Sure, I can understand the fans getting upset when Hollywood remakes a film someone loves, and probably ruin it(coughGodzillacough). But, remakes don’t ruin the original in any way. Yes, the newer generation will probably see the remake instead of the original, but how do you know that it won’t inspire them to watch the original?
Well, anyway like it or not the film is getting remade. And, on October 1, 2010 it will hit theatres.
Thanks to ComingSoon:
“Overture Films has announced an October 1st release date for Cloverfield director Matt Reeves’ Let Me In, starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, Cara Buono and Sasha Barrese. The film is based on the Swedish novel “Lat den Ratte Komma In” (“Let the Right One In”) by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the movie of the same name. The following is the synopsis released by the studio”
I haven’t seen the original film, and to be quite honest with you I don’t even care for it at all. So, a remake is perfectly fine with me.
And, the film is in good hands, anyway. Matt Reeves’ only film was “Cloverfield”, but that is probably one of the most under-rated films of the last decade. Since this is a horror film, then that was something Reeves showed he could also do with “Cloverfield”, scare you(well, at least it scared me).
However, I am sick to death of Hollywood having to remake nearly every single foreign that’s popular. I mean, you don’t see the Japanese, Korean, etc. remaking Star Wars or anything like that do you?
Are at all looking forward to this film? Or should Hollywood have kept their hands off of it?
