The very second people fell in love with Gareth Evans‘ 2011 Indonesian martial arts film, The Raid, two things became inevitable: a sequel and a remake. That’s just the way the business works. While The Raid 2 is now in theaters (and even better than the original), The Raid remake is still a bit of a mystery.

What we do know is Patrick Hughes, the director of this year’s forthcoming Expendables 3, is at the helm and in a new interview he revealed a bunch of new details. Among them is the fact the remake will follow a special DEA task force. Read his quotes below. Read More »

Rosemary's Baby trailer

TV, like cinema, is currently awash with new takes on old movies. Prequels to both Psycho and Silence of the Lambs are currently on the air, with a reimagined version of the Coen Brothers’ Fargo set to debut this week. Now, coming up on the horizon at NBC is a new Rosemary’s Baby, starring Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams, and Jason Isaacs.

If you want to get real technical about it, this miniseries isn’t a remake of the Roman Polanski film but a fresh adaptation of Ira Levin‘s novel. Either way, though, the story remains the same: attractive young couple gets pregnant, but then comes to realize that something is not right. Earlier teasers have been pretty stingy about the footage, but the new minute-long trailer offers plenty to look at. Watch the video after the jump.

new Battlestar Galactica movie

Jack Paglen has only one produced screenplay credit to his name, but it’s a big one: Transcendence, the directorial debut of cinematographer Wally Pfister. Now he might have a second big credit: the new Battlestar Galactica movie, which Universal has been developing off and on for the past few years. But don’t expect any continuation of the story told in Ronald D. Moore’s revival that began a decade ago. This will be an all-new Battlestar. Read More »

The Karate Kid sequel director hired

When The Karate Kid was released in theaters in May 2010, the box office surpassed all expectations (grossing $176 million domestic and about $182 internationally). Columbia Pictures was quick to announce that the company would begin development on a sequel. Kung Fu Panda screenwriters Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reif were tapped to pen the follow-up, but development of the Karate Kid sequel has not been as quick. In 2012, Zak Penn, the writer of X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk, was brought on to rewrite the sequel screenplay. Two years later and Sony has hired Breck Eisner to be the Karate Kid sequel director.
