Who would you rebirth?!?

With my recent trip to see The Incredible Hulk and pouring over this week’s episode of Entertainment Weekly I had a thought about recent movie making trends. The old saying “Nothing new under the sun” has always been spoken about movies sharing similar plots and lessons etc. We even love to see movies that have been remade. However, recently it seems like the trend is “rebirthing” a movie or franchise. Whether we’re looking at this year’s release of The Incredible Hulk or 2006’s Casino Royale or the perhaps the most notorious rebirth of them all, 2005’s Batman Begins it’s clear that movie makers are desiring a crack at a known character without the precedence set before them.

It’s not so much a revamp of an old classic like Peter Jackson did for King Kong. It’s not even a replicate like Made of Honor was for My Best Friend’s Wedding. It’s like completely wiping the slate clean and starting from scratch.

So I ask you:

If you could rebirth any movie or franchise, what would it be?
What would you like to see reborn?

    Great question.

    As blasphemous as this sounds, I’d love to see a modern makeover of the Godfather series.

    Can you imagine the cinematography?

    Wow! I’d love to see who would have the stones to attempt that! It’s be incredible though I agree!
