Sounds like they're going to needlessly brighten this up. :(

Still, it may mean MGM finally get off their backsides and put out the HD master of the original film on Blu-ray.

This completely states that Hollywood has lost their mind, they are going to ruin a good animated movie with this crappy "alvin" like remake. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I'm quite afraid of what Paramount may end up doing. Although having someone like Burger on board to write the screenplay might ease things a little. I just don't know by how much. If he directs, then expect a serious film much like his past credits.

Well, thinking about it some more, Paramount/Nick (who I am sure will be the division that ultimately makes this) did do a good job on the recent Charlotte's Web, which wasn't a laugh-out-loud conversion at all.

There is hope, people, even if it is inevitably softened even more than the Bluth original in the long run.

Bluth's version was pretty dark for a cartoon and that's what made it unique. I hope the remake retains that element rather than dumbing it down for an audience of 5 year olds.
