I'm a fan of the original, so I was excited to hear that there was a remake in the works. Then I heard Nickolodean is behind it (I hate Nick) and that it was going to be live-action. So sad we can't get another hand-drawn animated film in theaters. Then I saw the cast. It looks like the casting is based on who's popular rather than who's suitable for the roles. Dakota Fanning is cast as Fern probably because the producers don't know of any other child actresses. And what the hell is Andre Benjamin doing here?
I'm excited and I'm worried about this film.
Thoughts? Opinions? Any fans of the original? Anyone else think it's odd to see Oprah Winfrey and Andre Benjamin in the same film?
