Looks like a straight rip-off.

I totally agree. What is it with Colin Farrell and remakes?  Fright Night, Total Recall and now The Beguiled.  :o


I admire him as an actor in films like In Bruges but sadly I can't see him bringing anything new to the role of McBurney in this one. :(

Farrell is typecast as a re-maker.

   Even Pamelyn Ferdin must be laughing at this dopey remake. I've found Coppola's movies to be a great cure for insomnia, especially the overrated 'Lost In Translation'.

Maybe the novel will be reprinted for this. I'd really like to read it.
And it is going to happen. You can preorder the movie tie-in edition on Amazon now.

I'm more interested in reading it and comparing it to the original movie than the new one.

Hopefully it might lead some younger audience to go back and investigate Siegel  and Eastwood's masterful original..
