The Breakfast Club remake is in the works

Well Hollyweird is at it again! They are going to destroy yet another one of our movies. They had to mess with Red Dawn, The Karate Kid, RoboCop, Annie, and the upcoming Ghostbusters. Now, these unoriginal people are going to remake one of our most beloved ’80s films – The Breakfast Club.

A spokesman for Universal Pictures announced that the film will open on March 24, 2016 for a four-day opening weekend. This remake will be written and directed by Judd Apatow. Apatow, who was executive producer of the critically praised, award-winning series Freaks and Geeks, made the following statement: “The Breakfast Club was very influential in my film making career. The characters and storyline leave some great groundwork. We are going to bring this classic to the modern day.”

The cast for this remake is as follows:

  • Taylor Swift (Valentine’s Day) as Claire Standish, the princess, originally portrayed by Molly Ringwald
  • Zac Efron (High School Musical) as Andrew “Andy” Clark, the athlete, originally portrayed by Emilio Estevez
  • Justin Bieber (Behaving Badly) as John Bender, the criminal, originally portrayed by Judd Nelson
  • Jaden Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness) as Brian Ralph Johnson, the brain, originally portrayed by Anthony Michael Hall
  • Kristen Stewart (Twilight) as Allison Reynolds, the basket case, originally portrayed by Ally Sheedy.

A couple of popular side characters have also been cast:
Shia Labeouf (Transformers) will play Carl the janitor and James Franco (The Interview) will play assistant
principal Dick Vernon.

Taylor Swift said, “I am super excited for this opportunity to play Claire. And I am even more excited that I will also be contributing some sick beats in support of this movie!”
These “sick beats” she is referring to is the new Breakfast Club Soundtrack. Taylor will be performing 5 songs on the soundtrack, including a duet with Kanye West on a remake of “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. The soundtrack will also include songs from Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, One Direction, Rihanna, and Meghan Trainor.

Ugh! This whole thing is just a horrible idea! What’s next? A Back to the Future remake?!? A Goonies reboot?!? Another Ghostbusters remake – this time with a male cast!?! oh wait.

Well, what do you think? Are these remakes out of control? Or do you think these movies are a great homage to our generation of movies?

I would like to give a special Thank You to Tommy Flanagan for giving me the inside information on this travesty.

Yeah, That’s the ticket!

 

Quote of the Day: The Breakfast Club

Claire: You know, you look a lot better without all that black shit under your eyes.
Allison: Hey, I like all that black shit… Why are you being so nice to me?
Claire: Because you’re letting me.

Happy 47th birthday to Molly Ringwald!!! Also John Hughes would have turned 65 today.
