Hi Bryan Here….

The Brothers Weinstein have tapped into remaking yet another classic.  This time it is the beloved Akira Kurosawa masterpiece “Seven Samurai” according to Variety.  Seven Samurai was a huge inspiration for several later films including “The Magnificent Seven”.  It seems that along with the Weinsteins, the Japanese Kurosawa production people will be producing the film as well.  But, it looks like this remake of “Seven Samurai” won’t feature any samurais at all and will be a modern tale of the original.

The director the Weinsteins have chosen is Scott Mann who recently made “The Tournament” which starred Robert Carlyle, Kelly Hu, and Ving Rhames.  Other than that, Mann has not done anything in feature films.  Per Variety: “In the “Seven Samurai” remake, a town in northern Thailand recruits seven paramilitary contractors from around the globe to defend it from attack.”

The writer of Young Guns, John Fusco has been hired to pen the script which he has been writing and fine tuning for over a year now.

Movie Quotes

Valerie Owens:
What would you have said to her?
Susanna Kaysen:
I don't know. That I was sorry. That I will never know what it was like to be her. But I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. You hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside.
Valerie Owens:
Susanna, it's all well and good to tell me all this; but you gotta tell some of this to your doctors.
Susanna Kaysen:
How the hell am I supposed to recover when I don't even understand my disease?
Valerie Owens:
But you do understand it. You spoke very clearly about it a second ago. But I think what you've gotta do is put it down. Put it away. Put it in your notebook, but get it out of yourself. Away so you can't curl up with it anymore.
Susanna Kaysen:
Lisa thinks it's a gift. That it lets you see the truth.
Valerie Owens:
Lisa's been here for 8 years.
Susanna Kaysen:
[crying] I'm so sorry. I was a bitch. I was a bitch.
Valerie Owens:
Don't drop anchor here, you understand?
Susanna Kaysen:
[narrating] When you don't want to feel, death can seem like a dream. But seeing death, really seeing it, makes dreaming about it fucking ridiculous. Maybe, there's a moment growing up when something peels back... Maybe, maybe, we look for secrets because we can't believe our minds...
[overlapping words]
Susanna Kaysen:
All I know is that I began to feel things again. Whatever I was, I knew there was only one way back to the world and that was to use the place to talk. So I saw the great and wonderful Dr. Wick three times a week and I let her hear every thought in my head.
