    Labyrinth (1986) - News

    Walt Disney has decided to produce Labyrinth, a pitch by Larry Brenner, which does have some of the same narrative elements as Jim Henson’s 1986 project, but not really. Actually, both projects are completely unrelated, they just happen to have some striking similarities.

    Brenner’s Labyrinth follows a princess who has to travel a dangerous maze in order to save her father. So instead of a cute baby brother, we get a grown man (who probably won’t be anything like the magnificent David Bowie by the way).

    Brenner’s Bethlehem landed on the 2011 Black List of unproduced screenplays, but that film is now being produced by Universal and Roth Films.

    Labyrinth will be produced by Jim Whitaker, whose Whitaker Entertainment executives Elizabeth Ingold and Adam Borba helped develop the pitch.

    Or you could just watch TV because that's where all the best creative chances are being taken.

    We're in a new golden age of TV and people are too busy complaining about bad movies to realize where the real magic is happening 7 nights a week.

    And that is exactly what I do. Even when Hollywood makes something actually watchable, the bar is a lot higher to get me to deal with $12 tickets and texting teenagers when I can watch quality stuff at home and wait for the films to hit HBO.

    Yeah, but I want both. Why do I have to choose between TV and movies? They are fewer and far betweener, but a few great movies manage to slip between the cracks. It's just a shame that hollywood goes for the low hanging fruit. Is a movie like Weird Science really worth a remake. I don't recall it being more than a minor hit with a twinkle of cult status. Does the name really have that much recognition for the demo they will try to rope in with a pg-13 rating. I just don't get it. Evil Dead makes sense. As close to revered as can be. But a minor prospect like Weird Science...all they can do is alienate the fans of the original. Even if they manage to make a movie that doesn't suck, I really don't think folks will flock to this. Just want more.

    Add to the idiocy of all of this they are also making a remake of Overboard, which is one of my wife and kids favorite all time comedies. Who could top Goldie Hawns performance in that movie? I will say it isn't my favorite comedy but it fits the discussion perfectly. Why would a studio head green light this?

    It's like they go to the local Wal Mart, close their eyes, roll up their sleeve, and dig into the $4.99 bin. What's next? Captain Ron? They do not at all take into account that if you bare bonesed most of these movies they would look like a sure loser. On paper...Weird Science minus Chet, RDJ, Anthony Michael Hall, the Berryman/Wez cameos, and just the overall weirdness and you have a really dumb idea for a movie. They never take into account the performances, fx or any of a hundred random elements that just cannot be manufactured. Perfect example...Total Recall. Was it horrible? No. Was it memorable? Not at all. Its hollow like a chocolate bunny and it would make people who didn't see the original wonder what all the damned fuss is about. They just see name brand recognition and 14 months later after tons and tons of 'Different take' press crappings you get a movie that disappoints original fans and gets a general MEH from everyone else. It's one thing if they really did try to do something valid...and it happens, seemingly by accident...but it's just so safe and predictable.

    Oof and Overboard. Man I soooooo MANCRUSH on Kurt, but oofa, that was one that got past me brother. Different strokes. I can't stand Goldie Hawn though. Except Wildcats, which is a fun little flick.

    First ‘Oldboy’ Teaser Poster, Plus Very Early Screening Reaction [Updated With High-Quality Poster] | /Film

    There are only minor changes, with stuff like the prison sequence being longer and some tweaks to the ending. It’s not shot for shot by any means either, so if you see it, you should definitely expect things to be different and to cringe all over again…Much like the original, acts two and three are very sadistic and “wrong.”
    About as good as you could expect...still, fool me once(and I am talking to you Evil Dead!)
