Magic 8-Ball Movie Remakes

I'm not making this up:  Paramount Pictures is working on making a movie based on the Magic 8 Ball. Yup...that little round fortune teller is getting a movie of his (or her) own. Apparently GI Joe was so successful they want to keep working with Mattel, and the Magic 8 Ball is the first thing that came to mind. (Read about it here.) Apparently they want it to be an action movie. Huh? I can't really imagine that. Instead I pondered what would happen if you remade some old movies, and included a Magic 8 Ball element.

Wizard of Oz

Dorothy and Toto have just been sent on their merry way, when they come to a fork in the yellow brick road. Dorothy: "Follow the yellow brick road... Well now which way do we go?" Scarecrow: That way is a very nice way..but that one is pleasant too. Perhaps we should consult the Magic 8 ball you have in your basket." Dorothy: Good idea! (Shakes ball, looks at it). "Reply hazy. Ask again later." --

Gone With The Wind

Scarlett: (upon hearing Rhett is leaving her) "Where shall I go? What shall I do? Will you ever come back?" Rhett: "Frankly my dear, "  shaking Magic 8 ball, "Don't count on it." --

The Graduate

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?" Mrs. Robinson: (puts down her glass of vodka and grabs the Magic 8 Ball) "Signs point to yes." Coming soon: Classic Movie Remakes, the Rubik's Cube versions.
