GUS AND HIS REMADE REMAKE?
Ok, people are really getting sick of remakes, but hey, I can handle it. But this is just rediculous, this has to be the worst idea in the history of film behind Josh and S.A.M. Gus Van Sant, director of the Psycho remake, wants to work on another remake, but this time he wants to remake Psycho??(!)....
During an interview with our buddies over at Moviehole, director Gus Van Sant was reported as saying, ?Psycho was great, a huge kind of grand experiment project. Very trial by fire. It met with a lot of criticism ? but we managed to keep afloat, I think we broke even. But no, I wouldn?t remake another movie again, however, I?m thinking of remaking Psycho again. Doing a third remake. The idea this time is to really change it ? we?re talking about doing a Punk rocker setting. Viggo Mortensen suggested it. He was married to Exene Cervenka and knows all the right people to get involved ? all the right punk rocker etc ? so he would definitely be involved if we go ahead.'
