Has our insatiable appetite for stereoscopic film imagery driven us past the point of no return? Would Hollywood be brazen enough to dig up the corpse of a classic in order to drop a 3-D deuce in its mouth? I’d like to think there’s a certain line that does not get crossed but this item has me worried.
A source at Universal has told Cinema Blend that a 3-D remake of Jaws may be in the works. From Cinema Blend:
Their claim is that people now expect more, visually, from their movie
The tipster also revealed that at one point Tracy Morgan was being considered for the role of Matt Hooper, originally played by Richard Dreyfuss. Willikers. This is too absurd to be true. It’s like a movie poster 30 Rock‘s Tracy Jordan would hang in his dressing room. I don’t know what to fear more with Tracy Morgan in the water, the shark or somebody getting pregnant.
Regard this as a rumor for now. Universal will come to their senses. The last thing Jaws needs is a remake, especially one that heads in a comedic direction. That’s why we have One Crazy Summer. (Cinema Blend)
