Gore Verbinski Does It With A Candlestick For New ‘Clue’ Movie


It’s one thing to remake a lesser film like Michael Caine’s Get Carter or Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, but Hollywood has gone too far now… they’re remaking the 1985 classic Martin Mull film Clue!

I kid of course.  Except for the part about remaking Clue.

Gore Verbinski has signed on (per Variety) to direct a new cinematic incarnation of the board game for Universal.  Not content to simply rehash the campy take of the previous film, or apparently the actual content of the game itself, Verbinksi’s film will be turned into “a global thriller and transmedia event that uses deductive reasoning as its storytelling engine.”

Do you even care?
