^ Here's more info on that.

It makes a little more sense, now.

Hmm..... Intriguing. Hope they don't find a way to screw that up.

Without remakes, do you guys have any idea how many awesome movies we wouldn't have! I'm willing to bet that for some of the people who complain about remakes, they have at least one movie that is one of their favourites that is a remake in some way. And they might not even know it!
Ben-Hur and The Wizard of Oz are among the best examples. Don't get me wrong... I don't abhor remakes all-together, but the recent trend of remaking horror classics from the 70's and 80's hasn't exactly produced a lot of gems. One of the main flaws these films all seem to have is that they try to be TOO different from the originals, and then end up missing out on what made those movies work in the first place. That being said, the link that Spiff provided tends to make things sound like MAYBE.... just MAYBE the filmmakers for the NOES remake have their shit together.
