    Upcoming Remakes

    I read about some upcoming movie remakes that are either in the process of production or they will be starting this year. Some titles include...

    The Lion King (live action remake by Disney)
    Universal's Monsterverse
    IT (the horror clown film)
    Tomb Raider
    Escape From New York
    The Crow
    Oceans's Eight

    There are a few others as well but nothing I would know about.
    Are you interested in any of these remakes? Do you plan on watching any of them?

    I'm not sure about a live action Lion King...I just don't feel like Lion King would translate well into a live action movie. Other than that, I don't mind the others. The original It was amazingly not scary, imo, and It'd be interesting to see another Ocean's movie.

    I would be looking forward to Ocean's 8. I do love watching heist films and I'm hoping they wouldn't ruin this one. About Lion King, I bet it would be a good one since the tech they are using right now is great already, so turning animated films into live action ones would also be good. I've watched the first Crow movie and it was really good. I hope the new one would be a lot better than the first one.

    I hate to be the negative nancy here but I think none of these remakes are going to be worth anything. IT looks like it's going to be nothing more than a generic jump scare fest and the Lion King remake...I'm sorry but doing it live action with CGI animals is not an inspired enough reason. If you're going to remake something, you would need to do something styleistically and tonally different from the original (Like The Fly or The Thing remakes for instance. Hell, even the Bad Lieutenent remake too.) . Here, it sounds like going to be the same movie but they're going to fix that pesky 2d animation problem of the original with CGI! If the Beauty and The Beast remake is of any indication, it's probably going to be corporate, made by commitee filmmaking. The one that gets me though is the Escape From New York remake. I don't think there is any modern actor who could do Snake Pliskin justice, not to mention they will probably take away the film's hard edge and fill it with "homages" that just reminds you of a better movie that you'd rather be watching. Most of these remakes are probably going to be like the Total Recall, Robocop and Ghostbusters remakes before them where it comes out, people might talk about it for a week or two, and then they will forget about it's existence and then the movies will fade into obscurity.

    Pretty much everything Starwind55 said. I can't think of a single time a movie remake did the original film any justice. Usually they just turn out to be watered-down derivatives lacking what made the original enjoyable in the first place.
