I was getting ready for bed the other day when my boyfriend walks in and says "I have something I think you should know, but im kinda scared to tell you." Im thinking, oh great, cheating? Drained the bank account? "okaaaay . . . ." I say. He makes me sit down, takes a deep breath and says "some dude is going to remake the Wizard of Oz... AND Yellow Submarine" and backs away from me quickly.
After I stopped throwing things and cussing everyone from MGM to this Zemeckis character and the vein stopped pulsing in my forehead, I ran to the Internet to look it up. I was surprised (and relieved) to learn this was actually pretty old news and both projects were DEAD IN THE WATER (as they should be).
Can you imagine how different it would be if kids were flocking to see Philadelphia Story instead of Final Destination 107? If they had the choice to go see The Snake Pit instead of Miley Cyrus? Cool Hand Luke instead of Cowboys and Aliens?
