Of course, this is only a rumor at this point, but is it one that we want to become a reality? Remakes have always been a part of the biz, there's no way around that, so the question becomes whether the remake can fly years later, and whether an actor can fill in the shoes. If anyone can pull off the innocently impish Hrundi, it's Sacha. But this definitely couldn't be a direct remake, because hippies and painted elephants just wouldn't make sense these days.
I'm thinking that it would retain some of the classic lines, but add a lot of political flavour -- a la Borat. But if that's the case -- couldn't he just make a whole new movie that is just loosely based on the original? The Party is a classic because of Sellers and its '60s strangeness. Is there any reason to stick to the original material, or should they just take the general idea and run with it? Or, do you love it so much that you can't bear the thought of a remake? Discuss.
