Usually I don't mind remakes but some movies shouldn't be remade, and this is one of them.
That said, this is already the second Carrie remake, plus there was a sequel.

It was a big expensive flop, too.

They have as much imagination as they ever did, it's just that you can't bank imagination. People will pay money to see remakes of stuff they're already familiar with instead of taking a chance on something new. If people stopped buying tickets to remakes Hollywood would stop making them.

Only reason remakes happen is money.

Younger people likely haven't seen the originals, and hear about a remake, so they rent the original and see the remake.

Fans of the originals KNOW it won't be as good, but their curiousity is piqued, so they watch and laugh at how horrible the new one is.

Name recognition sells tickets.  It's the same with video games these days, perpetual sequels of franchises that should have died years ago.

I wish that the Crash Bandicoot franchise hadn't died.  If only the PS2 games were good....

Wait?  What were we talking about?  A Carrie remake?  I can understand why they remake movies; they want to make money, and they know the earlier version made money.  That doesn't mean remakes are good, but it also doesn't mean remakes are bad.  It's hard to make a good movie.  It's harder still to be successful twice, to impress new audiences and the fans of the original, so most remakes fail.  That doesn't meant they should stop. It just means that they should be very careful when considering remaking something.  Note that this does not mean that I'm in favor of remakes, unless the movie was bad to begin with, and a new director/producer/writer/whoever thinks he/she can improve it.

Also, I'm not sure if Hollywood ever had a lot of imagination.  Weren't most classic films were based off successful books or plays?

They've already remade Carrie, haven't they? Anyways I'd predict no one remembers the remake in short order if it's unremarkable and people will continue to still think first of the original film when they hear the title.

Others have mentioned this, but I find it totally pointless to remake a movie that's already been remade (even though it was a "sequel" in name only).  Lookingup

Our culture these days only recycles fashions from the 20th century, and movies and music too... As in remakes off the acctuall songs and movies. And Recycles the worst parts off fashions... Most are from the 80's still being worn by teenage girls to this day.

I hate this time!! Being a 90's kid was only a set up for disapointment... as a kid I saw teenagers with differents trends, fads and cultural changes that made their decade awesome for teenagers. Like the decade before, and the decade before that. I wondered what my teenage years would be like. Only to find people kept repating s**t, and the only new thing they came up with was terroist attacks, predicting when the world is going to end... And constantly getting it wrong again and again.  So instead off progressing in the world with womans rights (we could be using this time for gay rights for example) we keep sitting here deciding when we are all going to die and which religion goes to heaven and is there for right... which it seems is the greatest reward off all. It is all just Cultural suicide, with MTV No longer having Heavy Metal and Beavis and Butthead but instead Reality TV... No wonder I got so bored I kept dying my hair different colours like purple and blue every week... My generation was just boring. Rap videos and skate boarding pop punk bands... I want to kill myself. And the Teenagers have it even worse now and do not even realize it could be better!!!!


So yes ... A Carrie Remake does not surprise me at all.
