I'm sure it is quite interesting. And it would probably make a good movie in its own right. However, Forbidden Planet is a great movie itself. One of, if not THE best sci-fi movie ever made (my personal opinion there). I just don't think it needs to be remade. There's necessity, then there's just plain "because its there". Remaking FP is not a necessity. They're talking about it simply because it's there and Hollywood is running out of original ideas so all they have left is screwing with established movies. And it's getting old. There are some movies, very few, that should be set aside as benchmark classics that are not to be "messed with". Forbidden Planet is one of those.
