I can't imagine Star Wars ever being remade.

It'll probably happen (eventually...), but I just can't imagine it, or what it would be like.


I reckon it will be, and sooner rather than later. I bet it happens in next 20 years.

I always thought the prequels should have been made for the now grown up kids who watched the originals as nippers.

A grown up Star Wars remake might be good - in about twenty years as you say - that'd be ... what... 50 years from the first one coming out, so it'd not be sacrilegious.

What would be sacrilegious, however, would be remaking Zulu.

It would be a shame if they tried to re-do some of the older classic like sound of music

You think so? I've always thought that it's had far too big an impact on popular culture for someone to dare remake it. At least not until the people who saw it originally are much older.

Yeah, Lucas owns Star Wars, lock, stock and bottom-of-the-barrel. No-one's allowed to fuck it up but him...

Most films are remake-able ,to a degree, but trying to create something that the original maybe had with regards to depth,feeling/emotion and a certain originality and fresh prominence,then it'll be difficult.

Classics such as 2001-Space Odyssey,Alien,Blade Runner,Citizen Kane,Star Wars,ET,Gone With The Wind,Wizard Of Oz etc will be very hard to capture and create the same level of infilm-design and depth it has to the audience/fans and itself.
The great thing about these films above and other notable classics is the fact that you get a stronger feeling that you are witnessing more than just a film.,a creation that carries a soul.

Now there's been remakes being made left-right-and-center but most never live up to there predecessors.
As the saying goes,you can make a remake of a crap film but never a great one.

I've rambled on abit and most likely I've made very little sense.lol.

I really can't see it happening unless Lucas' children somehow squander the family fortune.

I think Zulu is ripe for a revisionary remake considering we know more about what actually happened now (there was an excellent Timewatch doc about it a few years ago) and sensibilities have changed somewhat since the sixties. As long as it wasn't directed by Lord Guy Ritchie and didn't star Danny Bloody Dire!*

I have to agree with Chris here. Caine was fantastic and everything but image those battle scenes updated: it could be incredible.

I'd have Peter Weir or Mallick directing it. Who to replace Caine with is another question....
