Even The Mere Mention of a Vision Quest Remake Makes me Nauseous

Vision Quest

OK first of all Vision Quest is one of my favorite movies of all time.  Second of all Taylor Lautner?  Yes, Taylor f’-in Lautner is the one considering this role?  I’m gonna be sick.

He could wind up playing an updated version of Matthew Modine’s character in the still-in-development film, which counts Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment (and Twilight and New Moon fame) as producers. We hear that Richard Munic has penned a screenplay that is “very faithful” to the original film. “Taylor saw [the script] and is really excited about it,” says a source. “It’s very much in line with his athleticism [and skates. -Ed.]“

Twilight and New Moon producers?  Do my eyes deceive me?  Honestly guys, I’m not sure what to say right now but I’m getting awfully dizzy.

Twight Producers???!!!???!!??!?   Someone please bring me up for air.  What are they going to have like ridiculous homosexual undertones now?  Penned a screenplay that is “very faithful” to the original film?

Look, I’ve bitched about remakes in the past.  In fact, all three of us have.  And I would say in 99% of the cases were are strictly against remakes.  Well when it comes to Vision Quest I’m gonna go on record in saying I might actually consider taking a plane to Los Angeles to protest this.

Hell I might even send death threats to Taylor Lautner’s house.  And if Matthew Modine has read anything about this I sincerely hope he is against this no matter what they pay him.

Come on guys.  This is the best wrestling movie of all time and damned if Linda Fiorentino and her crazy fro didn’t look amazing.  You guys can’t do this to us.  You really can’t.

Please do NOT remake this film.

Here’s one of the best scenes of all time.  How the hell are they going to remake this?
