Can it be remade ever again?

After all, 1997 was still the dark ages, compared to now. Wouldn't the woke burn down the studio now?

Please, no hobby-horse riding allowed here.

I never thought of 1997 as the dark ages.  Star Trek had already portrayed gay & lesbian relationships from 1987 onward.  Ditto Xena.

And of course strong female characters were prominent back to the 1980s.   Such as Cagney & Lacey which was a police procedural show whose stars were women.

Seems the only "holdovers" from the '54 TV presentation to the '57 film adaptation were JOSEPH SWEENY and GEORGE VASKOVEC.  Weren't any of the others interested, or was it thought their replacements were better?

TV actors were rarely considered good enough to appear in movies.  And movie actors usually looked-upon television as inferior.  (Kinda similar to how the US Senate views the House of Representatives.)

So little overlap.

There is truth in this, but actors still and often started working in TV before movies and vice versa (think STEVE McQUEEN MIA FARROW RYAN O'NEAL...) and when an actor was considered to have not enough box office appeal anymore they typically went to work in TV.
