CUJO being remade- Dog origin story in question
Today, Film School Rejects reports that the classic Stephen King inspired film, Cujo, is being remade with a possible serious change to the dog's "origin story".
Here's what they had to say about it:
What’s interesting about the remake — or reboot, as it’s being called — is the title has been changed to the acronym C.U.J.O., which is said to stand for “Canine Unit Joint Operations” (IMDb lists the movie fully as Cujo: Canine Unit Joint Operation).
That sounds like it will be straying more from the King novel, which
was published in 1981. Could he be some sort of police dog instead of
the one owned by remote car mechanic? Could there be a whole unit of
rabid Cujos? Given that it’s referred to as a reboot, maybe Elliott
wants a franchise, and so maybe multiple murderous mutts. Or just one
really big one who isn’t immediately killed off.
So, what you you think about Cujo becoming C.U.J.O.? We're dying to know what you think. Sound off in the comments below or let us know on Facebook.
