A Cannonball Run Remake is Coming
Last week some very exciting news came across the wire. Warner Brothers, the Yates Family, and the other holders of the “Cannonball Run” franchise trademarks have reached an agreement to produce a modern version. This has been attempted over and over again but always ran into obstacles. As this article states, the spirit of the film is much more likely to reflect the wackiness of the 1981 film rather than the speed of our 2013 Record Run. Based on the resurgence of interest in the idea and the 11 new distance driving records set in 2015 including our 2904 Competitive Event Record. The writer/director of the film has Tropic Thunder on the resume, one of my favorite comedies of recent years. I cannot wait to see what they come up with.
