Eh. They shouldn't try. I think it would be terrible. There is no way it could be close. You don't remake classics.

Yet, Hollywood had remade these classic films:

The Pink Panther
The Shaggy Dog
The Producers (stay with me, here...)

... and others...

Romeo and Juliet comes to mind, plus I saw three film versions of Hamlet.

Need I go on?

I'd love to see SUNSET made into a film. I'd shoot it in B&W, though. That's the only way I think it'd work. But I've never seen it onstage.

Andy.

And they are terrible. Sunset is an iconic film. It would be like remaking Casablanca.

It's not a remake of the movie, it's a movie version of the musical stage version which is very good, and very faithful to the film in everything from characters to dialogue!

Well, about 10 years ago Cameron Mackintosh promised Les Mis... still hasn't happened... POTO was promised almost as soon as it opened...

Appearently Christmas 2006 it will be released. Glenn Close stars as Desmond and Hugh Jackman is reported to be Joe Gillis.

Though, I haven't heard if they've started shooting, yet...
