Ohhh Noooo. This rumor has raised it's ugly head again. Will somebody please get a shovel and put this thing out of it's misery? The only plus to this story, is I get to reuse the movie poster shoop from last April.
According to IOL Entertainment, "John Travolta and Tom Cruise are keen to remake ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’.
John said: "Someone came up with a good idea - it was a remake of ‘Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid’ - and there was a rumor that we were gonna do that, and I said to Tom, 'It's not a terrible rumor, it's not a bad idea.'"
Tom and John – who are both dedicated members of the bizarre sci-fi cult Scientology – have reportedly already met with scriptwriters and the film may be made by Tom’s United Artists Studio.
Tom is said to be keen to take on the role of bank robber Sundance, while John is keen to reprise Robert’s role of The Kid. The film is reportedly special to Tom and earlier this year a source said he was excited by plans to remake the film.
Tom getting excited about working with John? Katie's not going to be happy about that. Oh, and better order some extra Kleenex, or whatever Scilon actors use nowadays, to mop up their thetan goo. And as a reminder to Tom, the jump scene into the river isn't quite the same as jumping off Oprah's couch.
I think the Alternate Ending to Cruise's Risky Business pretty much sums up where the Sundance remake is heading.
