Wow. I thought the original was interesting (albeit depressing) curious how this goes. Seems to have some good actors in it.

wasn't the original good enough?

Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman...they were pretty good as I recall...

who they gonna get - Ben Stiller and Steve Carrel?

Sad. I recognize one actor. Hollywierd just cant be.original.
There are a lot of movies that should be remade and this isn't one of them.

It was much more than good enough. It was a very good movie. And Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman were superb. What a joke. Or, as Para said, blasphemy.

I guess it all depends on how its done. I remember when the True Grit remake came out I about lost it. Turns out is was very well done, and a pleasure to watch. Didnt diminish the first one at all for me. Ill keep an open mind about it, but yes Hollyweird has nothing original left to offer.

I instantly recognize some of 'em, and I don't watch a ton of TV & movies. That doesn't mean it will be any good, of course, but they're not a bunch of no-names.

Tommy Flanagan was in Gladiator, Braveheart, Sons of Anarchy.

Charlie Hunnam was the star of SoA and has a few movies to his credit, including two in the last year, I think. Hopefully he'll be good in this role. I think he's got a lot of potential.

Rami Malek has a lot of credits to his name. Many here will recall his memorable role in The Pacific as PFC Merriell 'Snafu' Shelton.

Ian Beattie was Meryn Trant in Game of Thrones...

With all of the good books and stories out there that would make a great movie why spend money on a remake of a classic that can only fall far short of the original?

On top of that who are they going to find as an equal to McQueen and Hoffman?

Oh, wait, this is the same Hollywood that thinks making a cartoons into a movie is the definition of originality.
