Films to be Released 2004
TELEVISION, CARTOON, OR COMIC BOOK INSPIRATIONS
Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar.
My Three Sons.
The Outer Limits.
Six Million Dollar Man.
Starsky and Hutch.
Where's Waldo. Why do I suspect there are going to be a lot of long shots in this film?
Alexander the Great.
Carolina. Katherine Fugate's baby looks like it might finally get out of the gate. Now the question is, what ever happened to Renee O'Connor's Rubbernecking!
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
King Arthur. It's a Bruckheimer production so expect castles to blow up!
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Not a remake, but a live action martial arts flick! Woo-wee! Bet White kicks the Evil Castle Lady's hinder!
Barbarella. Drew Barrymore's pet project is still on the books. Will it really get made?
Death Race 3000. Death Race 2000 apparently has enough in it to warrant a remake, in order to express the eternal truths of the first film in a new modern light for this current generation? Or maybe someone has been smokin' something that should not be smoken. I dunno. But of all the films that could be remade, why this one???? At times like these I wish the Oracle at Delphi was still around. She could help explain a lot of stuff, you know?
Fahrenheit 451. Mel Gibson's pet project apparently is still on the boards. Who will play the Julie Christie part?
Forbidden Planet. So many of these remakes are going after films that were special to their times for a reason. Just because a film was special to a time does not mean it should be attempted to recreate the specialness for another generation. Sometimes ideas and things that meld together do not work when re-constituted. I fear that this is such a film. It was magic to its time and place, but remaking it will point out its weaknesses more than its strengths. And if they change the weaknesses, then why not just make a new work of art for us to ponder?
The Lady Killers.
The Lone Ranger.
The Manchurian Candidate.
Quatermain and the Pit.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
A Star is Born. What is this? The 300th remake -- oh excuse me, "revisioning".
The Stepford Wives.
A Summer Place.
War of the Worlds.
The Amazing Spider-Man.
Bond 21. Doesn't have a name, doesn't need a name. Bond 21 says it all.
Bridget Jones II.
Chroncles of Riddick. Either a prequel or a sequel to the fascinating Pitch Black. But Vin Diesel has a rather full plate. Will he get to it? Stay tuned.
Die Hard IV. A film series that refuses to die...hard. Hee hee.
George of the Jungle II. I do not understand why Brenden Frasier would be doing this, and if he's not attached, I have no idea why anyone would want to do another one.
Gladiator II. Yeah, the Russell Crowe character is deaded than dead, but hey, let's make a sequel anyways. Maybe about that fellow gladiator he bumped into as he went out into the arena...
Godzilla II. I thought it was clear that Caucasions should never be allowed to make any significant decisions on a Godzilla movie.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Ice Age II.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet.
Independent Day II.
Indiana Jones IV.
Jurassic Park IV.
King Conan: Crown of Iron.
Mad Max: Fury Road.
The Mask II: Son of the Mask.
Mission Impossible III.
Scooby Doo II & III.
Alien vs. Predator. This high concept just refuses to die. Good luck on 'em!
