Seriously! Why? Why aren't there original ideas instead of remakes.
There are original ideas aplenty. The problem is that businessmen, not artists, make the decisions about what gets produced, and the suits, for the most part, choose to produce what seems financially safest in order to keep their high paying jobs as long as possible. They are risk averse, meaning that what is new or different is anathema to them. Popular culture suffers in consequence.
