james bond 25

The James Bond series may be 55 years old, but it’s still the prettiest girl at the ball. After finishing their four-film distribution deal with Sony following the release of Spectre in 2015, 007 owners Eon Productions and MGM started shopping around for a new partner. Right now, the bulk of the suitors are the older, more established companies. However, it seems that Annapurna, the young hotshot behind some of the most interesting and daring movies of the past few years, has thrown its hat into the ring.

Daniel Craig Returning as James Bond

Daniel Craig has a love-hate relationship with James Bond. Recently the actor reiterated how much he loves playing 007, despite previous famous remarks indicating that he’d rather slash his wrists than consider starring in another James Bond movie while on the press tour for Spectre. Since then, there have been (false) rumors of Craig turning down anywhere from $100 million to $150 million to reprise his role.

Despite rumblings of other contenders like Tom Hiddleston being mentioned, producers still have Daniel Craig as their top choice to return to Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Now it sounds like they may have finally convinced him to return, at least if a new rumor is to be believed. Read More »

overboard remake

A remake of Overboard has always felt inevitable. The original 1987 romantic comedy, which stars Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, is an immediately recognizable title, and one that more than a few people gladly watch whenever it plays on cable for the billionth time. It’s an enjoyable enough romantic comedy that thrives on Russell and Hawn’s charisma. Hopefully, in the remake, Anna Faris (Observe and Report) and Eugenio Derbez (Instructions Not Included) are as charismatic of a pairing.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake

Over eight years ago, talk of a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake began. Hot Tub Time Machine director and Grosse Point Blank co-writer Steve Pink was hired to write and direct the remake, based on the wonderful comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, which was itself a remake of the 1964 film, Bedtime Story. Pink eventually departed from the project, which is up and running again with Rebel Wilson and (possibly) Anne Hathaway in the starring roles.

Christopher Nolan Directing James Bond

Last fall, there was a lot of buzz regarding whether or not Daniel Craig would eventually return to the role of James Bond. The actor was rather vocal about how exhausting the work on Spectre was, going so far as to say that he’d rather slash his wrists than do another James Bond movie at that time. Since then, he’s equated his answer to being the same he would give if someone asked him to run a marathon after just finishing another marathon, reiterating that he loves playing James Bond.

As of last year, Daniel Craig was still the first choice to play James Bond, according to the franchise executive producer, but that didn’t stop rumors from swirling about a possible replacement. One of those names was Tom Hardy, and in a recent interview he was hesitant to address any truth to those rumors simply because of his own personal philosophy. However, he had no problem putting forth his choice to direct a James Bond film: Christopher Nolan.

Valley Girl remake star

Nicolas Cage is very charismatic in Valley GirlMartha Coolidge‘s charming 1984 love story benefits greatly from his often endearing performance and goofy haircut. It’s not one of Cage’s more famous roles, so when it comes to the remake, its star, Josh Whitehouse, doesn’t exactly have a large shadow cast over him. But hopefully he’ll be able to bring as much energy and fun to the punk rock character as Cage did.

Joe Carnahan death wish script

Writer-director Joe Carnahan (Narc) exited the Death Wish remake over creative differences. He wrote the lead role with his frequent collaborator Frank Grillo (The Grey) in mind, but Paramount and MGM insisted on Bruce Willis starring in the film. That idea didn’t fly with Carnahan, so he went on to pursue other projects. Eli Roth (Knock Knock) eventually ended up in the director’s chair, but Carnahan has hopes of one day reworking his script into a film of his own.

Stargate Reboot

Audiences weren’t too keen to jump back into the world of Independence Day this past summer. Roland Emmerich‘s all-around underwhelming sequel failed to match half the success of its predecessor. The pricey sequel didn’t connect with audiences, meaning we probably won’t see Independence Day 3‘s intergalactic journey anytime soon. Another sequel we maybe shouldn’t expect from Stonewall director Roland Emmerich? The Stargate one he’s been planning a long time.

Below, learn more about why the Stargate reboot isn’t happening.

After all, Michael Winner’s original didn’t have a a lead villain, a choice that, by design, makes it one of the more disturbing revenge movies ever made. Let’s talk about this.
