Michael Bay Pitches Rosemary's Baby Remake

Michael Bay and Co. to Remake Everything Scary Ever


Most of you were irritated to learn that Michael Bay is planning on remaking Wes Craven’s 1984 film A Nightmare on Elm Street and another '80s horror classic, Friday the 13th. Bay's production company also has plans to remake Near Dark and The Birds and has already produced mostly forgettable remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, and The Hitcher.

Now there is news that Bay's production company is trying to work out a deal to develop the Ira Levin novel Rosemary's Baby into a new film. Of course, that was already done in 1968 by director Roman Polanski and is considered a classic. The fairly disturbing film wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but the way Polanski tackled unnerving subject matter earned him an Oscar nod. Somehow I doubt Bay's production will yield similar critical acclaim.

Bay certainly seems to have cornered the scary-remake market, but tell me: Do you actually care? Do you have faith in any of these remakes, or do you just wish Bay would give the whole thing a rest?

Michael Bay is a freaking idiot,period.Somebody,please stop this moron from ruining any more classic films!!As I've said before,this is simply further proof that there is little writing talent in Hollywood these days,so these brain-dead bastards keep rehashing movies that should be left alone.Would anyone pay to see some joker's "repainting" of the Mona Lisa,or Van Gogh's Starry Night? I doubt it.So why do folks pay to see this kind of crap? Bay is a talentless hack and I wish he'd go away.

I have the feeling this new Rosemary's Baby won't be any good. Why not actually come up with an original idea? This is why I stick to mostly indie, foreign and older movies.

This artwork only supports the argument I have been making for years - Michael Bay is the devil.

I totally agree with tiabia about Bay having too much money and time on his hands. However, I sort of treat him with a live and let live perspective. I don't particularly care about much of what he does and the horror genre isn't a favorite of mine. But for those who love and adore the classics, I can see how it would be really annoying!

I love all the originals and I just don't see any of the remakes living up to the real thing.

I don't know who Michael Bay is, but I've been wanting a remake of Rosemary's Baby for years!

Michael Bay clearly has too much money and too much time...which is unfortunate because money like that should be in the hands of some one with a lot more vision and originality and the ability to be a risk taker, not a freakin' rehasher!!!

Why is he doing this?! Does he not have any original ideas at all?
