Taxi Driver to be remade?
According to Copenhagen film magazine Ekko, Martin Scorsese is apparently discussing the possibility of remaking Taxi Driver.
That’s right, Taxi Driver, the film with Robert De Niro as the anti-hero who saves Jodie Foster, very violently. I believe that crackle.com was showing this film for free last summer, and that’s when I first saw it. Honestly, I see no reason to do it any more than redoing the first Star Wars movie. I mean, I don’t see much wrong with it.
According to Ekko, there isn’t any word if Taxi Driver will be a sequel or remake, but it might be done by Danish Director Lars von Trier, who gave us Antichrist.
I can’t help but wonder if this rumor is true, and honestly, I hope that it isn’t.
