To certain degree, it's business. I doubted Roman Polanski would've done the original one for free. I doubted Bay is speaking of cinema from the angle which you're referring to.Nowhere does he mention why he wants to remake Rosemary's Baby, a classic at the time of its release. All he can do is talk money. Cinema is an art, and I'm sorry some of us feel that way, but there it is. Good cinema is priceless.
There's a place and a time for everything. There's a place for art house and then there's a place for entertainment cinema. Comparing Playboy to movies is ridiculous.Bay is talking about exploitation, making money from the largest amount of people possible. Honestly, if that's his game, then he's no better than Hugh Hefner.
That's there more important things to worry about than a movie remake?Btw, he's entitled to have a personal opinion about Iraq, but I have no idea why he mentioned it. And what the hell it has to do with cinema?!!!
