We live in a world of reboots and remakes these days, so the fact that there are now rumblings of even more of them really shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. According to a new report, Morgan Creek Films is looking to bring Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Exorcist back to the big screen as they start selling off their library of films.
The studio is also responsible for the likes of The Last of the Mohicans and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, but any deal made would see them keep the rights to remake five of their past releases. Along with the two mentioned above, we may also end up seeing new versions of Major League, Young Guns, and Flying Tigers. All of these have potential to connect with moviegoers, but when and if they’re going to actually happen really remains to be seen at this point.
Morgan Creek has no debt though, and that’s why CEO Jim Robinson has said money for the sale would fund future productions. “We have a number of properties that we are looking to move forward on,” he confirmed, before adding that they’re already discussing remakes of some of the movies listed here.
So, prepare yourselves for an Exorcist reboot which will surely struggle to top the original and an actor who will no doubt be faced with constant comparisons to what Jim Carrey did as the original Ace Ventura.
Who knows though, they could just be on to something great here…what do you think?
