Movies from this century that are being remade already

It remakes every other remake is a remake remakely.  I mean, it seems every other movie is a remake recently. But these franchises and their studios really have balls ~rebooting these franchises from after the Twin Towers fell, and some from even after our country fell when Orangeump was elected president.  As Looper writes...

The Grudge (2002)

After two follow-up films of increasingly waning success, Sony is rebooting the franchise with a new film to premiere in January 2020. Directed by Nick Pesce, the film boasts an impressive coast of horror movie veterans. We've got Lin Shaye of Insidious, Andrea Riseborough of Mandy, and Demián Bichir of The Nun. Plus, there's John Cho (Searching), William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), Betty Gilpin (Glow), and Frankie Faison (The Wire). On top of all that, Sam Raimi of Evil Dead fame is going to co-produce.

The Chronicles of Narnia, aka Fooling You Into Anglicanism (last movie 2010)

... The films continued to be popular in both theatrical and DVD releases, but it wasn't sufficient enough success to warrant another one. The fourth film, The Silver Chair, was scrapped altogether. But now that Game of Thrones is over, there's a great big fantasy-shaped hole for Hollywood to fill. And since Aslan fans have been waiting for the lion's return for quite a while, it looks like Netflix is going to reboot the Narnia series, in both TV and movie form. Yeah, that's right. We're getting Narnia films and an upcoming TV series, which means Netflix is about to become a truly magical place.

Green Lantern (2011)

It's only been eight years since that flop hit screens, but now, DC is bringing the Lantern back. Preliminary reports note that the film's working title is Green Lantern Corps., and the screenplay is being written by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns (who also wrote Aquaman and Wonder Woman 1984). Johns is well aware of the various missteps from the first film, and he's working to make sure those aren't repeated in his new screenplay. Of course, the film is still incredibly early in the pre-production process, which is probably a good thing. It gives us some extra time to forget all about that disastrous first film.

Resident Evil (last movie 2016)

For a moment there, it looked like the Resident Evil franchise was coming to an end with The Last Chapter, but just like that, a new reboot is already in the works. The news broke during Cannes Film Festival 2018 when it was announced that Johannes Roberts of 47 Meters Down will write and direct the new film... As for Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich, she's been vocal about her displeasure with the news, voicing suspicions that the producers are doing this just for money and not for love of the game or the film fans. It sounds like there may be some bad zombie blood behind the scenes.

Pirates of the Caribbean (last movie 2017)

This bullshit.

Iron Man (2008)


Other five and further info at source

ontd, why don't they ever remake movies that didn't deserve the shitty adaptation they got, like the Airbender movie?
