Universal Pictures to Remake "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Posted: July 31st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Universal Pictures to Remake "Jesus Christ Superstar"Submit Comment
Universal Pictures is currently in talks with "500 Days of Summer" director Marc Webb to helm the studio's upcoming "Jesus Christ Superstar" remake. Universal and producer Marc Platt are in active development on the project.

The original 1973 film is based on Tim Rice's Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera that appeared on Broadway one year prior and became a media sensation for its quality and controversy. It tells the story of the final six days in the life of Jesus Christ through the troubled eyes of Judas Iscariot.

"500 Days of Summer" is Webb's first feature film, but contains bits of a musical. In one scene, Joseph Gordon-Levitt dances down the streets of downtown Los Angeles to Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams" as a group forms to dance around him.

This remake is about as pointless as the Soylent Green remake I heard is in the works.

Although admittedly, it might not be too bad since Webb is directing it.

Really... they're remaking Soylent Green?! I agree... the original (SG) was amazing (the concept of the story) and does NOT need to be remade. Although.. just having typed that... movie-goers today wouldn't want to see a re-release of that movie and watch Charleton Heston (I would, but then again... I a big fan!). So it'll be the same Will Smith(ish) current replaying Chuck from The Omega Man. I see that Hollywood thinks these stories need to be retold (I agree... the late 60's - Planet of the Apes, and 70's SG and Omega Man... great stories!). But I guess Hollywood is ALSO admitting writers today can't come up with stuff like this... shame.
