“Planes, Trains and Automobiles” Is Being Remade

People always complain when remakes are announced, but I think this one could work:  “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”. . . starring WILL SMITH and KEVIN HART.

The original came out in 1987 and starred STEVE MARTIN and JOHN CANDY as two guys forced to team up on a disastrous road trip to get to their respective homes in time for Thanksgiving.

Martin was pretty much the straight man, while Candy’s character was good-natured and well-meaning, but at the same time disaster-prone and a little annoying.  I think we can expect Kevin Hart in the John Candy role.
