There is little doubt that the Harry Potter films were amazing. But should the J.K. Rowling books get a new adaptation for the younger generation? Jason Isaacs has just been asked about the possibility and he isn't having any of it.

Isaacs recently spoke to Comicbook.com to promote his new film Scoob! where he provides the voice of Dick Dastardly. Interestingly, the conversation moved to a possible remake and the Star Trek Discovery actor was quick to point out that the original movies were fine the way they were.

"So [the Harry Potter movies are] seven brilliant books that turned into, that were made into eight brilliant movies. Do I think anyone should remake them? As much as I think anyone should remake The Godfather or Some Like it Hot, or anything that was brilliant," Isaacs said. "I thought they were perfectly made at the perfect time by the perfect people, and that it would be insanity to remake them."

We'll have to agree with Isaacs on this one considering that it's hard to imagine anybody else playing Lucius Malfoy. On the other hand, if a remake does happen, he stated that he needs to be a part of it. "Of course if they do [a remake], I hope they give me a call," Isaacs said.

For now, it doesn't look like Warner Bros. has any plans of revisiting the Harry Potter books. Nevertheless, if it does happen, we're hoping they give Isaacs a call.
