Uncapie over at Ain't-It-Cool-News got a look at the "The Day the Earth Stood Still" script, a remake of the science-fiction classic starring Keanu Reeves in the title.
It would appear things aren't going so well for the film, being as Uncapie was so distraught over the script he threw it against the wall while reading it. You can check out the whole story here.
Here are some highlights:
A robot is in the film but its nothing like "Gort." It's called the "Totem" and apparently walks around on all fours, shoots a death-ray and stands upright like a totem pole when its finished. (LAME)
the immortal words, "Klaatu Barada Nicto" are never uttered. Ever
I had such high hopes for this remake. The original film is by far one of my favorite sci-fi flicks ever. This blows.
