a female-led reboot of the 1993 action film, Cliffhanger

Why? Did the Point Break remake not teach them not to just redo 90s action movies?

At least Point Break had a cult following. If you’re not old enough to have seen Cliffhanger when it came out, then you probably haven’t seen it. Even if you had seen it, you weren’t calling for a remake.

Try writing something new, instead of just rehashing movies from the director/producer/movie execs childhood. There seems to be a trend of childhood nostalgia remakes. The people who thought the movie was good when they were young, are now the people wanting to remake them.

If you’re going to remake a movie, do it because you can add to the original, instead of just playing on nostalgia for the original. Bring us an entirely new story in the same universe. Update the poor special effects of the time.

Don’t just remake something because the person who now holds the purse-strings liked the original.
