Penn on Dozen remake

07.05.2007

Dirty Dozen Good news, everybody! There's another remake coming! You were probably a little scared that remakes were on the decline in Hollywood considering we haven't reported on one in about three days but that couldn't be further from the truth. Fasten your strap-ons, boys and girls, because a DIRTY DOZEN remake is on the way! That's not exactly the big news, however, since a DIRTY DOZEN remake was announced a while back. The news is that its chirographic fate is now in the hands of go-to comic book adapter Zak Penn. That's right, the X-MEN: THE LAST STAND and FANTASTIC FOUR scribe has been contracted by Warner Bros. and uber-producer Joel Silver to rewrite the remake of the classic 1967 war dramedy. The moral of the story? The next time you find yourself doubting whether a stalled remake won't make it to the screen, have faith, there's always someone willing to throw a whole mountain of cash at someone else to make it happen.

oh well...

On principle, I don't mind remakes... provided they're done with respect and class, much like OCEAN'S 11. However, hiring Zak Fucking Penn to rewrite D12 is probably the WORST choice they could make. What, was Joe Esztherhaus unavailable from the catalog of uber-hacks?

My theory -- however many Oscars an original movie won is how many Razzies the remake will be nonminated for.

Be interesting to see if that pans out, I think.

Why ask why?

And why bother bitching about it? For all of the griping, you know damn well why it's being done. Because all the movie geeks of the world are still going to shell out the cash for it so that they have something to complain about, spending hours deconstructing what was right and what was wrong and whoa is me!

And, of course, leaving repetitive comments with that one word of indignation.

That's why, gentlemen. That's why.

Ten bucks says it's starring the Ocean's 11/12/13 cast. That'd actually be kinda brilliant, having the same group of guys remake another old-school favorite (but with 300% more prosrhetic noses!)
