In an era where no film in untouchable and us film fans have seen such iconic creations like Michael Myers and Freddy ruined for the modern audience, there has always been a running joke that its only a matter of time before the flawless and masterpiece JAWS will get the remake treatment.
Even typing that fills my heart will dread, but thank goodness then for Steven Spielberg who directed the much loved 70’s classic. Spielberg insists that JAWS will never get remade, a stance similar to those behind the Back To The Future franchise.
” I would never remake one of my own movies — starting with Jaws — but there are Amblin titles in the library that could inspire new stories that were made popular by the films. There isn’t a single title that I’ve earmarked, but yes, I would like to. I will be discussing that with Jeff (Skoll) and Ronnie (Meyer) and Donna (Langley).”
“I would never remake Jaws,”
That is where we stand at the moment, but who knows in the near future, perhaps in 20 years time some idiot will think of it, but at the moment we can all breath a sign of relief….until the Suspiria remake rears its ugly head again.
