"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ***! and I'm all out of bubblegum"

Who can forget those iconic words?

Apparently the owners of the original film which really does not need any remake! For a film that had the longest fight scene between two people in history, why remake the history books?

John Carpenter's 1988 film They Live is in line for a remake, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Universal is in the process of securing the remake rights to the cult classic, which revolves around a homeless construction worker (Roddy Piper) who finds a pair of glasses which allow him to see aliens walking among humans.

The original movie, which satirised a culture in the grip of economic downturn and greed, featured a six-minute fight scene between pro wrestler Piper and actor Keith David.

Carpenter will serve as executive producer on the remake.
