Weekend at Bernie's 3!!
Remember Weekend at Bernie's? Yeah, I do too, and looking back on it I don't know why I watched it or the terrible sequel, okay it was fun at the time. Well there's a sequel to them all in the works, yes a Weekend at Bernie's 3, or for those Spectrum fans out there, Bernie goes skiing.
Howso? Well the film is going to be set on a ski resort, I would guess that's how they've managed to keep him frozen for so long, all that ice.
The man who is behind the film is producer Ashok Amritaj, and the big warning flashing light is that he's the guy making the new Street Fighter film.
If you aren't aware of the story, these guys find the local rich party guy dead, and use his dead body and cash in on his popularity to be popular themselves. They pretend he's still alive you see, and carry him around, drive him, prop him up, and the scenes get more and more ridiculous. Then the hit men who killed Bernie, or so they thought, return to try and do the job right.
I wonder if Andrew McCarthy will make a big screen comeback for this role? He could play Bernie, that would be a nice move!
The story comes from Clint over at Moviehole, and I can't help but feeling as depressed and cynical as he sounds. It's dreadful. What the hell is Hollywood thinking. I guess the bigger question to ask is how these films are still earning enough money for Hollywood to make them?!
