Why tamper with perfection? If you only made one truly great movie in your life, why would you go and destroy the memory? Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, The Wicker Tree is scheduled for release this year, and is a ‘reimagining’ of the Wicker Man by the same director, Robin Hardy. Christopher Lee is also involved and plays the part of ‘Old Man’, according to IMDB, which I hope doesn’t spoil the surprise too much!
I guess the Nicolas Cage movie left a bad taste on his mouth, and it had to be answered. Hopefully it will be a good movie, you never know I guess. Unlikely though!
