Love it?  Hate it?  Doesn't matter, Hollywood doesn't really care anyway.

And in related news, the studio is also looking at a few other classic films as potential remake material:

  • Warner Bros. is looking at revisiting the Tarzan franchise for a live-action version of the man-raised-by-apes story. Disney's 1999 version proved there's still interest in the concept and the kids who enjoyed that animated feature are grown now creating a ready-made audience. Seems like a natural fit despite the long-forgotten (and excessively titled) 1984, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.
  • Based on the current success of True Grit, the studio is hoping to take another stab at the western genre, possibly remaking Sam Pekinpah's 1969 hit, The Wild Bunch. Take it easy though, Warner. Those films succeeded because of the filmmakers attached, not because they are westerns. But do it right and people will come.
  • Warner is also looking at a remake of the classic Yul Brenner robot sci-fi thriller, Westworld.

Come on guys! Where's the originality?
