Ugh (UPDATED! UPDATED! UPDATED!)


Bad News - Ol' H-Wood is remaking The Long Good Friday.


Want more bad news? The director who is attached to direct also directed:

Yes! It's Paul W.S. Anderson time! He also directed the classic films Soldier, Resident Evil, Event Horizon, and Mortal Kombat! Be afraid.

UPDATE-Now I've just read that Fox is remaking TAPS, fucking TAPS, man! Christ! To be written & directed by Frank E. Flowers (Haven). And most of us out here can't break into this business???????

I kind of dug Event Horizon. The rest of them are plain awful.

Be very afraid.

Spanish Prisoner said...

Yeah, Event Horizon is a cool movie. Probably had a good script and Sam Neill kicked his ass to right direction.

Patrick J. Rodio said...

It was ok, but I thought Sam Neill's descent into a raging madman was way too fast.

Why don't they remake stuff like Rhinestone or Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot or Ghost Dad or Shanghai Surprise... bad movies that need to be redone... I absolutely hate it when they fuck with a classic

They're only getting started wait till they start making remakes of the remakes hehe....I just wonder if a producer would ever touch a possible remake of something like Star Wars ( A New Hope) or the Godfather movies...nothing is sacred in H'wood anymore.

Unnecessary sequels and remakes...big indicator of fear and/or laziness.

I've got dibs on remaking Star Wars Episodes 1 - 3. I called it. Fair and square.

It's a shame the the bearded one will never let that happen.
