It's a tough life for actors and film directors in Hollywood...making $20 millions plus per film. ...The ones in demand.
And it's tough too for films making one and $2 billions plus @ the box office.
It's a tough life for script writers lacking imagination.
It's much easier to do remakes, or follow the cartoons.

Brief, it's a tough life to be in the film industry, and to create from original imagination with a good entertaining message.
@ the end it all comes down to MONEY. Whatever sells, even if it's fake, or a remake.

I'm with you Mike.
