Starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jude Law, Willem Dafoe, Ian Holm Directed by David Cronenberg Distributed by Echo Bridge Entertainment
Looking back at the last time we did a story about the Videodrome remake Universal has on its plate, it's hard to believe it was over three years ago! Yes, things move slowly in Hollywood, but that's about to change because a director has been chosen.
While the film in question is not quite horror, we know David Cronenberg has a pretty big fan base around these parts so when Trembles sent over an MPP for Cosmopolis, we figured why not run it just in case there is interest in the flick. Check it out!
Back in March we first learned about "Knifeman", a new television adaptation heading our way from David Cronenberg, and today comes word as to who will be starring in it. Read on for the details.
David Cronenberg's latest, Cosmopolis, looks to be a return to his older, outre cinematic style. It stars Robert Pattinson, who is working hard at shedding Edward Cullen by undertaking a completely different vapid persona. Check out some nifty promotional pics that feature the actor riffing on a few of the director's past works.
No, we are not talking about the world's coolest informercial (though that would be hilarious). What we've got on tap for you here is a new television adaptation heading your way from two masters of their craft!
In a world where everything just short of the kitchen sink is being remade by Hollywood, you really have to wonder why a major studio would put the kibosh on another remake/sequel from one of the top directors working in the field who actually wants to work on the project. Sadly, that's exactly what has happened.
Two more films have been added to the 2011 Grimm Up North lineup - one old and one new - that really have us wishing we lived in the UK. Joining the previously announced Stalker are Lucky McKee's controversial The Woman and David Cronenberg's classic adaptation of Stephen King's The Dead Zone.
While it's hard to tell how much horror might be involved from the description, anytime David Cronenberg gets involved in a project, our ears perk up so we had to share the news that he's been tapped by Media Rights Capital to direct an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem's novel As She Climbed Across the Table. Read on for the details.
Now in its 36th year, the Toronto International Film Festival has unveiled a selection of films in its 2011 Galas and Special Presentations programmes. The Festival runs Sept. 8-18, and while we wait for the Midnight Madness schedule to be announced, we thought we'd share the handful of genre offerings to be found at TIFF 2011.
Quick! Of all the directors best equipped to take the reins on a remake of David Cronenberg’s The Brood, which one comes to your mind? If you said anyone other than the director of Sahara, you’re dead wrong.
The above headline kind of makes our heads hurt a little. Just a little. Two questions beckon ... Why remake a remake? and If you're going to remake a remake, who better than the director of the original remake to remake his own remake into a brand new remake? Okay. I'm gonna need some Advil, stat!
I did a Dread Central April Fool's Day story a few years back touting Paul W.S. Anderson as writing/directing a remake of Videodrome. Today I get to do essentially the same story, only this time the remake is for real, and if nothing else, at least we can take pause in knowing Paul W.S. Anderson will not be involved.
