Oh no! Jessica Fletcher wants to close up shop in Cabot Cove.
Actress Angela Lansbury had come out and said it: the reboot of Murder, She Wrote is a bad idea. The great dame explains that she likes Octavia Spencer, who is set to star as the lead who probably will NOT be called Miz Fletcher, but it’s just wrong to rewrite such a classic:
I think it’s a mistake to call it “Murder, She Wrote,” because “Murder, She Wrote” will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person … So I’m sorry that they have to use the title “Murder, She Wrote,” even though they have access to it and it’s their right. I saw [Octavia] in “The Help” and thought she was absolutely wonderful, a lovely actress. So I wish her well, but I wish it wasn’t in “Murder, She Wrote.”
What does Octavia think about that? So far she hasn’t said a thing but I think her expression here says it all.
Can’t wait to see how this plays out. Meow!
