Original Ideas? In Hollywood?

It’s not enough we’re going to be treated to an eco-remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still with Keanu Reeves as a butt-kicking Christ figure, but also in the works is Rocky Horror, remade by MTV, the channel that brought you Joe’s Apartment and twenty-four-hour music videos Reality TV. If that doesn’t fill you with antici…

    So what’s next, MTV’s going to remake The Godfather as a hip ‘n trendy Italian goth college kid who just wants to help his parents with the "family business"? The American Hero was flawed and dated but still a classic.

    No way. Absolutely not. How can they possibly do better than the original Rocky Horror? I’ll boycott the movie on principle.

      It appears they only intend this version for the small screen.

      Does this make it more or less of a Bad Idea?

      It’s not even a question of "better"; how can they possibly get the point? I haven’t actually seen it myself, but I’m familiar with the phenomenon, and the cheese, surreality, and sheer oddness are major factors in its popularity. But it’s too big a phenomenon to be remade easily; would they be remaking the original stage play? the movie, as a spoof of 70s sci-fi and horror? the movie as its own entity? Will they even think it that far through?
