    50 Upcoming Hollywood movie remakes!

    Whenever a movie studio announces plans for another remake, the reaction among fans and pundits is always the same: Hollywood doesn’t have any new ideas.

    But we like to look on the bright side of things, which is why we’re so happy when we hear of a cool remake or reboot. Hey, who needs new ideas when there are already so many great old ideas waiting to be rediscovered?

    With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 50 — that’s right, 50! — upcoming Hollywood remakes that tickle our fancy. Because if these films were good the first time, you never know, you might just enjoy them even more the second time around.

    Everett Collection
    ‘Dredd’
    Attached: Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby
    Status: The good news for director Pete Travis (“Vantage Point”) and star Urban (“Star Trek,” “The Lord of the Rings”) is that they won’t have to do much to meet fan expectations; Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 version of “Judge Dredd” is widely considered the low point of his career and led to a decade of flops and cameos. Better news for fans: “28 Days Later” scribe Alex Garland, who is handling the screenplay, has vowed to return to the character’s original, gritty comic book roots. Karl Urban (“The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Trek”) takes over the lead.
    Release Date/Year: September 21, 2012

    ‘Red Dawn’
    Attached: Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan
    Status: Hemsworth (“Thor”) headlines this updating of the 1984 Cold War classic, which this time around features an invasion from China rather than the Soviet Union. First-time director and former stuntman Dan Bradley has kept the rest of the premise intact, so expect to see plenty of heroics from America’s youth as they lead a Midwestern resistance against our commie foes. This film was completed in 2009 and has been delayed several times by its struggling distributor, MGM; with Hemsworth becoming a star, though, it may finally see the light of dawn, so to speak.
    Release Date/Year: November 2, 2012 (supposedly)

    ‘Dirty Dancing’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: The idea of remaking the beloved 1987 hit “Dirty Dancing” may seem kind of crazy — just who are they going to find to fill Patrick Swayze’s shoes, anyway? — but then again, remaking “Footloose” seemed like a bad idea, and that turned out just fine. Plus, “Dirty Dancing” does have “High School Musical” mastermind Kenny Ortega on board to direct, so even though there are no stars attached and the script is currently being rewritten, we have faith things will come together in time for them to meet their aggressive release date.
    Release Date/Year: July 26, 2013

    ‘Akira’
    Attached: Garrett Hedlund, Ken Watanbe
    Status: Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 masterpiece “Akira” is considered one of the seminal films in the history of anime, and animation in general. The cartoon, though, only covered a small portion of the original comic book series, something Warner Bros. is looking to capitalize on with a series of films that presents the entire story — in live action. “Iron Man” scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have written a script that will be filmed by director Jaume Collet-Serra (“Orphan”) beginning in March.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    Columbia Pictures
    ‘Annie’
    Attached: Willow Smith
    Status: Willow Smith is set to take on the role of a precocious girl with a knack for singing and a multi-millionaire daddy. Hmm. But Smith isn’t the only big name attached to the remake of the 1982 hit (which was based on a musical, which was based on a comic strip, which was based on ur mom); not only is her father, Will Smith, coproducing alongside Jay-Z, but Emma Thompson is also on board as the screenwriter. Sounds like a winner.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’
    Attached: Daniel Radcliffe (rumored)
    Status: Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director, the 1930 version of “All Quiet on the Western Front” was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation on its Film Registry. Cool as it is, though, that adaptation of Erich Remarque’s classic novel about the horrors of trench warfare during World War I didn’t feature Harry Potter. This one may not, either: Daniel Radcliffe had been attached, but now has apparently moved on, while the film has signed on director Mimi Leder (“Pay It Forward”), who is looking at a late 2012 shooting date. Whether she can talk Radcliffe into coming back remains to be seen.
    Release Date: 2013

    ‘Carrie’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Back in 1976, audiences shivered at the sight of Sissy Spacek being doused with pig’s blood by a-hole high school students and then taking her revenge through the therapeutic application of telekinesis. Considering how iconic that film has become in the annals of horror movies, remaking it will be a tall task, but MGM is planning to do that, tapping writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” of all things) to craft a more modern, more “grounded” version. At least the director is someone who knows a thing or two about the difficulties that face girls growing up these days; Kimberly Peirce, who directed “Boys Don’t Cry,” is in talks to helm the remake.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘Child’s Play’
    Attached: Brad Dourif
    Status: Universal is keeping the details of their latest deadly doll adventure under close wraps, but we do know that original writer Don Mancini is back on board — and this time around he’ll be directing as well. Also back for another go-round is Brad Dourif, who will once again provide the voice of Chucky. This film was originally slated to be made in 2011, but despite having a completed script, Universal is hedging on whether the film will be made at all; if it is, then 2013 is the earliest date for it.

    ‘Evil Dead’
    Attached: Lily Collins
    Status: Move over, Ash, because there’s a new version of “The Evil Dead” on its way to theaters — and in this one, it’s a femme fatale doing the demon-slaying. Yep: 30-plus years after Sam Raimi’s original “Evil DeaD” introduced the world to Bruce Campbell, director Fede Alvaraz has decided to sidestep comparisons by rejiggering the story to focus on one of the ladies present at the haunted cabin in the woods. And since “Mirror Mirror’s” Lily Collins is going to be playing the new lead character — described as a woman named Mia struggling with addiction — well, we might not forget Ash entirely, but we’re certainly eager to see the 21st century edition as well. You know what they say: Speak softly and carry a big boomstick.

    ‘Fletch Won’
    Attached: Everyone and/or No One
    Status: Everyone from John Cusack to Zach Braff to Chevy Chase himself has been rumored to star in this reboot, which has languished in development hell for well over a decade now. In a sign that hell has frozen over, though, producer Steve Golin (“Babel”) and screenwriter David Mandel have been given the keys to the “Fletch” kingdom by Warner Bros., who apparently are actually going to make this movie. Assuming the Mayans don’t blow up the Earth first.

    ‘House Party’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Way back in 1990, rappers Kid ‘n Play kicked off a surprise franchise with “House Party,” their feel-good ode to getting down and having gigantic hair. The film ended up spawning a number of sequels before finally dying out, but there’s one man who just won’t let the good times end: Brett Ratner, who ironically may be the last person on Earth anybody would want to invite to an actual house party. He’s producing the remake, but so far little progress has been made, making the 2013 release date seem pretty optimistic at this point.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’
    Attached: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz
    Status: Hardy follows up “Inception” and “The Dark Knight Rises” with an even more action-packed role; this new take on Mel Gibson’s classic “Mad Max” reportedly features over 300 different stunts. Gibson isn’t expected to appear in the film, which may be a good thing considering his current status as Hollywood pariah (and his last bomb, “The Beaver”). Filming is set to begin in March.

    ‘My Fair Lady’
    Attached: Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth (rumored)
    Status: Carey Mulligan has a closet full of shoes to fill as Eliza, the working-class girl who is turned into a paragon of the upper crust as part of a social experiment. Not only is she stepping into a role that Audrey Hepburn made famous, she’s also replacing Keira Knightley, who dropped out of the production along with director John Madden. They may be gone, but Oscar winner Colin Firth has been chatting up the possibility of playing male lead Henry Higgins, and we all know how well Firth does when speech therapy is part of the script.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘Oldboy’
    Attached: Mia Wasikowska, Josh Brolin, Clive Owen (rumored)
    Status: Spike Lee might not be the first name that pops into your head when you think of Korean thrillers, but that’s about to change, as Brooklyn’s most famous rabble-rousing cinematic auteur is set to remake the 2003 cult classic “Oldboy.” Casting is currently underway — Clive Owen is the latest to be offered a part, though it’s not yet confirmed whether he will accept or not — so it looks like the world will soon get to see what Lee can do with this creepy story about a father and a daughter and some really bad shiznit that goes down between them and a mystery villain. One of the most intriguing and unlikely remakes in recent memory.

    ‘Pet Sematary’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Stephen King’s classic horror novel “Pet Sematary” is about to get its second adaptation courtesy of “Transformers” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventuara, who has already brought “1408″ scribe Matt Greenberg and “Invasion” writer David Kajhanich on board to pen an R-rated version. Alexandre Aja (“Piranha”) is currently being courted to helm this one, so take that for what it’s worth.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘Point Break’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: The original “Point Break,” which starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves as surfers who moonlight as thieves who moonlight as FBI agents, was directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who since has gone on to win an Oscar. Who will direct and star in the remake is yet to be determined, but we’ll know soon enough. Alcon Entertainment has put the movie on their fast track, and they hope to land a director as soon as possible to rush the film into production for a 2013 release.

    ‘Robocop’
    Attached: Jose Padilha (director)
    Status: Now that MGM is out of financial difficulty and back on its feet, things can proceed on this remake of the classic 1987 sci-fi satire. It will, however, proceed without acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky (“The Wrestler,” “Black Swan”), who dropped out and has been replaced by Jose Padilha; similarly,”Road to Perdition” scribe David Self has been swapped out for newbie Joshua Zetumer.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘Short Circuit’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” director Steve Carr was developing this remake of the 1986 fan favorite about a sentient robot named Johnny Five who goes on the lam. He has since dropped out, but don’t worry, because “Hop” director Tim Hill has stepped in instead. We’ll leave it to you to decide if “Hop” is an upgrade from “Paul Blart” or not. On the plus side, “Robot Chicken” and “Greg the Bunny” scribe Dan Milano has been tapped to write the screenplay, which is being produced by “Collateral Damage’s” David Foster for Dimension Films.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘The Birds’
    Attached: Naomi Watts
    Status: Everything is in place for this big-budget remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1963 horror film “The Birds”: the movie has a director (Dennis Iliadis), a bankable star (Naomi Watts) and a completed screenplay (writers too numerous to mention). What it doesn’t have yet is a greenlight from Universal, which explains why the original 2011 release date has been pushed to 2013 — or maybe further. For a film that’s been in development for nearly six years now, what’s a couple more between friends?

    ‘The Crow’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Despite the fact that no lead has yet been selected, this update of the 1994 goth comic-book adventure is still on track for a 2013 release. Of course, it was firmly on track for a 2011 release, but directors Stephen Norrington (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”) have both since come and gone, forcing the studio to regroup again as legal issues cloud distribution rights. Don’t worry, “Crow” fans; undead goth makeup never goes out of style, so don’t give up hope.
    Release Date/Year: 2013

    ‘The Orphanage’
    Attached: Kaley Cuoco (maybe)
    Status: “The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco is (tentatively) slated to star in this English-language version of the acclaimed Guillermo del Toro-produced 2007 horror film “El Orfanato.” Little-known director Mark Pellington takes over as director, but don’t worry; del Toro is producing again from a script he cowrote.
    Release Date/Year:2013

    ‘A Star Is Born’
    Attached: Beyoncé, Leonardo DiCaprio
    Status: This high-profile remake of the 1954 classic “A Star Is Born,” which tells the very Hollywood story of the revenge, madness and cutthroat backstage politics faced by big-time movie stars, was supposed to already be in production. Then star Beyoncé went and got all preggers and the film, which is being directed by Clint Eastwood, had to be postponed. Still, once her baby bump is an actual baby, things should take off again, maybe even in time for a 2013 release.

    ‘Barbarella’
    Attached: Katherine Heigl (rumored)
    Status: Legendary producer Dino De Laurentis is back with another version of “Barbarella,” the sci-fi sex comedy that he put together for Jane Fonda back in 1969. This time around, Rose McGowan was originally rumored to be taking on the lead role, but appears to have moved on; meanwhile, screenwriter Joe Gazzam is hard at work on a script, which may or may not be directed by Robert Luketic (“The Killers”), hence the Katherine Heigl rumor. Still, the announced 2014 release date seems kind of iffy.
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘Death Note’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: The good news for Warner Bros. regarding its remake of this 2006 Japanese horror hit is that the studio already has a script in hand, from the brother team of Vlas and Charley Parlapanides (“Immortals”). Plus, the original story, about a guy who finds an evil notebook that kills anyone whose name is written inside it, has proven to be popular in everything from manga to anime to live action. And with “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” and “Iron Man 3″ director Shane Black recently tapped to direct, this one looks like it’s about as sure a bet as these things get in Hollywood.
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘Drop Dead Fred’
    Attached: Russell Brand
    Status: When “Drop Dead Fred” hit theaters back in 1991, its blackly funny look at a girl whose life is turned upside down by the return of her now-adult imaginary friend didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. But Universal thinks it can top the original’s $13 million take thanks to the presence of Russell Brand, who is set to play the title character in a new version penned by former “Saturday Night Live” head writer Dennis McNicholas.
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘Starship Troopers’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: “Starship Troopers” is an interesting choice to remake considering the original franchise never actually went away. In fact, a fourth installment in the series about soldiers fighting space bugs in a future created by sci-fi author Robert Heinlein is due to arrive next year. Still, since only hardcore fans have hung around for every direct-to-DVD travesty since the original came out in 1997, maybe the idea of a remake from “X-Men: First Class” and “Thor” writers Edward Miller and Zack Stentz makes sense; after all, it’s obvious the series has long-term potential. Unless you’re a space bug.

    ‘The NeverEnding Story’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Frank Marshall may seem like an unlikely choice to reinvent the 1984 fantasy about a kid who travels to an alternate universe and rides and befriends a giant luckdragon; after all, he’s best known for producing adult fare like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and the “Bourne” series. Still, he has the experience to help untangle the complex legal issues regarding the film rights, and with Leonardo DiCaprio also on board as an executive producer, “The NeverEnding Story” may finally be close to having a beginning.
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘The Seven Samurai’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic “Seven Samurai,” about a group of warriors hired to defend a small town against bandits, has already been remade multiple times in different genres, from the Western version in “Magnificent Seven” to the animated insect version of “A Bug’s Life.” This time, newbie director Scott Mann is straight up redoing the samurai version on behalf of the Weinsteins, meaning this might be the first time copying the original can be considered a fresh take.
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘WarGames’
    Attached:
    Status: Coming off of “Horrible Bosses,” director Seth Gordon had a lot of options. The one he decided to go with? Remaking the 1983 techno-thriller “WarGames,” which starred Matthew Broderick as possibly the world’s first ever hacker — and certainly the first to accidentally cause thermonuclear global warfare. This might be the remake that makes the most sense ever, as today’s technology has finally caught up with the concept. They’re still working on a script, but you know what they say: Give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of iPads …
    Release Date/Year: 2014

    ‘Battle Royale’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: One of the most hotly anticipated horror remakes in recent memory, “Battle Royale” has been languishing in development hell for years. A remake of the shocking 2000 Japanese film of the same name about a group of teenagers forced to fight to the death on a deserted island, “Battle Royale” was tentatively scheduled for 2011 release despite having no director or stars attached. That was a very tentative date, as it turns out — the film’s now looking at a 2015 release, though that could be pushed up if the similarly themed “Hunger Games” ends up becoming a big hit.
    Release Date/Year: 2015

    ‘Time Bandits’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Handmade Films is once again trying to put together a remake of the beloved (and totally weird) 1981 cult hit “Time Bandits,” which featured director Terry Gilliam’s signature style in a typically crazy tale about a kid who falls in with a troupe of time traveling dwarves. The studio has been trying to get this thing going since 2006, but this time they totally plan to get a new version made, swearsies. Hey, if they can time travel, this shouldn’t be an issue, right?

    ‘About Last Night’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Rob Lowe and Demi Moore starred in the original 1986 version of “About Last Night,” which was based on a play by David Mamet about a guy and a lady who try to have an affair even though their friends disapprove. Now the remake is being headed by “Friends With Benefits” writer-director Will Gluck. That seems like a reasonable choice, but nothing else has yet been nailed down about this remake, which is still in the early stages.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘American Psycho’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: It’s barely been a decade since the original “American Psycho” shocked audiences with Christian Bale’s iconic performance as Bret Easton Ellis’ titular murderous nutjob, but Lionsgate figures the time is right for a new take on the story, set in post-9/11 New York instead of the yuppie excesses of the ’80s. Noble Lincoln Jones is set to make his directorial debut in this ultra low-budget remake. Sounds a little … psycho … to us, but maybe Jones and company are just crazy like a fox.

    ‘An American Werewolf in London’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Producer Sean Furst knows a thing or two about horror remakes, having helped bring “Let Me In” and “The Crazies” updates to the screen. He and his brother, coproducer Bryan Furst, have optioned “An American Werewolf in London” and have hired “The Number 23″ writer Fernley Phillips to pen the screenplay. Decisions about cast and crew are awaiting the script’s completion.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Commando’
    Attached: Writer-director David Ayer
    Scoop: “Training Day” writer David Ayer has written a revamped, modernized take on the 1985 Arnold Schwarzenegger “classic” about a killer mercenary who mows down dozens of a-holes to rescue his kidnapped daughter. He’s also eager to direct it. For now, though, 20th Century Fox is still trying to find an actor who can fill The Governator’s shoes. It could be a long wait.
    Release Date: Unknown

    ‘Creature From the Black Lagoon’
    Attached: Channing Tatum (rumored)
    Status: “Creature From the Black Lagoon” has been going through a bit of a creative carousel, as first time director Carl Rinsch was supposed to have the job after “Sahara” director Breck Eisner passed. Screenwriter Gary Ross penned the updated script and is the son of original “Creature From the Black Lagoon” writer Arthur Ross — and since Ross is currently in the process of directing “The Hunger Games,” there’s every chance he may end up stepping in to help this passion project himself. When he’ll have the time is an issue, though, so there’s not even a tentative release date on this one yet.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Death Wish’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Ever since Charles Bronson’s original “Death Wish” hit theaters in 1974, its tale of a man seeking revenge for the death of his family has become the basic template for an entire genre, rendering a remake almost inevitable. Sly Stallone had been attached as director and star, but that’s been put on hold for the time being. “Death Wish” isn’t DOA just yet though, as “Terminator 3″ and “Terminator Salvation” writer John D. Brancato has been tapped to write the script. The wheels of progress turn slowly.

    ‘Escape From New York’
    Attached: Timothy Olyphant or Bradley Cooper
    Status: Fresh from his success reworking the cult horror film “The Crazies,” director Breck Eisner has turned his attention to John Carpenter’s sci-fi nightmare “Escape From New York,” which imagines a future where the Big Apple is a giant prison. Olyphant and Cooper are currently under consideration to take over Kurt Russell’s role as one-eyed badass Snake Plissken, but no deal has yet been signed with either. Plus, New Line dropped out, leaving Breck with everything except a studio where he can make the movie. Which is a problem.

    ‘Heavy Metal’
    Attached: Jack Black
    Status: David Fincher leads a legion of high-profile directors trying to pull together this anthology remake of the 1981 sci-fi film based on the comic-book magazine of the same name. James Cameron, Zack Snyder, Gore Verbinski and Kevin Eastman are just some of the other directors in the mix to film short segments; Jack Black has also been confirmed, though in what role it’s hard to guess. The project does currently lack two essentials: a distributor and financier. But considering Fincher is planning on working with the animator who created the mind-blowing title sequence for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” don’t count this one out just yet.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Lethal Weapon’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Joel Silver, who produced the original “Lethal Weapon” franchise, is back on board for the Warner Bros. remake. Will Beall, who cut his teeth writing for the hit TV series “Castle,” is also signed up as writer. Who will star — or when it will be made, or who will direct, or pretty much everything else — is still unknown pending the script being completed.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Overboard’
    Attached: Jennifer Lopez, Julian Scott Urena
    Status: J.Lo is set to take time out from her “American Idol” judging gig to star in the remake of the 1989 romantic comedy that originally paired real-life couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as a mismatched pair that meets cute (sorta) after she tumbles off a ship. Will Smith is producing.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Porky’s’
    Attached: Howard Stern! Sort of.
    Status: Howard Stern has been ramrodding this remake of the raunchy 1981 teenage sex comedy through the system, with little success to show for it. In 2010 a script was completed, but before production could be started, a bunch of legal wrangling got the project stuck in limbo again. If Stern gets his way, things will kick off shortly; if not, he’ll have to wait until 2014 for a chance to get the rights again. We’re keeping our eye to the legal peephole and will report on progress as soon as it happens.

    ‘Romancing the Stone’
    Attached: Katherine Heigl (rumored), Gerard Butler (rumored)
    Status: 20th Century Fox is still in the early stages of this remake of the 1984 adventure movie that starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner as an unlikely couple who spars over a giant gemstone. “Killers” director Robert Luketic was rumored to be eying the film as a possible vehicle for Katherine Heigl — possibly opposite Heigl’s “The Ugly Truth’ costar Gerard Butler — but Luketic has reportedly moved on, leaving “Eagle Eye” writer Dan McDermott’s “Romancing the Stone” screenplay up in the air for now.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Scarface’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Screenwriter David Ayer (“Training Day”) has a big task ahead of him in his effort to craft a modern remake of “Scarface.” But before you start whipping out your “little friend” jokes, consider this: Al Pacino’s 1983 version of “Scarface” was itself a remake of a 1932 gangster film. So this isn’t exactly blasphemy, it’s more like inevitability. Ayer just began work a couple months ago, so this one is still a long way off. Now, go ahead and start quoting.

    ‘The Bodyguard’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Dan Lin may not be a household name outside of, you know, his own house, but as the producer of the “Sherlock Holmes” series, he has some industry clout. And he’s using it to spearhead this revival of the 1992 hit that starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston as two people in love with Whitney Houston’s voice. He’s got a couple of relative unknowns working on the script (Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer), but otherwise, this one is still too early to call. Finding someone who can belt out Houston’s anthem “I Will Always Love You” is going to be tricky.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘The Phantom Tollbooth’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: “Seabiscuit” writer-director-producer Gary Ross had been developing this reimagination of the 1970 Chuck Jones animated feature, which itself is an adaptation of the beloved children’s fantasy book by Norton Juster. Then something called “The Hunger Games” diverted his attention. Wonder why? Like the Jones version, this new edition will feature a mix of live action and animation to tell the story of a boy who travels to a magical world. Alex Tse (“Watchmen”) has been given the task of adapting the book for the big screen, so that should be interesting.

    ‘The Warriors’
    Attached: Brenna Roth
    Status: Director Tony Scott is no stranger to remakes, having helmed “Taking of Pelham 1 2 3″ and produced “The A-Team.” His latest effort takes on the seminal 1979 gang flick “The Warriors;” this time around, the action has been moved from New York to Los Angeles for the story of a group of gang members who have to make their way through enemy territory to escape a bogus murder rap. A script has been completed, but with Scott literally working on dozens of properties simultaneously, there’s no telling which will get the fast track first.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘The Wild Bunch’
    Attached: N/A
    Status: Despite the total lack of success of last year’s “Straw Dogs,” Warner Bros. is still pushing forward with its remake of another Sam Peckinpah film, the truly classic “The Wild Bunch.” Considering many people view “The Wild Bunch” as one of the seminal films of the 20th century — and considering everyone up to and including Quentin Tarantino has borrowed heavily from it in the years since — making a truly fresh version could be a major challenge. Regardless, Tony Scott has optioned the film and is working on figuring out how to make it. Good luck, sir.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Westworld’
    Attached: Russell Crowe
    Status: Crowe is rumored to be attached to this updating of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi cautionary adventure, which tells the story of two people who, after becoming trapped in a futuristic theme park, are hunted by the park’s animatronic cast members. As you might guess, this isn’t a Disney film; Warner Bros. is currently working with “The Karate Kid” producer Jerry Weintraub to get it ready for production, with “The Hunger Games” scribe Billy Ray doing the writing chores.
    Release Date/Year: Unknown

    ‘Yellow Submarine’
    Attached: Cary Elwes, Peter Serafinowicz, Adam Campbell, Dean Lennox Kelly
    Status: Perhaps the strangest Hollywood remake yet, “Yellow Submarine” is a big budget 3-D animated reworking of the classic Beatles cartoon from 1968. “Beowulf” director Robert Zemeckis brings his patented motion capture, photo-realistic rendering of live action actors to this new version. Ambitious to say the least, but maybe too ambitious; after “Mars Needs Moms” tanked at the box office last year, Disney pulled out of “Yellow Submarine,” and Zemeckis is currently looking for a new studio to help finish this one up.
