I have been approached about a property that was a fairly large, though not very well made film in the 80's.
I have done a little research about it on the net and the recent talks of a remake has got people split right down the middle. Many people seem to hate the idea that Hollywood is constantly remaking films, the general chatter is "Why can;t they come up with original ideas". I for one am often one of those people. The problem is, remakes seem to make a hell of a lot of cash despite the opinions that they are cheap in some artistic way.
Any opinions? What do I do... go for the paycheck? Walk away out of honor for the original film?
This is not Citizen Cane we are talking about, the original film is a classic are most originals are hailed, but it is by no means an amazing film... The original source material is amazing, so is it cheap to consider that the remake could actually be better?
I would love opinions on this.
