With the trailer for HBO's 'Phil Spector,' it's easy to fixate on the tabloid nature of the project and Al Pacino's multitude of wigs. Sure, that's what the real Phil Spector looked like in court, but will that overwhelm this true life story about Spector's court time and possible murder of Lana Clarkson? Hopefully writer/director David Mamet has some tricks up his sleeve.
Reboots are not exclusively contained to the movie world, as we can see by recent upgrades of venerable TV shows like 'Hawaii 5-0' and '90210.' Now CBS is looking to remake one of its oldest and most successful Western shows -- with David Mamet in charge.
