It ain't over yet, these are more horror remakes in the pipeline: 
 
Poltergeist (2013) - Even though there may be a glimmer of hope for this as Sam Raimi is a producer I wouldn't bet on it. His other producing credits include The Grudge (whose screenwriters are also on board) and Bogeyman, so don't get all excited.  
 
The Birds - Why?! Hitchcock got it right first time! There's no point! Oh right, coz this is the easy alternative to robbing a bank.  

You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

It is getting really, really, REALLY hard to be a movie lover these days when Hollywood will not stop s***ing on all the movies I love and hold dear. 

MAKE ORIGINAL MOVIES, YOU F***ING LAZY, UNCREATIVE @$$HOLES!!!

For Poltergiest, I guess they want to make up for the bad sequels,like PREDATORS did.

As for re-making The Birds, if they make the same movie with the original ending, I'll be happy.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I am curious -- By "original ending," do you mean the ending they had to use in the theatrical version of THE BIRDS...or the ending Hitchcock originally envisioned and had to abandon, where Rod Taylor's sportscar crests the hill overlooking the Golden Gate bridge only to find it...covered with thousands of waiting birds??

If those two new horror remakes do as badly as I think they will, I'll get my hands on them... and beat 'em up as hard and fast as I possibly can.

Regarding The Birds, I meant the one with the Golden Gate.It would've been a better ending...

Better idea: DO NOT make the remake at all! Hey, how about we have a little poll? How long do you think it will be before they officially annouce that there will be a remake of "Gone With The Wind"?

I have a really close friend that I talk to about movies all the time, and we frequently discuss topics related to movies, such as "eye-popping 3-D," the Oscars, the decline in the quality of film, and remakes (I personally like to call it the "Remake Rampage").

In our remake discussions, we occasionally bring up Gone with the Wind, as well as Citizen Kane and (dare I say it) The Godfather.

To answer your question... probably 5-10 years.

I think the "Golden Gate" ending to The Birds would be depressing, actually. I liked the theatrical ending more, because it's less bleak.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Given that the entire movie of THE BIRDS is arguably an apocalyptic vision of nature turning against man, the so-called "Golden Gate" ending would have been more in keeping with Hitchcock's original intent. MWG's argument sounds an awful lot like what Ol' Alfred must've heard from execs at Universal Studios when he first proposed this ending. But then, as I recall, MWG expended countless posts a few years ago vainly trying to argue that M. Night Shyamalan's laughably ludicrous THE HAPPENING (a 2008 Worst Picture nominee and in many ways a not-too-subtle rip-off of THE BIRDS) actually was terrifying -- so MWG's credentials for judging terror/suspense movies are suspicious at best...

You know why The Happening was a lot like The Birds? Because it was inspired by The Birds. The structure is the same: Event happens. Characters try to survive. No known explanation of the event. But then again, I don't see what that has to do with what I was saying.

So what you're saying is that every single disaster movie ever made is based on "The Birds". Because in all disaster movies, something happens and then characters try to survive. Other then that ingenius plot summary of yours (gotta love how he tries to compare M. Night movies with actual good movies), "Happening" has not a damn thing in common with "The Birds".

Yes, it does. MNS stated that was the main inspiration of the film and it's clearly there. If you think you're more correct than a director's vision of a film, then more power to you. The films end on exactly the same note as well as having a ridiculous premise around nature attacking back at humans. Both hinge on the fact that there is no explanation to the events. If you can't see that, then I'm not going to say anything. Even critics noted the similarities, along with people who have seen the film. Lastly, let's not get off topic, shall we?

Yeah, but to quote "Spiral Tap", MNS took the ridiculous and turned it up 11 ... and beyond. Okay, now stopping being off topic.

I wish they didn't remake classics,but if there's going to be a remake of GONE WITH THE WIND no matter what,I'd rather they blend the first 3 hours into 1 hour or less,since the 4th hour it's the good one.

The ending they used ruined the whole movie!

Since Hitchcock is his favorite director,a lot of Night's movies either have a similar plot or similar elements.There's also a lot of THE BIRDS in SIGNS:No explanations;people locked in their own attic/basements...

Wow, you took that surprisingly well. It seems any time MWG remains cool, Miguel loses his, and vica-versa.
