Guy Ritchie might do a remake of Cannonball Run?

02.11.2011

Guy Ritchie to direct a remake of THE CANNONBALL RUN?

Maybe.

Badass Digest got wind of the news from an agency source that this was happening. The source mentioned that Ritchie wanted George Clooney for the Burt Reynolds role. They then swiftly followed up by getting in touch with Ritchie's camp who said that this was the first they had heard of it. But Clooney of all people? Devin from Badass Digest suggests that this casting choice sounds a little contrived and obvious, leading him to believe that it might be something only in the planning stages.

Do we need another CANNONBALL RUN? Don't we say this anytime a reboot is the topic of conversation? This movie worked for 1981. Of course you can reboot it, but Ritchie would make it something else completely. It wouldn't be as corny or goofy or have Adrienne Barbeau's legendary jugs. I like Ritchie's films (except SWEPT AWAY), I just don't see this as a match.

Maybe it will be just a rumor, although knowing Hollywood these days, anything is possible.

It was funny back in the day, and actually Clooney is a good choice to replace Burt Reynolds...same masculine alpha-male personality.

But no, we don't need to see this rebooted.

The definitely need to bring back Jackie Chan in a bigger role this time!

This could be cool. I think the George Clooney idea is pretty cool. It worked for Rat Race which was a remake of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

I might be the dumbest person on Earth, but arent the "remake" and "reboot" concepts NOT the same thing ?
When a film is 30 years old (and its sequel 27 years old) shouldnt it be called a remake and not reboot ?

I feel like there has been a lot of misuse of the word "reboot" ever since it came up in the last few years. To me a reboot and a remake arent the same at all. This is definately a remake ... and I dont care about it.

First, I gotta say BAD IDEA. Second, awww the sweet memories of watching this classic as a child. Funny to read the cast on that poster and see Terry Bradshaw, who had maybe 2 minutes of screen time, get billing, but Jackie Chan wasn't popular enough to. I always pictured a proper sequel with other ex-Bonds getting in on the action . . .

Didn't anyone learn their lesson trying to remake It's A Mad Mad Mad World? Why bother??? Remakes are absolutely the lowest form of entertainment and a blight on society.

They remade IAMMMMW? Shit, I'm glad I missed that. But good call...another ensemble-cast movie that worked for that time and those actors.

So what I'm hearing is that he won't be finishing up the RocknRolla trilogy.

Well, that sucks.

CGI DOM DELUISE!!!

This really needs b-movie stars. Like the surreal world meets the amazing race. Andy Dick and Martin Short vs Gerardo and Ricky Martin vs Arsenio Hall and Glenn Beck vs Montel Williams and Kato Kaelin etc

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO...NO!

I'm not even going to bother reading the damn article. The entire movie DEPENDED on the fact that it had the stars it did - they are all IRREPLACEABLE. The only freakin' people still alive are Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, and freakin' Peter Fonda! What the hell could they POSSIBLY be THINKING?!?!

And no, I don't think this is a good idea. Not at all.

As long as Madonna is not involved, I think the remake should be okay.

i'd rather see Guy do more original films

i dug sherlock holmes and i'm looking forward to the sequel but I miss Ritchie's originality... imo.
