I'm not against remakes, but this is one where I don't even know why they bother trying.
Every so often, someone wants to bring anthologies back. But anthologies are a tough sell these days, so it makes sense to go with an established, successful name. And the most successful SF/fantasy anthologies, the ones that are best remembered today, were The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, with the former tending more toward fantasy and the latter more toward SF. So those are the names it's natural to gravitate toward.
Unfortunately, it's also completely natural to take that concept and brutally rape it repeatedly with each remake.

Leave it the hell alone.
I'm sure Bill Shakes with fear of his Peers laughing at him over West Side Story or Tromeo and Julie Ate or Rome0 and Julie8 or Zeffireli's Whiting/Hussey 1967 Romeo and Juliet
