10 Upcoming Movie Remakes We Are Excited About

Remake – a word which makes ardent cinephile puke with disgust – has been the go-to filmmaking venture for production studious. For the past 10 years, film industries have taken up the task to bring forth films and attempt to rehash. For this list, I have taken into account remakes of commercially or critically successful films and the cast attached to it. So, without further ado, here is the list of upcoming movie remakes coming out in 2019 and 2020. We hope that these latest new movie remakes are as good as some of the recent ones.

1. Scarface (TBA)

The second remake of the original ‘Scarface’ (1932), this upcoming remake will star Diego Luna as Tony Montana as Antoine Fuqua will take the director’s chair. While it’s quite confusing as to why is the film being remade for the second time, Antoine Fuqua’s involvement in the project makes the venture quite stimulating.

Disney’s 1992 animated flick ‘Aladdin’ is one of the most beloved pieces of works, and Guy Ritchie is set to direct the live-action remake of the classic… quite interesting.

5. Green Lantern Corps (2020)

While Ryan Reynolds’s abysmal venture as the CGI suited super-hero scarred many, ‘Green Lantern Corps’ does ring a bell in many DC fans. As per sources, this reboot will feature numerous “Green Lanterns”, with Hal Jordan leading the lot. The realise is set for 2020.

6. The Birds (TBA)

Considered as a perfectly directed Hitchcockian horror flick, ‘The Birds’ made its titular character, i.e. “birds”, one of the scariest characters in literature. While this upcoming remake sounds slightly unsettling, given this segment of filmmaking’s reputation of spooling classics, BBC and Coen Brother’s involvement sounds exciting.
