Sure, films based on the canonical stories are constantly getting remade. There are endless versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles for example. But what about the non-canonical films?
How about remaking the Rathbone films or a new version of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes or a new film version of The Seven Percent Solution. Of course copyright has a lot to do with why these films have not been remade but, given that every other film going seems to get rebooted (Spider-man, Superman etc) why not one of these?
Do you have any Sherlock Holmes film favourites that you'd like to see remade? If so, who would you like to see cast?
