UNIVERSAL LOOKING INTO A NEW ‘JAWS 3-D’?

Ok…what?  I’m fairly certain there was ALREADY a JAWS 3-D flick, but with the added popularity of AVATAR in 3-D, among many others, it seems that UNIVERSAL has decided to jump on the bandwagon.  In a way, if done correctly (for example, if JAMES CAMERON did it), this could be interesting.  Right now, this seems to be a rumor, but here’s the beef from Cinema Blend:

A source of ours over at Universal Pictures says the studio is strongly considering a remake of the summer blockbuster in hopes of dazzling younger audiences with new special effects. Their claim is that people now expect more, visually, from their film-going experience. So, Hollywood studios are inclined to take some of their tried and true franchise names like Jaws and bring them into the 3D world.

Our insider says Tracy Morgan was at one point being considered for the part of Matt Hooper, previously played by Richard Dreyfuss. While it’s uncertain whether that’s still the plan, it does indicate that they seem to be taking a more comedic direction with the part.

This is just a rumor, from a source we’ve spoken with, but never used before. We’re working on some sort of official confirmation. In the meantime file this under gossip which, let’s face it, isn’t hard to believe. Universal already busted out a few laughable Jaws sequels in the 80’s. They even tried their hand at a 3-D version of the shark with 1983’s Jaws 3-D. It only makes sense to come back to the idea now that they have the technology to do it right.

Wait, WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?! TRACY FUCKING MORGAN?!?!?!?!  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!111!1!!!!1!  Ah fuck, you remember all that I said about the potential awesomeness?  Yeah, out the fucking window.  It also makes me think this HAS to be a rumor.  PLEASE let it be a rumor if they’re looking at that kind of casting.
