This movie simply doesn't need to be remade. At least not now. Come on Hollywood, you can do better.

NO reason to remake this movie and absolutely no reason to recast with Cruise!

The concept of bringing together all of the classic Universal monsters into one "rally" movie still has potential, even if the previous Van Helsing flick botched it terribly. If this is a complete start-from-scratch reboot, I'd be willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

Good point. It might also star Taylor Lautner roundhouse kicking everything off the screen in ultra-uber 3D.

Cruise is going to be "very" busy for the next few years. News broke today that he and Kate are getting a divorce so he's going to need some extra bills his lawyer and some for her.

What makes you happy doesnt make Universal happy. wink.gif

When they saw how much money Avangers made, this is the closest they can come up with.

The original was too cheeseball for me. Another one of those Hollywood movies that tries to be action/horror and is too much action (to the point of being almost a cartoon) and not enough horror.

Not that I think they'd do a reboot much (if any) better.

Van Helsing is the worst movie I have ever seen with a budget above 100 million.

This won't be a reboot or a remake since that character has been around for a long long time. They will just do something closer to what the character is as opposed to the sh*t fest Steven Sommers gave us.

So, I take it that you absolutely LOVED the 2004 version. I'm sending a dump truck filled with 250,000 copies of the Blu-ray over to you right now. Enjoy.
