Please, I Beg You, Do Not Remake “Arthur”
Let me ask you: what do you see here? You see Dudley Moore, John Gielgud, and Liza Minnelli. What do you not see? You don’t see anybody that thinks they can re-make the comedic gold that these three people mined in “Arthur”. Actually, someone did try to recreate “Arthur” once. It’s called “Arthur 2: On The Rocks” and it sure ain’t pretty.
Russell Brand is in talks to star in a remake of “Arthur”. Please God…no.
