A few more details came in today regarding Stephen Norrington's remake of The Crow, and honestly? It may not be as bad as we thought! A source close to the development of the redux (take that for what it's worth) caught up with Mania and dropped the following on them:
Alex Winter’s Freaked remains one of the most amazingly underrated films I’ve ever seen. In fact, I love it so much that it has bought the former Bill & Ted star eternal goodwill in my eyes. Normally I balk at the prospect of horror films of my youth being remade, but you can’t seem to escape that fate these days. And with Alex Winter at the helm, I’m actually looking forward to the updated version of the Tibor Takacs flick The Gate.
Yet another inmate has signed up for Paul Scheuring's remake of Oliver Hirschbiegel's based-on-a-true-story paranoia flick Das Experiment (review). Titled simply The Experiment, if the movie ends up being a tenth as good as its cast, we could be in for a real treat!
Summit Entertainment released a new one-sheet today for Stewart Hendler's remake of The House on Sorority Row, titled simply Sorority Row.
Well, now. Can't really call this one a shocker (no relation to the other Wes Craven film). Just a few days ago we told you that should the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot do well at the box office, the new Nancy, Rooney Mara, would be back for two more films. You'll never guess who'll be joining her!
Some movement on the Guillermo del Toro produced Don't Be Afraid of the Dark remake. Two actors are getting ready to star beside the already cast Katie Holmes. Who might they be?
It was only a matter of time. Here's the deal, and we're just going to have to accept it: If a movie is even slightly good or has even the tiniest of cult followings, Hollywood is going to remake it. There's just no doubt of this anymore.
It's been several months since any news has trickled out regarding the planned remake of Oldboy which is in the hands of director Steven Spielberg and actor Will Smith, and now we know why. It's the subject of a complex, behind-the-scenes rights wrangle involving the Japanese publishers of the original manga and the Korean producers of Park Chan-Wook's 2003 cult hit.
Given we live in an age where darn near every horror movie hitting theaters is either a remake or a sequel, it’s kind of surprising to hear that a remake is bypassing theaters and going straight to DVD. Such is the case of the remake of Larry Cohen’s killer baby opus It’s Alive.
Man, September is sure becoming crowded in terms of genre programming at theatres. Make sure you stockpile your popcorn money because moving up from its original October release is the Sorority Row remake.
That's right, kids! Before the original film makes its way Stateside, Paramount Vantage is already planning a remake of the Australian horror suspense film Lake Mungo.
A couple of updates came through via Twitter today from director Darren Bousman and mad creator Gris Grimly.
It appears that Warner Bros. is actively looking for a writer to tackle a new approach toward the much beloved classic Teen Wolf. No surprise, really, but it still hurts a little.
One of the best films of the past decade is Oliver Hirschbiegel's based-on-a-true-story Das Experiment (review). When the inevitable remake reared its head months ago, the name being floated to write and direct was "Prison Break"'s Paul Scheuring.
Jackie Earle Haley, the man who will be Krueger, has been busy lately. After his excellent turn as Rorschach in Watchmen, Platinum Dunes was pretty quick to snap him up for its A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, currently shooting in and around Chicago.
