Pitch your improbable sequel or remake!

article image placeholderUploaded by @Tim
What is the most unlikeliest remake or sequel or prequel you can pitch? Don't do something that's already in development. But I want you to take a beloved movie, a classic, and pitch us the sequel, prequel, extension or reboot or remake. Bad ideas are welcome

They said a sequel couldn’t happen. Prove them wrong. Imposssible to remake? Nonsense!

let’s remake Francis Ford Coppola’s best 😬

You see those same things. Colonialization, violence, the Heart of darkness. It's all there. Okay? The Godfather. Many people have it on their top film of all time list. Could you ever remake it? No, of course not. It wouldn't be the same. But hear me out. Hear me out. Give it to James Cameron. Godfather story on Avatar got box office gold

And it's basically a movie that came out in 1989. It was actually like a $50 million feature a Columbia picture did with Terry Gilliam from Brazil, as well as Marty Python and Time Bandits. And it was with John Neville. It had, uma thurman and Eric idle. Fantastic cast, great expansive big cinema movie that nobody watched. It made like $8 million at the box office. And sooner or later, Hollywood likes throwing movie money at movies that may not have a second chance

Lawrence of Arabia, Mel Brooks version

But if you try to imagine how a diminutive, five foot five foot D. Lawrence actually managed to pull that off, that it's even more impressive. His feet, what he did. However, when you start thinking about a remake, I don't want to make a serious remake. I think Mel Brooks version of Laurence Arabia Spaceballs will be good

@Tim A sequel to The Goonies (1985).

Okay, here we go. A sequel to the 85 movie The Goonies. So around the time those particular characters grow old enough to become grandparents, there's some sort of advancement in technology that allows us to, like, pause aging and sort of become kind of not really immortal anyway. So lock them in at that age
