Everything old is new again

A few weeks ago, I was watching Ebert & Roeper. They were praising Eddie Murphy’s performance in his new movie. And saying good things about the new Rocky flick. And it was thumbs way up for the new Clint Eastwood movie. And I was saying “what decade is this?”
So the new Rocky movie is in the theaters, and this summer brings us a new Bruce Willis Die Hard flick. And they’ve just announced the fourth Indiana Jones picture will film this year. And on Inside the Actor Studio the other day, Eddie Murphy said that he is now looking strongly into the possibility of Beverly Hills Cop 4.
I wonder if this is the way it will always be in the future — the actor gets big enough that they don’t have to keep making their hit… and then they will cool, and find it the surest thing to go back to.
(As footnotes in the everything-old-is-new-again: NBC is planning a new Bionic Woman series, and Fox is considering a TV show based on the 1976 Bill Cosby/Raquel Welch/Harvey Keitel ambulance driver film Mother, Jugs, and Speed.)
