So far the actor who played nuChekov in Abrams' STAR TREK has been cast as Charlie Brewster 2.0 in this remake. I don't really know much else about it.

Personally, IMO I can't help but think: WHY?

What's the point? Why remake a quarter century old cheesy movie for?

"Twilight" piggybanking?


Thoughts?

Why?

Money.

Why set up a play that's already been done in another theater?

Right now the studios are run by people with no imaginations who only want a sure return on their investment dollars.

The only screenplays they are greenlighting are Xerox copies of something that's already been done.

"We know it made money before, so we'll do it again and make it shiny-er (or in Star Trek's case, with more lens flares.)

And as long as people will throw down their $10bills and credit cards, that's what we'll get.
