Hollywood is known for remaking successful movies. Production companies do it every year. If they aren’t spending all of their money on a sequel, you can bet the people with the money are trying to find new ways to tell the same story.
There’s an old saying in Hollywood that the only thing the public wants to see is the same story on a larger scale. For some, the characters and the story have little importance. It’s about the excitement. The value of production. The twist. The action. The crash, and the explosion.
