Vivica A. Fox Against Issa Rae’s ‘Set It Off’ Remake: ‘There’s No Reason to Redo It!’

Published: Saturday 16th Nov 2019 by Rashad

Never one to mince words, Vivica A. Fox didn’t shy away from the opportunity to speak out against the reported remake of the 1996 F. Gary Gray film, ‘Set It Off’ (in which she starred).

Recently quizzed by our friends at ‘Entertainment Tonight’ about the in-the-works reboot, to be helmed by Issa Rae (as we reported here), Fox went on record to discuss the ‘tremendous chore’ of remaking such a cult classic:

“It’s a classic, leave it alone.

There’s absolutely no reason to try to redo it. It’s been done, and we did it so well, that people are absolutely going to compare it to that and I think that’s her taking on a tremendous chore because that film has become a cult classic and some things are just better left.”

That’s not all she said.  She the rest inside:

 

 

“Like, create your own franchise,” she continued. “If you want to do a new film of girls robbing banks, create your own thing. You can make it up to date. We did that film in 1996. We are in 2019, going into 2020. So, create your own thing because people are absolutely going to compare it to it, and she’ll probably, if it’s not good, they’re going to slay her for it.” [source]

As of time reported, Rae hasn’t responded to the 55-year-old’s comments.

    I agree with Vivica. These days everybody is out of new ideas like all these Clarskon trolls copying. I am the original Clarkson. Please ignore these fools who pretend to be me. They are mad because I speak truth.

    • 🍇 The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 16, 2019

      I’m the original and only Jasmine these other chicks are my Sons, I’m mother to these HooEeSsss

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Even I know that is not true. You are probably the troll that has been impersonating me. You impersonate everyone but at the end of the day who are you? A nobody! All we know is you are a Nicki Minaj fan. Are you Jasmine or Clarkson or Fancy Bish? You have so many troll accounts fool u forgot to make your own presence.

    She’s right and why put her Age in there TGJ. Dummies

    • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

      It’s just to shame her and punish her for being old

      Society loves to shame and punish women for aging.

      Easiest way to punish an old woman is to mention her age.
      They do it to madonna and jlo alot
      They will soon start doing it to beyonce once she turns 40.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Please ignore this troll. It is trying to sound like me by bringing up my favs. Next it will start rattling off about Camila. Please ignore the troll. Thanks.

      Please ignore this troll. Now it is copying and pasting what I wrote above.

  5. Lol November 16, 2019

    She’s absolutely right. I don’t know what makes Issa think we want a remake or reboot of this. It’ll be the next Charlie’s angels.

  6. 👋🏼 November 16, 2019

    Where’s the billboard top artist of all time post ????????? 🤔 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

    • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

      Damn beyonce didn’t appear on the decade end hot 100 songs.
      Rihanna appeared twice, we found love and work

      Camila appeared once, havana number 59

      Damn Beyonce dont have any concrete achievements.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Where is Madonna and Jennifer Lopez at on the list? People know I would never degrade Begonce. She deserves the same respect as Madonna and Jennifer Lopez in not being pitted against younger artists. I realize i have a bad habit pf putting other races on a pedastool because i suffer self-hate and hate my blue black dark dark skin tone but i would never diss Beyonce. Beyonce is the lead singer of one of the greatest selling female groups of all time and is also one of the best selling artists of all times and she is one of the best touring forces of all time.

      • Fancy BISH November 16, 2019

        Katy Perry appeared 6 times yet bleachyonce has been more relevent in the past few years

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Beyonce relevant where?

        Billboard didnt even acknowledge her duet with ed Sheeran on this decade end list cause it was fraudulent

        Formation just crossed 50 million streams on spotify last week. How shameful is this

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Ignore the trolls. He knows i cant stand black women but Beyonce is the exception. I would never come for Queen Bee 🐝. I dont want the Beehive coming after me because of some troll impersonating me. Please ignore the troll. Thanks.

      • Jamon_84 November 16, 2019

        I predict the decade top 10 artists to be
        No particular order:

        Drake
        Taylor Swift
        Adele
        Rihanna
        Katy Perry
        Bruno Mars
        Justin Bieber
        Ed Sherman
        Maroon 5
        Post Malone

    Grape juice, the troll keeps impersonating me.
    Block their IP address please.
    They are disrupting the comment section

    The comment section is for grown ups who wanna share their different opinions and views on different topics

    Pls do something about this troll making multiple fake Clarkson profiles and now copying and pasting my verbiage to fool other commenters that it is me.

    • Fancy BISH November 16, 2019

      Preach sistren, the identity thief who kisses Memes ass is definitely not me. I don’t need no validation from a nobody on an irrelevent blog, TGJ block the ass licking iggy fan.

      • Clarksoon November 16, 2019

        Clearly it is you that is the troll. What is your end game? Have you even thought that far yet?

  8. Tino November 17, 2019

    I’m talking about it, ain’t nobody gonna stop me from talking about it.

  9. XYZ November 17, 2019
