Abstract

This article examines the relationship between texts that are reinvented for different media and/or contexts including: film remakes, prequels and sequels, video games that become films and vice versa, internet mashups, and television series that move across geographical borders. The article points to significant sources in this emerging field and presents some of the challenges that arise in relation to its study. In particular questions of originality, fidelity, repetition and difference as sources of pleasure, and subject position are examined, leading to suggestions for possible future research.
