we need a hardcore remake


with Colin Farrell....he can sure play like he has a hangover.

Yea but why would this film need to be remade? The original is fine the way it is...that's the problem with Hollywood today, not so much that they wanna remake everything, but rather that they keep remaking films that didn't need it! There's plenty of crap movies that can & need to be remade

PEACE & BLESSINGS

You said it! The original is just fine the way it is!

^^Agreed but I will say that there are some very good remakes but it's usually the ones that are made for the sake of making money alone that really stick out.

Rick Latimer - Kurt Russell

Jake Phillips - Idris Elba

Victor Duncan - Michael K. Williams ('Omar' from The Wire)

White Zac - Johnny Lewis ('Snowman' from Felon)

Ms. Orozco - Rosie Perez

Emile - Albert Daniels ('Brooklyn' from ATL)

Directed by Peter Berg

Music by the RZA

Yep, definitely need a remake. With clay mation maybe or midgets.

You guys definitely have too much time on your hands...:-s

ironic choice for Victor Duncan, since the guy who played him in the original (Matthew White) went on to play an Omar himself, in another HBO series, Oz

Nice cast, I could see that, especially back in the 90s after Russell did Breakdown. 

No to remakes of ANY kind!

if you want a more hardcore version you don't need a remake, just watch "Class of 1984"

they made one in 1996... The Substitute ! ;)

Last Movies: - Ted: 4/5
- Prometheus: 5/5
- The Dictator: 4/5

Of course it would need to be 'hardcore'. If it was subtle, no one would feel anything. Gotta love that force-fed emotion

I'm not for remakes, but this one I'd actually like to see be remade.... it's gotta be done properly though. This one was pretty bad. And no I'm not gonna apologize for not liking it either, it was cheesy.

I remember going to see this at the movie theater when it came out. I liked how it was made and thought it was great. I do not think that it needs to be remade at all in my opinion.

I just completed last month my first movie script called "THE POSSESSION OF INNOCENCE and have a Facebook page created about the movie. If you would like to know who has been casted in the movie or any other information then check it out. Thank you for your time, help, and support.

What do you mean by hardcore remake? Do you want a porno version of the Principal?

"Ron Jeremy as the Principal"

reply

Kurt Russell would be awesome for the part, imo.
