BJ And The Bear Remake

Dateline Hollywood - Glenn Reynolds and Frank J. The Chimp set to star in a big budget remake for Fox.

BJ And The Bear is the story of B.J. McCay (Glenn Reynolds) is a good-looking young trucker who travelers around the country in his big red and white rig, with a single companion, his chimp Bear (Frank J The Chimp). Although he logs a lot of miles, B.J. is based in rural Georgia, where he is confronted by a corrupt local sheriff Elroy P. Lobo and his two fellow lawmen, Sheriffs Cain and Masters.

The storyline from the TV series has been modernized and altered slightly in that the relationship between McCay and Bear is more complicated. Said Fox spokesman, "There's a father/son battle going on between BJ and Bear even as they are pursued by the police."


Early rumors from the set indicate that the surprise plot twist may involve the normally zany chimp turning on BJ and selling him out to the police for a crate of bananas. The pictures climax is said to be a confrontation leading to one of the characters demise. The outcome is still secret but since Fox has secured the services of Reynolds for the planned sequels, and not resigned Frank J The Chimp insiders suspect The Bear character is killed off. Insiders predict that BJ will end up solo or paired with a new partner in the sequels. Frank J, who has no other acting prospects, has been sent back to his cage at the Fresno petting zoo.

Roxy:

Is the guy in the picture with Bear going to be the new B.J.? If so, is he going to be made to look different in the show because he isn't as attractive as the last B.J. As a matter of fact I don't think he even comes close to what B.J. should look like giving the fact that a lot of what the show has to do with is his looks; you know with him being surrounded by all those girls. Also the lead in the story says he is a good looking truck driver bla bla bla.
Thanks,
Roxy

what's the deal with the plot of having bear sell B.J. out and what about that beautiful triditional red and white kenworth rig are you going to change that as well? from what I gather this is a CHEESY CHEESY atemp to mess up a great classic show. Why not just push toward getting the orgional show aired.

Blaze:

Why change a classic show???? Use the original actor and don't change the truck. FOX will fall flat in the ratings if they alter anything. Example---Dukes of Hazzard Reunion used the SAME cars, and actors/actresses. Why change????

Kyle:

http://www.universal-playback.com were about to release a VHS series of BJ with a constant 'COMING SOON' strap-line,but they changed their minds, and took it off their site as if they had never considered it. You can get some privately recorded DVDs on ebay, but who knows the quality.

I hope, they never do a remake, they'd probably have Eddy Murphy in the lead a PC pet, and no smut, plus the rig would change to one of those ugly air conditioned blamanges.
