Should we have a Remakes sub-forum ?
And I just watched The Changeling, too....
Hasn't The Birds already been remade (for TV)?
Now, Platinum Dunes has a better track record than most studios (Dark Castle I'm looking at you) when it comes to these remakes (with AMITYVILLE HORROR, which was smart in taking an iconic, but deeply flawed film to remake...
I don't think there was anything smart about The Amityville Horror remake. It was atrocious beyond words and as far as I'm concerned probably the worst of all the recent remakes. Didn't see The Wicker Man remake though, perhaps that can top it?
I know they made a sequel for TV, that's apparently pretty bad and only on LD, but I don't think a remake.
They are remaking almost every single horror film ever made.
I can't wait for the Goonies remake starring Chad Michael Murray, Jared Padalecki, Nick Cannon, Haley Joel Osment, Dakota Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, Paris Hilton, Hilary (and Haylie) Duff, Kirk Cameron, Fred Savage and guest starring Burt Reynolds as DEHR SLOTH~~!!!
Burt Reynolds would have to be wearing his cowboy hat and sporting a moustache circa Smokey & the Bandit in character as the Sloth.
:lol: Nick Cannon!
Aside: my buddy is a teacher and for a Friday viewing, he wanted to bring in The Goonies to show his class. Before he did, he rented the DVD to give it antoher viewing just to refresh--and he was surprised at how violent the opening was. The gunshots and murders--ha ha! I'd forgotten too. Well, he feared damaging the children, or, rather, the parents' claims the film damaged their precious children, so he didn't end up bringing it in.
I do always forget about the beginning to the film, though.
Goode Lord! I can see them remaking The Birds although it doesn't need to be done. I didn't think The Changeling and Near Dark were well known enough to the general public to be remade.
Buried in one of a few recent Variety stories on the state of the horror genre was this cool nugget of information: Guillermo del Toro has joined Rogue Pictures’ upcoming remake of THE CHANGELING as a producer. The busy del Toro’s attachment to the redux of Peter Medak’s 1979 film, which starred George C. Scott as a man getting to the bottom of a frightening haunting in his new mansion home, is the latest twist to a project has been in development since the very beginning of Rogue’s existence. THE INVASION’s Dave Kajganich wrote the initial script, and it was even reported a while back that Medak himself might helm the redux, but no other talent is currently confirmed.
I'd enjoy a The Birds remake.
This is some of the best news I've heard in awhile. I love The Changeling, but to get someone of Del Toro's ability to helm the remake is outstanding.
Near Dark...being remade....wtf? Leave it alone people...just leave it alone...
