Dead Heat Remake?

Looks like Michael Bay and the gang over at Platinum Dunes are on a roll. Coming off the success of their F13 remake, and with a Nightmare On Elm Street re-imagining on slate, the production company may be setting its sights on the 1988 cult classic Dead Heat. Sources say casting has already begun, and that the buddy-buddy cop team originally played by Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo will now be played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

“We figure Ben will likely be playing Roger (Mortis, the undead hero cop)” says Bay. “The comic potential is endless – remember in ‘There’s Something About Mary’ when his dick got bit by the dog? Imagine it comes off and somehow winds up in his mother-in-law’s dinner. That’s the kind of vibe we’re going for – Meet The Parents meets Dead Alive.”

Production is set to start April 1, 2010.
