Some casting changes are happening on the RoboCop remake as Hugh Laurie, who was scheduled to play the film’s villain, has left the production. MGM is now eyeballing Clive Owen and a few others to take his place. Stay tuned.

Jose Padilha’s film is gearing up for a September start in Toronto and thus far stars Joel Kinnaman as the title hero plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Currently RoboCop has a tentative release date of August 9th, 2013.

Jigsaw Plays Games in January

Published

on

If it’s Halloween, it’s got to be Saw. Remember that tagline? There was a time, way back when, when Saw films ruled the October roost in terms of theatrical horror entertainment. Then along came Paranormal Activity, and the king was dethroned. But then the supernatural franchise more than ran its course, leaving the door open for another icon to claim the yearly festival of fall frights. Will Jigsaw be able to game his way back into your hearts?

If you missed it in theaters, you’ll be able to make up for that soon as Lionsgate has just announced that the latest film in the Saw franchise, Jigsaw, returns on Digital January 9 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on January 23rd.

From directors Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers, Undead) and writers Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger, Jigsaw stars Tobin Bell (Manson Family Vacation, The Firm, the Saw franchise), Laura Vandervoot (TV’s “Smallville” and “V”), Callum Keith Rennie (TV’s “The Man in the High Castle,” “Californication,” Memento), Brittany Allen (It Stains the Sands Red), Matt Passmore (TV’s “The Glades”), and Hannah Emily Anderson (TV’s “Lizzy Borden Took an Ax”).

In the latest terrifying installment of the legendary Saw series, law enforcement find itself chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade, embroiled in a diabolical new game that’s only just begun. Has John Kramer, the infamous Jigsaw Killer, returned from the dead to commit a series of murders and remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a different killer with designs of his own?
