The work of the late Patrick Swayze has already resulted in a couple of reboots and remakes with Red Dawn in 2012 and Point Break coming this Christmas. And now one more is on the way, but the role originated by the late actor will undergo a major change.
MGM is working on a remake of the 1980s action flick Road House, but rather than getting a young actor from today’s line-up of desired hunks, the studio has picked UFC fighter turned actress Ronda Rousey to take the lead role. Read More »

A remake of Suspiria, Dario Argento‘s gorgeous and dreamlike tale of witchcraft at a boarding school for dance, has been in the works for a very long time. For most of that period, David Gordon Green was planning to direct the film. He’s said his version was going to be “a very faithful, extremely elegant opera. I don’t mean musical opera, but it would be incredibly heightened music, and heightened and very operatic and elegant sets.”
When Green pulled away from the film, he did say that it would still be made, by “a great Italian director.” Now we know that he was talking about Luca Guadagnino, whose film I Am Love was released in 2009, and who has the new movie A Bigger Splash at the Venice Film Festival. Guadagnino, who was previously set to produce Green’s version, says Suspiria is next for him, and his version, he says, will be “very different.” Read More »
Just this week we learned that DreamWorks would not be renewing their deal with Disney when it expires in 2016. And in anticipation of the contract expiring, Steven Spielberg has been in talks with Universal to become the new home to the filmmaker’s production company.
Since this deal was revealed, there’s been a lot of chatter about Universal wanting to reboot Spielberg’s original blockbuster Jaws and the time traveling franchise that he produced, Back to the Future. But these assumptions are being blown out of proportion, and as of now, there’s no real indication that either the studio or Spielberg have any plans to touch those properties.

Whether you like it or not, the reboot of Ghostbusters is happening. It’s one thing to simply not want a movie that you love to get remade, but it’s another to be belligerent about the fact that the movie is utilizing four females in the lead role as the title paranormal investigators and exterminators.
While some merely don’t like the talent involved, whether it’s director Paul Feig or stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, sadly, there are many chauvinistic fans out there who simply can’t accept the fact that four women are leading a Ghostbusters movie.
And as a way to fire back at all the haters our there, McCarthy has just posted a picture on Instagram that shows there are plenty more women working on the movie than the four leading ladies. Check out the Ghostbusters reboot girl power below! Read More »
Sony and Escape Artists are still trying to bring an old series of 30-minute toy commercials back to the big screen, but somehow, cracking the approach to Masters of the Universe has proven difficult. A few approaches have been taken over the past decade, from Justin Marks’ well-regarded script Grayskull that fell by the wayside long ago, to other efforts that have also failed to hit the screen. (So far, at least. )
Now Christopher Yost, who wrote on Thor: The Dark World and has his hands in Thor: Ragnarok as well, is going to sharpen He-Man’s sword. Read More »

In Ghostbusters, the original film, the closest Annie Potts got to suiting up for action was putting on a come-hither look for Harold Ramis’s character Egon.
In Ghostbusters, the new film from Paul Feig, Chris Hemsworth plays a similar receptionist character to the one played by Potts in the original.

Check out the first Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters shot below. Read More »
