Well that Howling remake couldn't be worse than some of the sequels, could it? :O

The only recognizable face is part of Bruce Campbell, but will be in a cameo towards the end of the film. Another thing that will change the characters and some story details, while keeping the basic outline of friends who are beleaguered by demons in a cabin alone.
BD Horror News - New Line and Warners Give Up on Snake Plissken
Good. Please stay dead.Quote:
If eye patch-wearing antihero Snake Plissken is going to slither in a reboot, it won't be at New Line and Warner Bros. They've allowed the option to drop on a remake of Escape From New York that they've been developing, meaning that the reboot of the John Carpenter-directed 1981 classic is up for grabs.
Mimi Leder To Direct ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ Remake; Is Daniel Radcliffe Is Out? > The Playlist
Yes, classic film fans, prepare to sigh loudly and furrow your brows—and rightly so—as a remake of Lewis Milestone‘s 1930 WWI drama “All Quiet On The Western Front” is getting a remake. And not only that, it’s going to be from “Deep Impact” and “The Peacemaker” director Mimi Leder. Ugh. But if this all sounds somewhat familiar, well, it kind of is.
The project will be a new version of the classic Erich Maria Remarque novel which follows a group of German soldiers during the First World War and their first hand experiences with the brutality of war. The film is rightfully regarded as a classic—earning two Oscars for Best Director and Outstanding Production way back in the day—and though it was remade for TV in 1979, starring John-Boy from “The Waltons” and Ernest Borgnine, it’s no surprise that version is strangely less fondly remembered. But that won’t stop Leder.
Her version will take place “in the last 24 hours of the war” while still trying to address the horror, savagery and violence the young men thrown into battle face. Nothing like a gimmicky structure to get that point across. This one is still a long way off though. Production isn’t slated to begin until late 2012 in Europe…depending on whether or not the film gets the money it needs.
