Talking at The Horse Brass last night Russell sang a snippet of the theme from “Alfie” and we briefly discussed Jude Law’s remake of that and the critical reaction to his version of “Sleuth”. Russell suggested Law and George Clooney for a remake of “The Man Who Would Be King” as the next step (which brought me back to my desire to see a “Three Kings 2”) but the Caine movie I really want to see Law do next is “Zulu”. That should be a minefield of ethical problems.
Also discussed: Brat Pack remakes. John Carpenter’s movies are getting redone, why not John Hughes?
