Summary This book provides a dynamic investigation of processes of cultural reproduction - remaking and remodelling - in film, television and new media. Drawing on a wide variety of Hollywood and other examples, this impressive group of contributors considers a wide range of film adaptations, remakes and fan productions from various industrial, textual and critical perspectives. Their case studies discuss new versions of popular texts such as "The Manchurian Candidate", "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and" The Stepford Wives". "They provide new perspectives on the unlimited cultural production of classics like "The Wizard of Oz", "Wuthering Heights" and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", and they analyze the groundbreaking work of fan appropriations, including Batman and Spiderman fanvids, and fanfic trailer revisions for "The Shining" and television's "The Adventures of Merlin."
