Question of the day: WHY DOES THIS NEED TO HAPPEN? the Jumanji Remake
Hey Hollywod…STOP REMAKING MOVIES!! Have an original god damn idea. I am sure you are getting scripts and proposals for quality films so why are you just pushing out crap?
Of course me speaking directly to “Hollywood” as if it was one person is silly, but so is making a shit ton of remakes.
A Jumanji remake is extremely unnecessary.
Amazing Spider-Man Producer Joins Jumanji Remake
Sony is very much putting itself in the remake business, having scored a major success with this summer’s premature reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. They recently put major plans into development to remake Jumanji, the 1995 children’s adventure film boasting early CGI effects that don’t pass muster today. And now, to make that remake possible, they’ve brought in the guy who knows how to do it better than anyone: the producer of The Amazing Spider-Man.
We’re talking a lot about reboots around here this week, from 90s movies thatmust not be remade and the ones that might be better as remakes. Jumanji, much as I loved it when I was 11, seems like the latter, getting the benefit of modern technology along with a story that can be retold endlessly. Tolmach obviously knew how to make it happen with Spidey– seems likely he can get that lightning to strike twice.
