ok... rumor has it that new line cinema is going to, or probably already in the process of remaking the classic japanese movie BATTLE ROYALE. it seems that this is the current trend in hollywood since the beginning of the millenium, as we've all seen - the ring, grudge, one missed call, the eye, etc... and the general consensus is that the conversion of these eastern films into a western movie has been a total let down so far. there are may be a few exceptions perhaps, but i cant really think of any right now. what do you think will the results be for this upcoming remake of BATTLE ROYALE going to be??? what are your thoughts, suggestions, opinions, comments, remarks, criticism on it???

If its just a rumor then I wouldnt suggest spreading it. I would say though that it would be awesome just because america does pretty damn good with action movies. Horror movies are iffy at best and romance is kinda tarded.

well, the remaking rights have already been bought by new line cinema, so its only a matter of time. its been said that production of a remake has been halted due to the incident in virginia tech, and everythings been pushed back... way back for now. but what do you guys think of the idea of remaking this masterpiece?

i think they should leave it alone. come on how many movies can americans mess with, they need to make up their own ideas! i just was imdb.com and they showed battle royale to be in production in 2008, but they don't say by who or who is in it. so give it some more time before they put the complete info up to see what is going to really happen with this great movie.

I think it will be completely crap and I have no intention of ever watching it. Not to mention that with all the school or college massacres that have happened in America in recent years, Battle Royale doesn't seem like the most appropriate film.

Don't want to see rude but is there any particular reason why hollywood feels the need to copy all these Asian movies? I heard that it's because the English speaking nations can't be bothered to read subtitles which is completely pathetic. The worst thing is that when these films get remade in America some ignorant people actually believe that the original Asian film is the copy.

I'm going to stop talking about this now because this is a topic which I find extremely annoying.

A remake? For what?
Battle Royale is one of the best movies I have ever watched. If there comes a remake, I will definitely watch it, but it will never be as good as the original

i heard they did delay due to the massacre's at schools. i honestly do not want to see them remake it because they will miss the point of what the movie actually means which is the real reason why it is soo great. Stop remaking films, no one wants to watch remakes anymore

a remake would be really hard to do. i somehow feel like itd seem unrealistic. also, the films about the political message and this remake sounds like its just for money.
