At one point or another, Hollywood is going to remake every single popular property to light up a theatre. While we've already seen a wealth of franchises remade and rebooted over the years, studios are ramping up production on more than ever before right now, with everything from The Matrix to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (no, really) set for remakes at some point in the future.

However, that doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing. When the craze truly kicked off in the 2000s, remakes were mostly lazy cash-ins that added absolutely nothing to the original, but now things are starting to change. Directors are now showing the world that you can remake a movie without simply rehashing what came before, instead presenting familiar material in new, original ways that can rival the older version.

Of course that doesn't happen every time, but there are plenty of exciting remakes currently in production and eyeing up a 2019 release date that you probably didn't even know about. While they might turn out to be another Cabin Fever or Psycho, they undoubtedly have the potential to come out of nowhere and give audiences something they never knew they needed.
