Film: The Jungle Book Directed by: Jon Favreau Starring: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Idris Elba “Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you. I want to walk like you, talk like you, too.” It may be a bit hard to believe that an orangutan singing this line to a man-cub could speak lengths as to how director […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Cabin Fever’ is more of a Winter cold

Film: Cabin Fever Starring: Gage Golightly, Matthew Daddario, Nadine Crocker Directed by: Travis Z Remaking a horror film is probably one of the trickiest things someone can do today.

The Team Behind ‘You’re Next’ And ‘The Guest’ To Remake ‘I Saw The Devil’

We know that no movie – especially no horror movie – is safe from the remake bug. If we didn’t know that, we certainly learned it with the Audition news. It’s no surprise, then, to hear that a remake of Kim Jee-Woon’s 2010 revenge thriller I Saw The Devil has been commissioned. There’s good news, though. It looks […]

So Now There’s This English-Language ‘Audition’ Remake

Because the English-language J-horror remakes won’t end until we run out of J-horror hits to remake – and likely not even then – we can now look forward to an Audition starring white people. As reported by Deadline, Mario Kassar is putting together an adaptation of the notorious 1997 novel (and not an adaptation of the unduplicable Takashi Miike adaptation). […]

Maniac Cop

The Upcoming ‘Maniac Cop’ Remake Has Script Writer
