    This sounds ridiculous to me. The original is essentially a time capsule, depicting the late 60s protest movement (it contains just about every counterculture cliche that was popular at the time). What would the "new" Billy Jack cover that wasn't covered then? And if it instead tries to be a period piece and cover the same ground, the idea strikes me as laughable.

    From the above link:

    "A tough, spiritual Vietnam veteran who's half-Native American, Billy Jack challenged the establishment and championed a group of runaway teens as well as the environment in an Arizona town. A man of few words, he was quick with fists and feet."

    Hasn't this already been remade several times by Steven Seagal?

    I really do agree with you Robert. This is pointless, as well as needless. Hollywood get's sillier and siller with these remakes.

    I would only see another Billy Jack movie if it were made with Muppets. Like the cool Jim Henson Muppets not the crappy Brian Henson Muppets.

    The Muppets Billy Jack YEAH!
