Will Hollywood Ever Get A Clue?

Why? - Mr. Humphries
They have already filmed a remake of Fame.

They are working on a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

They now want to do a remake of Clue.

Will the blasphemy never end?

Well, we ran out of originality about 15 years ago. Now Hollywood is going green! Reduce, Recycle and Reuse!!!

Probably not. People will go to see these films either out of curiosity, or to verify their outrage.

It sucks. The entertainment business has now forgotten what it was like before they discovered the "formula" for profitability. Before they weren't afraid to take the chances on new and adventurous material that pushed the envelope or challenged the boundaries that had been put in place by then. Now, everything needs to be a safe bet. It all needs to make money immediately. And I think that by remaking something, it pretty much guarantees that some of the original fan base will be intrigued enough to want to give up their cash to see it.
