Do Not Want! James Marsden vs Sam Peckinaph
Lilly-white hunk-lunk James Marsden and the creator of Geena Davies' politico stinker Commander in Chief are angling to put the remake on Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs. Ugh. No thanks fellas. I'd prefer it if you didn't. The deal has been minted at Sony subsidiary Screen Gems, the offal outfit responsible for water treading genre bilge like Resident Evil, Underworld, and You Got Served. I shouldn't think Peckinpah's fraught misogynist revenge sieger could be easily panel-beaten into a tepid PG-13 thrillah. I'm sure these cats have the chops though. That's ambition for you folks!
