Remake This Movie RIGHT

“Remake This Movie RIGHT!” is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version of how a modern retelling should go. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
