Neverending Stories, Remakes, and Sam Jacksons


In a smorgasbord of movie news, we are going to get a lot more of the same to the tune of remakes of Clue, Total Recall, and the Neverending Story. All 3 of those are pretty solid films, and I fear that remakes will only taint our fond memories ala Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. and the uber lame reinvisioned Wonka. If they screw up Clue, I guess I don't really care that much, but the most tragic move has to be the attempt to remake Neverending Story. That was a childhood classic and a near perfect movie. Just let it be.

In other overdose news. Samuel Jackson has signed to reprise his post Iron Man credits role of Nick Fury NINE times. That includes appearances in Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, and S.H.I.E.L.D. Looks like he will be too busy to worry about any Mother F-ing Snakes on any Mother F-ing Planes.

That is, unless the S.H.I.E.L.D. movie stars H.Y.D.R.A.
