JAWS Reboot In 3D Swimming Our Way?

JAWS Reboot In 3D Swimming Our Way?

The 3D news just does not stop!

Before I even begin to post this info on ComicBookMovie.com I must justify it's existence. I wouldn't want you CBM fans out there pulling your hair and screaming "But Jman Jaws isn't a Comic Book!" Oh yes, oh yes it is.

See and wait here's another one!

So see? Jaws news really is'nt out of the realm of Comic Books or the movies that follow them. Anyway back to the topic at hand. Cinema Blend reports that a unnamed source from Universal Studios is saying that plans to reboot Jaws and bring him or her (as the case may be) back to the big screen and in a 3D type of way.

Rumor is that Tracy Morgan is being considered for the role of Matt Hooper, portrayed brilliantly by Richard Dreyfus. Those are some large shoes to fill. Richard Dreyfus nailed that role and it will take some big acting chops from anyone else who attempts the Hooper role to do as good as Dreyfus did. If Universal remakes Jaws it can not be a comedy. That would kill it. The whole reason Jaws is scary is because you don't see it coming. Ask Sam Jackson how his experience with sharks go?

Could I see it? Yes. The technology has made leaps and bounds to be able to accurately portray Jaws in 3D today. Should it happen? Will audiences embrace Jaws the same way they did back in 75 when the original 'Jaws' became the first summer blockbuster? Who knows? They would need an all star cast but please leave the corn at home so its not too corny.

One thing is for sure, Universal knows it can improve the special effects to make Jaws more realistic, but is that really a reason to reboot a property?

So "Here's to swimming with bowlegged Women!!!"

Back then the tech wasnt there and they forgot to focus on a story. Now its almost a question of should a remake even go down?

3D blows

Dont mess with Jaws!
Show some creativity and do something original.
bleedthefreak - 2/9/2010, 1:15 PM
NO i love the original and the second, i wouldn't mind somehow a sequel but a complete remake kinda pisses me off we have lost so many great horror classics to shit remakes

I knew that Scene from Back to the Future pt. 2 would come true!
ElBicho - 2/9/2010, 1:20 PM
Dennis Quaid for Sheriff Brody!!!
jman1977 - 2/9/2010, 1:29 PM
ElBicho maybe! How about this one: Russell Crowe for Quint? Also he does not die at the end of the first movie, so guess what? Sequels!

Does Tracy Morgan do anything BUT comedy? They prob. will make it a silly comedy like that... part of the "reinventing" process.
danzag - 2/9/2010, 1:32 PM
Tracy Morgan is an unintelligible buffoon. He would turn it into a comedy much like Orlando Jones did to Primeval. If he gets ate in this version I might like it.
Ranger14 - 2/9/2010, 1:37 PM
3D or not, they can't touch the original and classic movie. Quit rebooting every great classic movie just because the writers and filmmakers aren't creative enough to come up with their own screenplays!
CorndogBurglar - 2/9/2010, 1:38 PM

there was already a jaws 4. this would be the 5th
CorndogBurglar - 2/9/2010, 1:38 PM
jaws 3 was great. it was really only the 4th one that sucked
DeathWalker - 2/9/2010, 1:55 PM
5 Jaws movies???????? Who knew??
BillyBlack - 2/9/2010, 2:14 PM
El Bicho

Are you talkin about Dennis Quaid reprising his role from Jaws 3 as Michael Brody and becoming the chief? That would be an interesting twist.
Phinehas - 2/9/2010, 2:14 PM
A movie that doesn't need to be made, and one with Tracy Morgan as a scientist is epic failure before launch!
Betty - 2/9/2010, 2:15 PM
I'm all for it. eloeloel!

MrJosh - 2/9/2010, 2:23 PM
come on y'all... there's gotta be pics of girls in 70's/80's style daisy dukes in the comment section here!
superdog - 2/9/2010, 2:23 PM
This will so fcking suck and I for one will not pay a dime to see it. This remake shit is getting ridiculous and I will no longer participate.......that being said if they did a true sequel with Dennis quad reprising the Brody son and becoming sheriff that is the only way I would see it.
superdog - 2/9/2010, 2:27 PM
Also technology would kill jaws a jaws movie. It was The lack of technology that made jaws so good. The fact that you COULDNT see the shark is what made it great. If they just do a cgi shark and show it all the time like in deep blue sea who cares? Weve already seen that and it's not as scary as seeing just that fcking fin coming right at you.
thwhtGuardian - 2/9/2010, 2:28 PM
I'd accept it with those addendums superdog.
And I'll add my own for good measure: it must be directed by Max Spielberg.

Heh heh heh, luv that GIF up top!!! ; D
WulfComicFan - 2/9/2010, 3:07 PM
As long as NO Tracy Morgan I'm good with it. Tracy Morgan is worse than unintelligble buffoon. He is plain stupid. He is NOT funny at all, and he is really bad at acting. Not to mention, I dont like racist a$$holes, and he is just that!
Betty - 2/9/2010, 3:15 PM
thwhtGuardian-- Call! Skippy!

ArmouredAvenger - 2/9/2010, 3:38 PM

airbeyonder18 - 2/9/2010, 4:03 PM

Azrael83 - 2/9/2010, 4:23 PM
no please. This is my favorite movie of all time and when I saw this headline I threw up in my mouth a bit.
KheshireKat - 2/9/2010, 4:25 PM
omg this movie was headed the way of epic flop b/c of the robotic shark. the malfunctions that plagued the shark prompted speilgburg and his editor to remove the shark for a ton of scenes. this movie works b/c of what it does to your imagination. u dont need a damn 3d shark swimming into the screen looking stupid and hookie. leave this one the way it is and find another movie to [frick]up.. i mean reboot.
ngu13 - 2/9/2010, 5:07 PM
leave jaws alone .... i remmember the bell and and the stupid girl swimming out....still dont like the water because of that...dont ruin it no reboot thier has been loads of shark films since then and they are all rubish
ASSASSIN666 - 2/9/2010, 5:27 PM
Why must all of our asses be f**ked with these f**king reboots? Did f**king hollywood run out of ideas? Why did they settle the writers strike? I'm so f**king tired of microwaved leftovers that hollywood is serving. What's next Godfather? Star Wars? Gone With the Wind? There's no respect for classics anymore. Hollywood has become a society of necrophiliacs that dig up all the classics and rape them when they are dead.
