Simon West’s The Blob To Be An Origins Story

It’s the question that has haunted fans of  strange cinema for decades, “What is The Blob and what is its motivation?”  And now, that question is about to be answered. Yeah, that’s right – the latest remake of The Blob will be an origins tale. Let that sink in for a moment.

While speaking to Den of Geek director Simon West let forth the following quote “The Blob itself will be more sophisticated, more along the lines of Alien and Predator and things like that – much more science-based, the way Jurassic Park made you believe you could bring back dinosaurs with a bit of DNA from a mosquito. This will be much more explained on where the blob comes from and how it works. It’ll be a much more sophisticated creature – because it is a monster movie rather than a horror in that sense.”

So, what do you think, do we need The Blob to be a “more sophisticated creature”?  Seems they might be over thinking this one a bit.  Sound off below, interested in your thoughts.
