MANCHURIAN REMAKE
First I've heard of this: They're going to remake The Manchurian Candidate, and Meryl Streep going to reprise the Angela Lansbury role.

The original is one of my favorite old movies. Aspects of it are a bit heavy-handed and obvious, but overall, it's a fascinating film. In some ways, it prefigures the coming of more mature movies starting in the '70s.
