JP4 won't be a remake. It'll be... <scary music>... a sequel.

Cesta do pravěku ("journey to primordial time" in Czech... or is it "path" 
instead of "journey", or is that only in Slovak?) is indeed awesome and an 
essential part of any classical education. A remake of that one might work... 
but I don't quite see the point in doing one... :-) Make sure you don't get the 
version with the Americanized beginning.
