Everything Old Is New Again
« on: May 24, 2013, 11:13:09 AM »
You are a producer at a major studio with big bucks.

You notice the latest trend in Hollywood is to remake old movies.

As the producer, you must...

1. Pick a project.  Choose a movie pre-1980 to remake.
2. Pick a director you feel best suits this project.
3. Recast the male and female leads with current actors.

Example.

KING KONG

Directed by Peter Jackson

Starring Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody


Good luck with your movie.

I'd redo Dorian Gray.

I would write the script and direct it.

I would pick an actor who can be creepy and is in his 30s.

I don't know enough directors or actors to have any better suggestions.  :D

I've always wanted to do a rewrite of 'Forbidden Planet' so I'll go with that as the film.

To direct it.  Hmmm. I think I'll go with David Lynch.

Who shall star?  (Commander J. J. Adams) Liam Hemsworth, (Altaira 'Alta' Morbius) Emma Watson, (Dr. Edward Morbius) Ian McKellen

Very flattering that you should use me as your producer, rookies, but I think the point here is to use well-known actors and directors.  Plus the rules of the game say you are the producer - not to specify one.  You really should read the rules before you play a game.
