Goodbye Pork Pie: how the remake might fare against the original Kiwi favourite
The first trailer for Pork Pie, the remake of 1981 Kiwi hit Goodbye Pork Pie is out and with it come some clues about what direction the new movie might be taking.
The film, directed by Matt Murphy - the son of Geoff Murphy, who made the original - is due out on February 2, 2017.
Here's how the new model of the north-to-south car-chase movie might shape up.
The car
Well it's a yellow Mini. And it has the same number plate as the 1981 one - IZ6393.
The British Leyland model in the original arrived in Invercargill having been liberated of its doors and pretty much everything else but its engine, chassis and remaining body work.
In the new one the BMW-made yellow mini looks as if it's hardly been run in by the time Dean O'Gorman pops through the sunroof to yell: "I'm taking this bloody car to Invercargill!" In the original, Tony Barry's same line ended with "boy".....
