Poll Suggestion: IMDb Poll Board User's Fictional Remakes by Other Directors

Based on the highly interest of the Poll Board users, I created a second, only to 35 options limited  list.

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. This is the second part of this fictional remakes series.

Rules:

Every user has 2 suggestions. Please only serious suggestions. I will deny suggestions if I think it doesn't fit. Convince me with your good ideas, please. It doesn't cost you to try! ;D

Charlie's Angels, 2019.
Wish Director: Ben Stiller
Former Directing Titles: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Tropic Thunder
Benefit: A witty spoof of the show, set in the 70's, having fun with the style and sound of the decade.

Actually, please change my director to Arlene Sanford (director of A Very Brady Sequel).  I think she has the talent for wit and great 70's humor, also without making it too raunchy.

Done.
Let me know, if you want any other change on it.

Arlene Sanford for action genre?

Looks like an experiment. Well, Charlies Angels never were that hard action like Jason Staham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger. I guess NIA wanted a more funny than action packed version. That's ok by me. But NIA, MAthePA is right when he thinks that a strong lack of action might be too less for many people. ;)
Maybe you even would choose another candidate later?

Thank you, Breu.  :)  She just did great on nailing Brady Bunch; I think maybe combined with the talents of the rest of the crew, she could do a hilarious job spoofing 70's Angels!

Breu,
you can move my Beast Must Die idea to this list.  It's one I'm pretty passionate about, and I think it would fit in this list best.  Plus it will free up a spot in the other one for someone with a more popular idea to use.  Thank you.  :)

Yes, ok. But first I have to find another option for the first list. That's because I declared it as full and ready to go. Give me some time. I'll think about another movie I'll put on the first list. Afterwards I'll put your 'Beast'-suggestion to the second list. :)

Breu, I'm back and I have a great idea that occurred to me after seeing these two movies and comparing them for no reason, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Jumper (2008)
Director wish: Josh Tank
Former Titles: Chronicle
Benefit: A more developed story with deeper characters, who really feel the use without control and excess of powers creating internal problems in the most interesting characters with a philosophical essence

Joe & Stephen:
Thank you both. I will consider your suggestions. But please give me a little time. It's again very hot here. We actually got the next heatwave. Today it's 29°C, means 84,2°F - but in high humidity. Maybe tonight, when it's colder, or tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.

Joe:
I think your idea is pretty good. NarniaIsAwesome asked me to move one of his/her ideas to this list. Do you wanna join my 25-list with your idea? I would put your suggestion to the 25.. list of same ideas, if that's ok for you.

Stephen Atwood:
I see you want to change an anime to a photorealistic movie. That's not the subject. It's more about making filmed remakes of formerly filmed movies. I know no one else who would change the work of Hayao Miyazaki. Sorry, but no.

Breu, I think it's fine to put it on the main list of 25.

Film: ALIVE (1993) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106246/ 
Director: Frank Marshall
Wish: Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu
Benefit: a larger-than-life story that also starts with an accident (a recurring theme in Inarritu's films) bringing many characters together and forcing them to transcend their capabilities for better or for worse... the original film while good in its own right didn't get the reception it deserved and might garner many complaints for its non-Hispanic main cast, surely that wouldn't be an issue with the Mexican-born director.

I really like this idea. How fun! I don't have any suggestions now but ideas are percolating; I would love Sean Baker ('Tangerine' among 'The Florida Project' other less known films) to remake... I'll have something soon. : )

Changed NIA's 'Die Monster, Die!' to this list.
joe siegel's 'Jumper'-suggestion is now on the 25 list.
