What's old is new again! Fifteen-year-old Chloe Moretz recently landed the leading role in the forthcoming remake of Carrie, a character first made famous by Sissy Spacek in 1976. And the Stephen King thriller isn't the only reboot coming our way: Carey Mulligan is starring in a fresh take on The Great Gatsby, while new versions of Annie and A Star is Born are also in the works. It’s not that Hollywood is fresh out of new ideas—it’s that these ideas are just so worthy of watching, generation after generation. Check out some of our favorites in the gallery.
