    ‘Red Dawn’ Remake Finds A New Home At FilmDistrict, Poised For 2012 Release > The Playlist

    Anyway, if there is one benefit to the film’s delay, it’s that the profile of its star Chris Hemsworth has been raised considerably thanks to “Thor” and it’s likely to be a bigger hit now than it would have been a year ago. Also helping things out? Josh Hutcherson will also see his popularity boost thanks to “The Hunger Games” next spring, so suddenly, this ‘80s remake with some unknown leads is now a movie led by two franchise stars. Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki and Jeffrey Dean Morgan round out the cast but the deciding factor in whether or not the film will be passable popcorn entertainment or something a bit less savory lies in the hands of stunt coordinator Dan Bradley who is making his feature debut. But Vinson’s comments don’t give us much hope for anything approaching nuance.

    No word on an exact release date yet, so you’ll just have to keep your eyes out for this one.

    Holy ****. I just read that Jose Padilha is directing this remake!?!?

    Exclusive: Josť Padilha Downplays Michael Fassbender Talk, Explains How He’ll Rebuild ‘RoboCop’ > The Playlist

    That's even more exciting than the Fassbender talk. Though if they could talk Fassbender into it...

    Padilha was mum on specifics, but he said that those ideas formed the foundation of a story the film’s producers found exciting. “I had a take on it, which I can’t tell you what it is because it would ruin the surprise of the film, but I presented this take to MGM and to Roger [Birnbaum] and John and Adam, and they’re great guys,” he explained. “And they loved it, so they said, ‘let’s make a film about it,’ so I’m like recreating the story based on that concept, that brilliant concept of changing a man with technology, automated systems, which is sort of a metaphor for what’s going on in society anyways.”
    Meanwhile, online reports have repeated news that Padilha reportedly wants actor Michael Fassbender as his star. But Padilha insists that talk is very premature, no one has even been approached for the title role, and that Fassbender’s name only came up as one in a larger discussion of actors he liked—and pushed for that answer to boot. “I did this interview for the Dutch media, because Verhoeven is Dutch, and I was doing them for ‘Elite Squad’ which is opening there,” he revealed. “And I’m being interviewed by these guys and they said, ‘so who is going to be RoboCop?’ “

    “I said I don’t know, and after the guy asked the same question like ten times, I said, ‘there’s so many great new actors in American films, like Michael Fassbender, Chris Pine [who was once rumored to be on the top of the ‘RoboCop’ wishlist], and so on.’ And all of a sudden I’ve called Fassbender out, but we haven’t even discussed this film. But it’s true – he’s a great actor. But they’re all great actors. So it’s from one sentence in one interview with a Dutch guy,” he said with a shrug.

    Padilha's Elite Squad 2 is coming out in theaters here in November. It's another flick that's near the top of my list of favorites this year. Really ****ing awesome.

    Rumor: Rooney Mara Wanted For ‘Oldboy’ Female Lead? | /Film

    Spike Lee is set to direct an American version of the South Korean favorite Oldboy, with Josh Brolin looking like the guy to play the lead role. Brolin would be a man who is kidnapped one night and imprisoned for fifteen years for reasons unknown to him. Released back into society just as abruptly as he was snatched, he begins to look for the person or persons responsible for his incarceration. Along the way he meets a young chef who becomes his partner in the search. And now there’s a report that Rooney Mara, of The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is the choice to play that role.
    Twitch has also been one of the sites reporting the word that Christian Bale is a possible choice for the villain of the film, but as of yet we have no reliable word that such a thing is true.

    Padilha's Robocop Will Be "Totally Different" from Aronofsky's - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    He did clarify that the Michael Fassbender casting talk was rubbish (a quote that was taken out of context). Also, in comparison with previous attached director Darren Aronofsky's vision, Padilha had this to say: "I haven't read Aronofsky's script. Aronofsky is a great director. I love his films. I am very proud because I saw Pi in the opening Sundance screening and I loved it. So Aronofsky's great. I have my own take on Robocop. I know what his take was and it's totally different. It's a different thing, different kind of film, even different period in time so I haven't read his previous work."

    And, once again touching on themes: "Some things change and some things never change. Corporations controlling people are a constant. It's the banks now, it's going to be something else 30 years from now. It was something else before... That's the greatness of the concept. That's the concept of Robocop in a nutshell. That's the heart and soul of the film. It's that conflict between stuff trying to own you and you trying to persevere. That's the heart of the story and it has to be. Any Robocop that's worth that name has to talk about that."

    Thing, The (2011) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    For a movie that excelled at being average, the production design on The Thing is also rather incredible (the spaceship being the true money shot for you Carpenter geeks out there), and if there are any reasons to pay money to see this movie on the big screen, it would have to be for the creature effects and the production design. Both definitely elevated the experience and, along with the work turned in by cinematographer Michel Abramowicz, are strong enough reasons to head to the theatre if for nothing else than to witness the pure spectacle of it all with your very own eyes.

    At the end of the day, The Thing is a rather average movie that does enjoy a few moments of greatness but ultimately leaves no lasting impression on you by the time the credits start rolling. From a nostalgic POV, it's definitely enjoyable to go back and revisit Carpenter's world within this separate storyline. But nostalgia can only get you so far so what this prequel ultimately ends up succeeding at is making you want to rush home to watch the '82 version just as soon as you can.

    The Thing is not a terrible movie, but it's not a remarkable movie either, making it a somewhat underwhelming experience for longtime fans overall.
    So, better than expected, but only because nobody expected anything. 3 'meh's out of 5?

    Scott Derrickson To Direct Charlize Theron In Remake Of Dutch Horror Film ‘Zwart Water’ > The Playlist

    Last summer, Theron’s production company Denver & Delilah snatched up the rights to the Dutch horror flick “Zwart Water” (known internationally under the much less zingy title “Two Eyes Staring”) for the remake treatment. And now it has a director. THR reports that the thoroughly underwhelming “Exorcism of Emily Rose” helmer Scott Derrickson will tackle the film that tells the story of a nine-year-old girl who discovers her sinister new friend is the ghost of the dead twin of her mother (got that?). Her father also begins to suspect his wife of hiding a terrible secret, resulting in deadly consequences. Theron will play the creepy Mom.
    The name of the original sounds familiar, but I don't recall if I heard anything about it being any good. JD, you know much about it?

    Other than it has a horrible title, I got nothing.
