I find it interesting and amusing that they reversed the gender roles in The Giving Tree, with Philip Seymour Hoffman in the title role and Abigail Breslin as The Taking Child. Their re-imagining of Green Eggs and Ham is funny, too.
Goodnight, Moon: The source material consists nearly exclusively of scenes of a young boy saying goodnight to various things in and around his bedroom. Director Michael Bay hopes to maintain the original’s basic structure while replacing "saying goodnight to" with "exploding into an infernal fireball" and "a young boy" with "Will Smith." Also, the Moon killed Smith’s family and he’s out for revenge.
Sample Dialogue: "Say goodnight, Moon." *EXPLOSION*
Yes, I'm still laughing.
