This is the one about a janitor who gets mutated by toxic waste and becomes a super-muscly, super-lumpy hero who fights evil with a mop.
Including, for comparison, some video of the new Robocop undergoing reshoots this last weekend.
It’s been 30 years since Stephen King’s killer dog novel Cujo was adapted into a slightly batty picture. To mark the anniversary, the first film’s producers are now backing a do-over.
Like the Robocop remake and The Amazing Spider-Man, just to pull a couple of recent examples, the cast for Godzilla is shaping up to be very impressive, and loaded with actors of the highest calibre.
Spaiht’s working to a new take on the film, replacing the one developed by Pacific Rim’s Travis Beacham. The new premise is apparently “a big idea – philosophical and somewhat dark in tone.”
Details had been pretty scarce, besides whatever you would assume on the basis of the original film – ie. Moby Dick in space, with memorable robots.
The whole trailer will be online tomorrow, but here’s a little bit of Carrie magic in the meantime.
Joe Carnahan left the remake of Death Wish after failing to agree with MGM on who should lead the picture. Word at the time was that the studio wanted Bruce Willis but Carnahan didn’t. They also spoke with Brad Pitt and Will Smith, apparently.
The remake of The Evil Dead premiered last night at the SXSW festival, and judging from social media accounts, the crowd were most pleased. And shocked. And disgusted. In a good way.
This new film is being produced by Sam Raimi and written by David Lindsay-Abaire, the director and co-writer of this weekend’s Oz the Great and Powerful – and as you may have noticed, two of my favourites.
Another project has fallen foul of those infamous ‘creative differences.’ Happens all the time – and so often with this particular flavour too, a dispute over the lead actor.
If they’re keeping the voice, I hope they’re also keeping the eyebrows.
The MPAA and US cinema chains have got adult moviegoers in a headlock.
I think the new Evil Dead is going to be really rather exciting.
The monster stands for something, he always has. But what?
A lot less gore but the intensity levels stay high.
Warner Bros. want to get their dormant monster movie series real wet.
