WTF? or WTF?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH just read that there is going to be a remake (or, as they are calling it, a reboot) of the Highlander movie. I find myself asking in real big letters, WHY?
That is one movie that should never be remade. That first Highlander movie was brilliant.
Is Hollywood so friggin bereft of new ideas that they have to resort to things that have been done before? Spawn is getting a remake. So is Daredevil, Fletch, Suspicion, Romancing the Stone, Robocop, Meatballs, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, F/X, Drop Dead Fred, An American Werewolf in London, Poltergeist, Escape From New York, The Birds, Pet Sematary, The NeverEnding Story, Westworld, The Black Hole, Short Circuit, Overboard, Judge Dredd, The Crow, The Birds to name just a few. There are many more in the works, or just in the planning stages. What scares me, being a big fan of classics from the forties, and earlier, is the fact that there are at least two Hitchcock movies in that list.
