Billy Jack is back!

Mar. 5, 2002by: Mike Sampson

More proof that Hollywood has just plum run out of original ideas comes word that Keanu Reeves will star in the remake the classic 1971 pic BILLY JACK.  Whose behind this you ask?  Well none other than the director, writer and star of the original film Tom Laughlin.  The original film followed a Native American Vietnam veteran who from what I can tell, did a lot of stereotypical 60s-era things.  He fought the establishment, helped out some groovy runaway teens and fought to save horses who were being slaughtered.   All the while he used his military training to kick the butt of anyone who got in his way.  Laughlin sold the rights to Jersey Films (where Danny DeVito will produce) and is expected to work on this film in a producing role.  All I can say is, thank God Keanu has the MATRIX to fall back on...
