Sunderland Blasts Dirty Dozen Remake
Veteran actor DONALD SUTHERLAND has slammed Hollywood's plans to remake his classic 1967 anti-war movie THE DIRTY DOZEN. Sutherland credits the film, directed by ROBERT ALDRICH and featuring a galaxy of stars including LEE MARVIN and CHARLES BRONSON, with launching his own career. But the 70-year-old fears the forthcoming remake will sacrifice the anti-combat intent of the original film. He tells MTV, "It's silly. Robert Aldrich was making a film against war; most movies glorify war and he was showing how brutal and vulgar and awful it was. It's not an adventure story. "Forget it. Go look at JIMMY BROWN falling on cobblestones (in the original film). That's a piece of work."
