You Can Hardly Contain Your Excitement, Right?

It's time to remake all of Jerry Lewis' movies | Film | Newswire | The A.V. Club: "The Bellboy, Cinderfella, and The Family Jewels are now each in development as a “stand-alone comedy franchise” (because every movie is a franchise now), with each being handed over to a different “major comedy star” to make their own, and their success potentially setting up subsequent remake-cum-franchises for The Patsy, Who’s Minding The Store?, and The Errand Boy."

My first thought was, Kill Me Now. But then I thought, what does Paris have lined up after her new series finishes filming? She'd be perfect as The Bellboy!

Now that would be genius casting!

Sigh. (See comment in later space, too.)

Remember when they remade Jerry's (unreleased) "The Day the Clown Cried" and called it "Life Is Beautiful"?

There's precedent, baby!
