    I must say, I like the idea of Fassbender as Quint…

      I think he would do a wonderful job as usual. And I thought it uncanny that Adrien Brody has the same last name as the main character and looks eerily similar to Roy Scheider

    say it ain’t so…

  4. Sure. And while we’re at it why don’t we remake Star Wars, The Godfather, Casablanca and Gone With The Wind.

    They would start off with a supposedly good script and cast. Then by the time it was over Jaws would be a musical based in the year 3255 focusing around an extraterrestrial shark holding people hostage on Jupiter.

    While I am not a huge fan of Jaws overall (or Spielberg for that matter), I also do not think that remake could top what Spielberg did with the material. His direction is what makes the film work. A remake could be good, but it would require a director with a distinctive vision to try something different. And at that point, I wouldn’t consider it “Jaws” so much as another director’s own shark attack film.

  7. David Conrad says:

    Quint forbid the day. This is probably the first film I ever loved. It’s my mom’s favorite of all time, and she let me watch it from a young age. The alchemy of Shaw, Scheider, and Dreyfuss, not to mention Hamilton and Gary, is too perfect to alter. A remake is likely to suffer from the same lack of them that the sequels suffer.

    It’s eventually going to happen, and if you feel strongly against a remake here’s a novel idea….

    Just don’t go to the cinema and see it.

    …but you know you will when it happens
