Paramount to remake Don’t Look Now

Odin’s raven…

In what can only be described as the most stupid remake announcement this week, Paramount Pictures have decided to inflict a remake of seminal thriller Don’t Look Now on the paying public. Probably best known for its sex scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, the original told the story of parents haunted by the death of their daughter moving to Venice, where they become convinced that they are being literally haunted by the spirit of the little girl.

French broadcaster Canal+’s production arm StudioCanal is to handle production. No word on direcctor or cast yet, but that really isn’t the point. At what stage will Hollywood just stop remaking well-known films? In all honesty, this is getting beyond a joke now! What’s left? Howsabout remaking Citizen Kane with Ben Stiller in the lead role? Or A Clockwork Orange with Jack Black as Alex? Nicholas Cage as Mark Renton? Just make it stop!

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
