Ok, fine. I can’t help myself. Here’s another bit of news that really annoyed me today… There is talk of another Predator film. Here’s the quote that really torqued me:
“…not a remake, not a prequel; more of a restart”
Why does this bother me? Because:
“There’s talk … that it might fix on Dutch’s (Ahnuld’s) grown-up commando kid.”
If it’s a “restart” why are they planning on using a character that is the son of the main character from the original film?
Wouldn’t a restart imply a completely different set of people and circumstances not related to the original?
What’s the deal here? Does Hollywood think that if they start calling remakes “restarts” or “re-imaginings” we’ll be more accepting of them?
