I like movies, I like alternate history, I like this. That being said, I have some concerns with some of the actors they choose to represent the iconic characters of cinema past. Leonard Nimoy as John McClane, no. Mick Jagger as the first James Bond, also no.
Yul Brynner as a crazy Blue Na’vi in Avatar, I can see that. Steve McQueen as Kyle Reese, with Christopher Walken as the T-1000, that could be interesting.
Anyway, all that being said, I think there is some potential in those films, but at the same time I think it’s silly to re-immagine too many classics, you start a dangerous slide rather easily I think.
