Nothing like getting the gang back together after a successful entry. That seems to be the case for the Mission: Impossible franchise, and that includes doing something they’ve never done before.
Variety reports Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed this year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is in talks to return in both capacities for the sixth entry. If McQuarrie agrees, he would be the first director in the franchise to return for a second entry.
On top of bringing McQuarrie back, Variety adds that stand-out Rebecca Ferguson could also be coming back for the next movie after the studio signed her for an option. Paramount is looking to turn around the next Mi film after Rogue Nation was such a runaway hit.

There are a whole bunch of movies that are featured on a list which is clearly labelled ‘Never To Be Remade.’ One of those movies is Christopher Nolan‘s brilliant 2000 drama Memento, but news reaches us this morning that a remake is in active development over at Ambi Pictures, a company that recently acquired the 400-title Exclusive Media Group library, which Nolan’s break-out movie was included within.
Memento revolved around a man (Guy Pearce in a career-breaking role) that creates a strange system to help him remember things; so he can hunt for the murderer of his wife without his short-term memory loss being an obstacle.
“Memento is a masterpiece that leaves audiences guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its daring approach, »

Less than 15 years after its U.S. theatrical release, Christopher Nolan's Memento is already being eyed for a remake. The film's remake rights were acquired when Exclusive Media Group's extensive film library was sold to Ambi Pictures in September, and among Ambi's first orders of business is to remake Nolan's Oscar-nominated, mind-bending thriller, Variety reports.
"Memento has been consistently ranked as one of the best films of its decade," Ambi chief investor Andrea Iervolino said in a statement. "People who've seen Memento 10 times still feel they need to see it one more time. »
Riding high on the likes of The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, and Interstellar, Christopher Nolan is one of the biggest filmmakers working today. That, of course, wasn.t always the case, and in 2000, the little known director burst onto the scene with Memento, a twisted indie mystery thriller with a clever hook. Despite only being 15-years-old, and a movie that still totally holds up, Memento is getting a remake, because why not. Ambi Pictures recently acquired the back catalog of Exclusive Media Group, a library that also includes Donnie Darko, Sliding Doors, Cruel Intentions, and hundreds more titles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, following this windfall, they gave a green light to the Memento remake. In a statement, Ambi head Monika Bacardi said: Memento is a masterpiece that leaves audiences guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its daring approach.

The movie that brought Christopher Nolan into the public eye, Memento, has been rightly hailed as a masterpiece. The superbly edited, non-linear tale of Guy Pearce’s amnesiac trying to solve his wife murder consistently finds itself on top of fans and critics favourite movies list fifteen years on, and is one movie that should never be remade. So, of course, its been targeted by the Hollywood Remake Machine, with Ambi pictures announcing that they have acquired the rights to the film, along with some other cult classics (which include Donnie Darko, Sliding Doors, and Cruel Intentions), with producer Andrea Lervolino saying: Memento has been consistently ranked as one of the best films of its decade. People who’ve seen Memento 10 times still feel they need to see it one more time. This is a quality we feel really supports and justifies a remake. The bar is set high thanks »

Starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano, Memento was lauded for its nonlinear narrative structure and motifs of memory, perception, grief, and self-deception. The film was a box office success and received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing.
Nolan’s original Memento follows Leonard (played by Guy Pearce) who is tracking down the man who raped and murdered his wife. The difficulty, however, of locating his wife’s killer is compounded by the fact that he suffers from a rare, »

In a statement, Ambi's Monika Bacardi swore the remake would be just as good as "the original" Memento, which is a thing we all have to say now.

The Italian film company gained the rights to Christopher Nolan's backwards thriller when it bought the Exclusive Media Group library in September. Hollywood's reboot cycle got a little bit shorter today, as Ambi Pictures announced that it was developing a remake of Memento, a movie that, if it were a person, would just be starting tenth grade. »

Putting Christopher Nolan on the map after his debut feature Following, his 2000 Oscar-nominated drama Memento was an immediately well-received, inventive feat of nonlinear storytelling with an emotional center to back it up. 15 years later, and still remaining perhaps his most impressive feature, it holds up wonderfully, so, of course, Hollywood is planning to remake it.
Announced today, Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi‘s Ambi Pictures — the same group that threatened a remake of the Federico Fellini classic La Dolce Vita — are set to finance and produce the remake, although no talent has yet to be attached, THR reports. The problems began this past September when the company acquired the rights to the film, along with a library of 400 others from Exclusive Media Group, who also own Donnie Darko, End of Watch, Sliding Doors, The Way Back, Rush, The Ides of March, and Cruel Intentions. Memento looks to be one of »

The movie that put Christopher Nolan on the map, and introduced his penchant for narrative-bending storytelling, "Memento" seems like the kind of film that is truly inimitable. But as such things go these days in Hollywood, a remake will be attempted. So, why is this happening? A press release reveals that Ambi Pictures picked up the library of Exclusive Media Group, and among the titles (which also includes "Cruel Intentions" (which is getting a TV series), "Donnie Darko," "Rush," and "Sliding Doors") is "Memento," so one presumes that Ambi have to start figuring out how to recoup on the investment. Thus, we have arrived at remake. And while acknowledging Nolan's movie is a "masterpiece," Ambi execs Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi are gonna do it anyway. “ 'Memento' is a masterpiece that leaves audiences guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its. »

Can you imagine Freddy Krueger without his famed fedora? Now you don't have to. Here's the "Newsies" version Wes Craven and company almost went with, before settling on the iconic look we know today (courtesy Bloody-Disgusting): Doesn't quite have the same feel, does it? It's fascinating to wonder whether the paperboy cap and sleeveless (!) red-and-green sweater would have doomed the franchise before it even began. We'll never know, but it's fun to speculate as a sort of "Sliding Doors"-esque scenario. The photo, in case you were wondering, comes courtesy of Thommy Hutson, who wrote and directed the excellent four-hour documentary "Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy," which covers all films in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series except the much-criticized 2010 remake. Trust: it's a must-see for any hardcore fan of the series. Navigate over to Bloody-Disgusting to see an additional image that features a number of different »

If social media is the best barometer for what's really going on in pop culture, then you'd have to call this "Hate-Watch Week" in television-land. Twitter exploded with snark and outrage during the Emmys, the Republican debate, and — from out of nowhere — the premiere of Best Time Ever, Neil Patrick Harris' bizarre new mash-up of game show, variety spectacular, and cringe-inducing hidden-camera comedy. Over the next few months, TV will be overstuffed with new and returning series, and fans will be all over the Internet, declaring allegiances. But here »
Tomorrow is an exciting day for The Mindy Project fans, as the best romantic comedy on television returns for its fourth season on its brand new home, Hulu. And while it’s probably already feeling like Christmas has come early for many of the show’s viewers, as it was originally uncertain whether or not the series would continue after Fox cancelled it back in May, we can promise there’s even more reason to be excited with just how good the Season 4 premiere, “While I was Sleeping,” is. While my colleague Jen Winkler will have her full-fledged review of the episode up as soon as it goes live on Hulu, I wanted to tease five reasons why I think Mindy Project fans should be very pumped up for the Season 4 opener. The Premise It’s been widely reported that The Mindy Project Season 4 premiere (at least part of it »
