It was recently announced that the 2012 cult classic action game Lollipop Chainsaw is getting a full remake, with Dragami Games handling development. The remake is being worked on by a team that consists of many members of the original title’s development team, but a couple of key figures aren’t going to be involved.

Giochi Suda a.k.a. Suda51 was the original game’s creative director, while filmmaker James Gunn of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad fame served as a writer on it, though neither of them will be involved in the remake. The same was made clear by both Gunn and Suda over on Twitter, with Gunn saying that he doesn’t “know anything about” the remake, and Suda saying that “Grasshopper Manufacture has nothing to do with development or anything.”

Grasshopper Manufacture is, of course, now owned by NetEase, while Gunn hasn’t written for any game since Lollipop Chainsaw (or any game before it, for that matter).

The Lollipop Chainsaw remake will be out in 2023. No platforms have been announced for the game yet.
