One Cut of the Dead remake

2011’s The Artist, the black-and-white paean to the silent film era, doesn’t hold much of a place in the film conversations of today. But the movie certainly struck a chord with Oscar voters the next year, winning Best Actor for Jean Dujardin, Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius, and ultimately winning Best Picture.

Now, the filmmaker behind that cinematic anomaly has set his sights on a remake of the low-budget Japanese horror comedy One Cut of the Dead, which is about a film crew that encounters real zombies while making a zombie movie – or at least that’s how it appears at first. You really, really should watch it. The new film, which is being shot in Hazanavicius’s native France, is called Final Cut, and it will star one of the leads of The Artist.

It’s the fate of nearly every successful foreign-language film — to be remade in English by Hollywood. But the turnaround came remarkably fast for Another Round, the stellar comedy-drama from director Thomas Vinterberg that walked away with the Best International Film Oscar on Sunday night.

Naturally, the internet didn’t respond well. But Vinterberg is holding out a little more hope for the Another Round remake than the rest of us.

The Wonder Years Reboot First Look

The Wonder Years is the latest series from the past to get a shiny new reboot. But rather than modernizing the drama about a suburban family living in the 1960s, The Wonder Years reboot is taking a different approach with the same formula.

Produced by Lee Daniels, The Wonder Years reboot will follow a Black family living in Montgomery, Alabama in the 1960s, providing a much different perspective than the original series that starred Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Jason Hervey, and Olivia d’Abo as The Arnold Family. The new series will focus on The Williams Family, and a first look photo has officially been revealed. Read More »
