    I'd like to see Tom Green star in a remake of El Topo written by Larry Cohen and directed by a pre-00s Peter Jackson. The original isn't strange enough, but, put into the right hands, I think this film could do some damage.

    Sorry, can't do pre-00s Peter Jackson because he doesn't exist anymore. But speaking of that,why not a pre-00s Shyamalan instead?

    My first pass....


    "Watchmen" -- Sam Mendes
    "Flatliners" -- David Fincher
    (alternately, swap those two)


    "The Uninvited" -- Brad Anderson
    "The Dark Knight Rises" -- the real Christopher Nolan
    "9" -- Guillermo del Toro
    "The Human Centipede" -- David Lynch
    "Highlander 2" -- Alex Proyas
    "Prince of Darkness" -- Wes Craven
    "Predator" -- Neil Marshall
    "The Omen" -- Lars Von Trier

    I got a good laugh from both of those. Can you imagine the music track to Brokeback? It would be SPECTACULAR SPECTACULAR!


    [*]Nudist Colony of the Dead, Tom Hooper
    Less music, more King's Speech?

    [*]Alien 3, David Fincher
    okay ,so he didn't get to make the version HE wanted to....

    It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, with Rosie O'Donnell as the demented ESFJ mother-in-law (formerly played by Ethel Merman); Morgan Freeman as Captain Culpeper...

    Why stop there?

    Raging Bull - Jane Campion
    Schindler's List - Michael Bay
    Bad Boys - Gus Van Sant
    Casablanca - Paul Verhoeven
    Taxi Driver - Ron Howard
    Fatal Attraction - Michael Haneke

    Actually, I think that last one would be pretty amazing.

    Ron Howard would direct anything.

    But how about:

    • Schindler's List, Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as Oscar Schindler, Paul Reubens as Iztak Stern, and Helena Bonham Carter as Amon Goeth
    • Fatal Attraction, Catherine Hardwicke
    • Saving Private Ryan, Michael Bay
    • Earthquake, Roland Emmerich
    • Deliverance, Eli Roth
    • Brazil, Zack Snyder
    • Logan's Run, Paul Verhoeven (this would be brilliant, actually)
    • Glen or Glenda, Gus Van Sant or Joel Schumacher

    Yes, I'm sure he could manage to make Taxi Driver into a heart warming tale.

    [*]Schindler's List, Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as Oscar Schindler, Paul Reubens as Iztak Stern, and Helena Bonham Carter as Amon Goeth


    My biggest question is, would Helena Bonham Carter's hair actually go that flat? Or would she re-interpret the role with crazy hair? Actually that could work...

    [*]Saving Private Ryan, Michael Bay
    *shudder*

    [*]Deliverance, Eli Roth
    Genius. I'm sure he could really extend those rape scenes and add some graphic mutilation to spice it up. Sadly, I don't think it's possible for him to stereotype Southerners as any more ignorant, sadistic, and in-bred than the original already does - but who knows, he may find a way.
