In 1997, Will Smith’s star was on the rise, when along came a film that paired his unique charm with the dry delivery of a master in Tommy Lee Jones. J and K are secret agents dealing with maintaining the underground movement of aliens, keeping safe and secure from us while protecting the planet from them. When a visitor from another planet lands and threatens to destroy Earth, it is up to these two to neuralize the problem and save us all.
Take a listen as Aaron, Scott and Zack take a flashy thingy to the original classic, put their heads together and try to craft their own reboot of one of our all-time favorite films. It’s time to Remake Men In Black RIGHT!
Clips selected from the 1997 film, Men In Black.

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!
