If you're getting that feeling of deja vu, it's because there's more of Hollywood's lack of originality on the way. Besides the ones we've previously mentioned, expect these additional regurgitations coming soon to theaters near you:
The Day the Earth Stood Still, an update to the 1951 classic, this time starring Keanu Reeves.
1984, updated from the 1965 version, which doesn't even make sense. It's supposed to be about the future, yet it's titled 1984 and its expected release is 2009??
Barbarella, this time starring Rose McGowen as the title character.
Land of the Lost, a remake of the popular 1974 TV series.
Star Trek, directed by J.J. Abrams.
The legendary cult fave The Rocky Horror Picture Show is in the works, much to the chagrin of Susan Sarandon.
The Birds starring Naomi Watts.
The Wolf Man, a remake of the 1941 classic.
Friday the 13th, called a 'reboot', not a remake -- but the lack of originality is still there.
The A-Team, in production since the mid-1990's, is finally set to be released in 2009.
Robocop, which is being kept hush-hush as to whether it will be a "re-imagining," a sequel, or a remake.
There's also talks about remakes of "Dune" and "Nightmare on Elm Street." And don't forget all the sequels!
Jurassic Park IV
Lethal Weapon 5
Pink Panther 2 (which is a shameful sequel to a remake of the original Peter Sellers comedy)
Night at the Museum 2
Fast and the Furious
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Toy Story 3
Alvin and the Chipmunks 2
Iron Man 2
Shrek Goes Fourth
Beverly Hills Cop IV
...and more Spiderman movies...
The list goes on and on as the years go by...Anyone heard of any others??
