One simple fact of life can no longer be ignored and we do ourselves a great disservice ignoring the elephant in the room. Hollywood is stuck on Remakes and Sequels.
We now know for certain that Hollywood is dead set on providing two types of remakes;
nostalgic movies that performed well in the past or formulaic sequels, atleast until the last Baby Boomer dies sometime in December of 2065.
Since this is apparently non negotiable which Film or Sequel would you most like to see created and name your dream machine all-star cast.
I would redo Moby Dick because of the timeless message and themes contained within Melville's classic tale. That's bullsh*t!
I really just want to see how completely kick ass awesome Moby would be with modern CGI.
Yeah Baby! It would make JAWS look like Benji.
Maybe I could have a subliminal Neo-Eco twist for audiences in whaling countries like Japan, Norway and Iceland. No better make it blatant.
*note to self , get Al Gore and Michael Moore to rewrite the screenplay.
For the purists in the audience I would hire Ridley Scott to direct and cast Ian McKellen as Ahab.
For the ladies, George Clooney as Ishmael.
C'mon people this ain't no arthouse flower, ya gotta fill those seats!
All of the expendable doomed seamen extra roles would be beefed up and filled with old school-action guys, Stallone, Schwartzenegger, Willis, Snipes, Seagal, Van Damme, Norris, what a hoot!
C'mon, I want people to go see it.
Now you PICK A FLICK>...
