I am a massive fan of the original, but I can kind of see this working, the whole drama of the original was them secretly filming something they weren't meant to, which then put the pilot and his copilot in danger, I guess that part at least could still happen, but we wont have the final fight over LA with quite the same level of danger if Murphy is never actually on board.
With Dana Carvey as the voice of the drone.....
(If dont get the joke...look up Blue Thunder tv series)
Enough already! I'm so sick of these remakes of good movies. If you're going to remake something, at least pick a movie that had a good premise, but didn't quite work. I hate the drone idea. The action in Blue thunder was 2 guys having an aerial cat and mouse game. Now what, two guys sitting at their computers? Exciting.
...so it's Blue Thunder in name only?
A Syfy Original Movie.
But guys, I heard that it will be an ALL FEMALE DRONE cast, so it should work...
