  1. I’m so excited about this I am speechless! I can’t wait for the movie….awesome fantastic news!!!

  2. YES THIS IS GREAT!!!!!!!

  3. Long live The Doctor!

    I do hope they keep the ever-present eerie and menacing atmosphere of the original two.

    Also, they might as well go “old-style”, with most scenes shot in-studio, to get that look I’m certain most Phibes’s fans crave for.

  4. I do have to say that Malcolm is a great choice. He definitely has his work cut out for him. Noetheless he has damn big shoes to fill. Break a leg, guys…! :)

  5. Please let the fans know if this is a continuation of the series, and not just some franchise reboot of the original film. Will there be any back story of the people previous films in the new one?
