John Carpenter has high hope for the Christine remake. Get ready for spooky season with a trio of horror trailers. Plus, what’s coming on FLCL Grunge. Spoilers, away!
Upon learning Bryan Fuller is directing the upcoming Christine remake, John Carpenter admitted “it’ll probably be better” than the original during a recent interview with Total Film magazine (via Games Radar).
Oh boy. Well, good luck to him. It will probably be better.
Original star Keith Gordon echoed his belief, adding:
I think [Fuller’s] really talented, and a good person to do it. I mean, I don’t have a negative feeling about people remaking something, especially 40 years later. Christine could be told in a different way and not be an insult to the original. There’s a very short list of untouchable classics that should never be remade – films where their groundbreaking-ness or idiosyncrasy is what makes them special. I wouldn’t want to see anybody’s remake of Citizen Kane, or 2001, or Raging Bull.
