What? Hollywood Remaking "Roadhouse"

I don't know if people actually like Roadhouse or if it's just some kind of Nostalgic Ironic Pretend-Liking. I suspect the latter.

It's a piece of crap movie. I cannot imagine why anyone would even consider remaking it. It would be like choosing some trivial wrestling movie from 1938 -- yeah, they used to make movies about wrestling, that was a thing -- to remake.

Apparently, literally all movies and tv shows with the slightest amount of name recognition will be remade/rebooted.

I honestly don't know what the cut-off is, here. If Roadhouse is now a property ripe for exploitation, based upon the 400 people who liked Roadhouse, then what movie or TV wouldn't they remake?

Man from Atlantis? Manimal? Momma's Family? My Two Dads? Silver Spoons: The Movie?

What about BJ and the 7 Lady Truckers?

Obviously every successful movie will be remade. I'm sure a Top Gun sequel will be made the moment Hollywood decides we're in a time of peace so they may safely make a movie that shows the military in a good light.

But they're not making movies that didn't make a particularly large amount of money, and which were not good movies, and which people didn't really like very much.

Roadhouse? Roadhouse?

That's just obnoxious.

Here's the movie I hope they remake next. I don't think Competitive Underground Arm-Wrestling really got a fair shake, and I think Over the Top was very underrated.

Thanks to @benk84.

Update: Weird Science, the remake, is a go.
