Endless Love is being remade at last

Alex Pettyfer will play David and Gabriella Wilde will play Jade.

Who will play Tommy C's character?

And who will sing a cover of the title song? Adele? Beyonce? Lana Del Rey?

How about Taylor Lautner? Just the one brief moment that Cruise had, in Daisy Dukes.

Alex Pettyfer = money in the bank!!!

Jesus H. Christ on a popsicle stick!!! Wasn't this movie awful enough in 1981? Awful. It was not even one of those movies that's so bad it's good. It just sucked!

by Anonymousreply 303/26/2013

And aren't they both 22 or 23? Aren't the characters supposed to be 17?

Someone named Shana Feste is directing.

I haven't seen the movie, but the novel is fantastic. Much darker than I had realized. (On the first page, the hero burns down the heroine's house.) It should be called Endless Obsession.

Poor, gorgeous Brooke couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag. This movie ended her career for a while and she was quickly shuttled off to college to major in French Lit or something.

But the film looks great.

Who'd Pettyfer blow to get this job?

Seriously, he's box-office poison and aquired a bad rep in record time.

The novel is a 20th century classic with one of the best closing paragraphs EVER.

by Anonymousreply 803/26/2013

So what's this closing paragraph r8?

by Anonymousreply 903/26/2013

"I am standing on a long, black stage, with a circle of light on me, which is my love for you, enduring. I have escaped--or been expelled-- from eternity and am back in time. But I step out once more to sing this aria, this confession, this testament without end. My arms open wide, not to embrace you but to embrace the world, the mystery we are caught in. There is no orchestra, no audience; it is an empty theater in the middle of the night and all the clocks in the world are ticking. And now for this last time, I don't mind, or even ask if it is madness: I see your face, I see you, you; I see you in every seat."

why not keep the original song. They are both still alive to sing it.

Wow r8 r10, that 's pretty good, obsessive stuff.

Selena Gomez and the Biebs will duet the theme song

R8, that's not even close to a great last paragraph. Sorry.

The novel was respected, they had the director of Romeo and Juliet, a sexy, young couple.

What went wrong. I just remember it was very flat. The last shot of Brooke going to visit the boy in the asylum was nice.

by Anonymousreply 1603/26/2013

I watched it again as I had not seen it since it was first released. First of all, Brooke was exquisite. And her acting wasn't nearly as bad as James Spader or Martin Hewitt. A remake could really play up the darkness and obsessiveness that was lacking in the original. It would make sense to have the lead characters older. In the original Jade is 15 and David is 17. That wouldn't fly nowadays.

by Anonymousreply 1703/28/2013

The book was so good. The movie was so awful.

What next? Alex Prettyfer is pretty, but I was way less than impressed with him in MM, the only thing I've seen him in.

by Anonymousreply 1803/28/2013

For a second there I thought you meant they were redoing "Making Love"! Now *that* I would see (particularly with Pettyfer as lead).

by Anonymousreply 1903/28/2013

Miss Coco Peru will play Tom's role (the producers want to butch up the role so he won't be mistaken for gay again this time)

by Anonymousreply 2003/28/2013

r17 - Yeah, there would be too much contro these days, even though in reality more 15 year olds are sexually active now than then.

Funny that Brooke actually was about 15 when this was filmed (even though the dude was in his 20s and looked it.)

I dunno about casting older: it's already a dopey enough concept; even sillier when it's 2 obviously grown adults acting it out.

by Anonymousreply 2103/28/2013

Two adults don't have any reason to be in the house, really. The central premise only works if they HAVE to be there.

by Anonymousreply 2203/28/2013

The sexually active 15 year olds today probably aren't fucking in front of their parents like they did in the movie. And these days you cant show underage nudity on film.

by Anonymousreply 2303/28/2013

Pettyfer makes no sense whatsover. He was the least interesting thing in MAGIC MIKE, his only real hit. And the character in ENDLESS LOVE is a high school student.

Hollywood is run by idiots.

by Anonymousreply 2403/28/2013

I'd rather have one of The Blue Lagoon. At least this one has room for improvement.

So would I, R27.

Finally, I've been waiting SO long for this remake. But now it's happening, and will spew forth into the world like a big, smelly, wet fart. Hallelujah!!!

I'd like to see Patrick Schwartzenegger in this movie, not Prettyfer.

by Anonymousreply 3003/29/2013

In the book the characters of David and Jade are 16 and 17 years old, respectively.

The book is interesting, but not as good as it gets made out to be. It's always been touted as a "love story" but really it's about a young man who attributes his serious mental illness to just being in "endless love."

The book is narrated by David Axlerod, a disturbed teenage boy who, when told he has to stay away from his cum bucket girlfriend (they rut like crazed weasels, contantly and furiously) for 30 days, becomes so unhinged that he sets her house on fire in a crazy attempt to worm his way back into the bosom of her family and his girlfriend's bed. As one critic commented, what David says sound perfectly reasonable and plausible...unti you think about it. He knows he behaves bizarrely and irrationally but thinks he does it because he's he's crazy but because truly, wildly in love and why should he ever want to change? Why, everyone in the world would want to feel the same way! So he thinks his behavior is a GOOD thing.

It's really a dark, unsettling tale. And the sex scenes are more unpleasant than erotic. One of them features David eating out Jade's pussy while she's having a very heavy period. Another one has Jade wanting David to fuck her in the ass (David declines because he thinks it will hurt her). The sex is also rather ridiculous; David and Jade are super duper sex machines who can rut for hours. Jade never gets sore or dry; she's always "wet as a river." David is hard all the time; in one instance after he COMES he still stays hard! The sex is so repetitive and ongoing that it gets boring very quickly. David and Jade should have gone into porno; they would have been perfect for that line of work.

The song was a hit TWICE.

When was the second time, R32?

by Anonymousreply 3303/31/2013

I hated the movie but decided to read the book, due to the remake. Thus far, it's a strange fucking book.

I can see why R31 found it distasteful, on several levels. But I'll finish the book before making a final call.

[quote]the sex scenes are more unpleasant than erotic. One of them features David eating out Jade's pussy while she's having a very heavy period.

There were numerous references to her period, her tampon and its string, etc. even before he ate her out--getting a blood clot in his mouth. (I don't think Scott Spencer intended it to be erotic, unless he's quite kinky.)

I got the point. He was so in love, or obsessed, with her that he did what not not one straight guy in a thousand would do.

It wasn't hot and, oddly, wasn't gross to read. The scene was peculiar but strangely touching, given that it was written from his disturbed point of view.

I saw this movie as a child and it freaked me the hell out and scarred me for life.

R29, so would I. But only if he uses the name Patrick Shriver.

I'll be playing myself. I still look young enough to portray a teenager, right?

I know the Kennedy men (and in Maria's case, Kennedy women) have an attraction to Hollywood, going all the way back to old Joe and Gloria Swanson.

But I can't imagine Maria ever allowing her boy to go near "Hollywood trash " especially after Taylor Lautner.

So what happened to the remake? Has it been made? Is it still in production? A film version of this book would not be easy to pull off, unless the director and writer had the courage to do it right. They would have to make it a tale about a very sick young man, not a gooey teenage love story. Jade, in particular, is not romantic heroine. She a very ordinary, not particularly likeable young lady; there's nothing interesting or exceptional about her at all. Which is evidence of David's mental illness; the object of his obsession is nothing special at all. Her uniqueness and irresistible desireablity are all in his head; it has no basis in reality.

Martin Hewitt was a sexy little thing. I love his face when he shoots his load into Brooke.

He's 55 now and runs a home inspection business in California. Still looks great.
