Despite having no feature films on their resume, Hollywood has faith in cousins Mark and Brian Gunn to further their franchises.  Paramount has hired the Gunns to pen the script for the remake of The Monster Squad; Rob Cohen (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) is on board to produce and direct Squad, which the studio is hoping to kickstart a family-oriented franchise.  The original 1987 Monster Squad centers around a cadre of kids who try to stop a plot by Dracula, Frankenstien, The Wolf Man, The Gill Man, and The Mummy to rule the world.

Heat Vision reports that the Cousins Gunn most recently worked on the script for the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, which is going now by the name Journey to the Mysterious Island.  Brad Peyton has signed on to direct, with Josh Hutcherson taking over lead duties in the possible absence of original star Brendan Fraser.
