In “hey, I’ll give these guys a shot at this” news, Deadline reports that 28 Weeks Later and Intruders director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, newbie screenwriter Joshua Zetumer (he just penned the new Robocop remake), and Even Stevens and Holes star Shia Labeouf are set to team up on Zetumer’s Villain. Fresnadillo will direct (uh, of course) the psychological thriller that “follows two brothers who mysteriously re-connect in an unforgiving wilderness.” Labeouf will play one of the brothers (the villain?), with the other brother role reportedly set to be cast soon. For now, that’s all we know about the project, but that tantalizing bit of plot information is certainly rich with possibility. Obviously, there’s still a lot that could go wrong with this one, and much of the film’s success will depend on who they get to star opposite Labeouf (perhaps his Orphans replacement Ben Foster?), an actor who seems to be screaming out »

There are likely still many who have doubts about the upcoming RoboCop remake, starring Joel Kinnaman as Detroit cop Alex Murphy. Actress Abbie Cornish, who plays Alex's wife Ellen, recently praised director José Padilha's work, and believes the movie will become a "classic."
"It's gonna be a massively kick-ass film. I actually have a voicemail message from José Padilha, the director. He says in the message, 'I don't think we've got a great movie. I think we've got a classic.' It's pretty amazing. I was five when the movie came out, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I grew up with brothers, so we would replay that VHS over and over again. I think people are going to get a lot more than what they think they're going to the cinema for. It's not only entertaining, but it's got heart, and it's going to be a classic. »
