    Jenny and its score aside, it was never really done justice. I always thought it would be perfect for someone like Paul Verhoeven who does social commentary through science fiction better than anybody (anybody still alive anyway!). I hear they are planning on using young cast too, which will at least capture its spirit better than 40y/o Michael York.

    After I resuscitate FELL (just a gentle joke here), I would have to ask why a remake? At the time, "Logan's Run" served as a well-needed portent; ditto "Soylent Green." Will that same message, no matter how good, be one that's already been said in various ways? That is not necessarily a deterrent. Perhaps I am reflecting a wish to see a film targeting an evil as yet not explored that we as citizens need to be aware of.



    Do you have any more details about the remake, DB7?



    Best,



    Barbara
