JAWS Reboot in 3D?

The internet was abuzz recently about the news of an upcoming JAWS reboot to be done in 3D. After the massive success of James Cameron’s Avatar, Hollywood is all over 3D, so this really comes as no surprise. The surprise though was that Tracy Morgan, of the NBC sitcom “30 Rock” was rumored to be playing Matt Hooper, which would make the remake a comedy? No!

Over at Cinema Blend, this is what was said:

“A source of ours over at Universal Pictures says the studio is strongly considering a remake of the summer blockbuster in hopes of dazzling younger audiences with new special effects. Their claim is that people now expect more, visually, from their movie going experience. So, Hollywood studios are inclined to take some of their tried and true franchise names like Jaws and bring them into the 3D world.Our insider says Tracy Morgan was at one point being considered for the part of Matt Hooper, previously played by Richard Dreyfuss. While it’s uncertain whether that’s still the plan, it does indicate that they seem to be taking a more comedic direction with the part.”

MTV caught up with Tracy Morgan at the premiere of Cop Out and asked him about the Jaws remake. Morgan: “I would love to do a ‘Jaws’ movie. That was a great, great franchise. I would love to do ‘Jaws.'” But when asked if anyone has ever spoken to him about it, he answered: “Not yet.”

Hollywood loves remakes, so there is no doubt in my mind that a JAWS reboot in 3D will be coming, and as much as I, and other fans are not in favor of it, we will all plunk down our hard earned cash and see it. Universal knows this — there is a lot of money to be made. My hope is that they treat it seriously, and not make it a comedy or a jokey action flick. The original JAWS is a classic, with Oscar-nominated actors providing perfect performances. Please don’t cheapen the legacy of JAWS any more than 1983’s JAWS 3-D and 1987’s JAWS the Revenge already have.

What do you think? Do you think a remake of JAWS could actually work? Who would YOU like to see in the roles of Hooper, Brody and Quint (and Mayor Vaughn, Ellen Brody and Bad Hat Harry)? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

National Lampoon’s JAWS 3, People 0 – Script and Review

One of the best things about Pat Jankiewicz’s new book Just When You Thought it Was Safe: A JAWS Companion is that has a reprint of the proposed movie poster for JAWS 3, People 0, the JAWS comedy/parody sequel that never happened.

In 1979, JAWS Producers David Brown and Richard D. Zanuck partnered with National Lampoon of Animal House fame, commissioned a script and signed on as Executive Producers. Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins, Innerspace) was to direct.

Matty Simmons, Producer of Animal House and Vacation came up with a story idea and the screenplay was by John Hughes (Vacation, The Breakfast Club, Home Alone) and Tod Carroll. The script involves a shark causing mayhem while a film company tries to shoot “JAWS 3”, and begins with JAWS writer “Peter Benchley” being devoured by a shark in his swimming pool while he is working on the script for “JAWS 3”. All the villains are film execs and the whole thing is very corny. According to Simmons, Steven Spielberg was not happy about the sequel and JAWS 3-D was made instead. Forces of Geek has uploaded the script for all to read at the link below:
