What Is Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie’s Collaboration on a Classic Remake?October 18, 2023 By Admin
Classic films are frequently seen as archaic and amusing. Interactions are frequently confined by the fashion of the day, and connections feel forced and out of date. This is not true of The Thin Man. Now, two of Hollywood’s biggest personalities are teaming up to reimagine an unforgettable classic.
Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie are attempting to restart a film series by combining the powers of their respective production businesses. But, with the project still in its early phases, what should we know and what can we anticipate from this epic collaboration?
What Exactly Is The Thin Man?
In 1934, The Thin Man was released. This is especially essential to remember because it was created prior to the implementation of the Hays Code. [Get ready for a quick history lesson]. The Hays Code was a self-imposed code of behavior formed by the film industry that prohibited various activities and sanitized films for decades. This included no cursing, sex or sexual perversions, drugs, nudity, or (for amusement) portrayals of “white slavery.” [Lesson over] Although The Thin Man did not have many of them, it gives the picture a much more relaxed atmosphere that does not match the paradigm of what we commonly think of as “the classics.”
The film follows Nick Charles, a former private investigator and the husband of Nora Charles, a wealthy heiress. Nick threw up his investigation company when they married to live a life of luxury with Nora. They’re madly in love, and their clever banter keeps things fresh. They arrive in New York for Christmas after traveling by rail from their home in San Francisco.
A missing person’s case forces Nick to return to his former career, and Nora is overjoyed to see him in action. As the two examine the missing person’s case, they discover a web of intrigue underneath the surface. Family secrets are revealed, bodies are discovered, and riches are lost. Fortunately, none of them belonged to Charles. Even as the atrocities pile up, Nick and Nora give comedic relief throughout the film.
Whatever happens with the film, their collaboration bodes well for what comes ahead. Pitt has been a big office magnet for decades, while Robbie, although being a seasoned performer, has just recently come into her own. In 2023, she reached her biggest point yet by producing the Barbie film, which was the highest-grossing film of the year (so far). This puts her in a unique position to continue directing where her impact will fall.
It will take time for these discussions to be completed, and even longer to complete the film. However, if these two are successful in creating a modern version of a film classic, it may become a franchise in the same way that the original did. Pitt and Robbie have the potential to create some of the most lovable characters in modern cinema if they remember to do it well.
