J.J abrams the premier “pyrotechnician” of Hollywood as some might call him will no longer make remakes and reboots.
The main perpetrator behind some of Hollywood’s most successful popcorn-flicks has expressed his desire to do original work that could be remade and rebooted down the line after him.
At the Golden Globes last night, he revealed: “You know, I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten involved in things that I loved when I was a kid. In fact, even Westworld, which we’re here for tonight, is one of them. But I don’t feel any desire to do that again. I feel like I’ve done enough of that that I’m more excited about working on things that are original ideas that perhaps one day someone else will have to reboot.”
“You know, I do think that if you’re telling a story that is not moving anything forward, not introducing anything that’s relevant, that’s not creating a new mythology or an extension of it, then a complete remake of something feels like a mistake.”
Abrams is responsible for some the highest grossing movies in Hollywood history but has always been bashed by the critics for being “unoriginal” towing the age old formula of car crashes, car chases, detonations in the background and beautiful women shown as eye candy having no real background or underdeveloped story, strictly labeling him as a director who directs only to “entertain” and then make sequels and remakes living off of past glory.
