Directors who do a Hollywood remake of their own film

My first thought was 'sell out', why would you remake something that completely works the first time around? The original was good enough that I'll probably be a sucker and go see this one too, especially since Khondji's involved as well as Naomi Watts and Tim Roth. It just saddens me when money drives the artistry and not vice versa. Also it sounds like they've neutered the ending, this is the description from imdb:
In this exploration of our violent society and how depictions of violence reflect and shape our culture, director Michael Haneke retells the story, through the eyes of middle-class housewife Anna (Naomi Watts), of how she and her husband George (Tim Roth) and their 10 years old son Georgie, submitted both physically and mentally to the tortures and death enforced upon them by two young unexpected visitors at their weekend vacation retreat near the lake.

Alfred Hitchcock "The Man who knew to much"
The Spanish director of the film I cant remember the name of was involved in the remake "Vanilla Sky"
Although Tobe Hooper wasnt involved I believe both Texas chainsaw massacres had the same DOP
Sam Raimi "Evil dead 1" - "Evil Dead 2" theyre basically the same movie
I would argue "Rambo: First Blood" - "Rambo 2"
There are other hitchcock films aswell, I think this would be a very long list...
Oh "Boogie nights" was remade from his own film "Superstar"
