“Dam Busters” Remake, Dog Renamed
Yeah, OK, renaming the dog is probably a good idea.
Remaking The Dam Busters? A little confused as to WHY anyone would want to do this. I mean, its a little slow to start, and I don't think today's audiences would quite appreciate all the development and testing that goes on there.... but really? It's an excellent movie that really doesn't need remaking! Why? Oh yeah, because
nobody few in the film/TV business have a creative bone in their bodies....
I wonder if the universe will implode with New Dam Busters tipping the hat to Star Wars which was directly influenced by the original Dam Busters?
The 1955 film, which starred Sir Michael Redgrave and Richard Todd, told the story of Barnes Wallis' struggle to develop the bomb and the subsequent raids on Nazi Germany - codenamed Operation Chastise.
The remake is being produced by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.
A little reminiscing.....
