New Ed Wood Film

Plan 9 Teaser Trailer from Darkstone Entertainment on Vimeo.

A remake of Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space is in production. Above is the trailer, here is the movie's site. I got the link from an thread, Ed Wood Returns.

As Timbo points out a competent Ed Wood producing acceptable work is not Ed Wood. Ed Wood really cared about film and wanted to be a director. His desire and lack of skill made him an anti-hack. There are many people who can do good work but don't, they are hacks. The tragedy of Ed Wood is that he wanted to do good work but couldn't and didn't recognize when he didn't.

Utterly misses the point.

"Plan 9 From Outer Space" is a classic not because of the conventional wisdom of what makes movies good - story, acting, directing, etc. It's a movie that was "so bad it was good".

So doing a new version with well crafted cinematics, etc, TOTALLY MISSES THE CORE IDEA of that movie.
