Default What films would you like to see remade?

Hi everyone,

I personally have a hard time when good films are remade into a less than shiny re-telling, however, I have been watching some older films recently and noticed that even though they aren't the greatest (even for the day) the stories themselves still hold up and could be "modernized" easily and made into a relatively good film today with better dialog, better actors, better directors, etc.

So I was wondering about others' opinions about films they think would make a good remake. Wolfen (1981) is one I would like to see re-done.

Thoughts?

I always thought that the Michael Caine/Shirley Maclaine movie Gambit could be updated nicely. I believe that one was planned a few years ago, but I don't think it ever came out.

Another that could be remade is the Jane Fonda/Vanessa Redgrave movie Julia, which I saw recently and thought was excellent.

I love the old musicals too. (meet me in st. louis is my fav)

La La Land certainly proved that musicals are "liked" again, so remakes of old musicals could work.
