Jaws will never be touched, aside from the fact that it's such an iconic piece of cinema there isn't anything you can really do to improve it. The Shark still looks fine in most shots, atmosphere and score are flawless and the cast and characters play off each other perfectly.
Second Jaws is not franchise material, With all the facts and knowledge we have are sharks now.. You might be to pull a 1 off on a rogue shark that got to large and started preying on humans. After that it basically becomes as ridiculous as the other 3 sequels went. Jaws is one of those films that is a perfect example of lighting in a bottle.... Not it's sequels, Deep Blue Sea, The Reef, The Shallows or The Meg with all there budget and updated technology have come close.
The Thing Prequel was RUINED by the studio, you should check out all the behind the scenes on that film with the puppets and animatronic's which were beautiful and already made for the film. Then the studio demanded they all were to be CGI and you can tell the CGI isn't polished, it was rushed and a lot of it had to be reshot. Had the studio let the filmmakers do the film the way they wanted it would have turned out a much better film.
