Jaws posterWith Hollywood still giddy with excitement about discovering how, like, totally awesome 3D is, we can now only wait until they begin to rehash every classic film ever made to incorporate the new technology. You can bet that soon we'll be cowering from a giant snow globe rolling towards us in Citizen Kane 3D or dodging Rick Blaine's cigarette in Casa-3D-Blanca.

Until that time, we'll have to deal with the all too real news coming from cinemablend.com that Steven Spielberg's epic monster movie, Jaws, may be the next big movie to get the funny glasses treatment.

We, for one, are not that excited at the prospect. What made Jaws great of course was the first part of the film where the shark was an unseen terror lurking only in the imagination of the audience. Of course, hinting at something in 3D is hard to do, so expect this to be more of a Deep Blue Sea remake with the Jaws name.

Cop Out's Tracy Morgan is rumoured to be considered for the Richard Dreyfuss role, and when MTV asked him about it he was a little coy, saying only: "I would love to do a Jaws movie, that was a great franchise." By describing it as a great franchise, we can only assume he's never seen any of the sequels. The third of which of course was released as a (really awful) 3D film.

Richard Dreyfuss himself is soon to be seen in the upcoming Piranah 3-D and has proved that it wasn't safe to go back in the water by his appearance in the risible Poseidon remake.

This is still very firmly just a rumour and many people will be hoping it stays that way. There's nothing wrong with the idea of a modern 3D shark film (the more we think about it...) but what do you reckon? Is it sacrilege to even think about remaking Jaws, or are you ready for another trip out on the Orca?

To help you make your decision, enjoy the original Jaws trailer...
