John Carpenter's Christine Remake

Meh

Man what is with all the remakes? Seriously I just dont get it. It is being reported by ComingSoon that the writer of Disturbia Christopher Landon is being tapped to work on the project. Quote:

"['Christine'] has been all over the place...If it happens or not we'll see, but when I came in what I wanted to do was really go back to the book, the source material. I'm a fan of the Carpenter version, it is fun. But the book was much more of a possession story than it was just a killer car.

That's what made the book so great is that what was so terrifying was that it wasn't just about an inanimate object running around and killing people, it was a boy who was sorta being taken over by the former owner of the car - and there was something more terrifying about that. Also, I just love the dynamics of the characters and so forth. Right now it's way too soon say anything else about it. We're so in the thick of deal-making, I don't want to blow anything else!"

Does anyone want to see this movie get remade? I mean Escape from New York I am stoked to see remade, but thats one in 100.
