Jesus wept: A remake of WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? is in development

I literally almost threw up reading this news article. Find out why below.

According to Variety, Lakeshore Entertainment has come on board to produce and finance a remake of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with Walter Hill sitting in the director’s chair.

Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will be producing along with the Aldrich Co.’s Adell Aldrich. The original production was directed and produced in 1962 by Adell Aldrich’s late father, Robert Aldrich, from a screenplay by Lukas Heller.

Walter Hill is a great American talent,” Rosenberg said. “His compelling vision has created a brilliant reimagining of this terrifying Gothic thriller.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? revolves around a decaying Hollywood mansion where Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister, Blanche, a movie queen from the ’30s, are forced into retirement after a crippling accident. The 1962 thriller starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as the sisters.

I saw this film as a kid and was terrified by Bette Davis’s performance. It seems that every film will be remade,rebooted,or reorganized in some way shape of form. I weep for our children.

    It’s actually been remade in the past, and has had constant rumours around it for years. It’ll get remade we’ll all say it’s crap and we’ll move on. I love the original Bette Davis is a legend, they will NEVER re-create the magic of that film, hell just the history and the real hatred between Davis and Crawford make everything about the original so intriguing. One of those magical moments in film history.
