I’d love to see that Evil Dead musical too and sit in the splatter zone.
I bet you would.
Please let the rest of us know how it was...
I hope it’s even half as sympathetic as his Lincoln film. Grant could use some positive publicity. I read Chernow’s lengthy biography a couple years back. Perhaps Spielberg will draw heavily on that.
Grant had the almost impossible task of handling reconstruction, in addition to winning the war (which Lincoln merely supervised, arguably poorly). Lincoln had it relatively easy, IMO. Yet he is considered great.
Chernow was the source on this. We'll see.
The new teaser trailer hit today, shown during the Oscar telecast (which I suspect very few people saw). The trailer looks absolutely stunning -- I'll see this film just for the visuals alone. We got a long wait: not out until December.
My last latin romance was a fiasco, I'll skip it. Tony isn't the only one who's felt the knife go in.
Saw the trailer on the Oscars. Wow!!!! I can’t wait.
It does look amazing. Whatever is boring about the idea of a remake is counteracted by what's exciting about a master director tackling a genre he's never done before.
I still want to see this done as a Bollywood film, with the couple being Indian and Pakistani.
Today, it would be even more dramatic with a mixed couple. Forget about the Capulet's and Montague's, we need a couple from both a blue and red political family
Saw the teaser on Twitter this morning then again on YouTube. The cinematography looks incredible. Can’t wait to see it considering I’ve had to wait an extra year thanks to the pandemic and thankfully it’ll probably be in a cinema rather than on some streaming service.
There's nothing controversial about interracial dating now, so they wisely kept it as a period piece.
I'm just happy that there will be two musicals this year, this and Lin-Manuel Miranda's In The Heights.
Bring on the belly buttons.
I can wait forever to see this...
If they keep the original score, should be no problem. Not sure about the new arrangements... contemporary singing voices. When there’s more teaser trailers that is.
Jury out on this ... yet.
Not throwing away my original version DVD( no syncing probs..) yet.
As long as the music doesn’t get da funky treatment.
Don't get the need for this (IMHO).
The movies that need to be remade are those that had good ideas, but were botched in their execution. There's no need to remake those that were knocked out of the park the first time.
The rival gangs should act like troupes from different directors. On one side the violent and improbably eloquent, motor-mouthed Coen Brothers gang, and on the other side the stammering, awkward denizens of a Wes Anderson piece who appear to be myopically reading their cue cards without benefit of glasses.
Bring it on!! — but only if someone really good (and I mean REALLY good), somehow managed to synthesize Bernstein’s tunes with Indian and Pakistani style singing, instrumentation, and arrangements.
And I’m not kidding either.
Sure, in the wrong hands it’s a recipe for disaster — but in the right hands, and if sympathetically done, a so reimagined Bollywood Indian/Pakistani version of WSS could really be an amazing and intercontinental hit.
Separate names with a comma.
