Long Good Friday remake?

With the next Olympics in Japan, how about a remake set in Japanese gang culture. I have always thought the plot was superb and transferable for remakes.

    They did it perfect the first time. There is no need for a remake! And there's no one could replace the late great Bobs Hoskins as Harold Shand!

    I'd like to see the Japanese translation of "Shattaaap you long streak of paralysed piss!!!"

    Agreed. Look what happened to 'Get Carter'!

    God, that was awful! And they ruined the brilliant theme by Roy Budd!

    Why would you remake such a classic?

    Exactly, the reason why I'm not going to bother with 'The Magnificent Seven' remake. Its been done brilliantly (Twice!!)

    If its been done brilliantly twice, is that not a thumbs up for remakes?
