Everyone has a love-hate relationship with movie remakes. For every Parent Trap, there’s a Footloose; for every Ocean’s 11, an Overboard. Everything old is new again, and some of our most beloved films are getting a second life (to both our excitement and dismay). But there’s no escaping it. So instead, mark your calendars, because here is a comprehensive list of movie remakes coming soon to a theatre near you.
Assemble your crew, because a new Charlie's Angels film is in the works. This version will introduce a new era of Angels played by Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) and newcomer Ella Balinska. Elizabeth Banks is also pulling double-duty on the revival: she'll be taking the director's seat and co-starring as Bosley, the stand-in for the mysterious owner of their detective agency, Charlie Townsend.
Expected release: September 27, 2019
A Star Is Born
A Star is Born has been done thrice before, most recently with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. This time, Bradley Cooper directs and stars alongside Lady Gaga, making her first big-screen outing. Raise your hand if you're curious to hear what Cooper's singing voice is like.
Expected release: October 5, 2018
