It looks like studios may start thinking more towards that mindset. In today's age, no property is done if the studio can still think of a way to make money from it. My beef is that there are too many remakes that don't add much to the franchises. All you're doing is telling the same damn story over again, throwing in a few differences so that it's all "new and excitingly updated," and banking on the product's familiarity to sell a few tickets. They might as well just add a sequel or prequel to add to the story. Remakes only hurt creativity, because there really isn't anything all that creative than retelling someone else's work.
