Brokeback Mountain 2


If the report from The Daily Mirror is true, this would be one of the most ill conceived remakes of all-time. Allegedly, Tom Cruise and John Travolta are having discussions in between Xenu lectures about co-starring in a remake of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. In the new version of the Paul Newman Robert Redford classic, Tom would play the Redford role while John Travolta would play the Newman role.

Whatever. I actually half hope this story is true and that Tom really is looking for screenwriters because I have a feeling this would be the biggest flop ever. It would be Ishtar big or Heaven's Gate big. Unfortunately, I don't believe the story because I don't think John and Tom could stand to be in the same room with each other for five minutes, let alone go somewhere in the desert and film a movie together for two months.

Although the movie would probably suck, I would like to see the behind the scenes footage of the filming. That would probably be great.

this can't be true.

The way Gay Cruise's movies are flopping I doubt that Travolta would agree to this.

Sylvia said...

Is that an old picture of Gay Cruise cause he doesn't have a single frown on his forehead.

Unless he is into Botox.

I thought John and Tom were friends.

Do these two boys hate each other? Interesting...

What is this, April Fools Day?

Maybe it's a parody--like the Brady Bunch movie.

Yes, he's into plastic surgery. In Brazil.

As much as I can't stand Tom Cruise and Scientology, I would LOVE to see Travolta and Cruise try to do a Brokeback Mountain remake, just for the novelty factor.

WELL THAT WOULD FINISH THE COMEBACK....YES..YES...YES

Goodgrief & Little Miss, I think Enty implied before that they had a fallout over a power struggle in the church.

Syko said...

Nooooooooooo!

pomme said...

i also believed they were friend!
and Nooooooooooooooo! not another stupid remake as the idea of Mickael Bay to remake "the birds"!

Enty, you slay me.....brokeback island perhaps?

The thought of this makes me gag.

Oh please dear god no. What is up with people in Hollywood remaking movies instead of writing something new? What happened to creativity? What happened to innovation? Why is Hollywood obsessed with remaking old classics?! Why can't they leave well enough alone?! Please tell me that they are not actually considering remaking Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - do they REALLY think that Cruise and Travolta can do it better than Newman and Redford?!

*Sigh. What the heck is the movie biz coming to?

It's one thing to remake Butch & Sundance.

It's another thing to REWRITE Butch & Sundance. This is a Bill Goldman script that is used to teach others how to write screenplays. Used for teaching, for pete's sake!!!! AND YOU WANT TO BRING SOMEONE NEW IN TO REWRITE IT!!!!!

/shoots self in head

they can't stand to be in the same rm? but i thought all xenu's children loved each other!

i think they don't hang out because of the gayness. xenu cures the gay, but doesn't like to test it out.

i believe they are "cordial", but not friends. that came out (ha! good one) after jett's death.

ardleigh said...

Oh that is just WRONG on so many levels. I'm suprised TommyBoy didn't pick the Fresh Prince to play Redford. The remake of this is as bad as Hollywood wanting to remake Casablanca. Hollywood needs to stop doing remakes and pick new material.

libby said...

Excellent point, A Pimp Named DaveR.

And Bionic Bunny, I got the idea that Cruise was annoyed by Johnny's transgressions (gay sluttishness wherever he goes). John is not very 'cured,' and I think Cruise is such a control freak that he would hate John's behavior.

I'm going to say it: Travolta looks like a 'power bottom.'
Cruise would go more for guys like himself. That's what my gaydar tells me. No evidence.

Would anyone really pay to see a fatass with a bad wig ride a horse? Good lord! I would feel sorry for it. Travolta's really deluded if he thinks he could come CLOSE to Newman's presence and charisma.

Dead on!

Also made me giggle fiendishly.

mikey said...

Is Tommy more cured than Johnny? I've heard a lot of rumors about John but not so much about Tom. MOO is that John pays more for silence.
