If Madonna remakes Casablanca, then I say a death sentence is warranted. We must kill her BEFORE she can remake it, because if she does it I fear she will trigger the Apocalypse.

I don't know there's a lack of ideas, but Hollywood is a pretty tight-nit group and access is a problem. There's thousands, maybe a million scripts out there independantly trying to be shopped at any given time.

They know there's money in familiarity and a franchise that's already spent the bucks on the brand. They almost always make money even if its not a hit, and if you can make a single dollar that didn't exist before, why not. It's not like the principle of the art is a big factor there.
