Can Hollywood come up with an original idea ?

Seeing trailers for the “new” Flight Of The Phoenix it seems not (original The Flight Of The Phoenix with James Stewart).

Of course this comes hot on the heels of Assault on Precinct 13 the remake of John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 which Carpenter made as an update, because he couldn’t afford to do a cowboy, of the Howard Hawks movieRio Bravo.

But then Carpenter was just following Hawks himself who remade Rio Bravo as El Dorado & Rio Lobo not even bothering to change the lead actor in the two follow ups.

Then there was “The Italian Job” & “Alfie”…what’s it all about
And if these carry on making cash then chances are Hollywood will look no further than some “golden oldies” for their new “blockbusters”
