Yet Another Unnecessary Remake!

If you love Sunset Boulevard with the great Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, you will hate this horrible news as much as I do. From Liz Smith: 

"OH! And this just came my way, speaking of David Fincher and Billy Wilder. There’s a rumor Fincher wants to be the man to update “Sunset Boulevard.” He is said to be “obsessed” with Billy Wilder’s great 1950 classic. And, it is also said he wants to use Vincente Minnelli’s abandoned mansion on Sunset and Crescent Drive as the house in which Norma Desmond weaves her fantasies. (Liza Minnelli still owns the place.)

Fincher, who directed a number of Madonna’s most famous videos, including “Vogue,” wouldn’t mind escorting her back to the big screen as Norma."

He should escort her OFF the big screen as Norma!
