Here’s a little interesting twist:  while everyone is spelling doomsday for the soap genre, word out today is that Paramount Pictures is remaking the  1991 hit ensemble comedy, Soapdish, which starred Kevin Kline, Sally Field, Robert Downey, Jr, and Whoopi Goldberg.

The remake will center around a telenovela. Writer/producer/director Rob Reiner is producing the remake, and his co-producer Alan Greisman  produced the original Soapdish The project was recently announced internally  throughout Paramount, and is now out to writers.  It’s not out of the realm of possibility that Reiner is producing the remake with an eye toward directing it as well.
