I would like to see a remake of Highlander, with the right casting, tweak the story but keep the main gist of the immortals, beheading and gathering could be pretty epic, and done in a much more grisly way.

Ronin? Thirded. That film is a masterpiece on so many levels.
Agreed. Leon and True Romance are not to be touched either. Can you imagine two other people doing the Walken/Hopper scene in True Romance? HA!!!!
Even though it was directed by Tony Scott, it is very much a Tarantino movie. Very little of Tarantino's original script was changed for the movie, which was verg unusual in the early 90s.

Speaking of John Reno, Leon absolutely CANNOT be remade. Or True Romance.
Speaking of the great Luc Besson, The Fifth Element, like the Ark of the Covenant, should only be touched at the risk of one's own life.

As they recently did a remake of Ben-Hur (which is awful as you'd imagine it was) I wouldn't put it past Hollywood to do a remake of The Ten Commandments.
Ugh. Agreed. I foresee some politically correct steaming pile full of social reform agendas. "Let's make Moses a woman."

Well, they didn't do that with the Ben-Hur remake. It was just bad. Even Morgan Freeman in a dodgy dreadlock wig couldn't save it.

Speaking of the great Luc Besson, The Fifth Element, like the Ark of the Covenant, should only be touched at the risk of one's own life.
Agreed. It's so much fun. And kickass. And cheesy. And weird. And wonderful. And I love it. Definitely one of those movies that could be made in the 90s.

That being said I agree. The Fifth Element is one of those where it would be fantastic or absolutely destroy the soul of the original. seconded.

Even despite some cinematic failures, this movie ranks high on my Love-It List. It's just timelessly awesome. Part of me wanted more films that expanded that movie-verse, but at the same time I'm scared that it would end up being too close to the FE, or worse ruining it. Like maybe a prequel that highlighted Dallas' service record. Undecided

Same here I always wanted to know more about the world and the creatures. I think now it’s too late, but I wouldn’t mind some books or graphic novels to flesh some things out more.

isn't it strange that a movie like Valerian and the City of 1000 Planets flopped and hasn't even managed cult status, and yet The Fifth Element has. I think the main differences between the two are T5E is fun and cheesy and doesn't take itself too seriously, while Valerian was so concerned with being visually spectacular and weird (like the comic) that it forgot to be fun and cheesy.

My next pick for a movie that could be remade may be controversial as I love the original and the tv multiple series it span-off: Stargate.
Don't get me wrong, like I said, I love the original movie and absolutely adore SG-1 and Atlantis. And even Universe had found its rhythm just before it got cancelled. But as the shows showed us, there is a lot of mythology there. And who doesn't love a good story surrounding Egyptian mythology?

I think enough time has gone by that a truly appreciative director could do something good with this idea. If I were doing it, I would put emphasis in copying the production style (don't try to improve), and focus on the story instead of pushing boundaries.

Second the veto!  As was said in a certain person's .signature file back when Highlander II: The Quickening was released...

^^^Yes. This! Although, I did like the Highlander tv series as it didn't contradict anything from the first movie. Plus some of the scene transitions in that movie are amazing. And of course, casting a Scotsman to play an Egyptian Spaniard in a movie set in Scotland. Genius! And the Queen soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful at times.

Same.  I felt the TV Series kind of served as a "reboot".  Better acting, choreography and expanded the lore.  Fun Fact:  The Creators of Highlander did not WANT to do a sequel...but the studio wanted one and leaned heavily on the production.  After the success of the TV series they were given more leeway with the third which is why it ignores part 2 entirely.  Honestly I Wouldn't be opposed to a Highlander Remake IF I knew only the effects, acting and choreography was going to be updated and the story would remain

That's too big an "IF" in my book.

So began furthering the apprentice's training last night with Pitch Black, and thought..."Riddick Trilogy (soon to be quad Grin) can't be touched."
