Raiders of the Lost Ark, the first of the Indiana Jones trilogy, one of my favorite movie of all time. I like Indiana Jones mostly because, he’s not perfect, makes whole lots of mistakes though at the end he beats up all the baddies :)
The movie had quite a fan following allover the world, but some fans go that extra miles.
Three kids from Mississippi, 1982, created a shot-to-shot remake of the movie. twenty-one years later, their fan film creation has become an underground hit receiving attention from media elites such as CNN, Vanity Fair and even a nod from Steven Spielberg himself.
And now, in February of 2004, it was announced that producer Scott Rudin (Addams Family, School of Rock) purchased the rights to the untitled life story of the three Mississippi kids who remade Raiders of the Lost Ark over the course of 7 years. The film will chronicle the childhood adventures of Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb on their ultimate quest to remake the greatest film in cinema history.
Now apart from this adaptation, watch out for Indy 4, with Harrison Ford coming soon 2007 ;)
