Thank heavens! Just think what CGI will do for this movie!

Maybe they can start remaking some of the more classic 80's movies. They can get new bands to cover classic 80's songs for the soundtrack to make the film even more contemporary.

Somebody shoot me... [Frown]

Worst case: Zac Efron plays some down-and-out kid whose life is in the toilet, then he happens to save the life of an elderly store owner (Susan Boyle in her fist role) and gets a job in the store. When there, he meets the camp shop window designer (Shaquille O'Neal), the store security chief (Vince Vaughan), and the doll that comes to life (Lindsay Lohan).

They sing a bit and it ends up, like, all happy, man......

Paul..please stop giving Hollywood ideas! Great stuff..but I'm afraid that your synopsis is 'Best' case..you probably can't even think up something horrible enough to match their 'Worst' case..

Valley, best case is that they stay the hell away from the idea....... Anything that they actually do will move us towards worst case!

I'm waiting to see what role they give Ben Stiller..... you could have a "night At The Museum" spin-off where ALL the mannequins come to life..... Must stop thinking now...... garbage being created...... [Smile]

Now that John Hughes is no longer with us...how long to do think it will take until 16 Candles, Pretty In Pink, SKOW, and Home Alone get remakes?

I kind of hoped for the oft-discussed '32 Candles' to be made (a few years ago - too late now). Now Hughes is gone we'll never even get a commentary! The only commentary we have is his Laserdisc commentary that was put on the original 'Ferris Bueller' DVD (now deleted).

On another note; there was a rumour about six months ago that they were going to remake 'Back to the Future' with Zac Efron (calm down Angel!) I think that might be a no-go now, but it was a legitimate 'spec' project.

They have to be careful about what movies they touch, some are sacrosanct. Although... that didn't stop them with the new 'Karate Kid' movie.

In order for these remakes to be done, do the original writers have to sell their interest in the story to the new producers in order for them to be made? I'm just wondering, because I remember reading something recently where a guy had wanted to write a sequel to "The Breakfast Club" while Hughes was still alive, and Hughes made him stop production on it.

Hughes would have owned the copyrights to the characters and the title. He'd have had to sanction any work that traded on that copyright.

Now he's so sadly passed on, it's up to whoever now owns that (or they wait 50 years for it to expire...)

Studios own the rights to the original works, but the creator owns characters, etc. So a sequel needs to be sanctioned by both. Sometimes the studio owns everything, and sometimes (very rarely) the writer/director owns the rights to everything.

Hughes was like an inverted George Lucas: Where Lucas can't stop tinkering with his old projects as a means of making money; Hughes seemed to want nothing more to do with them.

Of course, then there's the four hour Breakfast Club rough cut...

To be honest, I don't think, for at least one thing, you could realistically do Home Alone again in today's world of high speed internet and instant messaging; there's just too many ways that they'd be able to get through to him and console him unless Chicago was blacked out for a whole week. Of course that doesn't mean they wouldn't try--anything for the fast buck, as we've often seen--but if they did, that would weigh them down instantly.

Be great if they released a Breakfast Club special edition with the rough cut on a second disc.

This is funny to me because I work with a guy that is like 55 and loves the original and to this day, like once a week he will just out of nowhere scream out "HOLLYWOOD!"

I smile every time. [Smile]
