Default Re: Should a new Popeye film see the light of day?

Considering audiences - and a large % of the Hype's-dislike of the Silver/Golden Age material-this would not succeed as a faithful adaptation. Instead, we'd have a super gritty reboot where Popeye would be played by Channing Tatum, Olive Oil by some Victoria's secret model, and the climax involving a military agency deploying a nuke and Popeye savagely killing his foe, who left him with no other option.

Passsss. I'll stick with the cartoons.

Life is one vile task after another.
