Hey, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, we all love Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and recognize it as the classic it is. But just because you have the ability to make and star in a remake doesn't mean you should. Just leave it alone.
Here's Robert Redford's opinion:
Asked about rumors that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck may be remaking "Butch Cassidy," Redford said he finds that "depressing."
"There is no shortage of good, original ideas, and there's just no point to remakes. Why do they have to mess with things that were perfect the first time around?" he said with a groan.
Amen brother, amen.
