    I reckon this'll be a huge improvement on the original.

    This has been in development for close to a decade now. Not sure we have to ask "why" every time another remake is announced. As long as these remakes make money they keep getting made. Hollywood doesn't trust original ideas anymore, so they will always rather exploit a known quantity than come up with something new.

    A decade??? Have they got one person working one hour a week on it?

    I know the Hollywood lazy/greed thing but still irks me :mad:

    Various directors have been attached to it and then left of got fired as always with this long gestating projects. Darren Aronofsky was supposed to do it for a while, but after Black Swan was an unexpected hit he didn't feel under pressure to make one for the studios anymore and left.

    Oh well. Perhaps they should have remade 2 or 3 rather than the original :D those were shite :mad:

    Maybe they should get Lucas to give the original a makeover, give everybody an extra head and shoehorn distracting lumps of CGI in without regard for the plot or characters.

    i'm up for a remake. dont agree with the idea that hollywood can't come up with original ideas. what ideas do peeps want? it's practically all been done. something will always come along sooner or later that is ground breaking/epic: matrix, lord of the rings trilogy etc. The original isn't as good as I remember it anyway. I got the special edition DVD and sold it straight away on ebay.
  11. Someone like ED2009 crops up in Terminator 3

    This might just take the title of worse remake since prom night

    Monsters isn't a Hollywood film. It's a low (micro !) budget British indie film.

    Inception is the now rare exception to the rule.
  19. It's a refreshing approach to the genre; the sci-fi element is (almost) peripheral.
  20. I stand corrected. I suppose there probably is a Hollywood remake in the offering...

    what about district 9? That was pretty original to me.

    No there isn't, though its director has been hired to direct the next Hollywood attempt at Godzilla.

    i am aware of that. But it wouldn't have performed so well without a hollywood studio marketing it. Infact peter jackson was a producer on it-and yes I know he is from New Zeland.

    Reno The In Kraut

    That's the point. They are trying to come up with Hollywood films that aren't remakes or pr/sequels
  29. Reno

    Reno The In Kraut

    Clasping at straws. :D

    ..and however much you try to make out that Hollywood is a hive of creative originality, for every one of the very few films you'll be able to come up with that are originals, there are twenty which aren't.
