Is there any movie from at least a decade ago that Hollywood won’t remake? Pretty sure not. And that includes, obviously, movies that are themselves remakes. I’m fine with the concept of everything being a rehash of what came before, but at least try to fool me with new movie titles, Hollywood, please.
As fans learned in Season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, its darkest and arguably best season (don’t @ me), Buffy should be allowed to rest in peace. To resurrect her would be a cruel and ultimately selfish act. So, of course, network execs want to do it.
Paramount has delayed the premiere of its Heathers reboot, citing the Parkland shooting as the reason for the push.
Deadline reported on Wednesday that 20th Century Fox has been taking steps toward developing a remake of the 1980 comedy 9 to 5, and sources say the studio has been courting Rashida Jones to co-write the script along with creator Pat Resnick.
It’s a good thing the remake of Overboard is coming out on 4/20 because I will certainly need 100 pounds of marijuana to get through this trainwreck!!
You could say this about every remake, reboot, and nostalgia-driven television program being made today, but I’d really like to be clear: Hocus Pocus does not need to be fucked with. Please leave it alone.
Here is some truly excellent news for some very specific people: Curtis Sittenfeld’s Pride and Prejudice adaptation Eligible is getting a pilot.
What do you see when you die?
There’s bad, there’s so bad it’s good, there’s so bad it’s gone past good and back to bad, there’s excruciating white heat on genitals, there’s eyeball rupturing, and then there’s the Dirty Dancing remake that aired on ABC last night. Wow, just wow. The entire idea of this needless update seemed to be to hit all of…
Hold onto your petticoats and gather your pickled limes: Yet another Little Women remake is in the works.
Lifetime’s first teaser-trailer for its Beaches remake is the visual equivalent of a slumber party group sob. There are hugs (so many hugs). There’s a beautiful child with a single tear meandering down her face. There’s ye olde slow-motion run through a hospital corridor.
Some delightful news: Ice Cube is teaming up with Disney and Tommy Kail, the Tony-award winning director of Hamilton for a “modern and musical” take on that old chestnut, Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
Dynasty is the next popular classic to be unnecessarily resurrected for the modern era. The series is getting a reboot with the help of Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
Hollywood cannot leave well enough alone and so in keeping with the tradition of rebooting things that don’t need to be rebooted, director Jon Favreau is stepping up to the plate with a live action remake of The Lion King.
Warner Bros has just green lit a long-percolating remake of A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper, who also plans to star with Lady Gaga. Expect to see some A C T I N G in this picture.
Nobody puts Jennifer Grey in a Dirty Dancing remake (sorry, it was low-hanging fruit). Although she was offered a role in ABC’s upcoming television movie, she respectfully declined.
Tilda Swinton apparently wants to star in an updated adaptation of Auntie Mame as the iconic eccentric, socialite, and vital role model for young women. This is, obviously, the best possible news.
Here is your first glimpse of Disney’s latest live-action remake, Beauty and the Beast, coming to theaters March 2017.
Tom Hooper, the prolific director of humorless Oscar-bait including Les Miserables, will direct a movie version of the musical Cats. And I’ll just say if I have to sit through a dirtied-up Anne Hathaway scream-belting “Memory” I swear to God I will burn the theater down.
