A coworker and i were discussing earlier that a shit ton of old movies get remade more and more each year, and it got me wondering, what modern day movies (lets just say from 2000 - 2013) will be remade 10, 20 or 30 years from now?

I remember reading somewhere that already a reboot of Batman is suppose to happen around 2019 or so, and spiderman is already on its second reboot sequel just 10 years after the original one came out.


What do you guys think will be remade? What do you think should or shouldn't be remade?

Unless there's some huge advancement in cgi or cinematography between now and then, I can't see any being remade. But I do suspect a shit load of sequels and prequels and per usual.

Ya I agree. I really can't stand the sons of anarchy guy. And I felt like Pearlman was in it just to keep up the collab score with del toro.

a remake of the matrix with more modern effects might be cool. the first one holds up, but some parts of reloaded and revolutions look way dated because they got a little TOO ambitious with the cgi.

The only movies I wanna see remade are movies that had a cool concept that failed to be good.

It's gonna need a lot more than better acting tbh. As much as I enjoyed the action, it was just overloaded with movie clichés, stereotypes and bullshit plotholes. Pacific Rim would be better if they would not pretend to be able to provide a deep story. More robots. More pewpew. Less drama.

Snow White and the Huntsman immediately came to mind, even though it's an adaptation itself

I'd rather not see it be remade, but I think its inevitable.

Though the movie was released in 97, Spawn is due for a remake. It's time for a dark "superhero" movie that is going to be rated R with nothing held back (violence wise).

America's rating system is one of the reasons why films hold back. Here in the UK we have BBFC and it goes from U, PG, 12A, 15, 18, R18 (porn basically).

Here an 18+ film can be marketed like any other film is however if a film the US is an NC17 then the producers are pretty much ****ed and will never profit. Rated R has a lot of holdbacks.

Check out the documentary "This Film is Not Yet Rated" to learn more, its interesting how corrupt and pathetic the American Classification board is.

A NC-17 Spawn movie...

But yeah, I agree with you, NG. But there are some movies that pushed it a bit and still stay within the R. If Spawn could be like that, it would be badass.

Not sure, but I highly recommend it to all film fans. Matt Stone/Trey Parker's section was pure brilliance.

A serious Spawn I could get behind 100%. Also now that I think about it. I've really love a re-remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still.


And even though this is old. A re-remake of Children of the Corn. The recent remake or whatever it was supposed to be was one of the worst movies ever.

Starship Troopers.


They've already bastardized Total Recall and are doing it to Robocop right now. Make it a Verhoeven hat trick.

Why would you need to make an NC17 anyway tho

Watch a film that is rated by the BBFC as a 15 and then one that was rated 18.

If your target audience is 18+ then you can do almost anything in your film. Endless bad language, violence, sex, discrimination, drugs, torture, all the other good stuff etc.

The problem in the US is that if something is NC-17 then they cannot market it the same way as a R rated film. Your whole production is going to fail. Because of this producers are constantly being tamed by the fear of losing acclaim.

For the love of god, please remake In Time. It was such an awesome idea executed poorly.

I usually can't stand remakes. The only remake I have seen that I have enjoyed was John Carpenter's The Thing, and that was barely a remake.

True Grit was also very good but I haven't seen the original.

All these American remakes of non-english movies just end up terrible. The Ring was not great, The Grudge was terrible, the upcoming remake of Oldboy looks diluted and pussified, and also I hear they are remaking the French horror film Martyrs...

EDIT: And how could I forget Robocop. They have taken the absurdly violent over-the-top 80's action film and made it into Iron Man 4 for the kiddies. I wonder what Verhoeven film will be next. I swear if they do this to Starship Troopers...

Agree with all of this. However, The Departed wasn't awful for a remake of a foreign-language film. Not looking forward to seeing how bastardised the Oldboy remake will be, though.

Nah, the storyline was shite after the first one.

I really want to see Infernal Affairs just to see how similar they are. I do agree though The Departed was fantastic.

And yeah the only information I can find right now on the Martyrs remake is that it is being directed by Daniel Stamm, who I assume no one has heard of. He has directed two films in his career, one of them being The Last Exorcism...
