Ideas for remakes of classics get thrown around in Hollywood nearly every day. Most, especially when its remaking a classic, annoy me. Some don’t just annoy me, but make me very angry. Today, I found out that Independent studio Cypress Moon (yes, indie studios can make mistakes too) is planning an unnecessary remake of the 1967 classic “Bonnie and Clyde.” “Bonnie and Clyde” was known along with “The Graduate” for being one of the films from 1967 that broke America from its innocence and hinted at the growing counterculture movement. It’s lightning fast, excessive violence doesn’t fail to shock today and its story is still as entertaining as ever.
So, why is it being remade? And an even bigger question, why is the remake planning on starring “Lizzie McGuire”‘s Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers, star of four “Air Bud” movies and “MVP: Most Valuable Primate?” I wish this last sentence was a joke, but unfortunately it’s as real as Kevin Costner’s Oscar.
Hopefully this idea will go the way of Michael Bay’s “Rosemary’s Baby” remake and get axed as soon as possible.
