Toadofsky Posted March 1, 2009 Report Share Posted March 1, 2009 Okay, Hollywood, is officially out of ideas, at least that's what it seems to me. I originally saw this on FoxNews.com, but I'd would prefer to link this to another site with this news... http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/film/news/e3iaeb1c24de37000ac9d6ab15e86a4f615 According to the report, the original producer of the first film is attached to it, as well as others (don't know if they were involved), are wanting to explore the more nuanced details from the book that ultimately were overlooked from the original film. Honestly, I know 80's purists are going to/are pissed about this. But me honestly, I'm curious how they'll pull it off. They can at least introduce the film to a new generation, which is what this is going to do. I wouldn't mind seeing them do this, I was starting to wonder when they'd do it. Originally, the writer of the book (Michael Ende) actually tried to sue Wolfgang Peterson (director) of the original film for straying too far from the source (he didn't win). But maybe this remake will be able to follow the book a little closer. I've read the book, but I have to say, if they do a sequel, I really wouldn't want them to get into the bizarre stuff that goes on with Bastian when he's in the book's world (I'm not going to elaborate). All I ask is two things from this film, Klaus Doldinger's music during the flights be in there, and the song from Limahl be in it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
