Why isn't this film being remade??


Have James Cameron direct and redo the script. It would be awesome!

The movie is probably too forgotten at this point. I think Charles Band once commented if he has the money, he would remake it. DEADLY WEAPON (1989) doesn't count.

But I do think the premise could work for a remake. But if one was made, I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it a hero twist in which Billy uses the gun to battle evil alien invaders, rather than kill bullies.

Good points, both of you.

This film doesn't need a remake; it's fine the way it is.

Better character development. An explanation as to why using the ray gun causes the mutation. Maybe explore the opening sequence and who that previous boy was. Let us know more about the aliens. There's plenty they could do.

I think the aliens even left the ray gun behind for a second time. Maybe the film-makers were hoping for a sequel.

Because Hollywood ONLY remakes movies that need not be remade.
