The Lack Of Original Ideas

Peter Jackson quoted in a recent interview for the Los Angeles Times:

I mean, personally I think that’s one of the most depressing things about the film industry generally today. The writers and directors should be blamed just as much as the studios because really everything seems to be a remake or adapting a 1970s TV show that was never particularly good… but at the same time I’m also aware that audiences are getting fed up with the lack of original ideas and original stories.

I hope that Jackson is correct in saying that the remakes and sequels are part of a cycle in Hollywood that will reverse it self and see a return to original ideas and films.

Wait a second, didn’t Peter Jackson do the third remake of King Kong (2005). It may have won 3 Oscars but it wasn’t exactly original.
