It's probably a waste of time, but I love the idea of remaking a movie from the 80s. At the time it was from a well known writer (now dead) but the movie was not a success. I honestly believe I may be the only one who even remembers it. I'd love to take the essence of the idea, modernize it, and improve on the original in hopes of making it a hit. My question is: A) is this a waste of time? B) can I use it as a "calling card script" rather than expecting it to be sold and therefore not worry about rights, etc, C) what am I not considering? Thanks! Happy 2021!
