Note: The number in parenthesis indicates the film's U.S. box office rank. Clearly there was demand for each of these films.
Valley Girl (#2492) -- The 1983 comedy was on no one's radar screen until it played last Sunday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. I'd say that's a fitting place for a movie like this to stay. Among the dead. Sure it's cute. And it'll feed into/off of the retro-irony fad that was so 2004 (Hollywood execs are late for everything, huh?). But if hair feathering comes back, I'm gonna know who to blame.
10 (#592) -- Before we get started, I'll bet you $100 (that's a full day's pay for a Temp) Megan Fox is cast in the role of Bo Derek. I'll give you odds. But the question remains, will the "Baywatch Generation" care about another slow motion bikini jog? I think that ship has sailed, no matter what Ms. Fox isn't wearing. Let's hope Bolero's "Ravel" doesn't get replace by something from Brian Austin Green's album One Stop Carnival.
Papillon (#938) -- From the looks of it, this project is more about finding a tax shelter than any interest in remaking a good movie. Variety reports that most of the film's financing is coming from high net-worth investors through the Canary Islands' RIC. Curious about the RIC, Temp X did a little research into it and learned the following, "The Special Economic & Fiscal Regime of the Canary Islands (REF), while not considered a 'tax haven' as it is governed by Spanish Legislation and fully authorized by the European Union, is the most favourable in Europe." Translation -- "It's a tax haven, but we need to call it something else." If you don't believe me, read it yourself.
