Stepford Update

Post by Baron » Sat Feb 08, 2003 12:39 pm

Stick a fork in it - it's done.
A classic will be trashed.

While surfing, I came across the following at movies.com:

01/17/03
Roger Bart, currently playing Leo Bloom in Broadway's The Producers,
has signed on for a role as a gay confidant of Nicole Kidman's
character. "I play this rather mincing fellow who comes to the
community, gets fixed, and becomes quite the poncho-wearing,
beer-guzzling soccer dad," Bart says. "It's very funny and allows me
a great opportunity to play a rather extreme version of the same
person in the movie." (Variety)


They just don't get it. :evil:
Might as well paint a mustache on the Mona Lisa! :evil: :evil: :evil:
Assemble the ladies? I didn't know that they were broken......

The further along this film gets into production, the more dissapointed a become. I can't stand the thought of turning this classic into some screwball comedy. The tone of the original is going to be completely lost.

The best we might hope for is a couple of well done scenes using state of the art CGI. As a whole, however, this film will likely be a piece of crap by ASFR standards.

I know there has been a lot of negative comments about this upcoming film, but lets all face it.

We're ALL going to see it anyway.

:)

The fact is, we're pretty starved for new gynoid movies, and the idea of seeing something new is too tantilizing (okay how many of you saw Mumford or Inspector Gadget just to see the gynoids?).

So as much as we might hate the concepts and ideas of the new Stepford Wives, or Westworld, we're STILL going to end up subjecting ourselves to it....well...at least SOME of us will. :)

Some more details

Post by noidguy » Wed Mar 12, 2003 9:39 pm

Found this on.... well, I've forgotten.

Country singer Faith Hill is joining Nicole Kidman in the rapidly-expanding cast of the remake of The Stepford Wives, which is due to begin filming in June.

The dark comedy, about a woman who moves into a neighbourhood where husbands have transformed their wives into robots designed to cater to them, was first filmed in 1975 and is based on Ira Levin's novel of the same name.

Oscar-nominated Catch Me If You Can star Christopher Walken and Oscar-winner Glenn Close are to play the civic leaders of Stepford while John and Joan cusack have also joined the cast, playing residents of the town, reports Daily Variety.

Found this at Z Review:

>Wednesday 12th March 2003: The Stepford Wives Update:
Christopher Walken and Glenn Close are in talks to join the Frank
Oz-directed remake of The Stepford Wives. Walken and Close are being lied up
to play the town leaders of Stepford.<

Walken might bring a little perverse humor - but Glenn Close? If her role is human, that's one thing; if she's supposed to be a gynoid, well........

I'm getting that queasy feeling AGAIN............Image

I hope I'm wrong........

"Yuck" doesn't cover it, Kish...might as well sign Rosie O'Donnell or Roseanne or Grace Jones...

THAT'S "yuck!", found under the sub-heading, "sick and wrong!"

Oh I don't know,

Glen has that great husky voice.

Mite be interesting to hear her do some gynoid speak.

Do you know why guys like girls with husky voices?

Because it means maybe she's almost finished bitching! :P

Some roles clarified

Post by noidguy » Fri Apr 11, 2003 12:49 pm

The IMDb reports that Faith Hill will play the role of Charmaine - portrayed by Tina Louise in the original. Christopher Walken will play Dale Coba - not a surprise, really. And Glenn Close will be Dr. Emily Francher. Biiig deal. In the original this character was on screen for about 5 minutes as Joanna's shrink. At least she's not taking up one of the 'babe' roles.
