After a storm ravages a small town in Maine, David Drayton notices an ominous mist gliding in from the mountains across the lake. He decides to head into town with his son Billy and neighbor Brent for supplies. Once safely inside a local grocery store, The Mist reveals itself to be more than a weather anomaly, it is the harbinger of death. There are monsters in the clouds, a result of Project Arrowhead, and as the days go on – and as religious nut Mrs. Carmody fires up the crowd – things inside the store continue to escalate into one of the most polarizing endings of this century.
Stephen King’s The Mist was adapted in 2007 by acclaimed director Frank Darabont, and will soon be reimagined as a television series. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to dissect both the story and the film, modernize the concept, and even envision our own NEW ending for the controversial tale. It’s time to remake Stephen King’s The Mist RIGHT!
Clips selected from the 2007 film The Mist.

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-monthly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
