Would anyone watch a remake? Who would you cast in the roles?
If they did remake it, I hope they'd make the series even more detailed. I bet they could even make a tv show out of it. I mean, we have "lost", we could get hooked on the Stand. They'd just have to put a deadline on the show so it wouldn't get lost in the story or the writers wouldn't end up stalling just to get more ratings. It would be nice to have a bigger budget too, cause there are moments in the miniseries that you can tell the budget was streteched thin. I could see this show on ABC, but I think it would be even better on F/X or Showtime.
I think it would be hard to recreate this movie. I mean, who else could be Stu Redman than Gary Sinise? He was amazing, not to mention hot! Ruby Dee was powerful as Mother Abigal...and who can top Ray Walston or Adam Storke or Rob Lowe? I'd be happy with a new Frannie, since Molly Ringwald skated through the film. Otherwise, I wouldn't want any network to remake this.
