Just like the rest of you we hate staring at stills that offer a whole lot of nothing. Don't get us wrong; the following three new stills from the remake of the 1971 classic film Straw Dogs aren't exactly action-packed, but they're better than just seeing folks stand around.
Like it or not (most of you fall into the not camp) a remake of the 1971 classic film Straw Dogs is well on its way, and though it's hit a few bumps in the road here and there the marketing wheel has officially started spinning.
With the remake of the 1971 classic film Straw Dogs now officially in the can, the big question on fans' minds is just how visceral this new version will be in comparison to the original. That being said, some new light has been shed upon the subject.
Is anyone really looking forward to the remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 masterpiece Straw Dogs? Anyone? Well, if you are amongst those who are super excited at seeing another perfectly good film put through the Hollywood ringer, we have some bad news for you.
Lord knows we don’t need another version of Straw Dogs; we just don’t. In fact, if there’s a common thread among all remakes these days (yes, even the good ones), it’s that they’re pointless. I’m sure director Rod Lurie (The Last Castle) will put together a competent enough film, but really: Why?
Much to the chagrin of many Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film Straw Dogs (based upon the book The Siege at Trencher's Farm by Gordon Williams) is getting itself a Hollywood make-over. Can director Rod Lurie capture the essence of the original masterpiece and successfully update it for our times? Well the jury is still out, but the cast is shaping up nicely.
