Unnecessary Remakes Alert

Dark Horizons is reporting today about two remakes that might be even more inane than many of the other remake ideas that have come down the pike recently.

Sony has gotten the idea that the world needs a newer version of the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Total Recall. The film is based on a Philip K. Dick story about implanted memories and Mars -- oh and the that triple-breasted woman. If she's not back there is no reason to make the film. For real.

Warner Bros. is teaming with Leonardo Dicaprio to produce a new version of The Neverending Story. The new film is going to be more nuanced then the original from 1984. I think in this case, nuanced means more psychodelic as I think stoned college kids are probably the biggest audience for the original films (yes, there were 3).
