They guys over at ComicBookMovie have some cool stuff, that is why we love them.. Check it out..
MGM has hired Gran Torino scribe Nick Schenk to work on a new script for their long in development remake of Paul Verhoeven’s classic sci-fi flick..
According to THR Schenk will come aboard the movie which still has director Jose Padilha attached. The two had been working together on action thriller Tri-Border
MGM have been working on getting a remake (reboot, re-imagining – whatever word they want to use) of Robocop off the ground for years now but we haven’t heard too much about it since Padila was said to have taken the director’s chair. Apparently they hope to shoot the movie in the Summer although no actor has been cast in the lead role yet. Here is what Padilha had to say about the movie previously..
Wars in the future are going to be fought with drones. We won
I know what you’re thinking. There are too many remakes already, don’t give Hollywood any more ideas. Normally, I agree, and I’d hate to see most of my beloved80′s movies remade. (To be fair, they did a good job with Footloose.) Most of the time I’m ambivalent about remakes, but this is one case in which a remake is a good idea.
The official plot synopsis for Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of the 2003 Korean film Oldboy has hit the web. Sounding a lot like the original film (as expected), check it out after the jump!
Collider has received some plot details for various Lionsgate films that will be out in the future, and one of those films was for Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin and set to begin production sometime next Spring (Collider says that the film will be released sometime next year). The below synopsis sounds very similar to the plot for the original film (as expected, of course), so while not very revealing, it’s certainly worth a look…
Cast: Josh Brolin
Director: Spike Lee
Writer: Mark Protosevich
A man kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughter
If there’s ever been a reason to rise up in the streets and burn Hollywood to the ground this is surely one of them. Universal Pictures is so happy with the sales of the recent Scarface Blu-Ray release that they have decided to remake it again for the third time. Yes, a third time. According to Deadline the new version would be an amalgamation of the previous two films focusing on both the immigrants journey to the US as well as the subsequent rise to power through the drug trade. While the Scarface of the 80′s was no blockbuster it has over the years become a cult hit that has influenced both filmmakers and musicians from all walks of life and has sold well over 10 million DVDs. That translates to a lot of money.
Hollywood’s insistence to continually remake films over and over again and not take chance never ceases to amaze me. There are no shortage of great ideas out there, just a real lack of guts on Hollywood’s part in refusing to take a chance on them.

Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Julia Ormond, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni and Harry Lennix, the reboot is slated for theaters June 14th, 2013!
IM Global will be bringing us a remake of the Thai classic whether we like it or not. But Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm will be helming so there is hope. Click for the details..
Well you learn something new every day. Apparently 13: Game Of Death was based on a comic book called “13th Quiz Show”. If you haven’t heard of it, the movie was released in 2006 and was directed by Chukiat Sakveerakul. It was about a man who is led through progressively challenging, degrading and dangerous stunts by mysterious callers from an underground reality game show.
Now Deadline report that IM Global will be producing an American remake with Daniel Stamm as director and co-writer along with David Birke. The remake’s title will be shortened to 13. I was a big fan of Stamm’s The Last Exorcism (until the end anyway) so I have some hope for this. If you haven’t seen the original and are a fan of foreign cinema check it out, it’s well worth a look.
I’m not sure that this movie needed a remake as the original was so well done and still stands up pretty well. The remake looks to be much meaner film than the original and from earlier reviews does not pull any punches. Here’s three previews to give you a peek at what’s in store in this remake.
David and Amy Sumner, a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife, return to her small hometown in the deep South to prepare the family home for sale after her father’s death. Once there, tensions build in their marriage and old conflicts re-emerge with the locals, including Amy’s ex-boyfriend Charlie, leading to a violent confrontation.
The movie is scheduled for release on September 16th 2010.
There’s been a lot talk lately about Josh Brolin starring in Spike Lee’s remake of the classic film Oldboy and now it is official. Brolin is attached to the film and will be playing the lead character of Oh Daesu from the original. Also rumored to be taking the role of the evil counterpart Woo-Jin Lee is Christian Bale. These two actors combined with Spike Lee’s talent for story telling could make for a very dynamic retelling of the original story. The only concern I would have for this remake is how much of the story would have to changed for American audiences for it to be more palatable. There’s a lot of violence and the twist at the end of the movie will definitely be reworked or this movie will not make a dollar in American theaters and that’s super sad. Check out the trailer for the original for a taste of what’s to come (hopefully).
It’s a shame, and many fans will be disappointed but Raimi will only be producing the new addition to the Evil Dead series. The director will be..
Brett Ratner! Only kidding. Bloody Disgusting have unearthed who will step into Sam Rami’s shoes for the new installment in the Evil Dead franchise..
In an exclusive scoop, we’re told that Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) is directing for Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures and Madnate. The remake was announced way back in 2004. No word on casting or if Bruce Campbell will return.
The site also reveal that Raimi will be on board as producer, and the movie will be a “quasi-remake”. I assume that means it will tell roughly the same story but not EXACTLY the same, and hope beyond hoe that Bruce Campbell will be involved. Alvarez has only previously directed the very impressive short film Panic Attack! back in 2009. Check it out below.
Bruce Campbell confirms a new Evil Dead movie is in the works. Looks like this one is a remake and not a continuation in the series.
Seems this one is no longer a rumor. Confirming via Twitter, Campbell has put all the gossip and hearsay to rest.
You can see the actual Tweet on your left. Speaking back in April when this was still in the very earliest of stages, Campbell had the following to say regarding the script:
We are remaking Evil Dead. The script is awesome. I will be one of the producers and possibly play the milk man.In all honesty, we would all love to make another Evil Dead movie. When that will happen? Who can say
This could be the closest this excellent director could get to a CBM as word is Lee is in talks to direct the Hollywood version of the original Manga/Dark Horse comic book..
If you have seen Park Chan Wook’s original Oldboy then you know that it wouldn’t exactly seem like a natural fit for Steven Spielberg and Will Smith. But they are the heavy hitters originally in line to bring an American remake(although their version was said to be a more direct adaptation of the original Manga) to the screen. Well, Spielberg is out but Twitchfilm reports that another high profile director may take his place..
Twitch has learned that Spike Lee is currently in talks to direct the long-rumored Hollywood remake of Park Chan-Wook
Check out a second, pretty cool TV Spot for Marcus Nispel’s Conan remake featuring extended footage of the reserved little fella in action…
I still don’t like the American accents, but it looks like it could be fun. Then again so did Clash Of The Titans! Momoa is not a worry for me after seeing him excel as the quite similar Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Either way, we’l find out for ourselves when the movie hits theaters August 19th.
Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film. A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols, Leo Howard, Sa
Relativity Media is finally ready to resurrect The Crow, as 28 Weeks Later and Intruders helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has officially closed a deal to direct the studio’s re-invention of the 1994 action cult classic, reports Variety.
Though no talent is attached yet, Relativity is looking to put The Crow into production this fall. Fresnadillo will collaboratively develop the screenplay once a writer is attached to adapt the script from James O’Barr’s comic book series, which has sold more than a quarter-million copies worldwide.
It is now confirmed that the reboot will again follow cult hero Eric Draven, who is resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife’s murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter.
“The original Crow was groundbreaking cinema; its gothic visual and musical ideas influenced a generation and cinema itself,” said producer Edward R. Pressman. “With Juan Carlos, we have every confidence that his new Crow will have a similar impact on the contemporary audience.”
The original, which grossed $51 million stateside, starred Brandon Lee, who was killed in a tragic accident during filming. Pic was subsequently dedicated to his memory, as well as his fiancee Eliza Hutton. It spawned three sequels that respectively starred Vincent Perez, Eric Mabius and Edward Furlong as The Crow, along with a TV series toplined by Mark Dacascos.
The Crow was and still is one of my favorite movies and I really see no point in remaking it now. The only reason the movie was even put in theaters was because of Brandon Lee’s death or it would have gone straight to video and have been immediately forgotten. I’m glad it wasn’t forgotten but to remake it because you think you can do it better seems kind of childish. Why not come up with your own idea? The lack of creativity in Hollywood bores me to tears these days…
Apparently it wasn’t enough to have 3 twilight movies, now we have what look to be a Twilight spinoff in the new Teen Wolf remake from MTV. The original Teen Wolf was full of Camp and fun, a sideways comedic look at what was before scary movie fodder. Apparently they have decided to go in a different direction. Lots of pretentious posing from lacrosse playing douchebags here. Werewolf abs are hot these days. Just don’t expect me to watch…
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are the modern day version of Laurel and Hardy. I love their chemistry, their energy, and the fact that like me, they are a bunchy of big nerds. In this clip from collegehumor.com they have attempted to shoot a remake of starwars but run into a few difficulties in production. This is awesomeness in its purest form….
Of all the remakes, reboots, and comic imaginations coming out this summer, this is probably the least interesting to me. I grew up knowing of Conan the comic but never really watched the movie version starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. After watching this teaser I’m not sure I’m gonna be going out of my way anytime soon to check this version out either. Enjoy your spooky dark Conan trailer…
