What next ? I thought when I read that some joker planned to remake Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS, can it get worse ? Well, this week I read that Madonna wants to remake Michael Curtiz’s CASABLANCA. Of course she has a twist and wants to set it in war torn Iraq! Surely she remembers that one of the reasons behind the story of the 1843 film was that it wasn’t set in a war zone but in a neutral open city. Of course, it is also just possible that the singer who has had a less than spectacular career in the movies doesn’t know that Pammy Anderson has already remade CASABLANCA as BARB WIRE. Let’s hope that Madge’s one trick pony film director husband, Guy Ritchie, manages to talk her out of her plans.
