The latest news is that a remake of early 90’s classic, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead is on the way with the producer Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan, 2012, and loads more) set to helm it’s revival. All this comes from Pajiba.com.
If you missed it, you can check out HeyUGuys Mouth Off Podcast episode 11 where we got to speak with one of the main cast member of Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, Keith Coogan (Kenny) where he talks about what it was like working in the movie.
It’s rather an odd one this as I was talking with a friend about this movie just a couple of days ago with her favourite line from the movie being:
“I’m right on top of that rose”
And the ultimate line delivered when asked to do the dishes, Sue Ellen to Kenny who shoots the plates with a shotgun off the roof of is house:
The dishes are done!
If you’re unfamiliar with the movie, it’s stars Christina Applegate, Keith Coogan, Danielle Harris, Joanna Cassidy and a very young looking David Duchovny. It’s story revolves around a group of sibling’s whose mother has to leave them on their own for a few weeks over the summer holidays while she’s out of town. At least they think they’re on they’re own, only to discover that actually, their mother has arranged a babysitter from hell! One day into what seems like a life sentence, the babysitter dies and the kids have a dilemma, do they tell their mother who’ll come home and wreck their summer, or do they blag it and fend for themselves! I’ll let you guess the answer to that one!
We’ll obviously bring you more information as we get it but what do you think about this news? Personally, I can’t see a remake of this movie happening but then, I would have said The Karate Kid would be left untouched too! Tell us in the comments below.
