14 Bizarre Old Movies That Hollywood Needs To Remake Right Away
You might not realize this, but Hollywood actually made movies prior to 1970. Nowadays there is a plethora of films being remade and the films below have been selected because they are definitely the greatest prospects for remake success. Using only the title as a template here are 14 old films that are being pitched to Hollywood for a loosely based remake.
1. Fast and Furious (1939).
The name of this old movie is bizarre given that the plot of this 1939 film involves a couple of rare book dealers, a holiday and a murder mystery. It’s far from the franchise we’ve come to rely on giving us speed and rage and only those two things damn it! Imagine if Hollywood used the plot of this seaside murder mystery as their next Fast film. A classic murder mystery where Vin Diesel is revealed as the murderer at the end and we get to see Dominic Toretto for the monster he really is.
2. Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965).
Is this the best movie title ever or most bizarre? Probably a little bit of both. The title basically hands you the plot of this remake. Imagine an actual cat driving a car and turning the tables on humanity for all those domestic cats we constantly run over. You can see the tagline being something like “This Pussy’s out for revenge and the body count is going to be…catastrophic”. Come on, don’t act like you don’t want to see this movie.
3. Girls Gone Wild (1929).
It would be false to claim that the infamous spring break TV series of the same name originated from this 1929 movie but let’s pitch it based on that premise. In the summer of 1929 ladies from all over America go down to Florida and hit the beach in their one-piece bathing suits where they are accused of suffering mass hysteria. The Government is baffled, scientists do their tests but find no explanation, the ladies are quarantined and Dustin Hoffman has to find the cure before it’s all too late. This can be the prequel to Outbreak with Hoffman back in the title role playing his grandfather.
