Topic: Remakes you want to happen and why?

I couldn't find this topic on the forums and thought it would be a good idea to have, with all the remakes that happen these days (I put it in the Mainstream Movies area because it can be any genre of movie).

I'll go first - I want The Godfather to be remade with Nicolas Cage as Michael Corleone, can you imagine the epicness of that remake? lol And maybe Brendan Fraser could be Sonny? I think would be a remake worth seeing alone.

What about you guys? What remakes do you want to see?

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

I would like to see a remake of The Cabin in the Woods...or maybe a remake of the '03 Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, oh wait they already did that.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

No more remakes!  Thanks.  That is all.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

A remake of This is Spinal Tap- all the characters are now vampires or zombies, or both (your pick).  All the humor with a tinge of horror (spinal tap, eh eh?)

Cast: David Spade, Seth Rogen, Carlos Mencia, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Kathy Griffin, Cameron Diaz
Director: Uwe Boll
Production: Asylum

How could this possibly miss?

HORROR HOTEL for damn sure, that'd truely ROCK!!!
Yeah that's my favorite all times Horror flick and YES I like remakes. Sometimes even more than the old ones, I Spit On Your Grave and When A Stranger Calls to name a few... They rocked more than the original IMO.

As for mainstream ones, Mean Girls, The Italian Job and The Island.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

I think they should remake the Island of Doctor Moreau.  I think the Effects and Science in general today could make it a much more believable concept, even over the Brando remake.  But Make it Dark...Rated R.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

I'd like to see a remake of "The Never Ending Story" and I'd love to see Joel Courtney from Super 8 take on the role of Bastian Bux or Atreyu, Chloe Mortesz as The Childlike Empress, Gary Oldman as Mr. Koreander and Liam Neeson as the voice of Falkor.

Make it happen, Hollywood. I'd pay to see it with a great cast like this.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

It may be cliche at this point, but I think we're due for a new high budget version of Dracula, maybe directed by Guillermo Del Toro.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

People will have to forget Argento's Dracula 3D first...

...Oh wait, nvm.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

Remake the first movie ever made and show it in IMAX.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

^^^
Oh A Trip To The Moon would rock in IMAX, the original is already insane.

House By The Cemetary  Let Rob Zombie have FULL rein and change the name of the kid from "Bob" heh

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

^^^ Now there's an intriguing thought.  The idea of Zombie remaking Fulci oozes potential.  It would be interesting to see him tackle House, or maybe Manhattan Baby, Aenigma.  Fulci flicks which left room for improvement.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

One that I think could be updated and  is the classic movie 'The Warriors."

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

I like the idea of Rob Zombie making a Fulci movie, House by the Cemetery would probably be the best one, but I would be down for a remake of the Beyond or City of the Living Dead, though there wouldn't be much room for improvement.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

The Spielberg version of LICKITY SPLIT.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

Lolita
Touristas

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

The Creeping Terror.

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

Needful Things since they screwed up the first version so bad

Re: Remakes you want to happen and why?

The Warriors would be f'ing sick. Love to see that.


For me:
Dual
The Wraith
Repo Man
Maximum Overdrive
Dressed To Kill
Blow Out
The Exterminator
