In 1993, Harrison Ford adapted David Janssen’s classic role as “The Fugitive” by assuming the role of wrongly convicted Dr. Richard Kimble, who was pursued by US Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) as he chased down the one-armed man who killed his wife. The film was based on the 1960’s TV series, yet managed to create a world all of its own, as director Andrew Davis gave us a breathless cat-and-mouse suspense film.
As the producers are working hard on updating the concept for a modern era, the opportunity is perfect to craft an updated version of “The Fugitive”, only this time we’ve added a modern twist. It’s time to Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Clips selected from the 1993 film ‘The Fugitive’.

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-monthly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
