It's possible that she thought she would be doing Filthy Rich, a show that was cancelled
I doubt it, they barely managed to get her back for the movies. I think she's just done with the role.
I think Filthy Rich was already a dead show walking that was going to be burned off in the spring, but because of the pandemic they saved it until the fall.
I think she'd come back for a gruesome slasher pic where Samantha Jones brutally tortures and murders her best friends for being so ###ing boring.
If they are brining back Sex in the City they might as well bring back Entourage. Those two shows were always two sides of the same coin of storytelling. Fantasy based friend bonding while living it up with their glamorous lifestyles.
Jeremy Piven was Me Too-ed.
I don't even want an Ellen Reunion without Jeremy Piven.
Dracula as a futuristic sci-fi western? Um, okay, I guess https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/h...ci-fi-western-dracula-for-universal-exclusive
I guess you can't take the sky from Dracula.
Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman reboot:
Wasn't this "Priest", with Paul Bettany?
All monsters go to space. He might find Pinhead and Jason Voorhees up their. Jason
CBS ordered a pilot for a True Lies reboot -
Face/Off next to get a facelift. Good luck to them in trying to match the utter insanity of Cage and Travolta at their scene-chewing best, as directed by John Woo https://deadline.com/2021/02/face-o...e-next-godzilla-vs-kong-paramount-1234690371/
It's supposed to be a direct sequel. Not sure what they'd do to accomplish that. Grown up Adam? They could bring back Travolta. He'd be significantly cheaper than the $20 million he got the first time around.
Yes, I’ve since seen the director say it’s a sequel. That seems even sillier than a remake.
It would seem like they would require the exact same kind of plot to get the two actors to do impersonations of each other. It's not like anyone would willingly let the bad guy look like the good guy. If this were a no-name director, it would scream lower budget, sequel-in-name-only that repeats the first movie, like Kindergarten Cop 2 or Inside Man 2 or Hard Target 2.
I don't think it was already posted about here, but I just heard today that a reboot of The Wonder Years is going ahead. With a black cast, and Fred Savage is involved. I really don't know about this one. The large part of what made the show so special were the circumstances surrounding it, ie the era and the stories they were able to tell. Not only was it a period piece, they were able to leverage that to do a lot of social commentary and all of that contributed to a perfect storm of a show that is going to be very hard to replicate, chief among them being the tone.
I still find it a little funny that the original was only set 20 years before the series aired (season 1 aired in 1988 and was set in 1968), while this one will also be set in the late 1960s, as oppose to 2001. Of course, to me, a 16 year-old when the original first aired, 1968 seemed like 100 years earlier, whereas 2001 still feels like no time ago!
Western future Dracula? ...
Vampire hunter D anybody? .. Something that is SCREAMING to be made?
And that was perhaps to its advantage, as the 60's was still fairly fresh and you probably had a lot of the writers who had lived through the era that could attest to its accuracy. In the 80's, you also still had lots of 60's/70's music on the radio. Part of me fears that a lot of what made the original great will be lost in translation. The world is much more PC now, and I can't see some of the original stories being done today, and frankly they're probably the ones that need to be told the most. Given that this will also be a black family navigating the 60's, I certainly hope they won't hold back.
