The Decade Of Reboots

It seems to me in that for the last few years our writer's are focusing more on rebooting previous hit movies and TV Shows. Such examples of course is A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Ninja Turtles and of course the up coming Beetlejuice and Ghostbusters. I've been thinking a lot about this and the thought occured to me. What if they rebooted The Breakfast Club, for this generation. I can only imagine how the movie would be so different from the original. The times have changed so much that I'm sure it might even be scary. . What actors/Actresses could you see playing the Andrew, Brian, Bender Claire and Allison of today? What do you think they might have done to get in there, and would it hold the same impact as the original?

Writer's are being lazy to write new material and the youth who will only watch classics if they were rebooted or remake. Blame those 2 for making this reign of terror happen. I will also blame Michael Bay,

Exactly. It's laziness. A remake or reboot means most of the work is done. All they have to do is tweak to make it contemporary.

@JohnRoberts I dont mind remakes and adaptations if they respect the source material try to unify the casual audience and the hardcore fans but they always alienate the hardcore fans to get the money of the casuals.

Remaking just need some tweaks. But a new story would need all the things to be done. Filming team just needs money in short time frame. That's why they usually go for remaking of a previous blockbuster.

The need to stick to the originally created storylines, add to it and expand it. Not change everything so that the movie doesn't have the same feel.

I have seen the movies you noted above , but not the Breakfast Club. As an ardent fan of suspense/horror/mystery movies, I would like to watch it soon.

Well The Breakfast Club doesn't exactly sit in any of those Genres but its a classic, and very true to life on some levels.

Don't forget the recent Point Break redo. And Baywatch the movie is coming. And a proposed Men in Black crossover meeting 21 Jump Street!
