Move over 1985 version!

A new movie based on the board game classic Clue is in the works.

And, Pirates of the Caribbean director, Gore Verbinski, has reportedly signed on to bring the crime caper to life again.

If Gore's signed on, maybe Johnny Depp will do it too!

We could see J in the Professor Plum role!

  8. 8

    Good luck trying to replace the great Madeline Kahn.

    Good luck trying to replace any of them.

    Again, this is one of those classic untouchable movies, yet here goes Hollywood. It's obvious they've run out of ideas.

    This is a classic comedy, leave it the hell alone.



  9. 9

    Yawn..



  10. 10

    i think it's going to be really hard to outdo the 1985 one. tim curry is amazing and the cast was so perfect. but i have faith in gore verbinski.



  11. 11

    NOOOOOOO, it's a freaking classic and does NOT need redone! It's perfect!!



  12. 12

    Remake of Clue!!!Why?



  13. 13

    Holy fukballs!! No!! What's next, Monopoly? Isn't anything sacred??



  14. 14

    You cannot remake a Tim Curry movie. It's illegal in 43 states.



  15. 15

    WITH THE MILLIONS OF GREAT BOOKS THAT COULD EASILY BE TURNED INTO POTENTIALLY GREAT FILMS..WHY DO THEY KEEP MAKING CRAPPY REMAKES OF MOVIES THAT WEREN'T BLOCKBUSTERS TO BEGIN WITH! THE MOVIE INDUSTRY IS MINDLESS AS WELL AS THE PEOPLE THAT GO AND SEE THESE CRAPPY REMAKES THEY KEEP CRANKING OUT. I'M LIVING IN A WORLD OF LEMMINGS!

    I love this movie. Don't fuck with a classic.

    GODAMNIT HOLLYWOOD! GET YOUR OWN ORIGINAL IDEAS!!!!



  19. 19

    YES! i don't know why i'm so excited for this movie



  20. 20

    ahh, there's no way they could recreate the greatness of the 1985 one.



  21. 21

    Oh wow! Cool, can't wait to see it!!



  22. 22

    WHAT!? NOTHING will beat the original!! It's a comedy classic! But Johnny Depp would be good as Professor Plum, and Megan Mullally as Mrs. White… I'd like to see Sacha Baren Cohen as Wadsworth and Alec Baldwin as Mr. Body! Anne Hathaway as Ms. Scarlet?



  23. 23

    This is legit my favourite movie.
    They better not mess it up.

    But if Johnny were to be in it, I'm sure it'd we amazing. As Johnny always is.



  24. 24

    OMFG but the old version is freakin amazing! no one could be a better wadsworth than tim curry!



  25. 25

    And Meryl Streep as Mrs. Peacock!



  26. 26

    awesome!



  27. 27

    aaannnnddd….. Phillip Seymore Hoffman as Col. Mustard and Matt Damon as Mr. Green



  28. 28

    One of my favourite movies of all time. Ms Kahn's peformance was flawless. 'Yes, I did it. I killed Yvette. I hated her SOOO much.' Lol. I still quote this movie to this day. x



  29. 29

    This is such bullshit. They will never top the '85 version! And I hear they want to make the new one more of an international thriller. WTF?!



  30. 30

    omg, I LOVE Clue (1985) version!!!
    .
    .
    .
    "Mrs. Peacock was a man?!" SLAP SLAP….

    "I'm not shouting, or like I am. I'm shouting, I'm shouting, I'm shou….SMACK!

    johnny would probably be wadsworth if he was cast :( definitely wouldnt do the part justice



  32. 32

    JESUS CHRIST, ENOUGH WITH THE FUCKING REMAKES!



  33. 33

    if they make it it better be amazing! clue is classic!



  34. 34

    eff that. NOTHING can beat the genius of Madeline Kahn and Tim Curry in the 85 version. This should not have even been a thought. Not even Johnny Depp could make me even like a fraction of a remake. How about Gore Verbinski and other directors and studio heads come up with NEW and ORIGINAL material and stop putting out horrible remakes of classic movies.



  35. 35

    Clue was the best!!! They better not screw this up!



  36. 36

    ahh, i love that movie- i hope they don't screw it up…



  37. 37

    professor plum my ass.



  38. 38

    fucking ppl. can't they leave anything alone! they already fucked up willy wonka :(



  39. 39

    Ha this shit brings back high school memories. When we had to determine how they were killed we would say shit like "I believe Mr.Plum Removed Colonel Mustards eyesocket with the candlestick,skullfucked him for twenty minutes,Slit his throat open with the edge of a revolver and thrust himself into the esophagas"



  40. 40

    Welll anyway WADSWORTH IS TIM CURRY FOR LIFE!!!! They cant fuck up wonderful classics like these? What the fuck are they going to do next Monoply? Oh please god no.



  41. 41

    Kewls, Love the game, LOVE the movie. I dont think they can top the original though…sorry



  42. 42

    Hooray for lack of originality and ruining perfect movies! They must have something against Tim Curry I swear. First they want to remake Rocky Horror (Which NOTHING beats Tim Curry in women's lingerie) and now Clue??! Fucking crap.



  43. 43

    No possible way this movie "remake" could be as funny as the original.
    I hope the bring back The Butler !Tim Curry!
    Please oh please don't fuck up this classic!



  44. 44

    And Cloris Leachman as Mrs. White… Sacha Baren Cohen as Mr. Body…and Parker Posey as Miss Scarlett.

    I DON'T THINK THEY SHOULD REMAKE THE CLASSIC, BUT IF THEY INSIST PLEASE ASSEMBLE A CLASSIC CAST!



  45. 45

    The 85 version is one of my favorites of all time. I'd love to see the remake. No Johnny Depp though please.



  46. 46

    OH…and Joan Rivers as Mrs. Peacock and Jim Carrey as Colonel Mustard.
    They'll also need a hit song from Britney on the soundtrack. Maybe the Geniuses behind the last two Titles of her albums can come up with something. It doesn't get any better than "BLACKOUT" and 'CIRCUS."



  47. 47

    UGH…effin Hollywood…must recycle, no more original ideas…next i suppose will be Weird Science or Young Frankenstein? There is a reason these movies are "classic"…you can't remake that, despite how much your dwindling bank accounts beg you to.



  48. 48

    Love the original! Hopefully this will live up to it!



  49. 49

    Do they plan on bringing back Tim Curry? If not, then leave the '85 version alone.



  50. 50

    Aw man! I LOVED the old movie! It was a childhood fav! It will be cool to see a redo but I'll always be loyal to the old one! Who will they ever get to fill the role of Ms. Peacock? She was my fav! :)



  51. 51

    All these remakes of classic 80's movies, Fame, Clue. What's next, ET, Indy, or Goonies? Goo Bah!!!!!



  52. 52

    i love the 1985 version, but would love Gore to do a redo on this one…but if they got johnny in on it.. i would want him to play the butler/Mr Body…always has been my favourite character



  53. 53

    I wonder if it will be based off of the original version of clue or the revamped version that came out not even a year ago? Maybe if they base it off of the new version with 9 weapons and new rooms, it can be considered entirely different than the 1985 Classic. The old movie was amazing and I hope it doesn't get ruined!



  54. 54

    Just say no! The first one was a legendary dream of comedic proportions!



  55. 55

    I loved the first one! But a remake.. hmmm probably not a good idea.



  56. 56

    I don't know how I feel about this. I LOVE and own the 1985 version. Tim Curry as the butler?! Come ON! So awesome! Madeline Khan?! You can't top it! It'll be just another remake like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory if Depp signs on- which is fine, but the movie is perfect the way it is!



  57. 57

    I absolutely cannot wait! No need in complaining, if it sucks, the 85 version will still be there.



  58. 58

    Oh My Goodness!!! IM TOTALLY PSYCHED for this remake!!!! The original is one of my favorite movies. Lets pray for the triumphant return of Tim Curry!!!



  59. 59

    hmmmmm………prehaps Jim Carrey as butler if we have no Tim Curry?? lol



  60. 60

    Doesn't anyone have an original idea anymore?



  61. 61

    But I loved the original one! I don't want a remake the first one is still good, I just saw it the other day on TV. Please NOOOOWWW



  62. 62

    Wow really? NO IMAGINATION!!!!



  63. 63

    BTW when will they remake clueless???



  64. 64

    No!! The original is a classic, how can you replace madeline kahn, christopher lloyd, tim curry etc!! Fucking hollywood, nobody has enough imagination anymore, its all come down to remkes and sequels!! This fucking sucks, hope they dont butcher it.



  65. 65

    Yeah, the 85 version kicks butt, they dont really need another one. I'll probably end up seeing it though. I hope the cast is good.

    66

    Are there really no original ideas left for films? What's next? A remake of The Sound of Music with Britney?



  67. 67

    OMGOMGOMG I love Clue! I don't know why, but that was my favorite movie growing up. If Gore Verbinski fucks it up I will kill him in the study with the revolver!!!



  68. 68

    It wasnt funny in the 80's why would it be now?



  69. 69

    blah blah blah we know the twist



  70. 70

    love the game hope johnny depp is in it, then it would be fun
