High Plains Drifter To Be Remade



High Plains Drifter To Be Remade

You have just been hired by a Hollywood producer to pitch a modern-day version of High Plains Drifter. Who would play the characters? Where would you set the story? What plot changes would you make? Do you have a particular style in mind?

I would remake it with charlton heston playing Clint Eastwood's character if he is still alive. I would make Mordecai that little midget from Austin Powers. Or maybe Danny Devito ...

Clint Eastwood Would make the movie in Texas and I would show at the end of the movie who the drifter was. The audience would know that the drifter went back to get revengeon on the town as Jim Duncan.

Any true Eastwood fan would tell you that it would be sacreligious to even attempt to remake HPD! I would have to refuse the job.

first of all i would have kevin Cosner play Clint Eastwood's character, Danny Devito as Mordecia. At the end i would make it clear that Jim Dunkan was the drifter.

Since it's modern times, could you have Clint riding in to Lago on a horse? What about that angle? Is it still a Western or are you going to move the tale to New Jersey and use Tony Soprano as the Drifter? What about the women? Gonna update them?

I would keep the star as Clint
Eastwood and show the townspeople
at the end just who had the last
laugh at their expense.

I would cast Kevin Cosner as Clint Eastwood just because he's hot for an old guy. Then, I would definitly cast "Mini Me" from Austin Powers as Mordecai and someone like Pamela Anderson as Cally because in the movie, Cally is a hooch and Pamela would fit that part perfectly.

I would find someone of todays stature that people would recognize,and could also look the part. Someone like Kenny Rogers or Travis Trent.The location could be any small town in Arizona. You really would not need any horses because you can do the remake in modern times.

I would have it somewhat modern. It would have to be a small town but instead of riding in on a horse I would have the Rock driving in an old dusty Dodge pickup truck. They would still use the whips and we would have to find a midget to play Mordecai. Sally could be played by Ashley Judd.

It would be cool to do a remake now with Clint Eastwood as the star, but he's like 78 years old. This would surely slow down his draw time or maybe the cameras can make him look faster.

Hollywood Bob will need a fist full of dollars to remake this movie. I see Johnny Depp as the drifter, Paris Hilton as Callie, and Minnie Me as Mordecai.
