It was remade.

It's called "The Condemned" it came out in 2007 and stars Steve Austin. Instead of stalkers, they have to kill each other while an online audience bets on who is going to win. Kind of a cross between Running Man and Hunger Games.

For a B movie, it's actually pretty good. Here's the Trailer and a clip.





This was actually a pretty solid movie TBH. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a remake...but "heavily influenced" seems to fit. It kind of falls apart in the 3rd act as I recall.

I thought they made one with Inception.

To the poster who wanted an Excalibur storyline, they did one this year. I forget the name.

Night of the creeps was basically a low-budget take on the Puppetmasters, but it could probably be resurrected. I did really like it too though

Running man could definitely stand an non-cheese remake.

Altered States has great potential. You can approach that one from many angles, action, horror, drama.(if they did an "action" take, I'd like to see them look at it conceptually like the werewolves from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, the ones who don't shapechange).

Not a remake per se, but I would like to see William Gibson's Neuromancer made into something, they seemed to try and pick parts of it with johnny Mnemonic (which was horribly butchered. seriously, Molly Millions is an epic sci-fi character and you replace her with "Jane"?). Do it right. Mona Lisa Overdrive would be a fantastic adaption for our youth and celebrity and reality TV obsessed culture. Untapped well.

Mortal Kombat could be done, the movie was trash, but it has a ton of potential with modern effects.

Not sure about Quantum Leap. Only way that would work would be a Looper kind of thing. I guess you could do that though. But a sci-fi series that really could work IMO is "Sliders". You'd have to get a few universes in in the first movie which could be tough, but after that the potential for sequels is endless.

"They Live" is a cult classic that I think could really work with a real big-screen effort to it.

One I would like to see tried is "Freejack" but they would really have to reinterpret it, you can't copy the 'chemistry' between Emilio and Mick, that was flat awesome.

Another "not a remake", but I would love to see "Micronauts" added to the comic book movie spasm.

And which of the millions of Spiderman remakes/sequels will finally give us Iceman and Firestar?

No point in remaking "A Clockwork Orange". That's like remaking Gone with the wind or Wizard of Oz.

But with all that said, if there was ever a movie that could really kill it with a remake it is "Demon Seed"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon_Seed

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075931/

Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, procreation, definitely could be timely and impressive given proper treatment.

Afterwards I was thinking who could be the actors in the remake. So I came here to put my suggestions only to see this.

I 100% agree about Leonardo DiCaprio. He would be perfect in the John Trovolta roll.

Tom Hardy did come to mind BUT I don't think he can pull off that Nicolas Cage "Lunatic" roll that well. The PERFECT person in my opinion would be Jared Leto.

So, Dicaprio = John Tovolta's Roll
Leto = Nicolas Cage' roll
Director = Christopher Nolan

This, I would pay to watch!

I'd watch just to see DiCaprio as a homicidal maniac for much of the movie.

Building on this premise (which works), and I would be buying the premiere night ticket

Pollux Troy : Jason Sudeikis
Eve Archer : Jennifer Lawrence .. (that may be too high dollar, but she needs a different role)
FBI Boss : Jason Statham
Castor Troy Gang:
- Shawn Micheals
- 50 Cent
- Common

Only if Skank and Gutterboy have bigger roles.

I'd watch those two idiots debate tax policy.

My girlfriend is a Star Wars fan...I'm not. I appreciate the new movies as movies but don't know or care about the backstory for the characters. Please don't do this to me.
