In late 2019, multi-talented media maven Issa Rae set off a storm of criticism after news surfaced she was looking to reboot the 1996 F. Gary Gray film, ‘Set It Off.’
As the announcement earned thumbs down from many of the movie’s enthusiasts, one of its flick’s stars – Vivica A. Fox – joined the chorus slamming the reports when she said:
“It’s a classic, leave it alone. There’s absolutely no reason to try to redo it.”
Now, hot on the promo trail for her forthcoming film, ‘The Photograph’ (click here to see the trailer), Rae’s clearing up rumors of her intent to recreate the cult classic.
Taking to our friends at Entertainment Tonight, Issa kept it short but sweet:
“Oh, I would never remake a classic,” she said. “I don’t know where that came from.”
