- Reaction score
There's a new audience who won't bother with films that are twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, etc years old, and if they succeeded before, then a remake is theoretically supposed to succeed with that new audience. Never mind that the tinkering that goes on dismantles the magic that made the originals special in the first place. It's all about chasing profits, finding a formula to make money.I don't understand why anyone would try to remake these films anyway.
I see Ben Wheatley is supposed to be remaking Hitchcock's Rebecca - or Du Maurier's Rebecca, if you prefer. Love the original, presumably a remake will put the sex back in.
