Writer Discusses "Slap Shot" Remake

Posted: August 31st, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Writer Discusses "Slap Shot" RemakeSubmit Comment
YourMovieMaven chatted with writer Peter Steinfeld (Be Cool, 21), who revealed that he is currently writing the remake for the 1977 R-rated hockey film "Slap Shot." Here is what he had to say:

"Right now I'm finishing writing the re-make of the iconic hockey movie 'Slap Shot' for Universal. I've never had so many people hate me for writing something they haven't seen yet. It's such a classic film and fans of the original feel like I'm grave-robbing or something. But I think the movie will be really fun and will capture what it's like to play minor league hockey in 2008. We haven't set cast yet, so I'll keep you posted as it all goes down."

The original film stars Paul Newman and revolves around the player/coach of a small town professional hockey team, who must deal with hostile crowds and on-ice thuggery in this warm-hearted and only slightly farcical look at minor league ice hockey.

When you make a direct to DVD sequel and that does horribly on top of actually being horrible- you usually don't write a remake for theatrical release. Terrible idea...I don't hate the writer (even though that's how he's milking his 'woe is me' BS), but this is just stupid. Just write a fucl
