When the dust settles on this one, if it ever does, one of two things will happen:
1) It will be an astounding remake, which people will embrace with unanticipated glee or
2) it will be closer to 3 dead whales rotting on a beach and people will scream and pull at their hair in the aftermath. No middle ground seems possible.
I lean towards #2, but full disclosure, I am a GAS-sy old proghead who plays that 9-note theme from "Olias of Sunhillow" in music stores to see if anyone notices.
