And why would you ever want to disgrace the memories of the first film with a remake wich would be more than pointless! Just for better CGI? JP was good because it never relied only on them, so why make it bigger and better looking? This movie is not so filled with 90es feeling and is pretty timeless even with its CGI, it doesnt need a remake!
If you desperetly want to, polish the visuals and sound, add some minor things like in Alien or Blade Runner which are timeless as well and maybe add 3D. That would be acceptable. Bullshit like the Psycho-Remake that noone needed cause it chose the way these guys are suggesting, only leads to epic failure...
Ick, I agree, that cast list it one of the reasons I wouldnt want to see a remake.
I wouldnt think a remake would be disgracing the original movie or anything though, i seriously doubt anyone here wants that. everyone here loves jurassic park. I think they want more like.. well.. i dont know if youve seen fullmetal alchemist or not, but basically it was a manga they made into an anime series though that series used most of all the same characters themes and ideas the story went in a different direction, then after that one was done they remade the series again, same characters same voice actors (mostly, a few changes needed to be made) everything, just now they stuck to the same story from the manga.
I think thats what they want from jurassic park, they dont want to disgrace the first, or replace the first or anything like that, they want the same setting characters and everything, just the story being mostly the same but going a different way with it closer to the novel.
But i think we can both agree on this part: I really doubt it will work without the original cast.
Maybe if they can get as many people as they could back.. but i dont know.
As for me, im still undecided on the whole issue of the remake, i can see good things and bad. But i think one thing we can all agree on is this: We all want more jurassic park, either jp4, a remake, or more games, right?
