Working with a script by the Coen Brothers, the Call Me By Your Name filmmaker is tackling the remake of the 1983 Brian De Palma movie starring Al Pacino, itself a remake of a film from 1932. While the ’32 Scarface was set in the 1920s, and the ’83 Scarface took place in 1980, Guadagnino says his Scarface is going to be “very timely.”

f9 in space

We’ve joked about it time and time again: what if Fast and Furious went to space? After all, the action franchise has escalated so far beyond the bounds of its gritty street racing beginnings — the latest films have basically turned them into world class superspies — so why not?

wolfman reboot director

Having already proven he has the goods to bring a new twist to classic Universal Monsters with The Invisible Man, Leigh Whannell is now in negotiations to helm The Wolfman. Ryan Gosling is set to star in the horror pic, which was previously reported as being partially inspired by Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler.

jurassic park cast

If you needed further proof that the original Jurassic Park cast has more to do in Jurassic World: Dominion than just pop-up in cameos, Sam Neill is here to help. Neill, who played Dr. Alan Grant in Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3, has gone on record saying he and his Park co-stars Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will be popping-up “all the way through the film” rather than just showing up for blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameos.
