SNL Makes Trailer for Gritty “Bambi” Reboot with Dwayne Johnson as Bambi
If they can make a gritty Snow White remake, why not a gritty update for Bambi?
That’s what SNL was thinking lat night when they made a trailer for something that’s a Fast and Furious 7 meets a live action Bambi with The Rock wearing deer ears and a fur vest and Taran Killam in a muscle suit and bunny ears.
Yes, they have plenty of pun “kill lines” too.
Norman Lear Has Contemplated a Reboot of “All in the Family”
At 92 years old, the legendary Norman Lear may be bringing his transformative sitcom “All in the Family” back to television.
While being interviewed by Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, he revealed that he has toyed with the idea that a reboot of the show might center on a Latino family this time around. In fact, it was Sony Pictures TV that was asking about possibility of this All in the Family reboot happening with Lear.
While there are no more details as to how and when this would all happen if it were to even happen (Lear seemed to be leaning towards not making much more than conjecture), the thought of All in the Family and Norman Lear mixing in with the current crop of family sitcoms is an enticing one. Maybe he’ll talk about this a little more when he’s on Letterman tonight.
