Different movies same plot?

What is it called when different movies share the same plot, such as all those different versions of Cinderella? I remember there's a term for this but can't remember what it is.


No, I know it's not plagiarism.

    Well when you are using an existing story line and its basic plot or premise, but than create a different version it is sometimes called a "Re-Imagining" or "Re-Imagination" of the original story.

    I googled for you, this is what I found

    Remake - Recreating a previously released film.

    Reboot - Doing a "fresh start" re-launch of a previously established franchise or character.

    Reinterpretation - Creating a unique new cinematic vision of literary source material.
