"Always entranced by cinema."

We haven't had a new game for a while ... so how's about this:

Name a director. Then think of [but don't name] the most inappropriate title for a "re-imagining" or remake. Then add a VERY brief plot line and, perhaps, a quote for one of the characters.

First to guess goes next.

Here's one:

In Quentin Tarentino's version, a colorful cast of forest denizens carry out an acorn heist, until men with guns show up ... and things go very, very wrong. There's a certain amount of singing. And, at one point the disgruntled skunk says "Why am I Mr. Flower?"

And the title is ... ?

In James Cameron's movie rebooted, A man who is thought to be an assassin is secretly a teacher and his wife doesn't know it. She discovers his secret when she starts itching her scalp. They both get kidnapped by the kids and are in a desperate race to escape before they itch themselves to death. At one point the wife asks "Have you ever failed anyone?" and he replies "Yes. But their grades were bad!"

and the title is....?

OK

William Friedkin's tale follows a young woman waiting to blossom. She heads off to the Austrian alps, where she resides in an atmosphere of uncertainty and religion.

She's introduced to a man not dressed in normal clothing. His air of authority overwhelms her. She can't control her feelings and breaks out in song at the very drop of golden sun. She seems fine in the company of children until they become infected by an inexplicable condition causing everyone to spew green puke over everyone else.

By the end she does a complete about face and discovers who her real friends are.

And the title is ...

Almost ... I was thinking of The Sound of Exorcism.

Close enough, though - so bring on the next! Please.

Fred Zinnemann's re-imagined movie follows 2 moody senior citizen cowboys on a farm. They are in love with the same woman but it gets complicated when a dastardly ranch hand also vies for her affection. Every time someone tries to burst out in singing, the 2 tell them to shut up. A memorable line from a song : "Your doing pretty good. Just average. Oh shut the hell up!"

So Charlie Chaplin decides to step out of his comfort zone and visits a certain toy factory. "You're so has-been," says the developer. Charlie can't reply, but does a mime that makes him look like one of those robotic street statues.

Suddenly a Title Card appears that says "Change me from a has-been into a Hasbro." And then he picks up some of the toy cars and buses and trucks and tanks. He holds up a card that says "Tanks." And the developer says "You're welcome."

And then Charlie starts filming the toys and the vehicles grow to be metallic giants who lumber towards him and each other. But every time they come close, they skid on the banana peels that litter the ground.

Everyone laughs. And someone cries. "The End" says the card.
