Universal is reportedly producing a 3D remake of Jaws.
And there you were thinking it was safe to go back in the water….
Cinemablend is stating that they have an exclusive inside word from the studio confirming that the success of the all-conquering Avatar has prompted them to push ahead with plans to remake Steven Spielberg's 1975 classic.
Of course, Jaws was originally remade in shockingly bad 3D back in 1983 (with Jaws 3-D), but with all the Avatar-related 3D technology floating around (and off the screen into our faces) we're hoping for a more involving effort than that.
The inside source also mentioned that the star of 30 Rock, and Kevin William's upcoming buddy comedy Cop Out, Tracy Morgan, was being lined up to play Matt Hooper, the part previously played by Richard Dreyfuss.
