Associate Professor Daniel Herbert recently published the book, Film Remakes and Franchises (Rutgers University Press, 2018). The book "examines how remakes and sequels have been central to the film industry from its very inception, yet it also considers how the recent trends toward reboots and transmedia franchises depart from those historical precedents. [...] A lively and accessible overview that covers everything from You’ve Got Mail to The Force Awakens, Film Remakes and Franchises raises important questions about the intersection of business and creativity in Hollywood today."
