Is Instant Reboot the new big thing in Hollywood?

Hollywood did a few years of double takes, where they did 2 movies with the same story in the same year: 2 comet movies, 2 bugs movies, 2 mars movies.

Then we got instant remakes.  Open Your Eyes / Vanilla Sky being the most egregious, as the same actress was in both.  The Hulk (2003 / 2008) was a more recent instance.

Now, apparently, we get instant reboot.  Spider Man 4 is going to be a reboot of the series, with all the old cast crew gone.

I wonder what’s next.  Maybe we could get concurrent instant reboots, sort of a combo of instant reboot and double takes, so we get 2 versions of the same movies in a trilogy out each year.
