NEWS ROUNDUP Ver. 12
The first promo photos of the remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role and Julianne Moore as Carrie's mother Margaret White have been released. Now I'm not sure how the remake will play out, but if they try to make it PG-13 it just won't work. The movie is currently filming.
It's official, the cable series on Showtime, Dexter, will end it's run in 2013.
The always in production hell remake/be-boot has found its Conner MacLeod and it appears to be, Ryan Reynolds? Hmm......not my first choice to play a Highland Scot. Yet supposedly Highlander has a new director attached to it as well now, and that being Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who directed 28 Weeks Later.
It looks like there is going to be a remake/re-boot of the Robert A. Heinlein's classic sci-fi novel as well. It is being produced by Tobe Jaffe, who is also producing the Total Recall remake. Jaffe in a recent interview has said that the movie will be more in line with the book than the ultra violent 90's version of the movie. So don't expect to see scenes like the above in the remake. The reason why the first one did so well was because of the over the top violence and the playful attitude the whole movie had.
And now second to last to finish off this week of news, here's a new picture of Vin Diesel from the now in post-production sequel that comes out next year. Can not wait for this one!
And for the finale this week, the new trailer for Total Recall came out, and this one caught my attention quickly. And no it's not because of the three breasted hooker, but due to the fact that it might actually have more going for it than action and might get to the true heart of the original story.
