Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladiesFarewell and adieu to you, ladies of SpainFor we’ve received orders to sail back to HollywoodAnd in a remake, see you again.
Pardon the poetry, but in odd times such as these, it feels like a fitting way to reveal the rumor that is spreading like wildfire across the Internet: Universal is supposedly remaking the 1975 ultimate summer blockbuster, Jaws.I would suggest taking this with a healthy dose of salt and then adding a bucket of chum to it for good measure, but it would appear that there is an ad in search of crewmembers for a Jaws reboot.Placed by “flickfolks” (always a reliable source, I’m sure) the spot placed on Mandy.com Monday reads:
We are seeking all crew positions for the upcoming Jaws reboot. We will need to build sets quite early therefore we will be hiring partially prior to the official pre-production. Please submit all job queries via flickfolks.com in the US Film Crew Section. Please leave a message there directly with the studio PM (production manager).
The start date is slated for January 15, 2015, which would proceed a five-month shoot in Hollywood.Take for this what you will, as there have been several false rumors spread of a Jaws remake over the years, including a poor attempt in the mid-2000s to suggest that James Cameron’s next film would be a Jaws redo. Also, considering that the original was shot in Martha’s Vineyard, and this supposed production call is aiming for strictly Hollywood, as well the lack of official announcements, I’m willing to call Tiger Shark on the whole thing.Then again, sharks are big this year. Between Sharknadotaking over the summer discussion and getting a sequel, as well as a phony Shark Week stories taking up national airtime, I suppose stranger things could happen.Though likely not this day.Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all news updates related to the world of geek.
