Over at Bighollywood.com there is an article about the possible re-start of the Remo Williams movies. The article explains the novels, for those of you who do not know about the only true martial art, Sinanju, and its two practitioners, Remo Williams and his teacher Chuin. It is hinted that some of the people behind the dark knight might be involved. Yesss! It would be great if they did this movie right. http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/j...iana-jones-if-hollywood-doesnt-blow-it-again/ While the original Remo Williams didn’t do well at the box office, it has picked up a cult following through home video and cable. I’ve gotten mail from fans who’d enjoyed the film for years before finding out the books even existed. And if my mailbox is any indication, pretty much everyone who came to the books via the movie agrees with us old-time fans: None of us can believe Hollywood did such a lousy job adapting the characters to the screen. But in our current age of endless updates and reboots comes some fresh cinematic hope, and if things work out Remo will soon be starring in a brand new motion picture adaptation brought to the screen by Sony and some of the folks who gave us Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Hopefully this time it’ll be the real Destroyer we see, a goal best achieved by not ignoring or re-imagining what’s made the book series a success. In the novels, Remo is an Everyman Superman who has fought Mafia thugs, drug lords, commies, Nazis, sentient computer programs and the occasional god. In the 1970s he even twice battled an unstoppable, shape-shifting killer android long before Ahnuld first vowed he’d be back. In books and in film, a great villain gets you halfway there. Unfortunately the first Remo movie didn’t have a Blofeld or Dr. No, no Terminator or Dr. Octopus. There wasn’t even a measly little Lex Luthor. No, in his first motion picture outing, Remo Williams — who has fought gods and lived — went toe-to-toe with a bad-guy American arms manufacturer whose great nefarious scheme was to sell crappy, malfunctioning guns to the Army. Is it any wonder moviegoers stayed away in droves? So there’s half the reason the first movie flopped right there.
