Die Hard ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
Some ideas are stupid. No, really, it isn’t about whether or not you like or dislike LGBT movies. I happen to like some that I’ve seen and support seeing more.
But give us original stories. Don’t take existing stories we loved, recast them with sexes swapped and call that creativity. That’s just lazy gender swapping.
An LGBT Die Hard remake seems horribly misguided. I mean, mad props to Charlize Theron who probably could pull off the acting chops with no problems, if the underlying story is lame then, nothing else matters.
As you may’ve seen, the idea of Theron tackling a female-driven riff on Die Hard gathered some buzz on social media earlier this week, and the 45 year-old was more than onboard with the idea. Not only that, but former New Girl star Hannah Simone also threw her hat into the ringCharlize Theron Supports Campaign For Her To Star In LGBT Die Hard Remake
Again, I’m all for an LGBT action film that explores new territory. We just don’t need to see a Diehard remake with the main characters sex changed. This is the kind of thinking that just loses again and again. Diehard wasn’t that long ago to even need a remake. And doing so without Bruce Willis as John McClane and Bonnie Bedelia as Holly would be silly.
There are so many, many great books that could be adapted into films. Some are very LGBT, so there’s your source material. Leave Diehard alone already. I’m tired of subpar Diehard sequels with Bruce Willis, why would I want to see Charlize Theron in the title role? You?
