Hollywood is continuing with its loooooong ass tradition of shitting up remakes and reboots that NOBODY asked for. A remake of Fantasy Island is in the works. Casting for the Baywatch movie is almost done. And here’s pictures from the L.A. set of the CHiPs movie. This is the HELL that the success of the 21 Jump Street movie hath wrought! Now every studio thinks that if they remake some old show and throw a couple of dude bros in it, they’ll have to learn how to scuba or else they’ll drown in all the money that will fall on them. I don’t know if that’s going to happen with this mess….
Dax Shepherd is playing Jon Baker and he’s directing it. Michael Pena is Ponch and Kristen Bell, Adam Brody, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jane Kaczmarek are also in it. I’d be all about it if Alexander Skarsgard played Jon Baker and Adam Rodriguez played Ponch, and instead of being highway patrol officers, they were security guards at a gay nudist colony.
I can already see the reviews for this and they look a lot like what’s on Dax’s shirt. With that being said, it’ll probably make ten times more money than the Jem abomination and that hurts me all over again.
