This summer we are going to get smarter with a 'Get Smart' feature. 'Knight Rider' made it's way back to television this year, as did 'The Bionic Woman'. Apparently the 'A Team' is being helmed by John Singleton (?) and Keanu Reeves is going to star in a remake of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'. Not to mention the impossible task of remaking Hitchcock's 'The Birds' (because the remake of Psycho was so good).
It seems that the pool is starting to run dry. Maybe we can help here and suggest a few other forgotten gems to make sure that none of those crappy original ideas get to the big screen.
I'll start. How about 'Magnum P.I.'? But now Magnum can be an Iraq war vet... Robin Masters is now Dan Brown... TC is Muslim and Rick is gay. Higgins? Former SAS Colonel in the Falkland Islands (or Diana's chauffeur, I can't decide). Repackaged and ready to go...
(Please don't get me wrong here - I actually like the original series).
