A while back, we talked about Footloose being remade. Then news came that Dirty Dancing was being rebooted. Bridget Jones is making a third return to the screen. And now? Now Austin Powers will be back for the fourth time, it was just announced.
Okay. We get it; popular movies from the past can do well again if they’re remade. And again, we get it. It’s probably easier to sell a tried-and-true idea in Hollywood than one that’s out-of-the-box zany.
Fine. But if you’re remaking, why not take a film that wasn’t a huge success, that fell short of its potential and remake that one to fulfill its original scope and vision? Instead of remaking one that was perfect as it was (no, not Footloose, but Dirty Dancing and the first Bridget Jones movies were pretty darn perfect).
So based on that, what film(s) would you like to see remade?
