Or they can simply make up a new story following the events of Dawn. There's no rule that says they have to remake all of the earlier movies . . ..
Oh sure they could do something totally original...but does that sound like something Hollywood is liable to do these days?
Well, Dr. Watson is now an Asian-American woman, and Frankenstein is a hunky, demon-fighting warrior, and Dracula is a steampunk inventor fighting an evil oil cartel, so I wouldn't say modern Hollywood is exactly adverse to making radical changes to old stories . . .
Aren't they all TV shows though, rather than big budget Hollywood movies?
