TGB Episode 30: Remaking the Right One (Guest: Matt Reeves)

October 7, 2010

Matt Reeves - The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by's own Alex and our very special guest: director Matt Reeves (of Cloverfield and Let Me In)! This episode doesn't have all of the same segments as normal, but the guys do start out going over their latest picks of the week, then jump right into the main discussion by talking about Hollywood's interested in remaking so many foreign films recently and the various motives behind those decisions. We then finish by asking Matt questions about his film Let Me In, which is currently playing in theaters. This is another one of those fantastic must-listen episodes!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Awesome insight from Reeves especially his decision to keep the kids the same age. Glad he stuck to his guns on that aspect of the remake. While I'm with you guys on a firm "no remakes" policy there have been a very few that have beat the odds (personal fav aside from Carpenter's "The Thing" is Snyder's "Dawn of the Dead"). Still I like what Matt says about how a director must be passionate about the project otherwise why make the story right? Great having him on. Looking forward to more from him (both in film and if he comes back to TGB). Well played guys!
