HOLLYWOOD, CA — With all the reboots Hollywood has planned, and already produced, it seemed only a matter of time before the classics were dug up — literally.
Today, it was announced that Warner Brothers would release a reboot of “Gone With The Wind.”
However, unlike other reboots, this one would include one of the original stars, Vivian Leigh, reprising her role.
In January of 1940, “Gone With The Wind” stunned audiences around the world, with it’s story of love, loss and civil war. It won eight Academy Awards, and grossed $32 million in it’s initial release.
“We’re hoping the fact that we’re including a zombie will detract from the political incorrectness of the slavery backstory,” says producer Lang Parker.
Leigh passed away in July, 1967, from tuberculosis in England. However, in February 2015, with the help of fans, family, and a practiced Voodoo priest, she agreed to take on the role she is most known for.
Other stars approached for the classic’s reboot include Benedict Cumberbatch, for the role of Rhett and Oprah Winfrey for the role of Mammy. However, no word yet from either Cumberbatch, or Winfrey, if the roles were accepted.
When asked how she felt about the role, Leigh said, through an interpreter, “I hope I can remember how to look stunned and hurt. I mean, being dead, not a lot phases me anymore.”
Her acting coach, Damian Vanore, is working non stop with her on blocking, emoting and avoiding eating people on the set.
“That’s been the hardest part, to be honest,” says Vanore. “She’s newly risen, and hasn’t had much opportunity to acclimate to current society standards.”
Her training regime in this aspect involves feeding on the brains of movie reviewers, although Vanore assures us, “It’s usually only the ones who do nothing but tear apart a performance for shock value.”
