This is equally as horrendous as The Karate Kid being remade. One of the best 80s classics, The NeverEnding Story is getting a remake!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers is responsible for the revamping, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way is also attached to remake the story with a modern spin. Leo, we’re not impressed!
The original movie was adapted from a German novel by Michael Ende. The new remake will reportedly delve a little deeper and take more details from the book that were apparently glossed over in the first film.
We guess this shouldn’t bother us too much. There was after all, a sequel in 1990 that did pretty well, and a third movie that ended up going straight to video. But this time they’re just trying to go back to square one and remake the original.
We can’t imagine a better Falkor than the original. Watch, Jaden Smith is going to scoop this role up too.
