The day the movies stood still

Just when you thought it was safe to leave the house...

We were the first ones to break the news that a Day the Earth Stood Still remake was on the way, and now we bring you the next bit of news related to the remake. The Matrix star Keanu Reeves has signed on to play Klaatu, the humanoid alien that lands on Earth. Production on the remake will likely begin in late fall this year or early 2008, meaning the expected release date of May 2008 is probably no longer true. Somewhat exciting news for this highly talked about remake, but is it the perfect choice?


KEANU REEVES?!!!

Keanu Just-Don't-Ask-Him-To-Talk Reeves?

Keannn....

no.

I just can't stand it any more.

Can't they get Michael Rennie back from the dead?

I just want to know two things:


Is there going to be a soundtrack featuring the theramin?
Because just what is the point of this film if not to showcase the theramin?

and, perhaps most importantly,

ARE THEY GOING TO TEACH KEANU REEVES TO TALK?!!

Urgh.

Why is the world so dumb?
