So looking at 2017 movies in production for 2017 looks like it is most definitely going to be the year of the remakes. Come on, can’t they bring some original ideas to the table? Is the movie industries that stuck for ideas that they need to remake a list of movies the size of my leg? I decided I had to make a list of 5 remakes being done and there is a lot more in the works too. I’ve already done horror and Disney so I will leave the links at the bottom of the page.
The splash remake will star Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell. The movie is said to be doing a gender reversal of the original film. Tatum will play the role of the enchanting mermaid or merman I guess. His co-star Jillian Bell will take Tom Hanks roll of the human with the larger than life decision. You must admit it sounds interesting and if nothing else it will have a gorgeous, topless Channing Tatum for the girls to swoon over lol.
Drop Dead Fred (1991)
WTF. I don’t know how they could even think of remaking this amazingly funny classic. no one but the late Rick Mayall could ever do Drop Dead Fred’s part justice. The main star for this classic movie will be rustle brand playing the fun childhood imaginary friend… oh hell no. This is a movie I wont be watching.
I don’t know much about this one but it is definitely set for a remake in 2017. I cant wait to see what they do with this one to be honest. im hoping they do a great job and not make it a huge flop.
Honey I shrunk the kids (1989)
Yet another classic I don’t think should be touched. this movie was just perfect the way it was in my opinion. Mike Myers to play Wayne Szalinski, but I don’t think we should be holding our breath on that.
Mary Poppins (more of a sequel than a reboot)
Yeah so I had to add this one even though it’s apparently more of a sequel. its more than 20 years later why would they want to do this to a fantastic classic. . It is said to take its storylines from PL Travers’s children books focusing on Poppins’s continued adventures with the Banks family.
There are many more remakes but it was these that caught my eye the most.
what do you guys think about these being redone? Also check out the links for more upcoming remakes.
