Universal Pictures to remake 1996 thriller Fear with Straight Outta Compton scribe providing the script

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Universal Pictures have hired Straight Outta Compton co-writer Jonathan Herman to write the script for their planned re-imaging of the Mark Wahlberg-Reese Witherspoon led 1996 movie Fear.

The all new re-imaging of the psychological thriller is said to be from a female perspective this time after the original story revolves around an upper-middle-class family whose seemingly perfect existence is threatened when their teenage daughter begins dating an attractive and mysterious young man, much to her father’s chagrin.

Also in the news – Kristen Wiig top choice to star as Wonder Woman’s adversary in sequel

The original film was directed by James Foley from a screenplay by Christopher Crowe and also starred William Petersen, Alyssa Milano and Amy Brenneman. Original producer Brian Gazer will return to produce for Imagine Entertainment. Universal’s Evp Production Jon Mone and creative executive Christine Sun will oversee alongside Imagine’s Tyler Mitchell.

Fear Remake Is Happening at Universal

Fear Remake Is Happening at Universal
The 1996 thriller Fear is getting the reboot treatment from Universal Pictures with a script to be written by Straight Out of Compton scribe Jonathon Herman. The original 1996 movie starred Reese Witherspoon as the 16-year old good girl who gets involved with the wrong boy, Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg seems to be the perfect boyfriend at the beginning of the movie only to show off an incredibly dark and sinister side that ends with the beheading of dogs, the murdering of friends, and the attempted slaughter of an entire family.

Brian Grazer produced the original Fear in 1996 and he is back on board for the new reboot, which is rumored to be told through the eyes of the female perspective. When it came out in 1996, it was labeled as a Fatal Attraction for teenagers and was trashed by critics. However, it became a sleeper hit at the box office and has gained

Mental illness on screen: the good, the bad & the ugly

Lucy Nichol Feb 19, 2018

Lucy looks at a handful of the movies she's grown up with, and examines how they treat mental illness...

Associating mental illness with horror, violence and downright strange goings on was as rife as e-numbers and spiral perms back in the 80s. That's as far as my memory takes me anyway. But in fact, this unfair association goes back further still, many years before I was brought into this world via forceps in 1978 (I was always a stubborn child).

Going back even further, before we had the movies, Bethlem was, and still is, a hospital in London for people suffering from mental illness. Whilst it might be a respected hospital today, it has a chequered past...

It is reported that, in the 1590s, the governors allowed the general public to come and gawp at Bethlem's patients as a source of entertainment - paid for much like we

‘Something Wild’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

Stars: Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith, Ray Liotta, Dana Preu, Margaret Colin | Written by E. Max Frye | Directed by Jonathan Demme

Jonathan Demme was one of the great names of cinema lost in the terrible artistic purge of 2017. His last film of note might have been the forgettable Ricki and the Flash, but there was a period, between 1986’s Something Wild and Philadelphia in 1993 – via no less than Silence of the Lambs – when the director could do no wrong.

Something Wild begins with New York businessman Charlie Driggs (Jeff Daniels) making a mildly rebellious decision: he chooses to not pay for his restaurant meal. A beautiful stranger, Audrey (Melanie Griffith), calls him out. They argue. They connect. She invites (or possibly kidnaps) him to join her on a crazy road trip, heading south with no destination but the next motel, causing moderate chaos along the way. They’re not quite Bonnie and Clyde,

Meryl Streep in ‘Ironweed’: A look back at her seventh Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘Ironweed’: A look back at her seventh Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 7 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

On paper, “Heartburn” (1986) had the sound of a surefire smash. The picture reunited the talented trio from “Silkwood” (1983) – leading lady Meryl Streep, director Mike Nichols and screenwriter Nora Ephron. Production on the film hit a snag early on, as Nichols, seeing no magic between he and Streep, fired leading man Mandy Patinkin after mere days of shooting. Things would presumably still be A-ok, however, if not better, considering Patinkin’s replacement was none other than Jack Nicholson, hot as ever with his Academy Awards victory for “Terms of Endearment” (1983) and success the year prior with “Prizzi’s Honor” (1985).

That summer, “Heartburn” hit theaters to reviews

Sundance Film Review: ‘Assassination Nation’

Three centuries ago in Salem, Mass., rumors got 20 residents killed. Imagine if the mob had Twitter. Sam Levinson’s furious fempowerment thriller “Assassination Nation” stars four high school girls in a present-day, parallel-universe Salem forced to grab guns after an anonymous hacker exposes all of the town’s dirt. Midnight audiences started whooping at the opening trigger warning that they were about to see sexism, racism, torture, violence, and fragile male egos, but the actual film feels like a Molotov cocktail thrown at a hazy target. Levinson’s battling more villains than any script can take on, and by the end, his sharp jabs bleed into a gory finale that settles for cathartic cheers.

Lily (Odessa Young) is 18 and she has a secret. The popular beauty is cheating on her boyfriend (Bill Skårsgard, minus the “It” makeup) by sending sexy selfies to married father Nick (Joel McHale) next door. It’s not that easy — in one scene

Michael Douglas' Accuser Susan Braudy Speaks Out: "People Were Frightened for Me"

Michael Douglas' Accuser Susan Braudy Speaks Out:
Michael Douglas' accuser Susan Braudy spoke out about her sexual misconduct allegations against the two-time Oscar winner on Friday's episode of Today. "He thought he was the king of the world and that he could humiliate me without any repercussions," Braudy told NBC News national correspondent Kate Snow. According to Today, Braudy worked for Douglas' production company for three years back in the 1980s—a pinnacle decade for the actor during which he starred in the films Fatal Attraction and Wall Street. During the report, Snow said Braudy claimed Douglas "repeatedly used inappropriate sexual language" and "harassed" her...

“Birthday Song Is A Thriller In Pursuit Of Relentless Thrills” – Subhash K Jha reviews My Birthday Song

My Birthday Song

Starring Sanjay Suri, Nora Fatehi, Zenia Starr

Directed by Samir Soni

Rating: ***(3 Stars)

Actor Samir Soni turns director with a stylish erotic thriller about a man who on his 40th birthday gets his wish –a tumble in the hay with young sexy hot babe, which sets off a spiraling motion into his life.

No Fatal Attraction, this. Though evidently fatally attracted to the theme of a married man destroyed by a one-night stand. Sanjay Suri, always underplayed and affable, plays Rajeev, a hotshot ad filmmaker. The self-consciously stylishly done-up film begins with Rajeev’s birthday party where he is introduced to a young woman who is everything that a 40-year old married man should avoid, specially after a few drinks.

But then, horny ko kaun taal sakta hai?

In no time the sexually rampant man and the seductive stranger are in the bedroom, the birthday cake along with the party,

Making a connection by Jennie Kermode

The course of true love failing to run smooth

Have you ever given online dating a try? Tens of millions of people have, and although this has resulted in a lot of happy relationships (and many more mutually satisfying one night stands), it has also, inevitably, produced a few horror stories. Bad Match, which screened at last year's Frightfest, tells the story of two people looking for very different things who collide at a swipe and end up in a very bad place as a result. Director David Chirchirillo uses this construct to talk about men and women's expectations of each other and the extent to which cinema has contributed to them.

It's very much a post-Fatal Attraction film, I suggested when we discussed it last August, and he agreed.

"That was one hundred percent the intention. I pitched it as Fatal Attraction for the smartphone generation.

Blu-ray Review – Paradise Alley (1978)

Paradise Alley, 1978.

Written and Directed by Sylvester Stallone.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Lee Canalito, Armand Assante, Anne Archer, Frank McRae, Joe Spinell, Terry Funk, Frank Stallone, and Tom Waits.


Three brothers in the slums of 1940s New York try to make their fortune by training the youngest sibling to become an underground wrestler.

After the success of Rocky in 1976 Sylvester Stallone was a hot property in Hollywood and was pretty much able to get any passion projects he wanted a green light, which is why between Rocky and Rocky II we got trucking federation drama F.I.S.T. and, more significantly, Paradise Alley. Significant because as well as writing it Stallone also directed it (and in true Little Britain style, also sang the theme tune), which marked his first time behind the camera, setting him up to direct Rocky II the same year, and also because despite sharing many themes and plot threads as Rocky,

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’
It’s a sign of how little most movies channel contemporary experience that the manners and habits and attitudes of the age of Tinder have remained a relatively off-screen topic. This past January, the Sundance drama “Newness,” directed by Drake Doremus (it has yet to be released), was a designer soap opera that had a few telling observations to make about what it feels like to live your life in a digital meat market. As a movie, though, it didn’t quite take hold. The new pulp thriller “Bad Match” is darker, grimier, and more entertaining. Written and directed by David Chirchirillo, who co-wrote the scurrilous violent hipster comedy “Cheap Thrills” (2013), the movie is “Fatal Attraction” for the age of the revolving-door hook-up, and in its fevered low-budget way it’s just clever enough to do what it sets out to do. It gives toxic masculinity its just desserts.

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Halloween 2017: 31 Movies to Watch on Hulu This October

  • DailyDead
Last week, I gave you guys a few lists from Amazon and Netflix in regards to what they have to offer via their streaming services this fall. As a newbie to Hulu, I only discovered over the weekend that they, too, beyond just being an amazing resource for television programming, offer up a killer selection of genre movies that are free to stream with a standard Hulu membership.

Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.

The Faculty

As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?

Zurich: Glenn Close on Patty Hewes, Alex Forrest, Albert Nobbs and Cruella de Vil
“I always knew I wanted to be an actress, I never thought I'd be a movie star,” says Glenn Close, reflecting on a career, now a quarter century old, that has seen her create some of the most iconic, and controversial, female figures in cinema.

Close is attending the Zurich International Film Festival, which is honoring the Fatal Attraction and Damages star with its Golden Icon award for lifetime achievement. She's also in the Swiss city to present her The Wife. In the feature, from director Bjorn Runge, Close plays the partner of an acclaimed novelist (played by Jonathan Pryce)...

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Fatal Attraction”

This is one of those films that lives in infamy simply because of what it portrayed and how well the actors played their parts. Michael Douglas was after all one of the best actors of his time, while Glenn Close put in a performance that was second to none when it came to being crazy and completely out of control. She’s even gone on to state that there were parts of the movie she wasn’t too fond of and that she would definitely do the role differently if the movie was being made in this day and age. As it

San Sebastián: Glenn Close Discusses ‘The Wife,’ Finding Inspiration, How to Celebrate Award Wins

San Sebastián: Glenn Close Discusses ‘The Wife,’ Finding Inspiration, How to Celebrate Award Wins
San Sebastian — There are few careers that boast the diversity and longevity of that of Glenn Close. There is neither medium nor genre that the actress has not worked in on some level. Typically recognized for her dramatic roles, think “Fatal Attraction,” Close has appeared in comedies: “The Stepford Wives,” “Louie,” animation: “Family Guy,” and “Tarza,” and big budget action films like Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” series.

The actress was in town this week to promote her latest feature “The Wife,” in which Variety described her performance as “a marvel of twisty understatement.” Along with co-star Annie Starke, director Björn Runge and producer Claudia Bluemhuber, the four addressed the press Saturday morning.

The Wife,” is a story told from two perspectives, as described by Runge. “The young couple is creating a life together and the older is reflecting on that life. It’s the same characters, but they are on opposite sides.”

Glenn Close-Starrer “The Wife” Acquired by Sony Classics

The Wife”: Embankment Films

Glenn Close’s latest project has found a home weeks after bowing at the Toronto International Film Festival. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Classics snagged all North American rights to “The Wife,” an adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel of the same name.

The drama sees the six-time Oscar nominee playing Joan Castleman, a woman best known as the wife of an incredibly successful author (Jonathan Pryce, “Taboo”). Joan has dedicated years of her life to nurturing her husband’s genius, but a moment of revelation causes her to reconsider their relationship and her future. Jane Anderson (“Olive Kitteridge,” “Mad Men”) penned the script.

Directed by Bjorn Runge (“Daybreak”), the pic’s producers include Silver Reel’s Claudia Bluemhuber, Anonymous Content’s Rosalie Swedlin, Meta Film’s Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen, and Jo Bamford and Piers Tempest for Tempo Productions.

The Wife” received strong reviews at Tiff, with many critics offering effusive praise for Close’s performance.

Regarding the lack of roles written for older women, the Emmy and Golden Globe winner has observed, “It’s kind of ironic, because we’re at the peak of our power. We really are.”

Close’s many credits include “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Damages,” “Albert Nobbs,” “The Shield,” “Fatal Attraction,” and “The World According to Garp.”

Glenn Close-Starrer “The Wife” Acquired by Sony Classics was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
