With the success of the Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (it’s awful by the way), news is that one of the long-in-production remakes of The Wizard of Oz may actually get made. Oh, here’s a twist: one of the ideas is to do a dark, spooky version.
I can’t wait for a whole series of dark and gritty remakes of classic movies. But I think Hollywood isn’t going far enough. So listen up, studio execs, because I have an idea for you: you know that movie Taxi Driver? Yeah, the “You talkin’ to me?” movie. Everyone loves that line. What I’m saying is, let’s remake that one, only this time we’ll make it dark and gritty! Feel free to leave me your e-mail address in a comment, and I’ll tell you where to send my check.
