Romancing The Stone Again

| Filed under: Film Flickers

stoned-remake.jpg

1984's Romancing the Stone will be returning to the big screen in a remake, of course.

Instead of just letting films sit happily in people's homes as classics, Hollywood likes to pry them open, gut them, and then tack them up in theaters, banking on built-in audiences to fill seats.

The film is a romantic, action-packed adventure through the Colombian jungles as a mousy romance novelist finds herself romping with a hunky solider dude on a hunt for treasure.

The film was written by the late Diane Thomas, who wrote the screenplay while working as a waitress in Malibu, and then died in a car accident a year after the film's release.

Romancing turned out to be a career springboard for director Robert Zemeckis, and actors Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas, and Danny DeVito.

Eagle Eye writer Daniel McDermott will be penning the new script for Fox.

No other players are yet attached to the project.

    Romancing the Stone is in my Top 10 list of most watched movies from my childhood. The remaking of this movie is just retarded.

    So if the original screen play writer died after the original- is that why the sequel sucked?

    They should bring back the original cast–the film would be an instant cult classic.

    Ugh, it'll never be as good as the original.

    Perez - SHAME ON YOU. Do your homework. This was NOT a springboard for any of those actors. They were big before they made this movie. How old are you? You should know this.

    I BELIEVE THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH GOOD WRITERS IN HOLLYWOOD ANYMORE. EVERY YEAR THERE IS A REMAKE AFTER REMAKE AND MOSTLY THEY SUCK. WHY SCREW WITH A CLASSIC~!



  26. 26

    This was such a wonderfully romantic, adventurous flick that I actually look forward to a remake depending on the casting.

    Re: SBFREAKSgirl925Re: Lawzy Lawzy Miss Scarlett – Yeah, harry goes balls deep in that thick ass!



  28. 28

    Why does Hollywood need writers if they just recycle scripts? The Japanese have better writers.



  29. 29

    Is this really necessary???



  30. 30

    why o why do they have to fuck up all great films by remaking them?!



  31. 31

    I'm seriously pissed about this.



  32. 32

    If I hear the word "remake" one more time I'm gonna puke



  33. 33

    I was named after the boat in this movie. Ten points for someone to remember the name of the boat.



  34. 34

    leave it alone! come up with something original!



  35. 35

    Hollywood sucks arse. What the fuck is with their continued raping of my childhood memories? Hey fuckwits – try coming up with an original idea instead of remaking every 80s classic you can lay your filthy, uninspired, derivative hands on.



  36. 36

    WHY OH WHY? This is totally pointless! The original film was ORIGINAL and a brilliant movie with a brilliant cast, I just can't stand it when Hollywood don't have any original ideas so they have to waste so much money on remaking movies that were great first time around anyway!



  37. 37

    Why do they do this? Oh yeah, it's cause they can't come up with their own crap so they have to steal what's already been perfected and screw it up! URGH



  38. 38

    OH for fucks sake! hollywoods young writers are sorry ass shit faces with no ideas!!! leave OUR shit alone

    I wouldn't make this film if I were them. Human rights watch at the UN is looking into a possible secret genocide of several thousands of colombian peoples in the rural areas.
