Fans of the original “Memento” aren’t too happy that the film is being remade.

It was announced Monday that Christopher Nolan‘s “Memento” is being remade by independent AMBI Pictures, which acquired the remake rights from Exclusive Media Group in September, and fans were quick to take to Twitter to announce their outrage about the remake.

“They’re remaking ‘Memento?’” One user wrote. “Hollywood you stupid lizard f-cks.”

“Hollywood has decided to remake ‘Memento,’” said another user. “Hollywood is officially out of ideas.”

Not only was “Memento” Nolan’s breakout film, it was also a family affair, as he adapted the script from his brother Jonathan Nolan’s short story  “Memento Mori.” The non-chronological film starred Guy Pearce as an amnesiac.

“Memento” premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in 2000 and grossed nearly $40 million at the box office. It also received Oscar nominations for screenplay and editing, and has a stellar review of 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
