    Scares the hell out of me, but how does the remake compare ?
    All you need to know is it has the amazingly hot jessica Biel in it...actually it is very watchable as is the sequel which is a prequel...keep up

    No no doubt you are all wildly excited by the Evil Dead remake coming out next year?

    Can't bčlieve they are thinking about doing a remake of The Mummy which was a remake itself. I enjoyed the first remake but not the sequels

    I'd quite like someone (other than George Lucas) to remake the Star Wars prequels...
    They should probably totally rewrite the story to them all too. In fact, forget they existed at all, other than as a point of reference as to what not to do.

    The Thing (2011) how does it compare to The Thing (1982) as the 1982 film is classic stuff.

    It doesn't compare. It's not a terrible film but basically it's a remake of the original sold as a prequel with none of the tension of the original and an uninteresting cast. Doesn't add anything and a pretty pointless prequel sadly.

    It's too good a universe not to let other directors have a crack. I'm sure it will happen sooner or later.

    Yes, just watched the Evil Dead trailer via Empire's site.

    Gulp. I'm getting too old (and squeamish) for this stuff. There was a time but now...... Not sure I'd make it out of the cinema at the end!

    Enjoyed 1/2 back in the day. But they had Bruce Campbell for fun.

    I'll stick with Bubba Ho-Tep and rest my weak heart.

    Arnie is back as Conan


    Deadline reports that Schwarzenegger is aboard to reprise his role as the Cimmerian warrior in a film to be produced by Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan (screenwriter of Fast and the Furious and Wanted). Malmberg runs Paradox Entertainment, which controls the rights to the Robert E. Howard character, and produced 2011's Conan the Barbarian


    "The caveat is that the studio wants The Legend of Conan for summer 2014, and Morgan might not be finished writing the seventh Fast and Furious installment by then," Deadline claims. "If that happens he will be a very active producer, because this is Morgan’s dream project."

    The Legend of Conan will only adhere to 1982's Conan the Barbarian and forgetting that Conan the Destroyer or the Momoa reboot ever happened. "The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make,” Malmberg informed Deadline. “It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.”


    Schwarzenegger added, “I always loved the Conan character and I’m honored to be asked to step into the role once again. I can’t wait to work with Universal and the great team of Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan to develop the next step of this truly epic story.”

    Yeah I know, just early morning and couldn't to be asked to start new thread :)

    So now it's original,sequel,remake,sequel to original

    Just a sequel that ignores its first sequel

    I thought Bubba Ho-Tep was dull as unpolished carbon.

    Best remakes
    Alien
    The Thing (no not the pre-make, the Carpenter ORIGINAL remake)

    Remakes are there because they cannot make anything original.

    However, what about remakes of classic games? I did once read about Chrono Trigger being remade (Chrono Ressurection) but got a Cease & Desist from Square-Enix. Surely if an unofficial remake got so much attention why didn't they take it off them and finish the game instead of what I can only assume is.....deleted it.

    What Remakes would you really want to see? Except Final Fantasy Series....FF7 will never be done.

    It's always surprised me there hasn't been a remake of Logan's Run. It could focus on the word Run and feature free-running or something. I don't know, I'm not a writer. There must be ways to have a different take on it. Could use the books ending and set it up for the sequel, I suppose.

    Not that I want one. I'm not fussy either way.

    I love Logan's Run. Until I saw it, I though In Time was a modern day remake of Logan's Run.

    Oh. Well then I shall cease being surprised at no remake then :) Not sure about Gosling, though that's a moot point now he's not going to be in it.

    Naked Gun reboot with Ed Helms

    Detective Frank Drebin is coming back with Ed Helms on board to portray Leslie Nielsen’s character in Paramount’s reboot of “The Naked Gun” comedy franchise.

    The studio has tapped the scripting team of Thomas Lennon and R. Ben Garant — best known for the “Night at the Museum” and “Reno 911″ franchises, to write the screenplay as a new spin on the Drebin character.

    maybe Disney might retcon it after the new sequels. But it will probably have Johnny Depp with a weird hat as Obiwan Kenobi.

    Not a remake, but Stalingrad has been given a Hollywood-esque treatment by the Russkies.

    Would rather see a remake of a film that wasn't all that good, where the remake makes it good. Otherwise don't really see the point of a remake.

    For what it's worth, the Evil Dead remake was really well done in my book.
