Rumor Control: Michael Bay's 'Rosemary's Baby' remake?

Baby_l_2Not sure if this rumor — that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company is following up its reboots of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street with a remake of Rosemary’s Baby — is true, but if it is, it can only mean that Satan really did father a child, and that his initials are M.B. Can we at least get him to promise not to wink at the original by casting Mia Farrow in the Ruth Gordon role?

    How the hell can Michael Bay seriously call himself a film maker?? Except for PEARL HARBOR (only because it’s based on history), none of his films have ever told any real story. The man is nothing more than a demolitions expert, in my opinion.

  • Snarf

    Does this mean if the remake happens that the pram will blow up, followed by the nursery, the apartment and then the building? AWESOME!

    That’s the thing Mr. Friedmann…I don’t really think that Michael Bay has any illusions that he’s a real “filmmaker” (whatever that means) and nothing more than a guy who knows how to blow stuff up really well (witness his recent “awesome” commercial).
    Sorry, but I’m kind of over the whole “let’s hate on Michael Bay” thing. What can I say? I really enjoyed “Transformers”. It was complete trash, but it was fun.
    I’m also sort of over the whole “let’s hate on remakes” thing. Do we need remakes to classic films like Rosemary’s Baby? No, of course we don’t NEED them. Do they personally offend me? Not really. If anything, it can prop up the original and make people appreciate how good it was or make a younger generation that’s never heard of the older film check it out for themselves (which is never a bad thing).

    …all that being said, I WILL admit that I did a minor spit take when I heard they were thinking of remaking “Singin’ in the Rain”. I mean, that remake (just like most remakes) wouldn’t have been the end of the world, but, damn Hollywood! You can do better than that!

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Hollywood writers went on strike for over 3 months and we still can’t get any new material? What’s next…the new Casablanca starring Jessica Alba and Josh Harnett? The African Queen with Colin Farrell and Scarlett Johannsen? MAKE IT STOP!!!!!

  • Eric Friedmann

    KateDFW, I think I just fell in love with you! Buy yourself a drink (or seven) on me!
    If they ever, ever, ever remake CASABLANCA (my favorite black and white classic of all time!), I swear I’ll take hostages!

    Please dear God NO!! Bay is a master and testosterone driven films where things blow up. Period. He should leave Rosemary’s Baby well enough alone and focus on making another loud, brainless summer flick based on a toy. GoBots: The Movie, anyone?

  • Cara

    Well THAT’S a freakin’ buzzkill.
    What does it take to get someone deported? Let’s get on that. Michael Bay can go destroy things somewhere else.

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no
    I don’t know what’s worse: an actualy remake of Rosemary’s Baby or that that hack is involved. Bay is not a filmmaker. He just blows stuff up for a living.
    Note to Hollywood: Please make him stop! Please, please, please! Pretty please with sugar on it!

  • Nick

    I only liked Transformers. Stick to that Bay.

  • MD

    NOOOOO! Please leave this film alone!
    It’s one of my favourites!

  • KateDFW

    Thanks Eric, I will send you my bar bill tomorrow! :-)

    Hey, don’t mock Michael Bay. For a director I must say that he’s not bad looking. Still I can’t see Rosemary’s Baby being remade. The Omen remake was not bad but not good either. He should leave it be.

  • Stephanie T.

    Hey Snarf, if he does remake Rosemary’s Baby, I think that he should get his awesome pussycat to take on the Satan worshipers.

  • Rose Tyler

    Hands off Michael Bay! Someone stop this man. Now.
