'Jacob's Ladder,' the 1990 film by Adrian Lyne that starred Tim Robbins and Elizabeth Pena, is the latest film to get dusted off and prepped for a new version. The remake is being financed by LD Entertainment ('The Grey'), and they've already got a writer attached.
'Captain Planet and the Planeteers' was a mildly popular, environmentally-friendly cartoon that ran from 1990 through 1996. And like so many childhood favorites it is being shopped around as a possible new movie franchise. Sony has taken the bait, and are working on turning the cartoon into a feature length film.
With the success of the last three 'Fast and Furious' films, Vin Diesel went from nearly being a has-been to an A-lister who got to resurrect his dead franchise 'Riddick.' Want more proof he's back on top? He's meeting with Marvel about an upcoming project.
'Knight Rider' was a popular TV show (albeit briefly) that ran from 1982 through 1986. In it, David Hasselhoff's crime-fighting Michael Knight was partnered with a talking car named KITT. And now it's ready to become a movie.
When 'Taken 2' was released, Liam Neeson spent a lot of time saying that he wasn't up for a third film as he felt another kidnapping incident that could lead to a sequel would be too ridiculous. But money changes everything -- Neeson was just offered a ridiculous sum to return and now 'Taken 3' is a go.
We recently reported the announcement that Shailene Woodley was cut out of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' because the movie was streamlined, but that may have been cover. Canadian actress Sarah Gadon confirmed she's joining the franchise, and it's hard not to wonder if the two are connected.
Fox has begun slot-calling their summer schedule for the next two years, which makes them conservative compared to Marvel and Sony. 'Independence Day 2' has officially been dated for July 3, 2015, among other changes and updates to their schedule.
The best thing and the worst about making 'The Lego Movie' is that there's never really been much of a narrative to Lego toys. You put them together, that's it. So the film could be about anything. And from the trailer, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('21 Jump Street') have fun with that freedom as we see the crossover of Lego toys from all different franchises assembled... for something.
