Brooks to intro 'Young Frankenstein,' talk about Wilder

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Young Frankenstein" will come alive in theaters once again on Oct. 5, with a live introduction from writer-director Mel Brooks, who will pay tribute to the classic spoof's late star Gene Wilder. The intro will be broadcast from the 20th Century Fox Lot in 500 theaters nationwide, according to an announcement from Fathom Events Tuesday.

In addition to touring the studio lot, where much of the movie was filmed, Brooks is expected reminisce about his friend and collaborator Wilder, who died last Sunday from complications from Alzheimer's disease.

"Young Frankenstein" is one of Wilder's most fondly remembered films. The announcement comes on the heels of AMC Theaters bringing other Wilder favorites "Blazing Saddles" and "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" back to theaters this past weekend.
