Another day, another remake. Or in this case, remakes. The Hollywood Reporter sayeth that MGM announced at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend that it will refashion two very 80s 80s movies. The first title that catches your eye is RoboCop, which has been in a perpetual Pong contest between getting remade and standing still for about two years.The second movie MGM will dig up is Red Dawn, the John Milius agitprop flick about fighting the Commies on American soil. It's also one of the rare breed of movies that's memorable simply for being forgettable. Red Dawn is also the second iconic Patrick Swayze moment to hit the headlines this week; the first was Point Break II. That puts him one ahead of Peter Weller, so please keep your fingers crossed for a Buckaroo Banzai reboot.
The Happening will either save Shyamalan's teetering career or put another nail in his coffin beginning Friday, June 13th.
