Starsky and Hutch reboot

Update: Variety has learned Amazon has picked up James Gunn’s Starsky & Hutch reboot. The show has received a script-to-series commitment from the streaming service. With Amazon, Gunn believes they “have the most freedom to create something that is different, challenges the audience, and that strays outside the parameters of genre from time to time.”

There’s no shortage of cops or procedurals to watch on television these days. If watching cops or detectives is your thing, CBS and TNT have you covered on a daily basis. One procedural we don’t have in our lives yet but would tune in for has James Gunn‘s (Guardians of the Galaxy) name on it: a reboot of the ’70s ABC classic Starsky & Hutch. Gunn is reportedly co-writing a pilot, which, if he’s available and all goes according to plan, he would direct. However, the filmmaker tweeted that there’s “some misinformation” going around regarding the planned reboot.

Will Ferrell 100-Year-Old Man Movie

If you’ve wandered around a bookstore (yes, they still exist!) over the past couple of years, you’ve probably seen a copy of Jonas Jonasson‘s novel The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared in the best-seller section. The 2012 book was already adapted into a Swedish movie back in 2014, but now American studios are catching up, and CBS Films has tapped Will Ferrell to play the lead role in a new version of the story.

Black Samurai TV show

Starz isn’t on the same level as a powerhouse premium service like HBO, but they’re still one of the big players in that space, and they’ve recently made waves by catering to underserved audiences with shows like Power and Outlander (not to mention the splash they made this year with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods). Now they’re looking to get into the blaxploitation genre with a TV adaptation of Black Samuari, and they’ve found the perfect person to star: Common, who kicked some serious ass in John Wick: Chapter 2.

‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ Reboot Axed By NBC

Xena reboot

Two years ago, we learned that a Xena: Warrior Princess revival was in the works, which would explore a subtextual relationship between Xena and her companion Gabrielle that was rapidly becoming text in the original series.

In fact, writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach had said last year that he planned to fully explore the relationship between the two female heroes. But a few months after Grillo-Marxuach departed the project, NBC has canned the modern-day update of the Chakram-wielding female warrior.

anya taylor joy in talks for nosferatu

Both Anya Taylor-Joy and director Robert Eggers broke out into the horror scene with The Witch, a haunting and unsettling pseudo-morality tale that helped cement 2016 as a banner year for horror.

Now that Joy has solidified her standing as one of the most promising horror actresses today after turns in Split and Morgan, she and Eggers are reportedly teaming up again for his remake of Nosferatu.

A Nightmare on Elm Street and Critters Reboot

This past weekend saw audiences flock to theaters for some terror in the form of Annabelle: Creation. The prequel to Annabelle, which was a spin-off of The Conjuring, took the top spot at the box office with over $35 million, which isn’t bad for the second weekend in August. That’s the second satisfying horror flick that director David F. Sandberg has delivered, and he hopes to deliver more, perhaps with some recognizable franchise titles from decades passed.

While partaking in a discussion about Annabelle: Creation, Sandberg was asked which franchises he’d like to tinker with if an opportunity was available. Sandberg picked A Nightmare on Elm Street, a franchise that was rebooted with disappointing results, and Critters, a franchise that hasn’t been touched since 1992. Find out more below. Read More »

Stephen King's It

Audiences heading to see Annabelle: Creation this weekend (which is surprisingly good) will be treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. The preview consists of an entire scene, one of the most iconic moments of the book, and it sets the stage for what promises to be an unsettling adaptation of the classic horror novel.

For those of you who may not be into the scares of The Conjuring universe spin-off prequel (that’s a mouthful), we’ve already seen the scene in question, and provide a reaction to it below. Plus, if you’re looking for a new glimpse at Pennywise the Dancing Clown and the kids known as The Losers Club, you can see two new images from It down there as well. If you come with us, you’ll float too! Read More »

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

It’s kind of amazing that Mike Stoklasa‘s creation of RedLetterMedia and the character of Harry S. Plinkett has lasted so long after first finding viral fame for a seven-part takedown of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back in 2009. But the internet is full of plenty of wackier things, and despite the fact that this character is supremely annoying to listen to, his video reviews do make plenty of valid points, even if they are combined with some really lame attempts at humor.

While Star Wars has become a prime target for Harry S. Plinkett, every now and then he turns his attention to a movie that garnered a lot of attention from passionate fans and viewers. The Ghostbusters reboot from 2016 (or Ghostbusters: Answer the Call as it’s more officially titled) was certainly one of those movies, and even though it’s been over a year since it was released and most of us have moved on, Harry S. Plinkett has a one-hour takedown and breakdown of the film directed by Paul Feig. Read More »
