Good Idea/Bad Idea – July 13, 2011

It’s time for another good idea/bad idea.

Good idea: Casting Edward Norton in anything. The “Greatest Actor of his Generation” has been cast in the upcoming Bourne free Bourne movie The Bourne Legacy. He will play the villian to Jermey Renner’s good guy.
Bad idea: Casting Norton is never a bad idea, but the last time he played a villian it was in The Italian Job, and that wasn’t a good movie. Source

Good idea: Making a movie. We like movies.
Bad idea: Making a movie with Vin Diesel, especially when the script is from Unknown writers Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell. Unknown had a terrible story, and Fast and the Furious Five aside recent Vin Diesel films have been dreadful. Source

Good idea: Getting Chris Pine as the face of your franchise. The man who rebooted James T. Kirk is set to star in MGM’s remake of RoboCop.
Bad idea: Remaking RoboCop. The original is a classic, the sequels were rubbish, and this has a whiff of Terminator Salvation about it so no thanks. Source
