I watched the original a lot when I was kid. My Uncle worked for RCA and we got discounted stuff from him so we had a videodisc player. This was one of the movies that my brother and I watched so frequently that the disc ended up being unplayable.
I hope they keep the robot design something similar to the movie. I loved Vincent and Bob and their simplistic bodies.
Me as well. A remake of this film - done well - really has some potential and it could be scary as well because the revelation that the crew were the robots with a modern twist of some goolishness could make this not only a great sci-fi pic but a horror picture as well.
IIRC [haven't watched it in a while] the special effects were outstanding and groundbreaking and even by today's standards still watchable.
