Soon, there will be no more films to remake, no more comic books to plunder, and no more television shows to be made into movies. What will Hollywood do then? No one knows. But, for now, there are still old movies to redo. How about Supergirl and Teen Wolf? Yes, these two bastions of 80's cinema might be getting a new look at the theater, and it's going to be...well, probably awful.
You see, Supergirl, from its inception, is a tremendously bad idea. It was made to cash in on the success of the Superman comic book way back in the day, and to cash in on the success of the Superman films when the lovely Helen Slater put on the costume in the 80's. Not even Faye Dunaway could save it from being a really crappy film. And any remake will be crap warmed over.
And then there's Teen Wolf. Hey, TheFeed is just as much a Michael J. Fox fan as the next guy, unless the next guy is Tracy Pollan, but that's the problem with a Teen Wolf remake. It wasn't the movie that was good, it was the zeitgeist that swept us all into that Foxian cult of personality, in which we would all have watched Alex P. Keaton do paintings of Popes, if that were his chosen milieu.
So, intrinsically, Teen Wolf also sucks. So, that's why a remake is a bad idea. Because no one on Earth has the kind of personality or vibe that Michael J. Fox had in the 1980's. This is TheFeed's Michael J. Fox theory, and we're sticking to it.
