We Want a Watership Down CGI Remake sign now

I believe that there should be an updated remake of the 1978 animated film 'Watership Down', which itself is based on the 1972 novel by Richard Adams. The story is set in the British countryside and about a group of rabbits who leave their home warren due to one of them having a vision of the warren's impending doom by real-estate developers. They set out to find a new warren to live in: upon finding one (after many perils on their journey), they're faced with the prospect of how their warren will develop due to there being no females in the group. For this, they decide to infiltrate and steal females from another warren: this being dangerous due to the warren being incredibly strict and led by a ruthless dictator-like rabbit.
The reason that this film should be remade is because of the nostalgic value it would hold for fans of the original novel, and also because it is a generally original idea for a film company to take interest in.
The remake could be updated and presented in a format suited to photorealistic CGI, or even live action animals with slight digital enhancements. Also ,by staying more truthful to the source material and not 'watering down' any of the dark elements of the novel, this could make the film longer and more suitable for a teenage audience (in the U.K, the rating could mainly be a 12A).
Judging from what has been said online, there are also several other people who wish for there to be a 'Watership Down' remake. So if you love the novel and wish for a remake, please sign!!!

    My favorite book! It thrives for a theractial rebirth. With the effects of the day, it would be amazing! Legend of The Guardians, the Owls of Ga'Holle is a great great example, of 3D quality. Sadly, it lacked the heart that Watership Down does.

    It MUST be truthful to the book! Dark and without mercy. The book was not meant for little kids so don't try and make the movie!

    Yes, Watership Down should be remade. The original film is amazing, but while we could keep the storyline, it could earn great potential with better animation/coloring

    Please remake the movie! So much could be done with this piece! Richard Adams created something absolutely brilliant and although I do enjoy the original film version, I think at this day in age with all the technology we have a available this could turn

    This has been something I have been thinking about for a long time - it actually hits me as something Tim Burton would be interesting in, as he is usually creating darker, gothic cinematic productions. It would be fantastic to see the best classic redone
