Butch Cassidy Remake?

Nov. 13, 2009by:

  butch Cruise and John Sundance

Whenever idiotic fluff shows like Access Hollywood "break news" by saying there are reports, which means probably invented by some obscure blogger in dire need of attention, you can double the intensity of your hilarity. But in this case they held a poll that garnered scary results...

The always-oh-so-reliable TV "news" show says there are reports of John Travolta looking at the possibility of a BUTCH CASSIDY remake. And that's not all - he'd like to do it with Tom Cruise. Butch Scientology and the Couchdance Kid? I thought Affleck and Damon wanted to do that...

Now here's the disturbing part -'cause it was still just laughable until now- the show's website held a poll to gauge people's reaction to the idea, and the results have a whopping 33% saying it's a great idea. One third of respondents actually WANT this. Nothing scientific in their research for sure, but still, and I never -EVER- thought I'd say this: thank God Paul Newman's dead. Witnessing that is something he absolutely did not deserve.

Extra Tidbit: I can't decide it it's the remake or those two in it I'm completely against.

One ball

If this happens I will cut off my left nut and send it to the producers with a little note reading: "I thought you might need some"

I'd actually like to see Cruise play a cowboy.

RESPONSE: Hey joblo writers, since we've watching this site grow over the years into a huge movie website that's quoted on movie posters, can we get our own poll? More then 75% of the readers here are actual movie fans that respect the art of cinema and maybe our results would be a big FUCK YOU to Team Travolta.

don't effing make this

There are some remakes/reboots I can ge behind when they are done right i.e. star trek. But rebooting a franchise is different than remaking a classic film. I will never see this movie.

Clearly this is a bad idea. But it's always fun to throw in ideas of who'd be better than Travolta and Cruise:

Brad Pitt seems to be a favorite for Sundance Kid. What about these guys for Butch: Eric Bana or Hugh Jackman?

BULLSH*T

This is the worst idea ever. Lets take a classic film, with 2 of the greatest actors of all time, and remake it with 2 of the worst actors of all time. IT DOESN"T NEED TO BE REMADE! Both Travolta and Cruise need to go away. The only positive about this is that I could watch them both be killed at the end of the film.

I think this is exactly the sort of thing that might be invented knowing it'll get attention. I hope.

Screw it...nothing surprises me anymore if this is true. Let's remake "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" and we'll re-imagine "Unforgiven" while we're at it too because it's over ten years old and it needs updated for today's audience.

Petition!

We should make a petition against the remakes! How come studio execs never realies we (moviefans) HATE THEM!?
You'd only suppose to remake a film when the idea was good but the execution was bad, NOT when the whole movie was good!

What the frak??

Usually I'm on the fence when there's a remake or reboot of a movie but this I can't accept. Remake Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? Really?? I really hope this is not true. Let's "Classic" stay "Classic".

Really hope this isn't true. But if it is, I rather see Brad Pitt or perhaps Chris Pine as Sundance Kid, don't know about Butch though..

Next, it'll be "Let's remake Rocky!" "Let's remake The Godfather and have Shia Labeouf play Michael and John Goodman play Vito!" God, why can't these idiots fucking STOP with the remakes?!!!

I'd like to see Brad Pitt as Sundance Kid..

If anyone can play the Sundance Kid in a new version its Brad Pitt and for Butch Cassidy,hmm...i can't think of anybody right now.

Unremakeable

It's silly for them to even talk about remaking this considering the uniqueness and brilliance of the film. It's almost comical.

No!No!No!No!No!

I'm not usually one to whine about remakes, and I'm sure my opinion is not original, but this is a HORRIBLE idea. Easily the WORST remake announced ever! The only thing that could be worse would be remaking Indiana Jones with a new actor.... This is where I draw the line! Leave this perfect movie alone!

Terrible, just terrible.

Fuck it, let's start remaking every John Wayne/John Ford western while we're at it.

I really hope this isn't for real.
