Crawford v. Winslet

In Celebrities, Film, Joan Crawford, Kate Winslet on 02/28/2010 at 5:41 am

So it seems HBO has grabbed Warner Bros. classic film Mildred Pierce starring one of my favorite actresses, Joan Crawford, to turn it into a miniseries and are replacing Crawford with Kate Winslet. This will probably be one of the few remakes that will ever occur that I will approve of. I’m really sick of cheap remakes that collect audiences based purely on seeing their beloved classic remastered and modernized. Winslet seems to be a woman of style and wouldn’t have taken a role if it wasn’t worth while as most of her films have been great successes in the past few years.

A film that is rumored to being remade soon is Gone with the Wind, which possibly will be starring Rachel McAdams and Hugh Jackman. I don’t know how the hell Hollywood is going to make Jackman and McAdams better than film legends Vivienne Leigh and Clark Gable…but it’s definitely a failure I would pay to see.
