  1. This could work with a new story and without the principal characters, as in a period piece related to * part * of the story and without the actors who were working and filming many, many years ago. Otherwise, how could this work.

    Wasn't there a book AS TIME GOES BACK that was approved as a novel just a few years ago?

  4. This is a very bad idea, tho imho, nothing matches the Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher idea. Oy.

  5. It can't possibly be worse than the two TV remakes of "Casablanca" (the second one starred David Soul!), or even the coda that Warner Brothers wanted to add to the original movie, where Rick and Louis stormed ashore on the beach at Casablanca during the North African landings there. I mean it can't be, can it.......

    Yes, I have picked up a recent Ira Levin sequel - and the book AS TIME GOES... and seeing a few pages here and there I decided to pass on even buying it!
