When your overall opinion is that you’re ok with remakes, it’s sometimes really hard to stick to your guns when news like this hits. Apparently the powers that be in Hollywood found the time to be right to bring back a movie that maybe has a cult following, but is mostly the butt of a few jokes. ‘Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’ will be returning to the big screen. The remake will be penned, and I swear I’m not making this up, by the Ask a Ninja webshow writing duo Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine.
So many things are vying to make my brain pop right now. Ok, I thought Ask a Ninja was funny for a little while. The schtick got old and I moved on to another YouTube series. (The Guild. Watch it. It’s pretty funny.) But a feature-length remake? Of ‘Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’?! The only good thing to come out of this is that George Clooney will probably have a few good quips to make about it.
Read it and weep.
