Bit of a silly idea isn't it?
"The Lives of Others total cost came to $2 million and it grossed more than US$60 million worldwide as of May 2007. A possible Hollywood remake is said to be in the works, with Anthony Minghella or Sydney Pollack directing."
It only came out last year, and won an Academy Award for that matter. I don't really see how they think they'll make it better - Gary Sinise getting pencilled in as the Stasi agent doesn't sound all that appealing to me.
