Every now and then it seems like the world is going to end or the film industry is going to hell, according to many film fans on the internet that pick up word about remakes/reboots of some of their favorite films.
I am here to let you guys know that I feel your pain and understand your concern, but sometimes I think we all just may be overdoing it a little. This now applies to the recent news that Universal has hired NWA biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' screenwriter Jonathan Herman to rewrite a script for the remake of the iconic classic 'Scarface' that they have been wanting to do for a while. The setting of the film will be in Los Angeles this time around and the plan is to still use the “immigrant that rises to power via crime” conceit.
Like I mentioned before, Scarface is a classic ...read more
Capcom's Resident Evil has been a household name for years in the world of gaming and since 2001, the name has become a household name in film also, but not for the better recently. Fans have been very weary with the recent movies and games in the franchise and I have a solution for both.
However, I think the movie has far more problems than the game. In my opinion the game just needs to rekindle its original zombie feeling and it will be back in the ball park, not saying that their last outing titled "Resident Evil 6" was a huge success. The games may still be successful, but many fans have decided to call it quits on the series that is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and stars his wife, Mila Jovovich.
Paul W.S. Anderson has recently announced that he would be directing a Resident ...read more
It seems like no one wants to just keep the original film series but everyone is going for the big reboots.
The same will be said for one of the coolest action series of the 80s and 90s, which is John Carpenter's 'Escape' series.
Snake Plissken will be heading back to the big screen! Deadline reports today that 20th Century Fox has won the remake rights to John Carpenter’s enduring action thriller, Escape From New York. What’s more, Carpenter himself is set to serve as executive producer!
Set in a dystopic future, the 1981 original original stars Kurt Russell as Plissken, an eyed-patched convict sent into a maximum security prison (formerly the island of Manhattan) to rescue the President.
Carpenter directed his own sequel to the original, Escape From L.A., in 1996, although that film is decidedly less-beloved by fans of the original.
It’s been ...read more
Scene-stealer and actor Jack Huston is now accepting new titled roles. The London-born actor has been cast as Ben-Hur in the upcoming remake of the 1959 epic Charlton Heston starring film titled 'Ben-Hur.'
The actor, who is best known for playing in HB's original series 'Boardwalk Empire', appeared in other cinema like 'Kill Your Darlings' and 'American Hustle,' but 'Ben-Hur' marks his first ever starring role in a major studio film. In fact, this may be the film that cements the actor's place in his family's Hollywood pantheon: He's the nephew of actors Danny and Anjeclica Huston, the godson of the legendary director John Huston, and the great-grandson of Oscar Winning actor Walter Huston.
Ben-Hur, which originated as a 1925 silent film, tells the story of two friends, the Jewish prince Judah Ben-Hur and the Roman citizen Messala, living in Jerusalem during the time of Jesus ...read more
