During the past year anytime I’ve recommended Darren Lynn Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera to anyone, they look at me and ask whether or not I’m referring to the 1984 Alex Cox comedy Repo Man. I expect even more confusion this winter when the upcoming organ harvesting flick formerly known as Repossession Mambo hits theaters with a suspicious title change.
Universal recently announced that their organ repossession flick will hit theaters sometime in early 2010 under the new title Repo Men! (complete with exclamation point – for some reason). Not sure why Universal is so keen to resemble a film that didn’t exactly garner mainstream attention, but there it is.
Repo Men! stars Jude Law, Liev Schreiber, Alice Braga and Forest Whitaker. We’ll bring you more as it happens.
