I agree. I think any way you look at it this ends up being confusing for the public. I remember when the news for this first arose every one was confused as to whether this was a sequel to the remake or the original. Even those who brought us this news couldn't give anyone a clear answer for at least a month.
I think most people will either think it's a sequel to the remake or a remake itself. No one is going to see a poster for this and go "oh yea, this must be a sequel to the original film".
