Disaster Averted

Here I’ve been griping about all of the scraping-the-bottom-of-the-barrel SF/fantasy remakes coming down the pike (like, f’rinstance, Escape from New York and Red Sonja, oh my head), and it turns out that things could have been much, much worse.

Cracked Magazine has a list of the worst movies that Hollywood almost made, including a remake of Westworld starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

How the hell were they planning to explain a robotic Wild West villain with an Austrian accent? A malfunction in the voice programming? Some kind of practical joke from the maintenance guys?
