Based on the highly interest of the Poll Board users, I created a second, only to 35 options limited  list.

Intro:

I guess there is no movie dude, who never thought: "This movie should be
remade". If there would be a nowerdays remake of one of these titles below, except for a new cast, a new director would have to be chosen. The director can be chosen on different matters, e.g. showing a new view on the story. Which of these fictional remakes below would you most likely want to be made? Please pick your favorite remake by also considering the mentioned titles of the filmographies and - of course - the mentioned benefit of it. Free your mind here. This is the second part of this fictional remakes series.

Rules:

Every user has 2 suggestions. Please only serious suggestions. I will deny suggestions if I think it doesn't fit. Convince me with your good ideas, please. It doesn't cost you to try! ;D

Breu,
you can move my Beast Must Die idea to this list.  It's one I'm pretty passionate about, and I think it would fit in this list best.  Plus it will free up a spot in the other one for someone with a more popular idea to use.  Thank you.  :)

Yes, ok. But first I have to find another option for the first list. That's because I declared it as full and ready to go. Give me some time. I'll think about another movie I'll put on the first list. Afterwards I'll put your 'Beast'-suggestion to the second list. :)

Film: ALIVE (1993) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106246/ 
Director: Frank Marshall
Wish: Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu
Benefit: a larger-than-life story that also starts with an accident (a recurring theme in Inarritu's films) bringing many characters together and forcing them to transcend their capabilities for better or for worse... the original film while good in its own right didn't get the reception it deserved and might garner many complaints for its non-Hispanic main cast, surely that wouldn't be an issue with the Mexican-born director.

 By watching movies you can dream, but when they end, you're back in reality. We often passionately and vividly discussed about the fantasies we saw. We know they are not real, but it's fine to dream about changing the movie a little in our minds.

Well said.  :)

I wish it would have been 80°F at night. Todays peak in G was 108,68 °F, Which means 42,6 °C, half steamy. When Germany has tempratures like the Mojave desert, something went wrong! I'm glad I was not at the place where the peak happened. Climate change is real!

108 here also. Humid too. Had flash floods also yesterday. We had our coldest winter. It actually snowed out here in Jan. Global cooling. It's real!

So After these records, it's stated that climate change happens.
108°F is normal at Mojave, but not in G!

I really like this idea. How fun! I don't have any suggestions now but ideas are percolating; I would love Sean Baker ('Tangerine' among 'The Florida Project' other less known films) to remake... I'll have something soon. : )
