Hudlers audition for "Body Heat II"
Tuesday, August 12, 2008

This time of year it gets so steamy in southwest Florida that the sultry movie "Body Heat" (William Hurt, Kathleen Turner) generally pops into our minds. If you missed the movie, it's set in a very-hot, claustrophobic, tropical town ... and the air is so moist and heavy outside that it drives a man and woman to ... well ... to do what William Hurt and Kathleen Turner do so well in that movie: kill and have sex.

In these days of everyone-can-be-a-star-because-we-all-have-cameras-that-make-movies, I was thinking of filming Body Heat II right here on Coconut Drive. We've already got the setting.


Yes, that's Carol, president of the Gannett corporation's southern U.S. newspaper division, luxuriating in our waterfront swimming pool. We blow up a baby pool every summer while our daughter's away at camp. 'Really should put in a real pool, but, you know ... that time and money thing. Oh, the tequila we've enjoyed in this location! ... Lying there, watching the summer thunderstorms roll across the water.

But back to Body Heat. I think it's time for a remake. Whom would you cast in the two roles? And NO NAMES from High School Musical.
