I don't understand why adverts bother to tell us that some movie has the same producer as another movie. "He helped pay for this other film that you liked so our new film is bound to be good with him paying for it too!"

Don't f*ck with my cult classic!

Heh, you imagine pretty well. Escape From New York got a remake treatment and was even greenlit by New Line, but ran into problems. The project is currently up in the air.

I wouldn't mind Red Dawn. I think there should be a Red Dawn made every decade but updated for the biggest threats of the day.

Then they would be Bond movies.

Not enough teenage angst.

The new "Red Dawn". Now that's a movie I'd like to see. Picture coddled, whiny, 21st century American teenagers vs. let's say the Taliban. The don't even have to parachute in BECAUSE THEY ARE ALREADY HERE! In one huge coordinated strike they attack office buildings across the land killing or capturing most of the parents while simultaneously cutting power and seizing key government installations. Then a group of hardcore Gears players starts organizing the resistance as the Taliban start forcing everybody under Sharia Law. I can imagine the battlecries even now -- "For Xbox and America!!" YES!! Somebody make this movie PLEASE!

I mean all the theme's in these movies have long past.
