The Longer-Longest Yard?

Paramount Measures The Longest Yard Remake Source: Variety Tuesday, July 22, 2003

Paramount has set up a remake of The Longest Yard, the 1974 Burt Reynolds comedy drama, at Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions and is seeking a writer on the project.

The studio plans to adhere to the basic storyline of the original, in which Reynolds portrayed retired pro football quarterback Paul Crewe, who is sent to prison and forced by a sadistic warden to lead a team of inmates against a team of guards.

Plans for the remake call for boosting the comedy angles, bringing in contemporary elements such as the Internet and possibly partnering with MTV Films with an eye to casting urban music stars.


not too sure on this one....that's a classic they're messing with...

Ya scared me. Thought you might be peaking in on my shower.... :-o Really dreading the thought of a remake of this classic. Then again I have feared Spike Lee would do a remake with Will Smith as Paul Crewe....

Why not. I mean some genius thought Will Smith would make a good choice for James "Wild, Wild, West" West.

My prediction?
"... a band of ragtag cons with nothing to lose.
A warden - out of control.
It's 4th and long in the prison yard.
CarrotTop is ... Paul Crewe".

Guy Ritchie made a remake of the longest yard a few years ago but it was tied to football(soccer for us north americans) called Mean Machine and it was a pretty good movie but I am not sure about this!!!
