I’ve always had this dream of running into the HR department of my nine to five gig, shouting “I Quit!” and then breaking out into the Sister Act 2 version of Oh Happy Day as security escorts me out of the building. Both of the Sister Act movies were my favorites growing up and, since Hollywood loves to murder our childhoods with reboots, you can now add an updated version of Sister Act to the list of things to make your eyes roll. But wait! This time around things will be a bit different.
When Hollywood decides to reboot, remake, or revive an established money maker, they usually go back in time and pick something that was popular in the 80s or 90s. Disney, however, must be snorting the kind of pixie dust that gives them short term memory loss. Because just one year after the release of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie Dead Men Tell No Tales, Deadline is reporting that Disney is already in talks to reboot the franchise.
Tyra Banks Is Bringing Even More Tacky Fashion Doll Realness In The First Promo Shots For “Life-Size 2”
Do I even need to specifically state it, when clearly that party dress and shih tzu hair are already doing it for me? Tyra Banks looks like the prototype for every fashion doll that has ever been made. Entertainment Weekly has given us the first look at Tyra in Life-Size 2, and it’s mostly about the fashion.
Reboot/revival/whatever fever is alive and well, and yesterday Murphy Brown stepped up to plate. Candice Bergen can honestly do no wrong in my book, but after a day of everyone watching the Supreme Court hearing of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and a screaming Brett Kavanaugh, people may have needed a break from political shit. The Murphy Brown reboot didn’t get the best of ratings considering it’s on CBS and those shows still hit 1997-style ratings since it’s the nursing home network of choice, but they did at least get Hillary “Hilary” Clinton in a cameo where she tried to get a job as Murphy’s secretary.
Because you can’t throw a broken People’s Choice award in Hollywood without hitting someone working on a reboot or a revival of a successful TV show from the ’80s or ’90s, it was only a matter of time before someone would throw Cheers into the pile of possibilities. But one person you won’t see rushing back to the place where everybody knows your name (everybody but the always forgetful Woody Boyd) is Mr. Cheers himself Ted Danson.
Jordan Peele has been on a serious roll since his directorial debut Get Out took off like Jesse Owens at the starting block. Not too long ago he announced his next feature film will be another sociopolitical horror film called Us starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and, most horrifying of all, active Scientologist Elisabeth Moss. It was also announced that his production company Monkeypaw would be producing a reboot of the mind-fucking classic The Twilight Zone. Now Jordan’s just announced that he’s also going to be stepping into Rod Serling’s loafers and hosting it as well!
