‘Clue’ is Next Up on The Hollywood Remake Conveyor Belt

- Advertisement -

Clue, the 1985 cult-classic which managed to wonderfully adapt a board game to the big screen, is getting the remake treatment. Something tells me it won’t be as magical this time around.

The Tracking Board broke the news, saying the one-time Universal project has moved to 20th Century Fox (yikes) and Hasbro Studios will produce.

The original starred Tim Curry as the butler/emcee, with Christopher Lloyd (Professor Plum), Madeline Kahn (Mrs. White), Michael McKean (Mr. Green), Martin Mull (Colonel Mustard), Eileen Brennan (Mrs. Peacock), and Lesley Ann Warren (Miss Scarlet) filling out the game pieces.

And this Clue remake has been fumbling about tinseltown for several years now, originally slated for a 2011 remake before that fell through. But, despite the obvious brand attached to the board game and the steady following of the original film, does anyone play the Clue board game anymore? The film pops up on TV from time to time, and is a pitch-perfect comedy with multiple endings to pay service to the game itself. But despite all that, the film wasn’t a box-office smash. The audience seems small, niche, and as much as the original film was ahead of its time this remake feels like it will be a few years too late.
