Industry News!

Really? Really? I can't believe the news today.
Not know what I am talking about? UGH..let me just start with UGH.

In television: There is a new Melrose Place! Yes just like 90210, they have made a new Melrose Place. Are there really not enough ideas out there? Here's an idea, just get Netflix and rent the originals, or SOAP net usually runs them. Really? With so many great shows getting canceled left and right, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone, Pushing Daises, (plug plug for ABC inserted LOL)...Without A Trace is gone! But hey, not to worry, we are putting a new version of Melrose Place on the air. What's next, new Party Of Five? Maybe a new Wonder Years?

In film: Remake of Footloose!!!
It has been confirmed that 'Gossip Girl' actor Chace Crawford is set to star in the lead role of the remake of 'Footloose'. UGH...Dirty Dancing the musical and a new Footloose..
Okay then, new Ferris Bueller, and new Back To The Future are just around the corner.

Okay writers, start writing, because it seems that Hollywood has run out of ideas.

I'm just sayin'!


  1. Welcome to the Blogosphere!

    I thought "Ferris Bueller" was already in pre-production a few years ago, seriously.

    The problem with Hollywood, is that corporate people run the studios now and it shows in the movies that greenlit. At least when the studios had boutique "independents," there was a chance they might release a good film here and there.

    Now it's just remakes or they'd rather put out a videogame, or a half-baked romcom that doesn't have anything script-wise beyond the initial concept, than take a chance on an original idea.

  2. BTW, I haven't seen the new "90210" and I don't intend to see the new "Melrose," beyond them being spoofed on "The Soup." All of the UPN/WB/CW night soap operas were just watered-down versions of the Spelling originals, so why would I believe that they could justice to the originals?

  3. i'm not a fan of remakes... nor pretend sequels. too many of both abound. if it ain't broke...etc.
