Deja vu

I'd like to see an old movie remade almost exactly in its original form. Of course, there would be new actors, crew, soundtrack, film equipment, special effects, etc., but I'd like to see the director mimic the original as faithfully as possible.

Classical music is recorded and performed all the time. Conductors infuse their own interpretation into the old works for sure, but typically don't modify the compositions in any other way.

It'd be an interesting experiment to see if the same could be applied to movies.
