I would say all of you have given part of the true.
- Remaking movies with success in the past, assures some success in the present.
- It is not easy to find ideas (and ideas with success).
Furthermore, I suppose they will be able to use more special effects (not possible before), as well as updated events to make us believe it happens
nowadays and to scare some people thinking it is based on true events... Attract more people to the cinema, etc.
But, who knows their real reasons?
