Russell Brand is Remaking "Arthur"

Posted: December 4th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Russell Brand is Remaking "Arthur"Submit Comment
British comedian Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is developing a remake of "Arthur," the 1981 comedy that starred Dudley Moore, for Warner Bros as a potential starring vehicle.

Brand is meeting with scribes to write the screenplay, which will be produced by MBST's Larry Brezner, whose credits range from "Good Morning, Vietnam" to HBO's recent "Little Britain USA."

The original movie followed a boozy playboy rascal who is set to inherit a fortune if he marries an heiress his family thinks will make something out of him. However, he falls in love with a working-class woman and turns to his valet for help when his family makes him choose between money and love.

Moore was nominated for an Oscar as was Steve Gordon, the film's writer-director. John Gielgud, who played the valet, won the best supporting actor Oscar, and the movie's theme song, "The Best That You Can Do," won for original song.

Is Russell Brand as good as Dudley Moore?

That COULD be brilliant...as long as it's comedy and not useless raunch...

You mean Dudley Moore funny- and no of course he's not, but yes I am serious. Brand has the swagger to pull off a modern playboy re-telling...but ONLY if they rely on good writing and not Brand's style of bullsh*t raunchy humour...which would suck the life from Arthur completely...so hopefully Brand cleans up his act and takes a bath..."I'm going to take bath"....RE: "I'll alert the media." hahaha whooo! I still got that encyclopedia of film quotes going on up there. Ya never got me yet booze!

I could seriously see this being great. Brand is fantastic.

Brand is fan-f*cking-tastic. This will be nothing short of amazing.

This really COULD be good. And that's a big big COULD. I love Brand's style, Arthur is classic. Gielgud was just as great and I don't know who will be able to fill those shoes.

This guy was kinda funny in Sarah Marshall, but seriously, he's not that funny...and he sucked as an award show host.

OMG! BILL NIGHY!!! That man would be PERFECT- possibly even better. I can't watch him in a thing without thinking of Still Crazy.

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF? This is becoming embarrassing. Remake after remake. And I thought kids bringing back what they think were the 80s was bad enough.
