GC games remade for Wii?

Mario designer Shigeru Miyamoto says that he would like to remake some of his GameCube games for the Wii, altering them to be controlled with the Wiimote. "Of course," he says, "you can wander into a second hand shop and buy a lot of these games still, so I don't think we can release these games at full price. Since a lot of the development cost has already been accounted for, we'll be able to release these at a much more affordable price." No particular titles are mentioned. As an aside, Miyamoto notes that the controls for Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess have been modified, allowing the sword to be swung with the same motion on the Wiimote, while arrows are shot with the B button. The original setup was a complaint with the E3 demo in May.
