Michael Bay To Remake "Rosemary's Baby" [Updated]

Rogert Ebert tweeted..."Michael Bay is remaking "Rosemary's Baby. O....kay...." and (to borrow a fave gag from Topless Robot) this happened.


How, by all that is holy, can Michael Bay remake "Rosemary's Baby"?

I've already gone on record predicting a "one hour sex in Hell "'dream sequence' ", but that still leaves a good 60 minutes of time to fill. What's he going to do with that? Where is the ROOM for explosions?

Not to mention, who would he cast? If the reports are true, we're lucky enough to be spared Megan Fox -- but that leaves so many bad casting choices.

Pacino's already played Satan. Nic Cage doing Elvis Satan? And will the baby shoot from Rosemary's belly in a stream of green slime and detonate to blow the world to apocalyptic smithereens?

IMDB news revealed that the idea was scrapped in 2008. So, why can't Michael Bay just let it DIE?

Update: Okay, so I did a bit more digging and found this story by Katey Rich over at Cinema Blend

She confirms the story and, while it turns out the film will be produced by Michael Bay's production company Platinum Dunes -- currently remaking several horror classics including "Nightmare on Elm Street", she's just as...horrified as I am.

I just don't think it's the kind of horrified Bay was looking for...

  1. Okay, Michael Bay remaking any movie, including "Rosemary's Baby" is a very bad idea.

  2. Uhm...Michael Bay's company Platinum Dunes did the remakes of Amityville Horror, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and, in April, A Nightmare on Elm Street. He does not direct, only produce. Why the fuck is this always news to people whenever Platinum Dunes remakes something
