The SMITH FAMILY ROBINSONS?

It's a hard story to stomach but when it's from Production Weekly, an industry source, we have to give at least some legitmacy to it. According to the site... Will Smith, his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and their three kids Willow, Trey and Jaden will make-up the cast of THE ROBINSONS. The movie would be a remake of THE SWISS FAMILY ROBINSONS, a 1960 Walt Disney movie about a shipwrecked family building an island home. smithfamily If the film goes ahead it would be one of the more obvious meta-films in the history of cinema. Though the whole idea of such a personal film that they could play every Christmas in their own household, does remind me of the same kind of self-gloating that comes with a photographed family festive card staged in front of a big Christmas tree and open fire. The film probably came about when Will Smith and family were watching the original at home and thought "wouldn't it be fun to remake that as a family, we could get together, film it, and wouldn't it be a great present for our Auntie". The same thing happened with THE KARATE KID and the new remake at Columbia produced by Smith that will star his son Jaden and Jackie Chan in the role of Mr. Miyagi. As I said before, let's just hope they aren't watching t.v. when CITIZEN KANE, THE GODFATHER or CASABLANCA comes on. via - /film
