If FP does get remade, I probably won't watch it. I made the mistake of watching the remake of "The Day The Earth Stood Still" and it was physically painful. That movie was such a piece of garbage compared to the original. And I'm afraid the same thing will happen with FP. 21st century Hollywood will utterly ruin one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time.
Didn't GR take some inspiration for Star Trek from FP? I think I read that somewhere. And I can see it. The transporter pad on the Enterprise looks suspiciously similar to the "DC Stations" on the C57-D. And "United Federation Of Planets" sounds a lot like "United Planets". And there's the use of "hyperdrive", and many more elements. If it is ineed true, GR couldn't have found a better movie to inspire him.
