My understanding is that the idea was shopped around Hollywood for a while, but nobody could agree on how to do it. Considering how much Hollywood remakes tend to suck, I'm actually glad that they never got around to it.

Remakes of foreign movies have been okay of late. (The Departed, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) What they have in common is good source material and a good director. (Martin Scorcese and David Fincher, respectively.)

So I saw the multiplayer trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops II yesterday. Still hasn't made me start wanting it yet.

What if I told you that Price comes back to life and dies again and then comes back to life in the end

That would be great, because I totally even remember any of the characters names, because Black Ops had a great story that made all kinds of sense.

I'm actually still playing it, because it's the only game my friend and I are almost equally good at. MW3 didn't have vs. bots, so we never got into that.

I'll be happy if they can just get Sam Worthington to stick to one accent.

Let's just hope they make sure those assholes at Pi Studios who made Blowtorch & Corkscrew are not allowed anywhere near it.

And base the film off the New 52 Justice League origin. That would be an awesome film.
