Kubrick's A Space Odyssey does not need to be remade.
Kubrick often made films like a "dream"; sometimes random images that evoke emotions.
That works great for 2001A Space Odyssey
Just look at 2010, typical linear story arc with lots of dialogue: bo-ring!
2010 is a story, 2001 is art.
I agree that it doesn't need to be remade, though in some ways it's a reflection of the era in which it was filmed. The late 1960's were the flowering of visual and aural psychedelia and the movie was a stoner's dream-come-true. The aforementioned "10 minute wormhole sequence" was an obvious high point in that respect, but what I remember being the standout sequence was the slow docking of the spacecraft with the space station to the tune of The Blue Danube. That experience, under the influence of the "pernicious" chemical of the day and in a Cinerama theater (It was filmed in enhanced Panavision but initially shown on Cinerama screens.) is something I remember vividly fifty years later. The "Thus Spake Zarathustra" planet alignment sequence is another mind-blower, as the kids used to say. The image of the rotating "star baby" at the end too, showing that even out of the sterility man had created for himself could come renewal. Even the first image, the MGM lion rendered graphically in the style of the Zig Zag rolling papers guy, created a buzz around the film that made it a counterculture must-see as well as a more mainstream hit.
No amount of dialogue or linear storytelling could convey what Kubrick did visually in the opening sequence, in which the ape toying with a bone discovers he can make it an instrument and immediately slaughters one of the placid creatures which had been up until then peacefully grazing alongside the ape. It escalates to combat with other apes, the ape throws the bone into the air in triumph and the spinning bone becomes the spaceship, thereby tying the future man who has mastered space to the ape who has learned to kill. How could that ever be expressed in dialogue?
