    Here is a list of upcoming movies, or ones already out this year, that are remakes. Most have no business being remade, either because they were bad to begin with or, like Hitchcock’s film, could never be made better.

    Logan’s Run
    Uber-producer Joel Silver is pushing this remake, which has director Joseph Kosinski attached (whose name is also being linked with the new Tron film). Logan’s Run is believed to be first in line, though, and a 2010 release is being mooted.

    Death Wish
    Sylvester Stallone is set to step into the role made famous by Charles Bronson in a remake of Michael Winner’s violent original. Stallone is set to write, produce and star, and production is planned to start at some point this year.

    Tron
    Will it be a sequel? Will it be a remake? Will they call it a ‘reimagining’? All these questions and more are set to be answered, as three decades on, Tron will be heading back to the big screen in 2010.

    The Birds
    How depressing. Hitchcock’s awesome thriller is getting the remake treatment, with Martin ‘Casino Royale’ Campbell rumoured to be directing, and Naomi Watts linked with the project too.

    Westworld
    The terrific forerunner to Jurassic Park – also penned by Michael Crichton – Westworld has long been mooted for a remake. Billy Ray, who directed Breach and Shattered Glass, is the latest writer to take a stab at the theme-park-attraction-goes-out-of-control concept.

    Escape From New York
    Another John Carpenter classic is getting remade, and Terminator 3 director Jonathan Mostow – with Ken Nolan – is taking a stab at the script. No word if he’s going to direct, but a 2009 release is mooted.

    Meatballs
    Another 80s comedy getting a remake, Meatballs has – oh dear – Big Momma’s House 2 (not even the original!) director John Whitesell attached to it. And no sign of Bill Murray, either. Never a good thing.

    Howard Stern’s Porkys
    A remake of Bob Clark’s bawdy early 80s comedy, this is still in the planning stages with US shock-jock lending his name to the project and the title. It’s planned to have it ready for 2009. Expect an array of shitty sequels if it hits.

    The Dirty Dozen
    Alias veteran Josh Applebaum has the unenviable task of coming up with a suitable script for the remake of the original classic. 2010 is the earliest it’ll be released.

      Astute observations, sir.
