Raimi Readies "Dead" Remake

I guess we'll see whether they ruin it or not. They're great films because they're so bad and they know it.

Except they already remade Evil Dead (it's called Evil Dead 2). If they go with anybody but Bruce Campbell as Ash (which they pretty much have to, don't they?) I'll be pissed.

Unless Bruce doesn't want to be Sam's crash test dummy again, he could just take the producer credit if that's the case.

One would assume if somebody new plays Ash, they have Bruce's approval, since he owns the character.

You dirty Hollywood bastards! Leave classic movies alone! Evil Dead is a great, Great, GREAT movie. It is completely impossible to make a version that would be greater.

Is Hollywood out of ideas? No one can come up with original plot and story ideas anymore?

I have a bad feeling this isn't going to end until we have bad remakes of Carpenter's Halloween and The Thing.

Oh, it makes me mad.

They're already remaking The Thing. Sorta.

The Thing miniseries (us.imdb.com) will be on Sci-Fi next year.

Not to nitpick, but wasn't The Thing already a remake of The Thing From Another World? Oh, and an adaptation of Who Goes There, a story from John Campbell, Jr., I believe.

As for Halloween, it's been done so many times, I don't think we need to worry about it being remade. Hell, you could say that all the sequels diluted the movie in the first place (but that's not to say that I don't watch and love them).

Evil Dead 2 is a sequel, they didn't have the rights for the footage from the first film, or something so it seems really wierd in the opening. at the end of the first one we see the evil get ash at the end. in the 2nd one, we see ash's hand possessed by the evil. and we of course see ash go through time at the end. point being, the second one isn't a remake but is often confused as a remake.

"You dirty Hollywood bastards! Leave classic movies alone! Evil Dead is a great, Great, GREAT movie. It is completely impossible to make a version that would be greater."

Dude, it's Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert pitching this remake. Hollywood's got nothing to do with it-if the guys who made it in the first place want to give it a shot, I'm willing to let 'em.

"Not to nitpick, but wasn't The Thing already a remake of The Thing From Another World? Oh, and an adaptation of Who Goes There, a story from John Campbell, Jr., I believe...As for Halloween, it's been done so many times, I don't think we need to worry about it being remade."

Wrong! Carpenter stated a while back that he'd been approached about a possible remake of Hallowe'en. I guess if they do it right it could work (and that includes Phillip Seymour Hoffman taking the Loomis role), but I am NOT happy with the upcoming remake of The Fog.
