The Next Big Hollywood Remake

Hollywood loves to recycle. Paper, plastic, vegetable trimmings, TV, movies, whatever. If it's lying around taking up space, Hollywood will recycle it.

What will be the next big movie remake?

I'm thinking ...

Tango & Cash, starring Vin Diesel and Ashton Kutcher.

Columbo, starring Harrison Ford

Remington Steele, with Jude Law and Kate Bosworth

Beverly Hills Cop, starring Tracy Morgan

The sky's the limit.

Next?

Nah... He's not genial enough. I could see Jeff Bridges doing it though

Also, resurrect Dirty Harry with Josh Brolin

Jeff Bridges? Maybe. Yeah, ok. But he'd have to shave that beard he's become so fond of lately. w

Dirty Harry? I don't know. I'm just glad no one suggested Matt Damon.

Go back a little further now. Who would you cast in something like Duck Soup, or It's a Wonderful Life?

Nobody can touch the Marx Brothers,

Tom Hanks is this generation's Jimmy Stewart, but this generation has no interest in remaking It's a Wonderful Life, unless it's a tv movie, in which case, someone like Matthew Broderick

I just don't understand how Shia Laboeuf has credibility as an action star. I'd be more inclined to see someone like Ryan Reynolds reboot Die Hard

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century!

Jeff Bridges as Columbo with the right script would actually be pretty awesome.

This, not so much.

Personally, I think Harry is too tied to Eastwood to ever successfully remake the character. But if they did, Hugh Jackman. He kind of looks like he could be Eastwood's son.
