Eisner to direct ‘Creature’

Breck Eisner is returning to the director’s chair to helm Universal’s remake of “Creature From the Black Lagoon,” which Gary Ross is producing via his Larger Than Life banner. The project is the second feature directing assignment for the son of the former Disney chief Michael Eisner, who made his debut on last spring’s “Sahara.” Ross has penned the current “Creature” draft, a present-day update of the 1954 monster classic. He has a particular interest in the project: His father, Arthur A. Ross, wrote the screenplay for the original. “As a kid, I remember loving Jack Arnold’s original version of this film,” Eisner said. “What I really want to do is update an iconic image from the ’50s and bring in more of the sci-fi sensibility of ‘Alien’ or John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing.'”
