Whenever I notice a recurring story trope on TV or on film, the first thing I think is, ‘Guess the writer’s couldn’t come up with anything new.’
Here are 10 film reboots (the original might not have gone the way it should have or we just want to see what they’d look like with a contemporary spin) to look out for in 2016 or in 2017.
These films are in the works for an updated look from past films/TV shows. Notice: the list doesn’t have superhero reboots (because there are already enough Spider-Man movies to count) or movie sequels.
1) The Jungle Book (1967)
2) IT (1990)
3) The Craft (1996)
4) Jumanji (1995)
5) Beauty and the Beast (1991)
6) Power Rangers (1993)
7) The Mummy (1932)
9) Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
10) Baywatch (1989)
