According to Dread Central it's a possibility:

After years and years away from our genre, veteran Bob Clark is all set up to make a return to us in a big way. We announced earlier about the Glen Morgan/James Wong remake of Clark’s Black Christmas, which Clark will serve as producer on, but now the man is getting ready to head back to the director’s chair.

Who better to handle a remake of his 1973 zombie film Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things than Clark himself? No one, that’s who, since that’s the way Clark had his name first recognized, it only makes sense his comeback should start there, too. Togeher with Canadian producer Victor Solnicki (the man behind such films as Cronenberg’s The Brood and Scanners), Clark has written and will direct the remake of his own film, currently budgeted at $12 million.

The original story is about some kids who dig up a corpse named Orville, which they use in a ritual to bring the dead back to life. Things get messy to say the least. We’ll have more as it becomes available, but on an interesting side note did you know that Clark’s classic 1982 comedy Porky’s is still the top-grossing Canadian film of all time? Amazing.

As with anything reported on the internet, take it with a grain of salt...
