This movie is my spirit animal. I have watched it more times that I can count.
But... Kevin Smith? Hm. Clerks. Mallrats. Dogma. I could see him treating Buckaroo right... possibly.
I wonder if a disjointed and chaotic movie like Buckaroo could exist today, and be embraced for being "in tone" with the original, of it would just be another Suicide Squad.
Get Gilliam to do some writing and set design. Let Peter Jackson take care of the over-the-top parts of filming, and Kevin Smith run the whole thing.
Shit. I dunno. That's about as likely to happen as anything else! Buckaroo is the untouchable sequel...
