Another Hollywood Remake: Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone is one of my favorite movies.  I love that movie, it has adventure, action, romance and crocodiles all in one movie.  I owned it on VHS and I think I wore the poor tape out.  The movie was originally released in 1984 starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito.  It also spawned several movies with this trio.  Now rumors are floating around that Hollywood is wanting to remake this movie.  UGH!

I am not a fan of Hollywood remakes, especially movies that were great on their own.

According to

Well, a “Romancing the Stone” remake has been an idea kicking around Hollywood for a while now and the last we heard about it, Robert Luketic, the man behind a string of abominations including “Monster-in-Law,” “The Ugly Truth” and “Killers,” was going to sit in the director’s chair. That was nearly two years ago, and it seems Fox are now looking for some fresh blood and probably someone whose best film isn’t “Legally Blonde.”

Names being thrown around include, Katherine Heigl, in the Kathleen Turner role (at least they are keeping it in the Kath), Gerard Butler or Taylor Kitsch, in the Michael Douglas role.

Heigl and Butler had great chemistry in The Ugly Truth.  Kitsch is great to look at, and is best know for his roll at Tim Riggins in the TV Show Friday Night Lights, he will also star in the upcoming movies John Carter and Battleship.

Maybe it comes with age, and the fact you don’t want your younger year memories messed with, but c’mon Hollywood come up with new ideas and stop ripping off my favorite memories.
