Metropolis to be remade

As reported on Sci Fi Wire (from Variety), Producer Thomas Schuehly has acquired the remake rights to Fritz Lang's classic Science fiction movie Metropolis and is partnering with Mario Kassar.

Metropolis is one of the best films ever made, and perhaps the best silent film ever made.

This is an awful idea. The only positive aspect that can even be derived from this is that it could bring more attention to the original film.

I totally agree with you. I guess Hollywood is running out of ideas. I just can't stand it when they try to "remake" a classic. They may be able to provide all the "bells and whistles," (CAD,etc.), but the actors, and writers, well they say in New York, forget about.
