I wanted to write the remake.
I have a bunch of composition books where I write my ideas down for story and movie ideas. I also write anecdotes, great one-liners, possible dialogue, and whatnot. On one of the pages in one of my books, I have a list of old movies that I'd like to rewrite. I've been adding to this list for years.
At the very top of this list, that is, my first entry, is The Day the Earth Stood Still.
Guess I can cross that one off.
Keanu Reeves, Will Smith's son, and a few others I can't remember at the moment are in it.
