Will Smith to bring It Takes A Thief to the big screen

It Takes A ThiefThis is the type of news that makes me think a.) Hollywood doesn't know what its doing, b.) Producers have no imaginations, and c.) Big stars will do anything for a f***ing paycheck.

Will Smith, who did soooooo well bringing Wild, Wild West to the big screen a few years back, will take on the Robert Wagner role in an updated version of It Takes A Thief. Now, this was a very cool show. I loved it as a kid. But why do they insist on remaking these shows? It's not the premise/plot of a show that makes it great, it's the combination of a certain star at a certain time in TV history. (I've talked about this so many times on these pages I really don't have the energy to go into it anymore.)

I don't care who they have writing this or who they have directing it, I can tell you right now it's going to be lame. It has to be.

I would love to see this show on the big screen especially if they can find some way to bring Wagner himself back. He was just the epitome of cool in the late 60's and early 70's and the show was probably the best rpoduced of its time. Will Smith has the chops to do this well. Just PLEASE spend some money on a good script.

Was thinking the other day that two of the new series, "Heist" and "Thief" owe their genesis to "It Takes a Thief".

I'll see this movie, even if it is crappy.

Now, if they can just find someone as Susan St. James.
