I'm not normally opposed to remakes. Far from it, in fact. I just wish they were better than they inevitably turn out to be. But, having said that, there are some films that one really shouldn't touch. Citizen Kane. Don't Look Now (although, apparently, someone's trying). Psycho (I know someone remade that already, but that's my point).
I would add James Whale's Bride Of Frankenstein to that list which is pretty much a perfect movie in my humble opinion.
And yet Universal has been trying to remake it for a few years now. What with their new Wolfman coming in November, and a Creature From The Black Lagoon redo on the cards, it was a no-brainer that they'd get round to remaking Bride, a further piece in their attempt to resurrect their classic Universal Horror stable. (It could be worst, I suppose. They could have hired Steve Sommers.)
According to this article in Hollywood Reporter, Neil Burger, writer-director of The Illusionist, has come onboard to helm.
I wish him luck. I really do. Although, equally, I wish he (or rather they) wouldn't bother.
