Yep, I have returned to somewhat regular posting again, and just in time for another round of weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For lo, another remake is coming down the pike!
This time, it is Meatballs, the 1979 film featuring Bill Murray as a rebellious camp counselor who takes a nerdy kid under his wing while wacky hijinks ensue in the form of a prank war between them and a rival camp. Nearly every camp movie afterward has riffed off this classic. It is also the first collaboration between Murray (and his feature film debut), Harold Ramis as writer, and Ivan Reitman in the big chair.
As par for the course, no real info (like cast, director, or even a script) has been released, but we all know that is rarely an impediment to the process. Hell, many times having such things are a nuisance.
Meatballs was a personal favorite, even if it was overshadowed (rightly so) by their later films. Still, considering this film was already smothered to death by half assed sequels, I just cannot bother to get upset.
But I know you guys will do enough eviscerating for me. Don’t let me down!
