Reboot it as a concentration camp. That'd be HILARIOUS.

Kanemano: why?


Because that's how old the people making decisions in Hollywood are. They expect us to remember their childhoods as fondly as they do.

Hey I'm that old but I don't need to see another replay.

Original ideas FTW.

Well played, subby.

There's absolutely no way this will work.  They can't (PC police) do it true to the original spirit.  If they change it up it is no longer HH anymore than I, Robot was Asimov's.

Who will play Major Hochstetter?

Kinnear was amazing in Auto Focus but I don't see him reprising the role. Or was that the joke?

This!

I don't really care who they cast as Hogan, Schultz, Klink LeBeau, Newkirk, Carter, Kinchloe, Burkhalter or any of the numerous pretty women who played as spies. It cannot be done. A movie would suck unless they can resurrect Bob Crane and turn it into some twisted sort of porno.

CSB, when I went to Germany I remember seeing 4 things on TV. They were:German dubbed versions of The Cosby Show, The Simpsons and Hogan's Heroes. The 4th thing I remember were pornographic commercials aired late at night.

Watching Hogan's Heroes dubbed with German voices was by far the most entertaining.

Germans may not be known for their sense of humor, but they can at least laugh at themselves.

MAD Magazine covered that with the zany antics of Hochmann's Heroes.

Willem Dafoe, except this time he makes Hogan touch his ass a lot.

Hogan's Heroes was pretty milquetoast.

I did this too, saw all of them auf Deutsch. In addition I saw "The Flintstones" aka "Die Familie Feuerstein " , which was the funniest. Friedrich Feuerstein would say "Ya Ya Ya" instead of "Yabba Dabba Doo".

jaytkay: Hogan's Heroes was pretty milquetoast.


The I, Robot line of thinking was probably not a good parallel, but it was the first thing I thought of where they used a name that had little to do with the source material.

I know it wasn't high art, but what was during the late 60's early 70's TV?  It was amusing to my 8 year old mind, but the idea of a comedy in a Nazi prison camp (even if not a concentration camp) would not fly today.

Fano: Isn't the world ready for the Day the Clown Cried?


I know I've read the synopsis of it, but I swear at one point there was a copy of the script on the net.  I guarantee that movie is (unintentionally) funnier than most JL movies.

Oh, yeah, the Nazi thing. I was thinking of the lack of sex or violence or real conflict when I said milquetoast.

I grew up on it, too, in my mind the characters aren't *those* Nazis.

Hogan's Heroes was already a ripoff; it was based on the movie Stalag 17.

And although we're now nearly 50 years farther away from WWII than we were when Hogan's Heroes was on the air, I wonder if anyone involved remembers a certain amount of shock and outrage when the Hogan's Heroes pilot came out -- "WHAT? You're filming a zany, madcap comedy about Allied POWs during WWII???" Imagine if someone piloted a zany, hilarious sitcom about, say, the first responders to the WTC on 9/11.

If you've never seen Stalag 17, I highly recommend it. The Allies don't have a secret underground lair to rival a Bond villain under their barracks, and the Germans running the concentration were not -- repeat NOT -- the goofy incompetent caricatures they were on the TV show.

The Allies in the movie lived on the razor's edge of detection and had massive cojones, and the Germans were every bit as nasty and ruthless as they were in Schindler's List.

Good movie.

Harold and Kumar already worked that angle but setting it in Abu Grahrib would be hilarious


Not really, would still be depressing and unnecessary

My dad was TV editor of a newspaper at the time. He died 10 years ago, and now I really want to ask him about the reaction. Dammit!

Bring back F-Troop. I'm sure the native americans won't mind.
 
2013-03-18 10:30:52 PM
This is another example of Baby Boomers wanting to make a movie based on a favorite TV show without thinking that no one else really cares.  Stick with the reruns on TVLand.
 
2013-03-18 10:32:56 PM
Dammit! My friend and I have dreamed of doing this for years and often spend idle time casting it. The hardest part was casting Klink. We had decided on William Hurt before Chris Waltz got famous.

I think Mel Brooks said there was no chance in hell Blazing Saddles would get made today.

He's right.  All in the Family wouldn't get made today.  Hell, The Jefferson's probably wouldn't even be okay.

I'd like to see Chris Pine in the role of Hogan.

I caught an episode of Good Times the other day where James says to an upper-class couple {sarcastically): "Don't y'all know? There's n---ers up in here!" Totally floored me that it wasn't cut out for modern audiences.

Kate Upton.

TBH, I don't give a fark if she can act or not, I just want to see her naked while she's faking a German accent.
