Intro:

I guess there is no movie dude, who never thought: "This movie should be remade". If there would be a nowerdays remake of one of these titles below, except for a new cast, a new director would have to be chosen. The director can be chosen on different matters, e.g. showing a new view on the story. Which of these fictional remakes below would you most likely want to be made? Please pick your favorite remake by also considering the mentioned titles of the filmographies and - of course - the mentioned benefit of it. Free your mind here.

Rules for Suggestions:

Only movies rated between 4.9/10 to 6.9/10

Form:

(Pick a movie)

Wish:_________(Name of the director you would suggest for the fictional remake)
Former titles: __(Examples of movies that show the abilities of your picked remake-director)

Good poll idea and some really interesting suggestions. I think a remake of Conan the Barbarian (1982) bus this time directed by Peter Jackson with some 'Lord of the Rings' elements would be quite fun to look forward to!

I put down the 6.9/10-rule. The range of suggestions is too limited with that.

If there are more persuasive suggestions, I might skip one

But these should be very tempting options. :)

great idea, the idea of ​​Armageddon remade by Darren Aronofsky seems very good to me
