Movie Meltdown - Episode 393
This week we bust out a new game or maybe more of just a mechanism designed to trigger amazing ideas. Join us as we discuss properties that should be remade... or maybe shouldn't? As we try to decide what's the best new direction we could take the story... and the worst? And what's the most interesting new casting for classic roles... and what's potentially the most ridiculous casting choices ever?
And while we set up our apple boxes and perspective shots, we also mention... Murder on the Orient Express, Aidan Gillen, a tracheostomy in the middle of the buffet, Brian De Palma, must love kung fu, Roger Moore... not dead, artisanal, small batch, what's a fax machine, we have... a Canon Films Studio... in this kitchen, Ocean's Eight, those must have been good because you saw it thousands of times, Grimm, Shelley Duvall, knock on his dead wood, Timothy Dalton vs. Pierce Brosnan, red Swingline, shoes on a submarine sandwich, we've written so many better movies then what comes out, there's nothing to lose... or gain in remaking this, Face-off on Waterworld... with werewolves, Lea Michele, it's movie magic, it is... its movie madness, a crazy Clint Eastwood movie, Chris Pratt is like the new everyman, any war-torn region, turtles with dreadlocks, the Harry Dean Stanton Cthulhu movie, he doesn't need a face appliance and... but should it be done?!
"All right... so we made that work...green light. Make it happen Hollywood."
