We touched on this on a few recent conversations in the various film threads. Some remakes are pointless or make a bad fist of it.
If you were a Hollywood producer that could to take on any property or idea and had access to any talent you wanted, what would you make? Who would do it?
Transformers - writer and director Duncan Jones. Reading the IDW comics the interesting part is seeing a more nuanced view of both sides and the futility of the endless conflict. While it had its limitations due to the rather generic source material I thought Warcraft handled that well and refreshingly. It would be mostly a voice cast so I don’t have any huge preferences but that may be different for other properties.
