A Remake of Smokey and the Bandit?

That should be a train-wreck. Wombat-socho at The Other McCain has Rule 5 Sunday: Sally Field

Aside from the fact that "smuggling" beer from Texarkana to Atlanta is a thing of the past...

Also, who could replace Jerry Reed, Burt Reynolds, and Jackie Gleason, to say nothing of Sally Field? Apparently Universal wants to give it a try, though. Here’s Sally in a still from the movie.

But then it has been clear for some time that Hollywood is brain-dead.

Wombat-socho also has the Rule 5 Linkage.

  1. So I looked it up. Seeing that it took place in the South, I'd think that would be a non-starter. That's just something that can't, and shouldn't, be touched.

  2. It will take place in east LA. The Burt Reynolds character will be played by someone like Ice Cube or Snoop Dog. They will be smuggling essential oils from somewhere south of the border to Vegas for use by celebrities who need to come down off of weeks-long drug binges. The Sally Field character will be played by either Cardi B or Rachel Dolezal, or maybe Hilaria Baldwin. The Jackie Gleason character will be played by a completely woke white actor perhaps Jeff Daniels, or Janeane Marie Garofalo as a transgender male who (of course) hates all humans born with a penis. The idiot son of the Jackie Gleason character will be re-written as the most intelligent person in the cast, and played by someone like Mayor Pete but with the anti-American outlook of Michael Moore combined with Greta Thornberg.

    1. Never underestimate Hollywood's ability to piss all over the intellectual property.
