Ethros, "just leave it" is in no one's vocabulary in Hollywood.

We'll see a reboot of Back to the Future in our lifetime, for example.
You're probably right. But then it's not like there have been remakes of Citizen Kane, Casablanca, It's A Wonderful Life, Gone With The Wind, etc

I guess it's just something about the SF/F genre
It's A Wonderful Life...Hmmm...Are you sure there hasn't been any remakes, or Re-imaginings with Different Names. It will be amazing, if there really have been Zero reuses of the story.

Casablanca wasn't the 1942 "Definitive Version" the second or third version it? (There's a 1955 and a 1983 TV Series) and there's a few movies with names that suggest they could be Sequels and/or alternate versions listed on IMDB. I seem to recall either Ben Maciewicz or Robert Osbourne mentioned at least one, if not two or more other versions of Casablanca, at least one of them prior to it. (Though maybe, I'm misremembering?)
