And that’s not all they want...

SFX - - First Contact -

Pete Gillespie Mas­sive wicker hats all round.

Ar­timus Drawn Mul­lets. Mul­lets and cow­boy boots.

Dennis Eikenköt­ter He should wear that shirt.

Stacy Kane Plenty of prac­ti­cal ef­fects.

Rachael Bren­ner Re­tain the tongue- in- cheek tone of the orig­i­nal. And John Car­pen­ter has to record the theme song. Brit­pic Dolph Lund­gren.

Dave Low Mar­tial arts stars in the sup­port­ing cast. Don­nie Yen would make an amaz­ing David Lo Pan. And the chap from The Raid could be Wang Chi.

Gary Pratt Can The Rock con­vince as an in­ept ac­tion hero? If he can bring some­thing new to the char­ac­ter of Jack Bur­ton then the film will be worth a watch, if not then we would be bet­ter off stick­ing with the orig­i­nal film.

Robáird Mac An TSaoir I want to see Kurt Rus­sell. The Rock is great, but Rus­sell is ol’ Jack Bur­ton.

Michel Loutchani­noff It’s a per­fect movie, why would you want to re­make it? God for­bid they green­light some­thing orig­i­nal!

Lee Maby I wish this re­make wasn’t hap­pen­ing. The movie was per­fect for the ’ 80s and will not work now.

Michael A Bartholomeau Dwayne John­son would be bet­ter suited to use his tal­ents on a book se­ries that has not as yet been ex­ploited. For in­stance he might con­sider the Doc Sav­age se­ries, it would be a per­fect ve­hi­cle for him.

Shaun Wat­son Re­mas­ter and re- re­lease the orig­i­nal.

Rick Reny Jack Bur­ton’s char­ac­ter is es­sen­tial, he makes the movie. The Rock is great but he’s not be­liev­able as a bumbling every­man, and if he’s play­ing an orig­i­nal char­ac­ter then that’s even worse. Only so­lu­tion would be to bring in Kurt to have Jack in­volved in the sto­ry­line and have The Rock take a co- star­ring role, but we know that’s not hap­pen­ing so what’s the point again?

Andy Hall The Rock in an ac­tion movie, SOLD.

Jack­son Make it in China.
