    isn't that what that guy did with Kung Pow: Enter the Fist?

    stuck himself into footage from an old chop socky film, and re-cut it and re-do the dialogue into a completely different story?

    Just another example that Hollywood is running out of ideas. If you can't think of anything new, rehash the old stuff.

    Hopefully they'll be just as good as those NBA commercials with Frank Sinatra. [​IMG]

    Dead mean don't wear plaid, know what I mean?

    I don't know. If it's a film as a whole, I don't see a problem with it if you keep the original, non-adultered version available.

    That is a big if.

    On another hand, it is sad if that is all you can come up with creatively. One film is one thing; a whole library tells us that you have completely run out of ideas.

    I dont see what the big deal is, Its been done before, and Im sure could turn out quite funny. I dont think its sacrilegious to do it,its not like it would be destroying the film,,I think theres alot worse being done to films. Everyone would and SHOULD know its for fun,its not like there gonna go in a take the negatives and change them. People get crazy sometimes with these things.

    I thought Steve Martin did it best in DEAD MEN DON'T WEAR PLAID. Very funny and very clever.

    Well, I guess this all depends on how it's handled. If for example Meyers plans on remaking Vertigo by inserting a subplot with Fat Bastard then someone with some brains should nix the idea now. If he plans on doing some kind of project like Forest Gump where he appears sporadically in different moments in history, only in this case film history then I'm all for it. Sadly, the impression I get from reading that article is that he just wants to re-release old movies with himself in them. [​IMG]

    I was waiting for someone to mention this! Maybe now we'll finally get that possible nude scene from Juliet [​IMG]
