Movies From This Century That Are Already Being Remade
Remakes and reboots are all the rage these days. In fact, they're so popular that even films from this century are already getting the refresh treatment. From fantasy films to slasher flicks, these are the remakes of 21st-century films we can expect to see in the near future.
With a star-studded cast including James McAvoy and Tilda Swinton, 2005's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe made $745 million worldwide and was one of the most popular films released that year. It even went on to win a well-deserved Academy Award for best makeup and hairstyling.
The next installment was Prince Caspian in 2008, followed by The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 2010. The films continued to be popular, but not enough to warrant another film, and the series fourth entry, The Silver Chair, was scrapped altogether.
However, now that Game of Thrones is over, there's a great big fantasy-shaped hole for Hollywood to fill, so Netflix is preparing to reboot the Narnia series, in both TV and movie form. With seven books to adapt and both feature films and series in the works, the streaming service is about to become a truly magical place.
With its iffy script and hokey special effects, 2011's Green Lantern was a disaster of heroic proportions. In fact, the only positive anyone can seem to find about Green Lantern is the film introduced Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who fell in love on the set and are now married with three children.
DC is bringing the Lantern back, already.... The film's working title is Green Lantern Corps , and the screenplay is being written by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, who also wrote Aquaman and Wonder Woman 1984. Johns is well aware of the various missteps from the first film, and he's working to make sure those aren't repeated in his new screenplay. Keep watching the video to see all the movies from this century that are already being remade.
