Full House Remake Reportedly Scrapped
Actor JOHN STAMOS' plans to reunite the cast of 90s U.S. sitcom FULL HOUSE for a modern remake have reportedly been scrapped.
Former child star Candace Cameron Bure told OK! magazine this month (Dec08) of Stamos' plan to update the hit family sitcom for new audiences, much like the recently revived shows Bionic Woman, Knight Rider and Beverly Hills, 90210.
The "semi-remake" would centre around Cameron Bure and co-star Jodie Sweetin's characters - who were the older sisters of Michelle Tanner, a role shared by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
But a TV insider has told E! news Stamos is "no longer pitching" the idea - because he couldn't drum up enough interest without the Olsen twins' involvement.
The source says, "We couldn't make the deal. It's completely dead right now."
