MAJOR LEAGUE franchise to make a return to the big screen?
Yes, because this is called for.
According to Movie Hole, writer/director David S. Ward, best known as the man behind the MAJOR LEAGUE franchise, is in talks with Morgan Creek about possibly launching a new film in that beloved comedy franchise, based on the character played by Charlie Sheen.
While I know that the series, or at least the first film, is rather beloved, I do not really see much need for this franchise to get a restart. Yes, I do think that a sports film like this could completely work in today’s world, and would be a great change of pace in the turgid and cliché world that is sports films. The modern sports film has nothing but stories of underdogs rising up to win a championship/important game, or stories of race relations, and has become one hell of a cliché genre of film. This could be the shot of comedy that the sports world could really use.
However, with the idea of the original cast reteaming, most likely in the role of coaches, makes me far from excited. That said, if you get a collection of solid comedic actors, this isn’t the worst reboot news in the world.
