Remake of a movie

I want to do a remake of a movie that is in the public domain.  A)  Can I copyright my version?  I want to use teh characters but change the plot a little
B)  Can i get a copyright in teh screenplay and the movie?  Is this a derivative work - am I losing rights since it is based on a work in the public domain?
C)  What rights would I have in the remake.  I want to distribute it.
Thank you.
 Huh
