Actually, I think the next movie based on a crappy sitcom will be "Small Wonder" the truly awful show about the robot shaped like a little girl. Nobody wondered why she spoke monotone.

My Secret Identity starring Jerry O'Connell.

"The Monkees" audition for "American Idol"
Of course they will compete against "The Partridge Family" and "The Brady Bunch" for the special place in history presently occupied by William Hung.

The Sequel:
"American Idol, Love Boat Style"
The gang travels to "Fantasy Island" and gets attacked by a horde of rabid, Hanta virus, carrying Mouseketeers, but are miraculously saved by “CHiPs”, really only Erik Estrada.

With cameos from all of the original “Poseidon Adventure” cast. The clone, Dr. in South Korea brings the dead ones back to life. He has an accident and makes Shelly Winters look like Paris Hilton, who is actually Paris Hilton!!! Oh joy!!! Shelly appears shortly after Paris, so double triple cameo from one person.

My Secret Identity was awesome! Don't dis Jerry! LOL. Oh, and thanks for posting that link.

The Powers of Matthew Star. It was on in the early 80s, I think; this seemingly normal teenage boy was actually a prince from another planet, or something like that (maybe I should have Googled before I started this post), and if memory serves Louis Gossett played his advisor/guardian type figure. (Memory may not serve... I'm going to Google and I'll edit this post if I'm wrong.)

ETA: Holy crow, I was right!

They'll probably redo something that was a classic, like The Breakfast Club or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and they'll put really dreadful people like Katie Holmes and Tara Reid in it, and then I'll want to pluck my eyeballs out with hot forks.

I'm thinking they'll redo Attack of the Killer Tomatoes... or maybe The Toxic Avenger... or maybe Carnosaur?

How about Night of the Lepus?

After finally seeing "King Kong," my thoughts are if Peter Jackson gets behind it, I give him permission to do any remake he desires.

I Dream of Jeannie, starring Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant. With a special guest appearance by Barbara Eden as Jeannie's grandmother.

The basic plot will be that the Hugh Grant character won't sleep with Jeannie but is caught with a skanky male prostitute. The incident may end his chance for being the first British commander of a space shuttle. Only when Jeannie's virgin grandmother shows up and convinces Jeannie that love conquers all is the difficulties resolved (in the last 10 minutes). Hugh and Jeannie and Leon live happily every after in a small capsule decorated in red velvet and beads.

The end.

I predict they'll re- do "The Day The Earth Stood Still". And they will make Tom Cruise the male lead.

And then I'll have to fight with Pattithewicked for those hot forks.

Just kill me now...the thought itself makes me want to...urp........

Disney seems to me remaking all the films it ever made, so it's only a matter of time until they get to Million Dollar Duck.

With today's CGI, I think it's high time Howard the Duck was remade. :)

I heard a rumor awhile back, there was supposed to be a My Three Sons movie, but that was years ago.

If Hollywood could just do a live-action adaptation of either Voltron or Transformers, then my inner child would be very happy.

But they'll probably do something stupid, like Punky Brewster or some sh1t.

That's a good one.

How about "1,000,000 Years B.C."?

How about Millennium -- it's not old (1989) but it has some really cool concepts, just poor execution.

I think Disney should remake all the Kurt Russell classics:

The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes
The Barefoot Executive
The World's Strongest Man

Hey, they re-did Herbie!

I think a live action Voltron is coming out.

Voltron (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472429/)

No word on Transformers.

Let's not forget Tron! Call it Tron in the 21st Century. Kurt Russell could still be stuck in the computer, but now the Master Control is killing him slowly by sending parts of him out as spam for Viagra and phishing e-mail from Nigeria (I can hear Kurt now, "Nooooo, don't enter your bank account information in the box!"). Bill Gates could make a guest appearance playing himself.

And Jerry Bruckheimer has his grubby mitts on Gatchaman! (that's G-Force and Battle of the Planets to the rest of you)

That wasn't Kurt Russell, though. That was Jeff Bridges.

How about Blackhole? That's a movie begging for a remake.

That great old classic, Old Yeller, would be wonderful! Starring my dog, except he's not yeller.

A series of teen movies: Beach Party Bingo, Pyjama Party etc, but with a contemporary touch. The teens in these movies will have piercings, tattoos and sex, Britney Spears will play the female lead and they will deal with dark modern teen problems, such as cutting and anorexia.

It's begging for a pack of matches. Ugh...what a horrible flick. I remember when it came out--it was Disney's first big sci-fi flick--there was so much advertising and build-up. What a let down.

A live action Transformers is on the horizon. I can't front, I'm pretty geeked about that.

maestrowork may have won the prize. As I recall, the blackhole (where supposedly even light can't escape) kind of looked like a toilet flushing.

Hey, we're about to get the remake of Pink Panther. Which looks like nothing more than an excuse for the worst kind of slapstick pratfalls. Even the trailers on TV aren't funny. Steve Martin and Kevin Kline must really be short of money.

caw.

Some classics should never be remade. The Pink Panther is one of them. Sorry, but Steve Martin is a pale Peter Sellers.
