The Summit, news broke today that yet another favourite from my more youthful days is getting remade -- Sylvester Stallone's mountain climbing thriller Cliffhanger.
Not much else is known, other than The Fast and the Furious producer Neal Moritz and StudioCanal are producing. Alleged up-and-coming screenwriter Joe Gazzam (never heard of him) is writing the thing.
I don't really know what else to say. I dig Cliffhanger. It's a fun and kinda cheesy action flick with some wicked stunts. How a remake can bring more to the table is a mystery to me and, although the role isn't iconic, I can't image anyone else as the lead another than Sly.
Besides, has anyone been clamouring for a Cliffhanger remake? Didn't think so.
In the meantime, groove on the original trailer, which is awesome:
