Variety are reporting that Jennifer Connelly has signed on to star in the 1951 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Connelly will be joining Keanu Reeves in the story of aliens coming to earth and delivering a message. Live in peace or be destroyed.
Sounds fun. I have not seen the 1951 film, like most of the population under the age of 25, so this news doesn’t fill me with any emotion whatsoever. I just know Connelly is a good actress and Reeves will probably do the film justice…whatever it involves. I wonder how they will modernize it so it doesn’t come off cheesy. I mean the aliens don’t really need to come and tell them, just communicate with their advanced technology. Or will it be like Armageddon where they randomly appear and destroy things. I also don’t get what the aliens are saying, because they are sending mixed signals. Its like telling a murderer to stop murdering or else you will kill them.
I will have to wait and see, or if anyone can explain it too me I would appreciate it!
As with most movies, it will start filming next month and is directed by Scott Derrickson. By that I dont mean Derrickson directed most movies, I mean because of the strike and everything.
Bah! Its late and I am tired so here is a picture of Jennifer Connelly herself. Enjoy!
