Scarlett Johansson Creature bait?

As some of you may know, Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be the lead female in the remake of Creature From the Black Lagoon. She seems like a good choice for the Creature's amorous attention. I hope that they include the swimming scene --- any excuse to get Johansson in a bikini.

On the downside, I am a little nervous about comments made by Universal chairman Donna Langley. She said, "we settled upon an idea, which is to take it out of the horror genre, put it more in the action-adventure genre and make it present day...". Wait what? WTF. You want to take Classic Horror out of the Horror genre?

I don't want to tell a "Chairman" her job, but when I go to a comedy I expect funny,when I go to a horror movie I expect to be scared, and when I go to an action movie I expect to see shit blow up. You can add a little of those elements to a horror movie but not replace horror with those elements.

Oh well, this wouldn't be the first time Hollywood has ruined a childhood favorite.
