The Rod Lurie-directed remake of 'Straw Dogs' came and went over the weekend with a whimper: the thriller grossed an estimated $5 million, good for a disappointing fifth place at the box office. Not that 'Straw Dogs' will make Hollywood stop churning out remakes. "Studios are fixated on the idea of pre-sold or recognizable brands," Deadline reporter Mike Fleming told HuffPost, "and sometimes they rely too much on those brands. But it's still much easier to make a buck on." And how! Ahead, 16 coming remakes that will hit theaters in the next few years.
