Murder On The Orient Express cast

Besides its own director, no actors that we know of are officially attached to Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express remake, based on Agatha Christie‘s novel of the same name. Over the summer Angelina Jolie began circling the role of widowed socialite Harriet Hubbard, but last month she passed on the part. The newest actors to enter the mix are Dark Shadows co-stars Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The Lion King Remake

After delivering the massive blockbuster success that was the live-action remake of The Jungle Book (which pulled in nearly $966 million in the worldwide box office) Disney has lined up another remake of one of their animated classics featuring even more animals from the wild.

Walt Disney Studios has announced that they are working on a live-action remake of 1994’s animated hit The Lion King, and they’re bringing in The Jungle Book and Iron Man director Jon Favreau to be at the helm. Find out more about The Lion King remake after the jump. Read More »

SWAT Reboot

This fall, CBS revived MacGyver with a TV series reboot starring Lucas Till, and before that they successfully brought back Hawaii Five-O and The Odd Couple. Now they’re reaching back into the 1970s for another series reboot.

SWAT ran on CBS for just two seasons totaling 37 episodes from February 1975 to April 1976 and was turned into a feature film of the same name. Now it’s getting a series reboot at its home network with The Shield creator Shawn Ryan on board, as well as Fast & Furious franchise director Justin Lin.

scarface remake

It’s hard to get too worked up about Antoine Fuqua remaking Scarface. After all, Brian DePalma’s 1983 crime classic is a remake of Howard Hawks’ 1932 crime classic and, aside from the plot revolving around the rise and fall of a dangerous criminal, they couldn’t be more different from one another. Honestly, if someone wants to make a new Scarface ever 30 years or so to reflect the changing landscape of crime in America, I’d say just go for it. As long as each new filmmaker brings something new to the template, why not?

And from the sound of things, Fuqua’s film will align itself with what troubles us in 2016, using elements from the real world to explain the motivation of a new drug empire.

Spawn Reboot

Todd McFarlane has been talking about rebooting Spawn for the big screen since as far back as 2009. At one time he was touting the attachment of an Oscar-winning actor who kept bugging him about the script, and eventually it was determined that actor was probably Jamie Foxx. At the time, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star himself said that he was “aggressively pursuing” the lead role in the comic book adaptation, but three more years have gone by and nothing has happened. Now Todd McFarlane is again talking about the kind of Spawn movie he wants to make, and he has some concept art this time. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Live-Action Little Mermaid movie

Chloë Grace Moretz keeps busy. Maybe not Samuel L. Jackson busy, but the 19-year-old actress is seen pretty often on the big screen. This year, she starred in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Fifth Wave, and she has potentially two other movies coming out before 2016 wraps up. As of this moment, though, Moretz isn’t attached to any future projects, including Universal’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid. The actress isn’t taking a long hiatus from acting, but she is stepping back to reevaluate her choices.

Below, find out why Moretz dropped out of the live-action Little Mermaid movie.

high noon remake

High Noon is a movie so famous and influential that it’s pretty much impossible to tarnish its legacy. So while I could open this article about the new remake in the works over at Relativity Media by going “Ugh, how could they remake a bonafide classic like that?!”, I will instead open it with “You want to try your hand at remaking one of the most beloved and iconic westerns of all time? Okay. Fine. Go for it.”

Dune remake

Director Denis Villeneuve recently helmed his first science-fiction film Arrival. The Sicario director’s latest is already generating some great buzz, and our own Angie Han called it “brainy sci-fi with a big, bloody, beating heart.” Before that sci-fi drama even reaches theaters, Villeneuve has started shooting Blade Runner 2. The filmmaker is already considering other science-fiction projects as well, and if he had his druthers, one of them would be Dune. Below, read Villeneuve’s comments on a Dune remake.

The Toxic Avenger remake coming

The co-director of Sausage Party has signed on to reboot The Toxic Avenger. No, I’m not talking about Seth Rogen or Evan Goldberg, but Conrad Vernon, who co-directed the R-rated animated film alongside Greg Tiernan (its a common misconception that Goldberg and Rogen directed the film, as they co-wrote the screenplay and produced).
