Remakes, remakes...everywhere

Cool site. Learned even more stuff from there...

Remakes:

Apparently Rob Zombie is the guy remaking "the Blob" so you could already assume it's going to be crap. but then I read he wants to make the movie without a "red, blobby thing". So what the heck is The Blob supposed to be then? :mad:

Rose McGowan is apparently not only Barbarella, but also Red Sonja.

"Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" will be directed by Guillermo Del Toro and star Katie Holmes.

"The Wizard of Oz" is being remade again, this time with Todd McFarlane's vision (this has the potential to be even worse than the Sci-Fi Channel's "Tin Man")

There's a "Bad Lieutenant" remake with Nicholas Cage in the Harvey Keitel role.

Also a remake of "True Grit" with the John Wayne part played by Jeff Bridges :sosp:

Darren Arnovsky is behind the Suspiria remake, possibly with Natalie Portman starring.

Look for a new version of "Masters of the Universe" somewhere down the road (no Dolph Lungren this time). Someone apparently also thought the world was hungry for a remake of "Judge Dredd".

And how about this: David Cronenberg's remake of the fly is being remade, by David Cronenberg :confused:

Sequels:

They're doing a sequel to "The Descent". It's a movie I liked, but the plot apparently is that the girl from the first one actually does finally escape the cavern, but then for some reason has to go back in (huh?) :confused:

Apparently someone thought it was time for "Bad Boys 3". Also for "Silent Hill 2". There will be a sequel to J J Abrams reimagined "Star Trek" and another "Spy Kids" sequel (are they even kids anymore?).

There's also going to be a fourth Pirates of the Carribean, a fifth Indiana Jones movie (oh, great) as well as a fifth "Rambo" movie, but apparently in this one John Rambo's in the jungle hunting...genetically engineered super soldiers (What the?!) :confused:

There's talk of "rebooting" the Fantastic Four movies.

"Wall Street 2" starring Shia LeBouff (yes, I'm serious)

Coming soon: Saw VI (the original was great, but come on)

And do we really need another Beavis and Butt Head movie? :nonod:

Adaptations:

A Green Hornet movie starring Seth Rogen? Come on :mad:

Jessic Biel is joining the A-Team movie, and it looks like Rampage Jackson will indeed be playing B A Baracus. Liam Neeson will be Hannibal (an Irish Hannibal?)

Although Zac Efron turned down the chance to star in the "Footloose" remake, he reportedly is joining a live action version of Johnny Quest, alongside Dwayne"The Rock" Johnson (Race Bannon?)

There's a movie called "The Fourth Kind" about alien abductions (no relation to the Spielberg classic).

Aaaand the character of Venom will apparently be resurrected and spun off from Spider man (regardless of how lame the movie version actually was).

Dune needs to be remade. The original was a convoluted mess.

10 won't be the same today. They should reverse the roles....cougars are all the rage now.

As long as they let someone normal produce and direct. No David Lynch. Peter Jackson might be a good candidate.

The scifi channel Dune miniseries was pretty good.

Trailer for the new "Nightmare on Elm Street" can be seen here: (link)

Comes from "Transformers" chief Michael Bay, who seems to really like remaking old horror movies.

He's produced the new versions of:

- Friday the 13th

- The Hitcher

- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

- Parts: The Clonus Horror (The Island)

- The Amityville Horror

- the Birds (upcoming)

Definitely a different overall look from the original. Opinions?

On the comic book movie front, a Ghost Rider sequel (hopefully darker than the first, "Ghost Rider" shouldn't be funny) and a "reboot" of Daredevil (minus Ben Affleck, I'm guessing).

The appeal of Sin City to guys is fairly easy to figure guys (sex, violence, the basics) :lol:

Some cool trailers here by the way:

- The Book of Eli (link)

Looks pretty cool

- Soloman Kane (link)

From the old comic book

- Antichrist (link)

Weeeeird, creepy looking stuff

- Black Dynamite (link)

Harkens back to the old blaxploitation movies

- Transylmania (link)

Could be pretty funny, or might be stupid.

- Trick 'r Treat (link)

On DVD; looks like a cool horror anthology; haven't seen one of those for a while

Zombie is good,

House of 1000 corpses was interesting until the end

Devils Rejects was solid

I thought the Halloween remake was good, I like some of his directing and filming style its reminiscent of old style horror movies, IMO if anyone else remade Halloween it would have came off truly hacky
