A flim that should be a remake:London After Midnight(1927)!

With the release of The Hunchback of Notre Dame Ultimate Edition with one of greatest Slient Era actor of all-time Lon Chaney.
Who here thinks that with all these remakes why not make a flim no-one alive has ever seen London After Midnight(1927)!
This is one of the lost flims,all we have are just some still pics.
If one could find the script (or make one up )and get some great artists for making this kind of flim.I would love see this made somewere down the road.
Any one else thinks this should be made?

It seems that the story itself is just not very good, so it would need some major changes, but I'd love to see them recreate the makeup. A CGI film maybe?

Or we could make a rap musical called "Compton After Midnight".

Seriously, though, (to the original poster) as much as I'd like to see the original, I wouldn't want to see a remake/re-imagining.

Yes your right but Bela looks nothing like Lon Chaney not by mile his look in the 1927 verison is so cool.

I'm all for a remake with the original actors' faces CG'd on silent re-enactors. And you can disguise the obvious FX shots by making the movie look silently deteriorated!

So we're dragging the anti-rap thing into non-related threads and forums now? Please.

I'm not so much in favor of a remake, but Mark of the Vampire isn't much of one, either. It's a fun little way to kill an hour, but the hatchet job the powers that be did on the final product makes it an uneven mess.
