It may seem like Hollywood has lost all of its originality, but that’s not the case. They’re coming up with ALL KINDS of creative, new ways to remake or ‘reboot’ the same old existing movies and shows. (???)
DenOfGeek.com has a list of ‘116 Movie Remakes and Reboots Currently in the Works’ . . . and after a few minutes of scrolling, you’d think they might have been better off just listing the movies that aren’t being remade.
The site puts this list out every year or so, and they carry over a lot of the information, so not all of it is up to date, but it’s fairly accurate for the most part.
Some of the “new” movies in the pipeline include ones based on: “The Birds”, “Blade”, “Blue Thunder”, “The Crow”, “Escape from New York”, “Flatliners”, “The Fugitive”, “Ghost in the Shell”, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” . . .
“Little Women”, “Murder on the Orient Express”, “Nightmare on Elm Street”, “Ocean’s Eleven”, “Predator”, “Scarface”, “Tomb Raider”, and just about every animated Disney movie has a ‘live-action’ version in the works.
The list will make you mad…
