Avatar: This hugely successful James Cameron movie was a remake of an idea for a movie that you had in 2002. Too bad you never followed through on it.

Eraserhead: The 1977 David Lynch film was actually a remake of popular film "—.-.-...—.-" from the planet Rebrevon in the NGC 1300 Galaxy.
Cats: Not many film fans are aware that the 2019 release of Cats was actually based on a beloved common household pet.
