    You made a dumb comment suggesting I actually thought Wheatley woke up one day deciding it would be a good idea to remake a Hitchcock movie and settled on Rebecca. I answered in kind.

    Today I saw the Netflix film Enola Holmes. I found it completely enjoyable.

    My point was that if Wheatley was remaking a flawed or lesser known Hitchcock, I would assume there was some artistic promise in it. When you're remaking a classic and not putting a different slant on it, it's probably just a cash-in.

    From every interview I've watched there's a greater emphasis on the book, not Hitchcock's film. As in, it's another adaption of the book. You keep talking as if it's a Hitchcock remake (hence why your suggestion that he do a different Hitchcock film is dumb) but if that's your logic, what does that make the 1979 and 1997 miniseries? Hitchcock remakes for television?

    You've also claimed that:
    But this interview seems to say the complete opposite:

    Right, because a director is really going to come out and just admit it was a project borne out of laziness or lack of ideas :rolleyes:

    You're being unreasonable for whatever reason, so I'll just drop it.
