That's good to hear, since both of these have been remade; SOUTH PACIFIC with Glenn Close and Harry Conick Jr. in 2001 and THE MUSIC MAN with Matthew Broderick in 2003.
GUYS & DOLLS is currently in development at Tri-Star, apparently, and BRIGADOON was remade for TV back in 1966 with Robert Goulet and Peter Falk.
Ugh. I tried to forget about SOUTH PACIFIC and THE MUSIC MAN being remade. Have not seen either remake, nor do I plan to. Matthew Broderick was okay in the remake of THE PRODUCERS, but him doing THE MUSIC MAN just makes me cringe.
That BRIGADOON casting is just plain sad!
Did not know about the plan to remake GUYS & DOLLS, but I hope it falls through. I can't think of any casting that would a. be reasonable. and b. compare to the original.
