Cameron Crowe and John Cusack Slam Proposed Say Anything TV Remake
On Monday, it was reported that NBC bought a script tied to the classic movie, starring Cusack and Ione Skye, that would take place 10 years after the film’s events.
Crowe took to Twitter later to blast the potential remake, writing, “Regarding the announcement of a “Say Anything” tv show… @JohnCusack, @IoneSkye1 and I have no involvement… except in trying to stop it.”
“Amen @CameronCrowe @IoneSkye1,” Cusack replied to the tweet.
When a fan asked Cusack if he was involved in the sequel, the actor said, “Hell no!!” adding, “No end to the exploitation of other people’s sincere efforts in shameless slime.”
Say Anything told the romantic story of the relationship that developed between an average student Lloyd Dobler (Cusack) and class valedictorian Diane Court (Skye) after their high school graduation.
Since the outrage, NBC and 20th Century Fox have said they will no longer move forward with the project.
What do you think of Crowe and Cusack’s boycott of the TV remake?
