A few of us were discussing earlier whether Star Wars was too good for studios to dare to remake it. While I felt a studio would love to I’ve struggled to find examples of truely great films that have been remade. Suggestions so far:
-Seven Samurii (remade as the western The Magnificent Seven which is apparently itself going to be remade soon)
-The Big Sleep
Any other suggestions of films that have been / will be remade which were done pretty much perfectly the first time? (We were overlooking the big comic book franchises as they seem to recycle themselves almost continually).
