Just like it says in the title. Why in the world do they think they can improve 3:10 to Yuma? I understand the motivation behind remaking a well known movie, but this is not known well enough to have a built in audience. An Elmore Leonard story starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, with a couple of great character actors as well, Henry Jones and Richard Jaeckel, hell, it was damn near perfect.
Christian Bale will probably do an all right job in the Van Heflin role, and I guess with the right director Russell Crowe won’t stink on ice, but my God. I went to the movies and saw trailers for 5 movies, 4 of which were either sequels or remakes. They’re doing Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the third time. Somebody must be writing original scripts, why is it so hard to get one made?
