Vivica A. Fox reacted angrily to the news that Issa Rae intends to remake the hit all-female bank heist movie Set It Off. Vivica, pictured left, told Issa to "create your own franchise" as she responded to the news that the Insecure star is working on a reboot of her 1996 crime drama.

A young Vivica, pictured 2nd from right, starred alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, far right, Queen Latifah, far left, and Kimberly Elise, 2nd from left, in the original film, about a group of female friends who use insider information to rob Los Angeles banks.

Despite the demand for a remake of the urban classic, a Set It Off sequel was never made.

According to WENN.com, Issa, 34, is in the early stages of developing a new version of the film but, when asked about the prospect by Entertainment Tonight, Vivica was less than enthusiastic of the remake plan.

"It's a classic, leave it alone," the 55-year-old actress responded, bluntly. "There's absolutely no reason to try to redo it. It's been done, and we did it so well, that people are absolutely going to compare it to that and I think that's her taking on a tremendous chore because that film has become a cult classic and some things are just better left."

Vivica said Issa will face a massive backlash if she gets the reboot wrong: "Like, create your own franchise. If you want to do a new film of girls robbing banks, create your own thing. You can make it up to date. We did that film in 1996. We are in 2019, going into 2020. So, create your own thing because people are absolutely going to compare it to it, and she'll probably, if it's not good, they're going to slay her for it."

Exclusive - Lamar Odom Leaves The USA For A 2 Month Basketball Contract In Spain

Washed up NBA player Lamar Odom was seen arriving at Los Angeles International Airport before boarding a flight to play professional basketball for 2 months in Spain. It must be humiliating for Odom to go from playing with the LA Lakers to marrying one of the Kardashians and now playing overseas with the other ex-NBA scrubs. Odom married Khloé Kardashian in September 2009. Kardashian filed for divorce soon after the Dopamine faded. Still in denial and unable to let go, Lamar wears his wedding ring, and also still refers to Khloé as his wife. He also mentions to anyone who will listen that Bruce and Kris Jenner are his biggest supporters. Lamar still doesn't get it that he was used by the Kardashians and discarded like curbside trash.
