Japan is remaking Ghost?

Jun. 10, 2010by:

Well at this point I'm used to America remaking any and every Japanese movie that’s ever existed, but it hardly ever works the other way around.

Paramount is planning to remake GHOST for Japanese audiences, who recently have been reluctant to see subtitled or dubbed American movies in the theaters. The studio believes that if a legitimate attempt is made to Japan-ify a movie for the audience (like that term? I made it up), then they will respond in turn.

The film already has a cast assembled with Nanako Matsushinma as Demi Moore and South Korean Song Seung Hung as her dead lover, Patrick Swayze. But who will play Whoopi Goldberg?

Expect this to spark a trend of Japanese remakes. AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER is next on the docket for Fox, and I expect other classic American titles would follow after that. I suppose we do kind of owe them after decades of stealing all their shit.

How about a remake of "Gung Ho"?

An American auto maker company takes over a Japanese plant to make gas guzzling SUVs .

Good for them!

We deserve it lol. Too bad they will prolly make a GOOD remake, something we still cant do.

Also I would love an asian take on some of these video game movies. Like a japanese Resident Evil or Street Fighter movie.

I'd be very interested in a Japanese remake of Lost in Translation with two Japanese people stuck in an American land.

Maybe they make Patrick Swayze's character into more "Japan-ify" ghost, like Pulse or The Ring, hehe. Extra tidbit, The Hangover remake in Japanese way might be fun.

As long as...

as they don't put a "those good go to heaven, those bad go to hell" crap and a boring "comic" sidekick like that girl from Sister act... Why not? The original is very far from being a masterpiece, sorry...
