Coming soon (maybe) to a theater near you, new versions of,,,

10 (wonder who get's Bo Derek's dreads)
Alice Sweet Alice
All of Me
An American Werewolf in London (mistake; the original was great)
Angel Heart
Army of Darkness
Arthur
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (love the original, but no)
Back to School
Barbarella (with Rose McGowan; ugh)
The Blob (again)
The Birds (never remake Hitchcock; you'll look awful by comparison)
Bride of Frankenstein (how do you do this without doing "Frankenstein" first?)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Casablanca (made by, and starring, Madonna)
Conan the Barbarian (who's the Ahnuld this time?)
Creature from the Black Lagoon
Child's Play (I'm not kidding)
Children of the Corn (twice, Sci-Fi channel showed theirs already and it honestly wasn't bad)
Clash of the Titans (with the guy from Terminator: Salvation as Perseus and Alexa Davalos as Andromeda)
Clue (apparently somebody doesn't have one)
Day of the Triffids (giant killer flowers; yes, I'm serious)
Death Wish (who's the new Bronson?)
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (I like this idea; that TV movie scared the crap out of me as a kid)
Dune (just can't fit it in a two hour movie)
Escape from New York
Footloose (with Julianne Hough; they tried to get Zac Efron of "High School Musical" for the lead but failed)
Fright Night
The Gate (why?)
Heavy Metal
Hellraiser
Highlander (I guess there can't be only one)
I Spit On Your Grave
IT (as a movie, not a miniseries)
It's Alive (never saw the whole movie; commercial gave me the willies as a kid)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (again; apparently by the Wachowski brothers)
Little Shop of Horrors (not whores, horrors)
Logan's Run (I admit I'm interested)
Meatballs
Monster Squad
Motel Hell
Near Dark (oh, come on)
Nightmare on Elm Street (Jackie Earle Haley of "Watchmen" is the new Freddy)
Night of the Demons (Linda Blair movies not called "The Exorcist" were generally awful, including Exorcist II)
Plan 9 from OUter Space (they're doing it seriously, not as a spoof)
Predator (reboot, not a sequel)
Pirhana
Poltergeist (they're heeeeeeere...again)
Porkys (apparently this is Howard Stern's idea)
Re-Animator
Red Dawn
Red Sonja (why was the first one made?)
Robocop
Romancing the Stone
Rosemary's Baby
Scanners (another idea I might actually like)
Scream (reboot, trying for a lot of the same cast; seriously, why?)
Short Circuit (Something commercial has happened...Number Five is recycled)
Silent Night, Deadly Night (killer Santa Claus)
Suspiria (brutal opening to this one; another commercial that scared me)
Swamp Thing
The Brood
The Dirty Dozen (might work)
The Evil Dead
The Illustrated Man
The Incredible Shrinking Man (as an Eddie Murphy comedy)
The Jetsons (live action)
The Karate Kid (with Jackie Chan as Miyagi and Will Smith's kid as Daniel)
The Last Dragon (Samuel L Jackson as Sho' Nuff; this I wanna see)
The Last Starfighter
The People Under the Stairs
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (no really, I'm not kidding)
The Shadow (I liked the first one, honestly)
The Stepfather (already being advertised)
The Swarm
The Thing (I'm interested)
The Warriors
They Live (who could play the Roddy Piper role?)
Terror Train (minus David Copperfield this time?)
Total Recall (once again, let me state, I am not kidding)
Videodrome
Westworld ("The Terminator" borrowed a lot from the original)
When Worlds Collide (already done, twice; "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact")
The Wolfman (with Benicio Del Toro; this one might actually be good)


Word also that TV shows "ChiPs" "Dallas", "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" (with Jessica Simpson leading the red swimsuit brigade) will all get big screen treatments. And sequels are planned for "I Robot", "I Am Legend", "Cars", "Jeepers Creepers" and - get ready for it - "Beverly Hills Cop".

So, anyone wanna try to say that Hollywood hasn't run out of ideas?

I don't see how they can possibly remake the alley fight scene from "They Live", and the brilliance of Piper's ad-libbed "bubble gum" line wouldn't be as good in a rehash.

And the Wachowskis remaking "Body Snatchers"? That just sounds bad.

The Wachowskis are one trick ponies. Both the second and third movie in the Matrix trilogy were complete trash and what they did with Speed Racer should have gotten their directing rights permanently revoked.

Thought about putting They Live in the criminal list because it is nearly perfection as it is, but decided that it might have promise as long as they take it in a different direction. The lead cant be that 80s action hero dropping one liners and effortlessly kicking ass. If he says the bubble gum line or any derivation of it Ill go to Hollywood myself to kick the screenwriter & director in their balls.

Disgusting.

They Live
Predator
Total Recall
RoboCop


Classics from the 80's, Movie Studios today are all pussies they will never be able to duplicate the gritty violent & dark nature of those movies, Verhoven's Robocop and Total Recall are dark works of art that cannont be duplicated with modern CGI which will be grossly over used.

Remakes consist of "Teen Friendly" actors/actresses, over-used CGI, and family friendly & what i mean by that is take the bad news bears remake the orignial had them drinking beer in the back seat of the car and in the remake it was Pepsi...... Uchhhhhk :ack2::ack2::ack2:

They should not touch Rosemary's Baby either. Brilliant flick, won't be improved with corn CGI

As far as old TV shows, you left out Paladin, which will star Eminem.

Criminal:

Predator
Casablanca - Wouldn't care, except... Madonna?
Total Recall
Robocop - No Verhoeven remakes, ever
Suspiria - A horror classic. One of the most beautifully gory movies ever made
Poltergeist
Invasion of the Body Snatchers - The Cohens are the only brothers in Hollywood who should direct

Interested:

10
The Karate Kid
Clash of the Titans - Sam Worthington is the man

WTF?:

Clue
Remaking Evil Dead and Army of Darkness at the same time?
Silent Night, Deadly Night
Scream
Plan 9
Heavy Metal - SOUTH PARK DID IT! SOUTH PARK DID IT!

I don't get it. How do you have a prequel when the whole story of how it began took place within the movie? :confused:

Like trying to make Footloose with Zac Efron? :sosp:

If they're going to remake "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and play it straight, then I'm sure at some point they'll probably decide to remake "Showgirls" too (we can get it right this time). And of course, with all the Scientology adherents out there, I have to wonder if someone will get the bright idea to try to reboot "Battlefield Earth".

And hey, you just know somebody out there is probably saying to themselves, "With all the technology we have now, think how cool a remake of 'Jaws' could look."

(if that happens, I might take a plane out to California and set fire to the 'Hollywood' sign)

Dune needs to be remade. The original was a convoluted mess.

10 won't be the same today. They should reverse the roles....cougars are all the rage now.

IDk..lol..but the guy died in the end so i dont think they do a sequel

Warner Brothers has officially confirmed today that a prequel to I Am Legend is currently in development. We first mentioned this back in July, when director Francis Lawrence confirmed that they've been working on ideas for a prequel.
