The next major film franchise to get a reboot? Die Hard

I remember a time when Disney, along with other major film studios, were institutions of art and not recycling centers.

Some of the problem is that most of the adult drama stuff heads straight to streaming now.

Theaters have become mostly the domain of the loud CGI blockbusters

Sure a lot of quality TV out there now. Big movie stars doing TV. I enjoy those shows despite not being on the TV screen.

Couple of decades ago a show like Cherynobol would have been made as a movie. The TV mini-series allowed them to show us the culture and system of government that in reality caused the meltdown.

I think the last movie we went to see in the theater was The Departed.

Well, it worked so well with other time capsule hit action films like Total Recall and Robocop, it's totally worth it!

Okay, can someone point to an 80's/early 90's action property remade in the past 15 years that worked?

I'm not against remaking films, as some of my favorite films are remakes (scarface, the Thing) but I don't get this. Willis caught lightning in a bottle and Rickman went from nobody to a legit actor with this one role. Unless you can duplicate THAT, there's no point. Their performances made the movie what it was. It's not even fair to ASK actors to follow that.

I think what they need to understand is that alot of these movies don't age well from the 80's. Premises of movies worked really well back then, but now, audiences expectations of a movie going experience have changed.

Slightly different, but presaged by this from last year



I mean, both of these are adaptations of existing properties, so the narrative has been around for a while. Just seems like they're funneling a shitload of the same stories into the feature release chute ATM. Could be a timing thing, like how the asteroid movies and earthquake movies and White House under attack movies seem to pile up on each other from time to time.

The Fletch 'reboot' has been percolating so long that the highest profile named replacement Fletch [Sudekis] went from unknown to star to already aging out the role.

Fletch is a little different from all but Indiana Jones [which since the beginning has been a revival of the old weekly serials which has been around from the beginnning of cinema].

Fletch is a narrative property, with a number of novels at its disposal. So the closest analogy for it in terms of rebooting is Sherlock Holmes or Inspector Clouseau.

Might as well gender flip that too then?

Melissa McCarthy as Fletch?

How has Die Hard not aged well?

The problem is Die Hard has been copied by a thousand other movies already and if they do one without Willis as McClaine it becomes indistinguishable from all of the rabble rip-offs it inspired.

Pretty far afield from the point I was making.

There's a difference between rebooting an existing work where you reimagine the same story told a different way, and reviving an existing work that already has a bunch of storylines that never got told.

Rebooting Casablanca, or The Godfather, is dumb because the entire story has been told and told pretty darn well.

Reviving Sherlock, or Fletch, or heck The Avengers [you ARE aware that there was an Avengers before the Avengers of today, right?], in order to realize a catalog of stories is different.

It can still go wrong, as can any translation from page to screen, but it's still different.
