Well, with the obsession that Hollywood has with reboots and remakes, it actually shouldn’t be any surprise that this was coming.
According to Cinema Blend Universal is planning on rebooting the Jaws series, and of course its in 3-D.
Thanks to Cinema Blend:
“A source of ours over at Universal Pictures says the studio is strongly considering a remake of the summer blockbuster in hopes of dazzling younger audiences with new special effects. Their claim is that people now expect more, visually, from their movie going experience. So, Hollywood studios are inclined to take some of their tried and true franchise names like Jaws and bring them into the 3D world.”
“Our insider says Tracy Morgan was at one point being considered for the part of Matt Hooper, previously played by Richard Dreyfuss. While it’s uncertain whether that’s still the plan, it does indicate that they seem to be taking a more comedic direction with the part.”
This is a horrible idea. No, its not the thought of a reboot(although it does suck) or the 3-D(rolls eyes). Its the though of Tracy Morgan in the role of Hooper. I’m sorry, but Tracy Morgan is a hack. He’s not funny and the scenes I saw from “Cop Out” pretty much prove that.
I would actually hate the idea of them wanting to make it more of a comedic film. Sure, the film had some comedy in it, but it wasn’t a comedy film.
What do you think about a Jaws reboot?
