What is this we hear about an “About Last Night …” remake?
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Hollywood must be dedicated to remaking every film released during the ‘70s and ‘80s. Up next? Look for a potential revival of the Row Lowe-Demi Moore romantic drama “About Last Night.”
EW.com is reporting that Screen Gems would like to blow the dust off of Ed Zwick’s nearly 25-year-old film about self-centered singles trying to make a relationship work.
The material easily could be updated to fit any generation. In fact, one could argue that the film already exists in countless other forms, just with different titles through the years.
But we’re at the very early stages of this game. EW says there’s “no script at this point, much less a pair of actors who have agreed to fill the roles of a young man and woman who are attempting to date despite their personal issues and disapproving friends.” They go so far as to suggest Mila Kunis and Chris Pine for the parts.
As for Lowe, he still holdsthe original film in high regard, telling EW, “It holds up really well. It had a great pedigree. It was a David Mamet play adaptation [of the 1974 work, Sexual Perversity in Chicago]. It also starred James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins, and it was funny and sexy.”
