“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” is on a approach behind into a wording as Mary Poppins has been greenlit to make her approach into theaters again, though not everybody is happy about it.
The new Poppins film will take place 20 years after a classical 1964 “Mary Poppins” and be formed off of a Poppins tales from P.L. Travers’ children book series.
Of march vital adult to a classical film — that starred Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, grossed over $100 million, and warranted 5 Oscars — will be a daunting task.
“I consider it is a dear film that people watch over and over again so they are going to have to be unequivocally clever to get someone as charismatic as Julie Andrews was personification Mary Poppins,” Variety emissary editor Pat Saperstein told FOX411. “And to get songs that were as good as a strange movie, it’s going to take a lot of work.”
But Dan Gainor, VP of business and enlightenment for a Media Research Center, wonders given Hollywood is going behind to a “Poppins” good some-more than 50 years after a strange came out.
“Yes, Hollywood is a business. It’s still unpleasant for film fans to have to continue an unconstrained tide of large bill remakes that miss a skill, a behaving and a animation of a originals,” Gainor said. “Hollywood should find some new ideas and stop destroying aged ones.”
Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who worked on “Hairspray” and “Smash”, will harmonise new songs and a measure for a film. Rob Marshall ho has destined musicals like “Into a Woods” and “Chicago” — is set to direct, though so few sum of a prolongation have emerged.
“I consider during a time it was flattering groundbreaking given it incorporated animation into a film, and so it was substantially a small on-going for a time a approach it switched behind and onward between some animation and some live action,” Saperstein explained. “And afterwards only a peculiarity of a form of songs that they were means to write behind in a 60’s unequivocally hasn’t been seen since, anything like that.”
But Gainor for one is not awaiting much.
“Now remakes are mostly PC versions of a originals – like Ghostbusters, a Fantastic Four or Mad Max,” he said. “Even if a record is better, a promotion creates them roughly unwatchable.”
