Nearly everything in Hollywood is a remake of a nostalgic classic or a book adaptation these days. Filmmakers haven’t mined the ranks of YouTube yet, but there’s plenty of untapped potential as far as viral videos are concerned. We say this jokingly, although it doesn’t seem terribly far-fetched — especially since Jimmy Kimmel recently gave a few viral vids a Hollywood makeover.
How long will it be before we see Chris and Liam Hemsworth starring alongside Meryl Streep in Bitman Begins? YouTube favorite “Charlie Bit My Finger” was the inspiration behind the moody Nolan-inspired spoof. Then there’s Ameowdeus (a play on the amazing 1984 Miloš Forman film), which is a surreal twist on Keyboard Cat, Hamster on a Piano and Dramatic Chipmunk. Hell yes, we’d watch Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Ben Kingsley, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin in period costume, marveling at ovesized critters, entranced by a garish synth track. Can this please be a thing now?
