I think the silence from them is a good thing... at least at this point in time. If it was out of the question, then I would imagine PPS would have said so already. I'm sure they've seen the thread as it has their name in the title!
For those who don't think the remake is a good idea, that's fine. There are many who would like Stern or JJP skipping their next unplanned title for a MM remake. Keep in mind that they are in business to make money. If there's money to be made, then it will happen. If it's successful, then there will be more remakes. If it's not, there won't be.
An Expo announcement would be really cool. I'll bring my checkbook just in case.
