There’s a very strong argument to be made that there’s no need to remake Jacques Audiard‘s A Prophet in the first place. But thanks to Sony Pictures, it’s happening whether you like it or not, so perhaps we should just be relieved they’ve enlisted some solid talent to help it come to life. Sam Raimi is reportedly in talks to direct the thriller, which is being written by Dennis Lehane. Read More »

In retrospect, the return of Cruel Intentions seems as predictable as the plot of Cruel Intentions itself. Everything else we loved in the ’90s is getting resurrected, so of course we should’ve known that’d include this salacious 1999 teen drama. To be more specific, NBC is the one bringing Cruel Intentions back, as a TV series that’ll serve as a sequel to the original movie. So… how does that work, exactly? Find out after the jump.

After making his name on crime dramas set in his native Boston, Dennis Lehane is getting his next bit of inspiration from outside the country. The Shutter Island author has been tapped to write Sony’s English-language remake of A Prophet (a.k.a. Un prophète), Jacques Audiard‘s acclaimed French crime drama. More details on the upcoming film after the jump.
To say Summit’s Highlander reboot has been as long-lived as its characters would be a massive exaggeration, obviously, but it has been kicking around for quite a while now. And it’ll be sticking around for some time yet, as it’s now headed back to square one. Ryan Reynolds has just dropped out of the project, months after director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo exited. Hit the jump to get the details.

Even among this summer’s crowded lineup of blockbuster sequels, Fast and Furious 6 manages to stand out as one of the most highly anticipated releases of early summer. The trailers and promos so far have been gloriously high-octane, highlighting the fancy automotive tricks that are the series’ claim to fame.
The newest featurette highlights still more explosive new footage, but also reveals a bit more about the story and characters. Vin Diesel, Luke Evans, Michelle Rodriguez, and more discuss what’s driving the players, and how they bounce off of each other. Watch it after the jump.

The fairy tale trend that’s taken over Hollywood clearly isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Even as cameras roll on Disney’s Maleficent, which retells Sleeping Beauty from the perspective of its villain, there’s another reinterpretation of the story brewing, this time with the prince who breaks the spell at its center. Fast and the Furious producer Neal Moritz is behind the new version, a comedy which sees its male protagonist stalked by Sleeping Beauty after he awakens her. More details after the jump.

- Rodrigo Santoro talks 300 2, or whatever they end up calling it
- Joss Whedon continues to spill his thoughts on a potential Avengers 2
- In case you were still wondering, no, there are no plans for a Green Hornet 2
- Skyfall set pics reveal a familiar-looking car and a handsome-looking Bond

Comic book fans of the Nineties surely remember Valiant Comics. At the height of the comic book craze, titles such as Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Solar: Man of the Atom and others were huge sellers and highly collectible. Briefly, anyway. Today you can get those books for a song and a dance. Valiant’s popularity rose and fell before the movie industry was quite aware of what they had on those printed pages.
This May, Valiant is relaunching, and one of their most popular characters, Bloodshot, is getting his own movie. Producer Neal H. Moritz (Fast and the Furious, 21 Jump Street) has agreed with Sony to make a film based on a script by Jeff Wadlow (Cry_Wolf). Read more below. Read More »
