Three Of Jerry Lewis' Best Flicks Getting A Reboot

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Because as we all well know, Hollywood is only interested in making movies that have already been made.

Remakes are in the works for three for Jerry Lewis' most successful comedies - The Bellboy, Cinderfella and The Family Jewels.

Back in the 60s, these flicks were smashes for Jerry, catapulting him even further into stardom. That's the ultimate goal AI Entertainment and Social Capital Films have set for themselves in acquiring the rights to these movies. Each project is said to be going into development as a franchise for a major comedy star, though no names have been mentioned yet.

Christopher Tuffin, one of the producers for the films, told sources his aim is to "combine the spirit of the originals with a modern sensibility."

You know, call us crazy, but we think the last time someone brought a "modern sensibility" to a Jerry Lewis movie, Eddie Murphy found himself trapped in a 300 pound suit screaming, "Hercules! Hercules!"

Made tons of money for sure, but at what cost to everyone's pride?

Just saying.

    He was kinda funny in his old movies from the 50's….and yet, a big nasty pig in real life. He's had a lot of hateful things to say about women over the years.

    "pride" HAHAHAHAHA! This is Hollywood baby. It's all about the MONEY. Pride, who the fuck gives a shit about pride when it comes to making a movie?

    Oh God, no!!! They will ruin those movies! There is no need to defile those classics. Jerry Lewis is the only one who could do The Bellboy. I know he's made some awful comments, but his movies were hysterical and he does spearhead the MDA and I just don't think anything good is going to come of remaking these.

    They were great at the time. But Hollywood is going to want to update them give them a bit of an edge. It will stink and look stupid. If they are going to re-do them, they need to keep them clean, G-rated, and go for the holiday family crowd.

    Bad Idea!
    Nobody wants to see any thing he did.
    He is just a evil,hateful,nasty,old pig.
    Everybody knows how mean and nasty he treats people now.
    In the 50's& 60's no one knew how awful he was in real life so he was popular.
    Now we know no one will watch anything of his.
