I second that one. Runaway was awesome.

How about Rob Downey Junior. We know he can hoist the 'tashe.

Kurt Russel should be the lead again.He was one of the few good things in the "original" Soldier....


I love Kurt. He's one of my favorite actors, but he's too old for that part now. Plus, he has gotten quite the beer belly lately and I doubt he'd want to put in the time to get rid of it and become brawny again unless they offered him a boat load of cash. He also hurt himself pretty bad during the filming and based on comments I've heard and read from him when he talks about his experiences during that movie, I doubt he'd want to return. I do hope Kurt does star in a movie again soon. He hasn't done anything since Cutlass and the IMDB doesn't have him listed under anything. I'd love for Kurt to play a bad-ass again. He proved in Death Proof that he still has it in him.

Agree on the last two posted suggestions.
Soldier was a near miss - but a miss nonetheless.
And Runaway wasn't that bad - it's definitely salvageable.

Runaway was a Bladerunner-esque film and could be done quite dark now. The homing bullets could be done awesome now.
Soldier was an ok film, yes it could have been better but it's been done so many times before.

I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of the film, Looker
If I remember correctly, it wasn't all that bad.

It might be a good time to remake Enemy Mine. Could be a nice political film but with a satisfying ending and very easy to draw parallels

nice suggestion, papa. i remember catching this on HBO in the late 80's, a lot. given an "A list" budget, director, and cast it could be a real headliner, imo. would be a great role for Harrison Ford.

Let's see........

Killer Shrews, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, The Crater Lake Monster, Chopping Mall.

Yeah they're mostly terrible films but I could write remakes to these without question and make them the greatness they truly could be.

Star Wars and before you say wait a minute wasn't that mentioned here before, I'm talking about the original trilogy.

I'd like too see a complete six episode series that is coherent in tone and look and that way everybody can live happily ever after knowing thatvthe prequels don't belong directly to the original trilogy but are part of a different telling of the same story.

Does Hollywood really need to remake any movies? That's all they've been doing the last few years (or more) do we need a new The Day The Earth Stood Still? It doesn't look that faithful to the original message of peace Keanu's character & GORT seem a little more malevolent from what I can see in the previews.

But really there are enough ideas out there that they shouldn't be recycling movies, Death Race, it was a crappy movie in 1975 when it was Death Race 2000 and it was a crappy movie in 2008.

Hollywood has remade/stolen ideas since its inception. Some remakes work (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Fly, The Thing), some don't (The Pink Panther, You've Got Mail, Solaris), some are helmed by the same director (An Affair to Remember, The Man Who Knew Too Much), and most are harmless updates (Assault on Precinct 13, Shaft, Cape Fear, The Italian Job).

I don't care if a film is a remake as long as it's good (and if it's of a "classic" that enough time has passed to warrant the update, like with King Kong.

What Hollywood should be doing is looking for those little gems that had a cool idea but the execution was a little off and remake those into something that realizes its potential.

I admit that Solaris wasn't all-round perfect, but it's a little unfair to group it in with The Pink Panther.

I'd like to see big-budget remakes of those old Ray Harryhausen things like Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts. With real actors and modern effects. Harryhausen's movies keep coming on TV, and to me, they're getting less and less fun to watch. When I was a kid, I thought they were awesome, and now I think they're just silly.

I just checked IMDB, and it turns out you're right! Directed by Louis Leterrier. I hadn't known about it before.

Clash of The Titans should be left well alone. Jason & The Argonauts, while a much better movie, would be better to remake IMO. The Rock could play Hercules. Etc, etc.

Does the phrase 'release the Kraken' have the same meaning elsewhere that is does in the UK? Well, my childish corner of North London anyway.

How about Fatherland?

A great film as it was but I would really like to see an update on that. Would make a great tale nowadays and could draw quite a few parallels with a modern surveillance society.

What would be even better is if society was so much better off in so many ways but the truth had to come out.

I also think that 'the birds' could do with an update but it wouldn't be about just birds, it would be all animals attacking mankind for it's cruelty.
Of course, I wouldn't want it to ba attached to the original classic in any way.

I agree with the above posts that we need more fantasy/greek or norse mythology fantasy films.

And one last request, a new version of the porn classic, 'Hayward Dective Agency'. Damn fine film that.

I finally saw the original Hellraiser last week, and I know this one is already slated for remakening. So I'll just say that I add my support to the idea of remaking this. It would be awesome of Guillemero Del Toro did it, or let that dude who directed The Ophanage do it since his movie looked exactly like Del Toro's style.

I think the original was a good movie, but I definately think there were a lot of areas that could benefit from being fleshed out. The idea of the magic box being the ultimate thrill / sensory experience was definately in there, but I think it could be built up more. And I think in this day and age it's still as relevant if not more so that people work in front screens all day and don't communicate in person much anymore and would be crying for a real sensory experience.

I also thought the original had a lot of that Dario Argento style characterization in which characters do really unnatural things and accept really freaky situations way too easily and it would be nice to see a take on the story where the characters are more grounded.

Ive had the idea that they redo the Super Mario Brothers movie, sort of like the way they did a Scanner Darkly, with the actors then they went in and painted over them...of course it would have to be a better story, but I think they could do something cool like that?

With James Gandolfini as Mario and John Tuturo as Luigi with Michael Clark Duncan as Bowser. I would pay solid money to see Gandolfini flying around by flapping a racoon tail.

I think Jet Li should play Toad and maybe Rebecca Romijn as Princess Toadstool.

And get Crystal Castles to do the score.

Silver Streak

Wilder and Pryor are great, so it would be hard to replace them, but the movie just drags in many parts (Especially in the first half hour) and is way too unbalanced. (Especially in the comedy parts, where it feels more than once that nobody knew how silly the comedy was supposed to be.)

If they could do it low key, not a whole lot of FX, rely more on the charisma of a leading man, fill it with hot babes and clueless authority figures(w/the exception of a 'hero') it would work and launch a franchise.

Like these titles:

Blacula Conquers The World
Blacula Rises From Hell
Blacula And The Temple Of Satan
Blacula Rules The Night
Blacula Returns
Blacula Must Be Destroyed

Technically not 'remakes' but I'll bet my last dollar that if they do remake it, one of those titles will be used in some way or another.

Wilder and Pryor are great, so it would be hard to replace them, but the movie just drags in many parts (Especially in the first half hour) and is way too unbalanced. (Especially in the comedy parts, where it feels more than once that nobody knew how silly the comedy was supposed to be.)

Chris Rock and Steve Zahn, written and directed by Shane Black?

Ya know, I realize Hitchcock is all untouchable 'n shit, and I know that ever since the Psycho Remake people have been really scared of even mentioning a remake of anything he did. And I know we've got a shitty remake of The Birds coming, which aims to be another preachy Day After Tomorrow environmentalist flick, but....


...


... I would kinda totally be up for a remake of NOTORIOUS if they just did it BLACK BOOK style. In fact, I think Black Book was kinda riffing on it a bit, but very loosely. I could see Connie Neilson really pulling this role off. I'd probably want either Briand De Palma on it or Paul Verhoeven, but I'm sure there's a crop of other lesser established filmmakers who could handle it.

I dunno, I just think it could work.

Nothing really wrong with remaking Hitchcock films of books or plays but stay away from the original screenplay work like North by Northwest.
Go fuck yourself.

MOVIES THAT NEED TO BE MADE: I, ROBOT

Postby TheButcher on Tue Jan 20, 2009 11:33 pm

There was an earlier attempt at a movie version of I, Robot, but it never made it to the screen. In 1969 the rights were optioned to Hollywood, but no progress was made toward making a movie until 1977, when Harlan Ellison, an award-winning author and friend of Asimov, was hired to write a screenplay. Ellison worked on it for a year, and created a screenplay that Asimov thought would make a truly marvelous film. But Hollywood did not have the nerve to make a movie from that screenplay, and the project was shelved. Ellison regained control of his work, and it was published in 1987 as I, Robot: The Illustrated Screenplay.

All of Harryhausen's stuff, actually. His effects were cool, but they look really quaint by today's standards.

I think they should remake "3 days of the condor".
That is one underated movie. A smart CIA thriller way before the bourne trilogy.
