50DMC Day 46 – A movie you would like to remake

12 Jul

More info on The 50 Day Movie Challenge here and here.

Well, I don’t want to remake anything. I have little aspirations of a career in the movie-making business. Couldn’t this be “a movie you would like to see remade” instead? But fine. I’ll play by the rules. Remakes, of course, are often unnecessary and pointless cash-grabs, so there’s not a whole lot of films that I’d want remakes of anyway.

There is one thing I’ve always wanted to see though, so I’d remake Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Yes, Kubrick’s film is brilliant. Yes, I know Stephen King already supervised a readaptation of the book. That is irrelevant. I’d do a completely pointless shot-by-shot remake, casting whoever as Wendy and Danny. All I want is to see the role of Jack Torrance being tackled by Nicolas Cage. Sure, Jack Nicholson was great for the part, but nobody does crazy quite like Mr. Cage does. Seeing him lose his mind and go after his wife and son with an axe would be a delight.
