Reality? This story has been told. To retell a story of a “killer shark” does not work because the story is way deeper than that. It is about the characters and their struggle with the devil. I could retell this story a million times over with a different creature. Films such as “Super 8”, “Godzilla”, “Aliens”, etc. have all tried the same formula. The only movies that succeed in being hits are the ones that bring the characters to life for the viewer. If the audience cares about the characters and their struggle, the movie wins over the audience and is a hit. It could be any animal, villain, etc. So, asking for another JAWS is pointless. Spielberg knows this. Rebooting is wasteful also. Because Shaw, Snyder, and Dreyfus OWNED their parts and no other actors will ever come close to being that likeable.
Want to see a new JAWS? How about you just go into your DVD/Blue-ray collection and watch the original JAWS instead… I guarantee it will be 100 times better than seeing a new JAWS or a reboot.]]>
