In yet another example of out-of-touch producers fixing what isn't broken, the walkie-talkies in E.T. will be digitally replaced by guns.
1982's E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial is getting the Blu Ray treatment in November, but fans may be upset when they learn that director Steven Spielberg is making some pretty drastic changes to the beloved classic. In one memorable scene in the movie, federal agents (spoiler alert!) threaten young Eliot and his friends with walkie-talkies. The Outhouse has learned that, through the miracles of modern computer graphics, and in what is likely an effort to make the film seem more "extreme" for modern times, the walkie talkies will be digitally replaced by guns. Watch the Blu Ray trailer below and see for yourself.
This reporter wonders when Hollywood will learn to stop messing with the classics. What's next, altering Star Wars so that Han Solo shoots first?
