    After about 87 “Rocky” movies, “Creed” has gotten the kinds of reviews you rarely see for franchises that seem long past their prime. A lot of that seems to be due to Ryan Coogler at the helm. What other franchises do you think could be refreshened by a unique filmmaker?

    Well the exact opposite is about to happen when the miserable Neil Blomkamp trashes the Alien franchise into the furnace so maybe once that bombs a reasonable director can take it on and revive it 

    It would be nice if someone could clean up the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. As much as I loved the first 3, the 4th was just all over the place and as much as I love Rob Marshall, I think he just spun the franchise off the rails. I don’t know if the new movies will do anything to make it less crazy and back to the fun of the first 3

    Ummm…since when is Ryan Coogler an auteur? Too many people think auteur = good director. Nonsense. 

    To answer your question, I’d like to see the Narnia films rebooted by Alejandro Jodorowsky (an actual auteur). He has the eye for surrealism and the ability to tell fantasy stories in a very unique way.

    I would like maybe Gareth Edwards do something with Jaws.

    His last couple of films werent huge or critically acclaimed, but they werent the worst either. Blomkamp is relatively young for a director and I havent given up on the guy. And thanks Neil, for being a genre-friendly Director. He also has Dan O’Bannon on board which is far from a bad thing.

    He’s managed to get at least two of the original cast, from the sequels anyways and the addition of Sigourney is NEVER a misstep.

    Trying to retell or remake the first one is crazy-ness……but I dont think he’s going there.

    Anyways, I dont expect him to ‘trash’ the franchise. That franchise is iconic. They simply wont let him. Funny how the once fantastic Ridley Scott gets away “scott” free….talk about putting rotten corks into his own franchise,,,

     

    …..gach

    Yes!

    There are at least seven books, and all of them are very readable and entertaining. Scathing even in some parts. If he aims for general audiences and not purely Christians, that would be very nice to see!

    They ran out of monies apparently, after the first two.

    And get Tilda Swinton back, please.

    Two good movies does NOT make Ryan Coogler an auteur. 
    That being said, my wish has already come true: a great director bringing Star Wars back to greatness after Lucas’ awful prequels.

    Disregarding Gus Van Sant’s failed attempt to revisit “Psycho,” I’d love to see what Lenny Abrahamson (Room) could do with that kind of material

    I dunno why, but they should give this idea to Spike Lee

    I’d love to see Lenny Abrahamson reinvigorate Terminator. Even if he doesn’t really have experience with sci-fi, Room couldn’t be more different from Frank. So his versatility as a director would give me faith that he would breath new life into a franchise that is running low on batteries.

    We’re in luck. One-Hit Wonder has put his film on hold so that Ridley Scott can make Alien: Covenant.

    Not sure that an “auteur” needs to be involved in this, but there’s a lot of nostalgia out there for “Beverly Hills Cop.” A reboot or sequel could go over very well with the public if done correctly, with or without Eddie Murphy (but hopefully with). I wouldn’t mind seeing another “Legally Blonde” film, and Reese Witherspoon has said that she’s up for doing another one with the right script and director attached. A reinvented “Addams Family” film could be cool too.

    Obviously, we need Werner Herzog to take on “Police Academy.”
