An even Meaner Machine?

They’ve already remade it once [“Mean Machine” starring Vinnie Jones] and now the 1974 Burt Reynolds comedy drama “The Longest Yard” is set to get the remake treatment a second time round. This time, it’s pretty safe to say it’s going to be a tad different, especially with Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison productions behind the proposal. According to Variety, The studio plans to adhere to the basic storyline of the original, in which Reynolds portrayed retired pro football quarterback Paul Crewe, who is sent to prison and forced by a sadistic warden to lead a team of inmates against a team of guards. Plans for the remake call for boosting the comedy angles, bringing in contemporary elements such as the Internet and possibly partnering with MTV Films with an eye to casting urban music stars. Be interesting to see whether Sandler takes the lead.
