Little Women

The March sisters are coming to The CW, sort of. The network has put into development Little Women, an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott‘s classic coming-of-age novel about four sisters in Civil War-era Massachusetts.

In the new show, however, the March girls won’t be sisters but half sisters. Also, they now live in dystopian Philadelphia. And they’re out to uncover a massive conspiracy. Plus, the tone will be “hyper-stylized” and “gritty.” But other than that, it’s totally the Little Women you remember, they swear! Get all the details on the Little Women gritty reboot after the jump.  Read More »

El Chapo Movie

Ridley Scott may go back to the drug trade at some point in the future. The director explored some ugly inevitabilities of the drug trade in The Counselor, and now he is signed to make a film based on Don Winslow‘s recent novel The Cartel.

The novel, which follows ten years’ worth of the diverging paths of two former friends, one in the DEA and the other in a drug cartel, is based in part on the story of Cartel boss Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, who has made global headlines since escaping from a Mexican prison earlier this month. While The Cartel won’t quite be an El Chapo movie, but it might be close.

Update: Following the initial report about this project, further info emerged saying that Leonardo DiCaprio is being courted to play the character Keller. More below.

Video game movies coming soon

It’s no secret that the majority of movies based on video games are not very good. We’re not talking about movies set in the world of gaming or featuring fictional and real video games like TRON, Wreck-It Ralph, and this week’s release of Pixels. We’re talking about movies based on an existing video game title being brought to the big screen.

The first video game movie was Super Mario Bros. in 1993, and while that movie should have been terrible enough to kill the entire subgenre (the recent Honest Trailer for the film illustrates that pretty well), there have been about 26 video game movies released theatrically since then, and not one of them deserves to be called great (many of them can’t even be called okay).

However, there might be a chance that the future has some genuinely good video game movies on the horizon, that is if the talent attached to some forthcoming projects is any indicator. Below, we look at seven forthcoming video game movies that could break the apparent curse that plagues the subgenre.

Check out some promising video game movies coming soon after the jump!
