I predict a "remake" in the form of a movie musical in 2015. American cast playing Australian.
Australian actors with American accents playing Australians.
I''ve predicted this too, OP, but on Broadway.
No need for a remake: the original is perfect but it belongs to another time.
I always thought that it was odd that no one noticed Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce had facial wasting. It was very noticable on Hugo.
R2, you should sell that idea to Bette Midler.
"American cast playing Australian."
Like Thorn Birds.
Speaking of ... how many people do you suppose realized that the ladies on the bus in that Coca Cola Superbowl commercial were men? Not too many, I suspect.
It really does belong to another time, as r3 said. It's very, very dated.
Doesn't translate well to the 21st Century.
Does it need to R8?
It's a classic gay movie. Perhaps the most famous, mainstream and sucessful of all gay movies.
It's already a Broadway musical!
I didn't see the Coke commercial.

I saw the movie two days ago, R4. Hugo weaving has a weird face and Guy Pierce had none in the movie. Besides, what is your fucking obsession with facial wasting? Projecting to make yourself feel better? Love yourself. Worry about your own face.
Maybe Nick Adams will reprise his Broadway role...
Will I be too old for the Terence Stamp part? I still have my Edna Turnblad heels.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
