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?
I, Frankenstein is an upcoming movie, and lord knows the Tim Burton versions of Sleepy Hollow and Alice in Wonderland played fast and loose with the original stories.

And, heck, Rise was a pretty radical reinvention of the old Apes movies.
