The Day that Hollywood Stood Still

Is there nothing else left for Hollywood to ruin? Running in and out of rehab is nothing to be ashamed of in Tinsel Town, but coming up with a new idea for a film must be some sort of unspoken sin. Anyway it looks like the classic science fiction film “The Day the earth Stood Still” is set to be ruined, I mean “reinvisioned” by Fox:

The Day the Earth Stood Still Being Remade for 2008 – Confirmed!

“Apparently Box Office Mojo, the best website for all things box office earnings, has updated their schedule for summer 2008 and included a listing of The Day the Earth Stood Still to open on May 9th, 2008 (one week after Iron Man). The original is a sci-fi classic 1951 movie about an alien and a robot that land on Earth to try and save the world from being destroyed. IMDB doesn’t even have a listing for this remake, but Box Office Mojo claims it’s being produced by Fox, fast-tracked for a spot in 2008′s busy summer.”

Here’s a trailer for the “classic version” of the film:
