    Default American remakes of foreign movies and TV shows you wanna see?

    Would love an American version of The Club, a 1980 Aussie football movie where : Boardroom and dressing-room intrigues spill on to the field at the Australian Rules football club. (IMDB)
    Its a lot like Any Given Sunday where legendary players face their final days and a promising new talent is caught in a messy scandal (sound familiar?)

    also Little Lunch . TV Mocumentary about Aussie elementary school kids and their playtime hijinks.

    Others?

    Gamera and Ultraman are two Japanese kaiju franchises I'd like to see with big budget Hollywood CGI ala the new Godzilla movies.

    Kind of in the opposite direction, I'd love to see a Japanese tokusatsu version of Batman...

    In agreement with you about kaiju getting the Hollywood/CGI treatment, I'd also include...

    Spectreman

    Extras. So much potential in a US tv/film rich setting.

    Accident

    A movie about a hitman who kills his targets by causing "accidents". The idea is pretty great but the execution was lacking. I think a good hollywood director with a decent budget would do a better job.

    The same could be said about Super Sentai. Jury's still out on that though.
