I have heard they're also talking about remaking Misfits as well. Which seems entirely pointless as it's supposed to be a British take on the American myths of superheroes.
I'm sure there's more to the premise of Misfits than that. A one sentence description that is different than Alphas or Heroes. American remakes often use the original idea as a starting point. Like how the distinctively Israeli story of Prisoners of War, inspired by true events, became a thriller bears little resemblance to the original show.
