Steven Spielberg to Take on 1950s Remake

Let me put it out there that I’m a fan. Sure, I can get with the idea of friendly, finger-touching aliens who like the telephone. I’m all for thrilling war movies with deep character development. But when you start remaking some of Hollywood’s greatest films, I’ve got to hop out off the boat.

Spielberg is slated to remake Harvey, a very interesting joint about a six-foot invisible talking rabbit. I know that sounds strange, and sure I’ll give you that, but it’s truly a heart-warming flick and the silliness of it is beautifully tempered with Stewart’s raw talent and charisma.

Which brings me around to why I think this is a horrendously bad decision. I simply can’t get behind the idea of re-making anything starring Jimmy Stewart. He was truly one-of-a-kind and he’s actually my very favorite actor. And you just don’t run out and remake perfection…no matter who you are.
