Westworld Remake Picking Up Speed at WB

In the aftermath of an executive shake-up at Warner Brothers, it seems that several projects that were ear-marked for remaking are springing to life again, most notably Lethal Weapon, Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch and Westworld.
In discussing the projects, the Hollywood Reporter says of Westworld, "Here’s a remake that could actually benefit from a 21st Century dusting. MGM first produced this Michael Crichton-penned movie back in 1973 and Warners has been trying to remake it since the 1990s. Technology alone is almost reason enough to remake it. But what makes it appealingly remake-able is that Westworld’s story is based on a big idea: a robot attraction at a theme park that turns on its visitors. With Transformers making billions for Paramount and DreamWorks, Warners could use a big-idea robot movie to sell around the world."

This seems like a no-brainer to me. This, along with Godzilla, are two remakes that really should be undertaken. Hope they can find someone with the robotic menace of Yul Brynner to pull it off, though.
