If it were April Fool's Day I would believe the story I've just read online American director to remake House of Cards .
Not only is director Fincher going to attempt to remake a series that was well nigh flawless, but he is also going to set in the US. And even more unimaginable - if the stories are to believed - he is making it as a one-hour drama.
He might very well think it's a good idea, but I've yet to come across a remake of any contemporary drama that has come close to being anywhere as good as the original.
Me thinks there will be great rumblings under the foundations of the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford where Ian's ashes have been placed.
If anyone wants to see House of Cards - in America or anywhere else - I suggest they stick to the original!
