EVERYONE should be against this reboot. This is just not needed in anyone’s life. If you want to watch Murder She Wrote, then watch the damn original. It is certainly better than any reboot will be. Ms. Lansbury isn’t against the idea of the whole show, but she is against remaking it with the old title.
“I think it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote, because Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person,” the 88-year-old actress explained, referring to her much-beloved character.
She continued: “So I’m sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it’s their right.”
Apparently Octavia Spencer is slated to play the main role, which is odd. I thought she mainly did movies.
“I saw her in The Help and thought she was absolutely wonderful, a lovely actress,” the theater veteran told the AP of the Help star. “So I wish her well, but I wish it wasn’t in Murder, She Wrote.”
Angela Lansbury is a CLASS ACT. She hates the idea but expressed her opinion kindly. Why can’t everyone be like that?? Mrs. Potts forever. So.. are you going to watch this reboot?
