Remaking the remake

Let’s make a quick (but far from exhaustive) list of upcoming planned remakes:

– Footloose with Efron.

– Bienvenue chez les Chtis (aka The Sticks).
Do I need to remind people that the story was very local-based?

– A 1963 Akira Kurosawa classic (High and Low), by David Mamet and directed by Mike Nichols.

– A remake of another Kurosowa remake (yes you read that right), The Seven Samurai by the Weinstein Co.

– A Hellraiser “relaunch”, by Pascal Laugier.


– Melrose Place, the spin-off of BH 90210.
Will the new version be considered a spin-off of the new 90210 or a spin-off of the old 90210? Or a spin-off of the spin-off of another show?
I’m confused.

  1. Alright, I was just kidding when I mentioned a Melrose Place reboot in my 90210 review. I promise not to even think about joking about a new version of Models, Inc. I too am confused by the spin-off logic.

    As for the others, I may see the Footloose remake (I love the original), but I’m a bit upset they couldn’t have gotten a manlier guy to play the lead. Yes, I said it – Kevin Bacon was/is manly. And ooh — The Seven Samurai…again.

  2. I found out about it this morning, and now I’m trying to write an article on it for my school paper. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the whole concept.

    I promised in my 90210 review to actually watch if they ever made a Melrose Place 2.0. I didn’t expect it to actually happen…. It was just supposed to be a joke… :(
