I found out yesterday that Neil Labute (In the Company of Men, Your friends & Neighbors) is doing a remake of the WICKER MAN. huh? |
WTF? Now, that's just silly. No wait, it's stupid. And worse yet, Nicolas Cage will be playing the main character (the sheriff). I realize that hollywood is plain out of ideas and that it would be lost these days without the 'remake' but come on. I got pushed too far when i found out about Solaris being redone. Cuz, that was just plain unnecessary ( & insulting). The thing is, the Wicker Man is a bad movie. I mean, it's good because it's bad. It's cheesy and creepy and bizarre, the acting is (mostly) bad and the soundtrack is great. It has a cult following for these reasons and more. What are they gonna do? Shyamalan it up, like the Vilage? Ugh....
I guess nothing is sacred. I'm gonna propose some 'remakes' to hollywood, get on the bandwagon...
SWEET MOVIE: starring Charlize Theron as Captain Ann, Kiera Nightly as Miss Canada, Cillian Murphy as the Potempkin Sailor. Guest starring: Lars Von Trier & the cast of the Idiots as the Otto Muehl baby commune, and Billy-Bob Thornton as Mr.Kapital (the man with the golden penis).
Directed by: Robert Altman
huh? Whattya say? Am i the only one getting a kick out of this???
Hmm... How about a remake of ERASERHEAD done by Speilberg???
(I was gonna suggest LIQUID SKY but realized the updated screenplay is probably already sitting on some hollywood jackasses desk as i write this).
ok, i'm done.
