Fans of surnames were delighted this year when The Amazing Spider-Man was directed by someone named Marc Webb (get it??) and The Odd Life of Timothy Green, about a boy who grows out of a plant, was directed by Peter Hedges (also get it??). We think this should be a trend, and so we imagined movies from the past being remade by name-appropriate filmmakers. Our list of name-appropriate directors is below, add your own in the comments section! The Birds: Brad Bird The Crow: Cameron Crowe Fast Food Nation: Neil Burger Lock Up: Nicolas Cage The Woodsman: John Carpenter Babe: Kevin Bacon Coffy: Craig Brewer Raging Bull: Guillermo del Toro Boogie Nights: Kirby Dick 1492: Conquest of Paradise: Chris Columbus Night at the Museum: Davis »
