Jackson to remake "Dambusters"

Peter Jackson is to remake the WW2 classic movie "The Dambusters".

I wonder whether they will change the name of Guy Gibson's dog?

Also, I really hope he does it without CGI. There are two Lancasters still flying they could use for the aerial shots (as well as lots of genuine wartime footage that could be spliced in). The Waikato dams could be mocked up to look like the Ruhr.

It'd be so much better than a high-tech cartoon!

I bet they will change it for entertainment reasons. Too many people will cringe when they hear the word otherwise. they could just not use the dog's name I guess.

I think they 'should' use it - for the obvious reasons. But maybe this isn't the right battle to fight.
