Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Audiences can look for a new cycle of films in the months to come. However, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky advises things are likely to look familiar.
That's because much of the new product will consist of remakes of past movies. Some, such as "Robin Hood," are already on screen. Others, like "Private Benjamin will come around later.
But this is not new industry venture and Sokolsky points to a number of past venues, some successful, some not.
Industry leaders say they want to give audiences a chance to see past favorites remade with today's new technology..
But Sokolsky, among many other critics, wonders whether it is more of a budget cutting measure because so much of the advance work has already been done.
