The Day Their Brains Stood Still

Fox wants to remake one of the greatest SciFi movies ever made: The Day The Earth Stood Still.

All I really need to ask is, why? Why? Why remake one of the most perfectly made movies in history, science fiction or otherwise? Because it’s old? Because the son from “Father Knows Best” is in it? Because now we can CGI the spaceship landing on the White House lawn?
