Film News

Memento Remake???

The Hollywood Reporter and Digital Spy report that the Christopher Nolan film Memento (2000) is to be remade/rebooted. AMBI Pictures are the ones rebooting it with Andrea Iervolino of AMBI reportedly saying

“People who’ve seen Memento 10 times still feel they need to see it one more time,” she continued

“This is a quality that we feel really supports and justifies a remake. The bar is set high thanks to the brilliance of Christopher Nolan, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Just to clarify Christopher Nolan is not believed to have any connection to the remake. Well I can’t wait for the reboot, oh no wait actually I can!

Donald Sutherland Unhappy at Remake?

In a interview with Metro, Donald Sutherland expressed his angry at the planned remake of horror classic Don’t Look Now ( 1973) by saying

“Don’t embarrass yourselves by participating in it. It’s bulls**t. It was a piece of work indelibly written by Nicholas Roeg.

“Why would they do it? It’s just people trying to profit off the back of something that’s very beautiful. It’s shameful. They should be ashamed of themselves.”

So another week in the movie world and we are still talking about yet more remakes/reboots, lets wait and see what’s going to be announced this time next week!
