CHIP's Remake

Swell. Huge surprise here. Yet another re-make of a cheesy 70's television show. To make matters worse, Wilmer Valderrama will be playing the role of "Ponch" which was made famous by Erik Estrada. Like he needs his ego to get any bigger.
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Wilmer Valderrama who plays Fez on "That '70s Show," will star as motorcycle cop Ponch in a big-screen version of "CHiPs."

Warner Bros. Pictures, which recently brought TV staples "Starsky & Hutch" and "The Dukes of Hazzard" to theaters with much success, has just acquired the rights for the series.

I wish I could be surprised or disappointed...but I'm not. As long as these remakes make even a slight amount of money, it seems like we're doomed to have every TV show in the last thirty years made into a lame movie that destroys our beloved memories and replaces them with pseudo-celebrities and flashy special effects. Then again, the Addams Family and the Brady Bunch Movie were great, so who knows.
