As the cohosts took to the stage for their opener, the model gave her best Melania Trump impersonation, and she kind of nailed it. Not only did she get the voice down, but she also perfected Melania's facial expressions. Here's hoping the rest of the night will be filled with even more moments like this.

Tony Scott In Talks To Remake The Wild Bunch

It would seem that Tony Scott is a bit jealous of his brother getting so many headlines. Earlier today, of course, it was announced that Ridley Scott will be helming a reboot of Blade Runner, one of films that launched the filmmakers career, and a few minutes ago producer Andrew Kosove spilled a few details about the project's background and schedule. Not to be outdone, the younger brother has now attached himself to a new project and it's a pretty big one. Deadline reports that Tony Scott is now in talks with Warner Bros. to helm the remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1969 western classic The Wild Bunch. Discussions about a remake first came up in January following the departure of executive Jessica Goodman. After Goodman left, all of her in-development projects, including The Wild Bunch, were distributed to other executives. While it could end up being Scott's next film, he

WB: Remaking The Wild Bunch and Westworld

I know, I know. “How can they remake The Wild Bunch?” I don’t know, because it’s old and the younger kids won’t see “old” movies. But the Sam Peckinpah classic is one of many films Warner Bros. is touting into remake land, which also include Lethal Weapon (here) and Westworld, the campy 1973 sci-fi film.

THR broke this. “Those are some of the few high-profile titles now getting a new lease on life at Warner Bros. due to the year-end departure of longtime studio executive Jessica Goodman. During her 13-year tenure, the executive vp oversaw such projects as Watchmen, Training Day and the upcoming Green Lantern. Since her departure, the studio’s top brass has reassigned her portfolio among several other execs.

The properties will now get fresh and hungry eyes — and talent agents are already chatting up the potential projects and listing clients they can pitch for directing or writing gigs.

Get Ready For a Bevy of Remakes from Warner!

It appears that the departure of long-time Warner Bros. exec Jessica Goodman — after a 13-year tenure — has prompted her portfolio to be distributed to fellow bigwigs. This work file included a whole pile of reboots — many long-rumored and long-forgotten — “Lethal Weapon” (a reboot, not #5), “The Wild Bunch,” “The Dirty Dozen,” “Westworld” and “Oh God.” The idea is that fresh eyes will bring new ideas and new life to these projects that were once sitting in development hell, or development who-the-hell-remembers. Apparently, agents are already creating pre-emptive lists for each project, to figure out potential writers and directors for these fledgling films. Granted, this is nothing more than fresh eyes and eager wishes. These projects must now live on under new eyes and not fall to any number of potential pitfalls.

'Lethal Weapon,' 'The Dirty Dozen' And 'The Wild Bunch' Reboots Could Soon Be Coming Our Way

'Lethal Weapon,' 'The Dirty Dozen' And 'The Wild Bunch' Reboots Could Soon Be Coming Our Way
Are any films safe from Hollywood's reboot hysteria? It doesn't seem like it. I've been pretty vocal in my dislike for the past few years' obsession with rebooting, remaking or creating sequels for every quasi-successful film made over the past half a century, but recently studio executives have reached new lows.

Somehow the Weinstein Company and Miramax thought it was a good idea to create sequels to films like "Shakespeare in Love," "Clerks" and "Rounders" (still scratching our heads over those), and now Warner Bros. is focusing its attention on rebooting some of its more successful films from the 1960s, '70s and '80s. If only they could reboot Mel Gibson's career as easily as they're planning to reboot "Lethal Weapon."

Yep, that's right, a "Lethal Weapon" reboot could soon be in the works. This news comes at us after WB executive Jessica Goodman departed the studio after 13 years.

Warner Brothers Lines Up A Bunch of Remakes! Lethal Weapon Is One of Them?

Warner Bros. is ramping up development on its remake slate with such titles as Lethal Weapon, The Wild Bunch, Westworld, The Dirty Dozen, Tarzan and Oh, God!.

According to the trades, the studio’s new priority on remakes comes after the departure of Warner executive Jessica Goodman at the end of 2010. Warner Bros. is now reorganizing her portfolio of projects, which will be getting new leases on life.

The Lethal Weapon remake, which I am torn, is the first project to move forward, with the studio hiring Will Beall to write the remake script. Beall is a former Lapd detective who got a lot of attention for his writing of the script Tales from the Gangster Squad, a movie that Zombieland director, Ruben Fleischer will helm. Beall’s pitch maintained the buddy-cop theme with a hard-r edge that the studio was looking for. Hard-r edge? The first movie with Gibson

Warner Brothers Planning Lethal Weapon Reboot

Update: Producer Joel Silver has hired former L.A. cop Will Beall to write a script [1] for the new Lethal Weapon movie. Get out your torches and pitchforks, folks... it looks like Warner Brothers is the early stages of rebooting the beloved Lethal Weapon series. After years of rumours about a possible fifth installment (with Mel Gibson himself apparently being the main holdout), it seems that they have finally decided to move on without Gibson and Glover and start over again from scratch. Heat Vision [2] reports that the departure of studio exec Jessica Goodman has led to a number of stalled WB projects being re-assigned to new producers with the hopes of getting them off the ground again. Some of the other projects being considered include remakes of The Dirty Dozen, Westworld, and The Wild Bunch. Oh yes, I can already sense the outrage brewing. While Westworld is a more

Warner Bros. Have Agenda To Remake Classic Titles

Some of us film buffs that love original films but hate remakes or reboots must sometimes feel like they’re getting too old for this shit. Things aren’t gonna be any better after a portfolio from recently departed Warner Bros executive Jessica Goodman revealed the prospect that Lethal Weapon is set to earn a reboot along with a possible remake of western classic The Wild Bunch.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros has gained the file of projects to be reassigned to other executives who will then try to develop the ideas from the original films and have them redone for the modern generation. Other films that were mentioned in the portfolio included a remake of war flick The Dirty Dozen, Westworld and a new live-action Tarzan film.

At this stage the idea is to come up with the people who will be involved in the potential projects whether it is directing,

WB is Remaking 'Lethal Weapon', 'Westworld' & 'The Wild Bunch'?

"I'm getting too old for this shit." A whole bunch of remakes, yes more of them, in development at Warner Bros just made themselves known thanks to an exec leaving the company. THR reports that an executive VP at the studio named Jessica Goodman left and her projects that she was working will move to other execs. So what did she have? In addition to remakes of The Dirty Dozen, Oh God and Tarzan (some of which we have heard about before), other remakes she was working on were Lethal Weapon, Westworld and The Wild Bunch. Too many remakes, give it a rest! But that's not it, as some of them are in active development. First up, if you remember, there was a Lethal Weapon 5 in development for a while, but with all the recent Mel Gibson madness, that fell apart before it could get too far. Deadline reports that

'Lethal Weapon,' 'Dirty Dozen,' 'Wild Bunch' ... It's Remake Mania at WB!

  • Moviefone
Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

At this point in the remake process, when we've got everything from 'Footloose' to 'An American Werewolf in London' and 'The Wizard of Oz' slapped on the to-do list, new remake/reboot/sequel announcements aren't all that surprising. Especially in a world where Miramax's notable library is getting thrust into the action.

It seems rather silly to gripe and groan, so let's get down to it: The Hollywood Reporter posts that the departure of long-time Warner Bros. exec Jessica Goodman -- after a 13-year tenure -- has prompted her portfolio to be distributed to fellow bigwigs.
