Would Hollywood dare to remake this film today?

No. I really believe that they wouldn't. I'm sure that there's some young, budding Director out there who believes that he can make a name for himself in re-making this but any studio would look at it and think, "career suicide". Some films can only be made once and given what reaction this film provoked the first time around, I would hate to think what would happen now.

Films are themselves. Anyone stupid enough to want to remake what it arguably the most influential artistic work made since the era of the ancient Greeks would be on a hiding to nothing.
Some people don't seem to understand: before this dazzling work, the cinema was barely beyond the fairground level, culturally. After 'The Birth of a Nation' it was the most vibrant, influential art that our species had created. Without the expressive dimensions given to the cinema by solely this film, almost nothing of value that followed would have been possible.
