We couldn't come up with something where it felt like it was relevant and we could add something to it other than what it was so we're now not going to be doing that film.
Instead, the remakers of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "The Amityville Horror" and "The Hitcher" are proceeding with their remakes of "A Nightmare on Elm Street," "Friday the 13th" and Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."
God, whose 1966 TIME magazine cover story made a cameo appearance as an old doctor's office copy in Polanski's film, was not available for comment.
