His proposed "House of Re-Animator" now only a memory, Stuart Gordon is teaming up with Amicus Productions (which released his "Stuck" drama) to helm "The Thing on the Doorstep," which he wrote with Dennis Paoli.
Gordon told Fangoria that he hopes to begin filming in the fall. "It follows the short story pretty closely, and what’s great about it is that, as far as I know, it’s the only Lovecraft tale that has a strong female character. Normally we have to invent one, but for the first time, we didn’t have to do that. We’re also working with Amicus again, because we had so much fun the first time around."
