Say It Ain't So!
A rumor that been haunting me for days – nay, almost weeks – has surfaced. According to sources (who I’ve been unable to track down and hurt), Tom Cruise and John Travolta are interested in remaking the … “classic” isn’t even a good enough word for it … are interested in remaking Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You read that correctly: this guy and this guy reportedly think they can turn themselves into these guys.
A remake of Butch Cassidy is a great idea, don’t get me wrong. But no one wants to see Lt. Pete Mitchell and Vinnie Barbarino’s dads dodging authorities throughout the dry plains of the old west.
Listen, I don’t mean to be the Negative Nancy all of the time, but Hollywood really needs to start holding up its end of this bargain and stop coming up with such crap ideas.
