VAULTCAST: Conversations in the Dark... w/T.L. Bugg

It's that time again, when I sit down with a fellow blogger and chat up some weighty topic or another. This week on Conversations in the Dark, it's the lord and master of The Lightning Bug's Lair, and we get pretty in-depth on some of the hottest projects hitting theaters within the next 12 months. So join us as we delve into the trials and tribulations of The Wolf Man, the potential of Shutter Island, and why Let Me In is just so incredibly depressing...

Great conversation. I'm actually a little pre-forgiving to the Let the One In remake as long as it sticks to Matt Reeves' previous statement that it's an adaptation of the novel and NOT a remake of the film.I loved the book and thought the original was a near perfect adaptation, but there was a lot of ground it didn't covered (which was probably the right choice) so I'm curious to see Reeves' look at it from a different angle. Will I be angry with the end result? Most likely, but I'm of the mind that good source material can yield more than one adaptation.

True, but don't you think that this is just another American remake that's only being done because the powers that be think that Americans are too dumb to respond to a foreign film? Why else re-adapt a book that was just adapted into a movie two years ago?

Oh, of course the MOTIVES are purely financial, but the same could be said about The Departed, Cronenberg's The Fly, Carpenter's The Thing, or any other remake/studio financed film. Still, I want to believe that this isn't the same case as the REC/Quarantine issue because it's a book, not movie, being adapted for an American audience. Nothing will disappoint me more than if Matt Reeves--who showed potential with Cloverfield, a film I respected without loving--decides to copy shots from the original film and simply delivers an English version. But I don't want to dismiss this just yet. I'm counting on an adaptation, not remake. Can't say I'll get it, but I'm willing to give it a chance.
