Producer plans Barbarella remake

According to the BBC, “A remake of the cult 1960s science-fiction film Barbarella is in development”.
“Original producer Dino De Laurentiis has secured the rights to remake the 1968 film, which starred Jane Fonda.”
Oh for the love of scifi, create something new! Barbarella is a cult favourite, don’t “remake” it! Why, oh why, oh why do you have to remake something that was already good? Why don’t you pick something crap and unloved, and try to improve on that (maybe like Heat)?
Yes, I’m back at work and grumpy as hell.
