    Please "no" on that pairing. No remake is needed.

    I still cannot get my head around Seyfield ridiculously running around in "In Time" ... running out of time , wearing of all things - high heel shoes. :eek: What's more, it showed she as an actor , had not physically learned the correct posture to walk, let alone -run in them anyway.
    The depicted character then became , as a result - a silly scatter -brain bimbo.

    Why would anyone want to remake them? Not only did Powell and Loy own the characters, the movies themselves were very much a product of their times, and I can't see how they would translate to today's movie audiences (read schlubs).

    ... But seriously, I don't care if they remake these or not because I will never see them. The originals are perfect. Powell & Loy had a chemistry that can't be duplicated, and it was that chemistry that made the originals great.

    Why bother? No two current actors could pull it off.

    Two of those ladies are far too good looking to play the role and one is too young. Thanks for posting that, I enjoyed looking them up on imdv, beautiful girls. :thumbsup:

    For the many of you saying it shouldn't be remade, I understand where you're coming from. The originals were perfect.

    BUT...only lovers of old films will know that. There are now multiple generations who don't know them and who aren't going to watch films from the 1930s. As I said earlier in this thread, this is a good candidate for a remake. It would take a remake to get more people to see the originals.

    Incidentally, I took the original question as a hypothetical, but according to imdb, there is a version in development. Given the lack of information, it might simply mean that movie rights were bought.
