    When I reviewed it five years ago, I never really thought of a remake, but it is definitely a candidate. Go with something closer to Science than the Fiction, but keep the deranged captain, the “missing” crew and that creepy freaking robot, Maximilian, and you’ve got a solid flick.

    Here’s some pitfalls they can avoid:
    1. Keep Maximilian silent as the grave. Even if they got James Earl Jones to do the voice, silent is way scarier.
    2. Focus on the fate of the crew and less about going through the black hole.
    3. Go PG-13. Don’t pander down to PG. Heck, you could even take this move to Event Horizon levels of terror and go for the R.
    4. Cast an older actor for the villain. Don’t give me some pouty underwear model and expect me to think he’s bitter and brilliant.

    Much as I agree with you on the Event Horizon level of creepyness, it is a Disney property and I highly doubt we’ll ever see anything with the Disney brand come out as an R rated movie

    So long as they leave in the part where the robot uses his hands as high speed fan blades to poke holes in someones chest, I’ll check it out.
