Why??? March 1, 2009

So, once again my childhood is swirling back around to my present.  There’s word that Universal has tapped Gore Verbinski…..he of Pirates of the Caribbean fame (yes, even the crappy third one)…..to direct another live action version of the board game Clue.  Why???  

This movie was already made in 1985, and while it didn’t shatter box office earnings, it was fabulous!  How can you go wrong with Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Michael McKean, Christopher Lloyd, Eileen Brennan, Leslie Ann Warren, and Martin Mull??  It was hilarious!  There was a witty script, a talented cast, and a really interesting marketing twist where the movie had three different endings.  One shown on the east coast, one on the west coast, and the third everywhere else.  Just brilliant!   Check out this scene!

This seems a waste of Universal’s money.  Are there no more original scripts out there???
