Or they're going to use Dan O'cannon's original concept, which was to have an insane PD Helicopter pilot hijacking an advanced helicopter and then using it on innocent bystanders. But in this case, it's the pilot stealing the controls of a drone and using it in the same manner.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.
Watching that series was a dream come true. Not because it was great or anything, but knowing that the series was going to reuse as much footage from the actual film as much as possible. Sometimes it was super awesome because the footage would be alternate takes of the same shots that I was super familiar with.With Dana Carvey as the voice of the drone.....
(If dont get the joke...look up Blue Thunder tv series)
I'm calling it now: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.
Just like all the other remakes and sequels. Total Recrap, RoboCylon, Terminator Genisux...so it's Blue Thunder in name only?
if it had been SyFy then it would have been about a wrestler called Blue Thunder :lolA Syfy Original Movie.
That changes everything and makes it sound awesome, notBut guys, I heard that it will be an ALL FEMALE DRONE cast, so it should work...
