Licence To Drive is set for a remake

16 hours ago

Simon Brew Aug 16, 2017

1988's License To Drive, starring Heather Graham and the two Coreys, is getting a Hollywood remake...

We’ve been strangely bereft of movie remake stories for a little while, but rest assured there are plenty still chugging their way through the Hollywood system. Another one is coming too, with the news that 1988 comedy License To Drive is next for a do-over.

The original film starred Corey Haim, Corey Feldman and Heather Graham, and followed a teen who failed his driving test. He celebrates in the time honoured fashion by, er, taking his grandfather’s prized car for a night on the town.

This time around, the two leads in the movie will be female, and the new script is being written by Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles. John Davis is producing the film, and no director has thus far been appointed.

James Bond 25 is set for November 2019 - and Daniel Craig has finally confirmed he's in...

Barely an hour after we posted our original story (see below), Daniel Craig has now confirmed on Stephen Colbert's TV show in the Us that he will indeed be back to play James Bond 007 one more time. And this time, it does look as if it's his final 007 outing. "“I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait", he said.

Here's the announcement clip...

Gremlins 3 still alive, Chris Columbus gives update on script

16 hours ago

Simon Brew Aug 16, 2017

Chris Columbus reveals he's finished the script for Gremlins 3, and that it's "twisted and dark".

Amongst the list of projects missing presumed dead was a revival of the Gremlins film series. Chris Columbus, who penned the original film, had been working on a screenplay for a new movie, but nothing had been heard of it for some time. It had been assumed that its moment had passed.

An incorrect assumption that, though. Columbus, in a new interview with Slashfilm, has confirmed that he’s now actually completed a screenplay for Gremlins 3, and that it’s now over to Warner Bros.

“I’m really proud of the script”, Columbus said. “It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see”.

“It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. »

James Cameron pays tribute to the late Bill Paxton

Simon Brew Aug 16, 2017

James Cameron on his "dear, dear friend", the late, great Bill Paxton.

The tragic loss of Bill Paxton back in February, at the age of just 61 still feels wrong and unfair. He died following complications from surgery, and left us with a terrific body of work. Four of the films he made were with James Cameron, and in a new interview, the filmmaker has been paying tribute to his lost friend.

“We became fast friends in 1981, I think, when we were both working for Roger Corman”, Cameron recalled. “And we were friends until - I don’t want to say the day he died - but the night before he went in for the surgery that went wrong, I talked to him that night. So, yeah, he’s just a dear, dear friend, and a great artist”.

“He was unique, you know, certainly broke the mold”, Cameron added. »

The Simpsons: William Friedkin announced for Treehouse Of Horror

Kirsten Howard Tony Sokol Aug 16, 2017

The power of Millhouse has compelled Exorcist director William Friedkin to possess The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror Xxviii...

In devil of a deal, William Friedkin, the director of The Exorcist, will disembody his voice for a part on The Simpsons’ Halloween chestnut roast 'Treehouse of Horror Xxviii'. 

See related  Remembering 90s Thunderbirds & Captain Scarlet toys

Friedkin, who also directed Sorcerer, Cruising, To Live And Die In L.A., and Killer Joe, will play Dr. Kenneth Humphries in a segment entitled 'Mmm…Homer'.

It appears Homer hasn’t learned a thing since he was transformed into a giant donut and had to hide from coffee-wielding cops several Treehouses ago. This time, he runs out of food while Marge and the kids are away, and resorts to biting the four-fingered hands that feed him. According to TVline, he will be “cannibalising himself,” but they don’t say why or what Friedkin's Dr. »

Molly’s Game trailer, starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba

15 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT

David Crow Aug 16, 2017

Aaron Sorkin directs for the first time with Molly's Game, a true story of poker, celebrities, and scandal...

It’s easy to say life is little more than a high stakes game. Who wins, who loses, and who gets to take home that pot at the end of the rainbow. For many years, the real winner was Molly Bloom, the subject of Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut, Molly’s Game. For almost a decade she ran an exclusive poker escape for the rich and powerful. It all came crashing down in the end, but now that she is being played by Jessica Chastain in a Sorkin film, it appears Molly will be coming out on top again.

Sorkin, who won an Oscar for The Social Network’s screenplay and has also written the screenplays for Steve Jobs, A Few Good Men, and Moneyball, appears ready to craft »

The pressure grows on Cath as she's forced to tell more lies in Trust Me’s second episode...

This review contains spoilers.

I’m not one for irritable reaching after fact and reason when it comes to TV drama. How does so-and-so afford a flat like that on a part-time superhero salary? I don’t much care. How did thingamabob drive all the way up there to launch that nuke without once stopping for petrol? Couldn’t give a fig.

We just want to be told a good story. TV isn’t real life - pointing out its logistical inaccuracies is a fun pub game at best and pedantically humourless at worst. Few of us are truly bothered by how unlikely it is that a serial killer got 4G reception in his underground mountain lair. If we’re gripped »

Ozark has been renewed for season 2 on Netflix

Kirsten Howard Tony Sokol Aug 16, 2017

Netflix will continue to dredge the Ozark lake area for dark cash and further plots in season 2...

Netflix have confirmed that Ozark has been renewed for a further 10 episodes with season 2. Series star Jason Bateman is staying on as executive producer, and will also direct.

The show premiered on the streaming service last month to mixed reviews. Ozark is a low-key family drama that follows a financial planner who moves his family from the Chicago suburbs to the Missouri Ozarks, and it seeks to explore the dark side of capitalism beyond Wall Street.

Here's the official synopsis for the show, if you've not caught it yet and fancy a new thing to binge:

“This money-centric present day story revolves around financial planner Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) and their family's sudden relocation from the »

Gotham: Netflix UK announces season 3 release

Kirsten Howard Aug 15, 2017

As Channel 5 continue to drag their feet on airing the third season of Gotham, Netflix have stepped up to the plate for UK fans...

Season 4 of the popular Batman prequel show Gotham will begin airing next month in the Us, but most UK viewers still haven't seen the third season.

Channel 5, who had previously wanted to show new episodes of the series before Netflix got hold of them, seemingly had little interest in maintaining that system when it was time to broadcast season 3 of the show, and fans were left waiting to find out if they would ever bother.

Now, Netflix has decided to go ahead and stream the third season of Gotham from the 1st of September. The DVD and Blu-rays are due out on the 28th of August, so those in the UK will still be left »

The TV adaptation of Good Omens has found its Aziraphale and Crowley in Michael Sheen and David Tennant...

Good Omens, a collaborative novel written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is heading to the small screen. Six episodes of the adaptation are eyeing a 2018 premiere, first on Amazon and then later on the BBC.

Masters Of Sex star Michael Sheen and former Time Lord David Tenannt have landed the lead roles in the series, Variety now reports. Sheen will be playing Aziraphale, "a somewhat fussy angel" and Tennant will play demon Crowley. 

"I first read Good Omens as a teenager and it’s been one of my favourite stories ever since,” Sheen remarked in a statement. “To be part of the team entrusted with bringing it alive on screen is a bit of a dream come true to be honest. »

Preacher season 2 episode 9 review: Puzzle Piece

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 Puzzle Piece

There’s nothing quite so uncomfortable as tension within a group. When there are things unspoken between people, it’s unpleasant to be around. It’s like having a corrupted wound. Maybe if you leave it alone it will go away on its own, or maybe it’ll get infected and your nose will rot off your face. That’s always the risk when a foreign body gets under someone’s skin, and in the case of Preacher, everybody’s got their something.

Puzzle Piece is an episode with a central focus, but with multiple ways to approach said focus. For Starr, it’s a casual aside, while for Hoover and Featherstone, stopping »

Richard Stanley to get second go at directing Dr Moreau

14 August 2017 9:57 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Aug 15, 2017

Director Richard Stanley might just get to make his take on The Island Of Dr Moreau after all...

When director Richard Stanley stepped onto the set of The Island Of Dr Moreau just over 20 years ago, it followed the many years he’d spent trying to get the adaptation of H G Wells’ story to the big screen. A glittering cast had been assembled, led by Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. Everything was in place. And then Stanley was fired three days into filming. By fax.

The story was told in the excellent documentary Lost Soul. It recalled how replacement director John Frankenheimer was brought in, and how he, er, ‘failed to get on with the crew’. Then there were reports of Brando’s behaviour, of Kilmer’s behaviour as well, and general unrest on set. And that was before the terrible final cut of the movie was released. »

Director Robert Eggers and star Anya Taylor-Joy are set to reteam for a new take on Nosferatu...

Following their respective breakthroughs in 2015’s The Witch, director Robert Eggers and actor Anya Taylor-Joy are teaming up once more, this time for a classic horror. They’re set for the remake of the 1922 silent horror classic Nosferatu that’s in the works.

Variety reports that Taylor-Joy – currently filming X-Men: New Mutants – is in negotiations to join the new film, that Eggers is also penning the screenplay for.

There’s no word on timescales yet – Taylor-Joy also has M Night Shyamalan’s Glass to fit in as well beforehand – but as we hear more on the movie, we’ll let you know…

George Clooney cuts Josh Brolin from his next film

14 August 2017 9:45 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Aug 15, 2017

Josh Brolin's role in George Clooney's upcoming Suburbicon has been left on the cutting room floor...

For his next film as director, George Clooney has been working on a 1950s-set crime drama by the name of Suburbicon. It’s got a script that’s written by the Coen brothers, and a cast that includes Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac and, well, not Josh Brolin.

Brolin was part of the original ensemble for the movie, but Clooney has now revealed that he’s had to cut the actor’s scenes out of the film altogether.

Chatting to EW, Clooney explained that after an initial test screening, Brolin’s comedic scenes “let the air out of the balloon, in terms of the tension in the film".

“I had to write him this awful note where I just said ‘you’re not going to believe it. but »

Joseph Baxter Aug 15, 2017

Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage tackles a technological murder mystery in the Rememory trailer.

Peter Dinklage’s starring role in the thriller Rememory is now being showcased in a trailer for its upcoming wide release, after having debuted at the Sundance Film Festival back in January. 

Video of Rememory (2017 Movie) - Official Trailer - Peter Dinklage, Anton Yelchin

The Rememory trailer features Peter Dinklage as Sam Bloom, a man who comes into the investigative service of widow Carolyn, played by Julia Ormond (Mad Men, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) to look into the murder of her husband Gordon Dunn, played Martin Donovan (Legends Of Tomorrow, Ant-Man), who was the inventor of the plot-centric device that can extract, record and play memories.

Bloom’s investigation starts when he takes possession of the device in question, which, to use an appropriately Game of Thrones-themed metaphor, turns »

Game Of Thrones: who is The Night King?

14 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT

Marc Buxton Aug 15, 2017

Game of Thrones looks like it's heading into battle with the White Walkers and thus the Night King. Our Us chums explore his book origins...

So the ending of this week's Game Of Thrones episode was pretty badass, huh? The climactic image of the King in the North, the few remaining members of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Gendry, the Hound, and Tormund Giantsbane are going off to find themselves a Wight. This also means they'll soon be doing battle with the Night King (or for book purists, George R.R. Martin's much cooler name for him, "The Night's King"). You should remember this guy, the White Walker at Hardhome who raised his arms like the Undertaker after a particularly memorable Wrestlemania victory. It's probably one of the most chilling and impressive visuals that Game Of Thrones has ever featured. And it was one of those rare moments »

As it builds towards its endgame, Game Of Thrones is now mining almost seven seasons of eventful intrigue, conspiracy and action.

If your recall of what’s happened in seasons past isn’t as sharp as it could be, we’re here to help.

From Gendry, to Sansa’s season one letter to Robb, from Gilly’s unwitting discovery to the mystery reappearance of (hooray!) Kevin Eldon, here are a few questions you may need answering about this week’s Game Of Thrones episode…

Okami HD reportedly scheduled for release in 2017

Matthew Byrd Aug 15, 2017

One of Capcom's masterpieces may be getting an upgrade, as word surfaces of Okami HD...

Reports suggest that Capcom is developing an HD re-release of their 2006 action-adventure title, Okami. 

See related  Remembering 90s Thunderbirds & Captain Scarlet toys

This report comes to us from Kotaku UK who claim that two different sources have informed that an HD version of Okami will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in December. Kotaku UK claims to have seen images from the release calendars from two different European game retailers which list a December 12th release date for the reported HD re-release. 

If this information is accurate, that would mean that this re-release will be available in both physical and digital formats unlike the 2013 PS3 version of the game which could only be downloaded digitally. 

We have reached out to Capcom's representatives for comment but have not received a reply. »

3.14 We Are Like The Dreamer

This is easily the most surreal episode since Part 8: Gotta Light? Still, though there was lot of insane stuff I can hardly guess at the meaning of, there was also a lot of plot development and scenes of the police and the FBI finding things out and getting stuff done. It’s the sublime version of Twin Peaks I see in my mind’s eye where surrealism and police procedural coexist comfortably alongside one another. (Let’s not forget that even the original series often was not like this. The surreal moments were largely confined to specific episodes.)

Part 14 has two great sequences of spiritual policework. »
