19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Cool Videos: Fury Road gets a mash-up with a classic Mad, Mad, Mad comedy

14 July 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Mad Max: Fury Road is easily one of the best movies of 2015 and a favorite of the JoBlo.com crew. The movie has already been spoofed and parodied online in countless ways, but this new one may be the very best. The one and only Mark Millar, creator of Kick-ass, Wanted, and Kingsman, alerted us to this very special mash-up of Mad Max: Fury Road and the classic screwball comedy It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Jennifer Lawrence Would Be Open To Star In More X-men Movies Post-apocalypse

13 July 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few months ago, Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) suggested that X-Men: Apocalypse would be her last go-round as Mystique. Considering her contract does come to an end following the highly anticipated Bryan Singer-directed film, it wasn't too surprising that the Academy Award-winning actress was ready to move on. However, following a few weeks of shooting and an extremely warm reception for the X-Men cast at San Diego Comic-Con, it would seem as though Lawrence may have had a change of heart, at least to some extent. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies alongside co-stars James McAvoy (Wanted) and Michael Fassbender (Assassin's Creed), Lawrence told Yahoo!: "I told Fox not to not ask me" This led Fassbender to jokingly reply with "Because you want to have the option to turn them down?" and Lawrence responded in kind: "I kind of want to bait them with a text and then when they call me, »

New 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Photos Reveal Badass Zombie Slayers

6 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New photos from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies suggest that the forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel may not be exactly what we've been anticipating. First published in 2009, Grahame-Smith's book became an unexpected bestseller, thanks in part to the novelty of introducing the undead into the world created by Jane Austen. The writer followed that up with his novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which was made into a broadly comic, self-consciously silly blockbuster in 2012 by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). That set audience expectations for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but a new interview suggests that the filmmakers have something else in mind. As in Austen's classic book, the movie will revolve around Elizabeth Bennett (Lily...

Maleficent Sequel In The Works; Angelina Jolie Expected To Return

16 June 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney is moving ahead with a sequel to its 2014 hit Maleficent, it was revealed last night, with news that Linda Woolverton has been tapped to pen the script for a follow-up. The current plan is for Angelina Jolie to reprise as the Sleeping Beauty character, and she’s being kept in the loop with regard to the project.

Setting up Maleficent as a franchise, the stand-alone nature of the film aside, makes financial sense for Disney. Though it was an expensive venture with a reported budget of $180 million, the pic grossed almost $760 million worldwide.

Back in 2014, Jolie teased reporters in China with the idea that she could return as the winged titular character, but plot details remain as elusive now as they did then. The first movie told the origin story for a notorious fairy tale villain, so it’s unclear what additional ground there is for Maleficent 2 to cover. »

Maleficent 2 pressing ahead at Disney

15 June 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Angelina Jolie may well be back as Maleficent, as Disney gets to work on Maleficent 2...

One of the most successful transitions of animated film to live action movie that Disney has enjoyed thus far was last year's Maleficent. The movie, which told the backstory of Sleeping Beauty's villain, grossed over $750m at the worldwide box office, and proved to be one of 2014's biggest hits.

Around the time of the movie's release, there was chatter of a potential sequel. And now it seems as though Maleficent 2 is happening.

Deadline is reporting that the studio has hired Linda Woolverton, who penned the first movie, to put together a script for a Maleficent sequel. Angelina Jolie hasn't been confirmed to return, but it's hard to imagine a follow-up working without her. Robert Stromberg, who helmed the original, is not confirmed to return either.

But it's Jolie who's likely to be pivotal here. »

'Maleficent 2' in the Works, Angelina Jolie Expected to Return

15 June 2015 8:34 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I doubt anyone is surprised to hear Disney is moving forward with a sequel to the Angelina Jolie starrer Maleficent, which may have looked like a bit of a risk before its May 2014 release as it carried a budget of $180 million, but after $758+ million worldwide it became quite clear Disney's live action fairy tales were gold mines. Alice in Wonderland brought in $1+ billion in 2010 and Cinderella tallied $532+ million earlier this year on only a $95 million budget. In all likelihood I would expect Maleficent 2 to come in under that original $180 million price tag, though I bet Jolie doesn't come cheap and in order to make a Maleficent sequel you sorta want the star of the original film... rightc Linda Woolverton, who penned the original along with Alice in Wonderland as well as the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass, will write the sequel with the intention of keeping Jolie in the loop, »

Maleficent Sequel In the Works at Disney; Angelina Jolie Expected to Return

15 June 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In 2014, Maleficent earned Walt Disney Pictures more than more than $758 million worldwide and made the live-action reboot trend a viable option. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Disney is developing a sequel for the Angelina Jolie-led reimagining of Disney's 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty. Deadline reports that Maleficent screenwriter Linda Woolverton is returning to pen the sequel with an aim for Jolie to reprise her role. Woolverton is the only talent confirmed to return at this point, but the report notes that Jolie is "kept in the loop", though her involvement would require a new deal. [caption id="attachment_326851" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Walt Disney Pictures[/caption] The first film was an inversion of the Sleeping Beauty's classic narrative, following the villainess Maleficent, chronicling how she became the vindictive woman who cursed the princess Aurora, and painting her in a sympathetic light. The success of a sequel will no doubt depend on drawing Jolie back, »

Disney moving forward with a sequel to ‘Maleficent,’ Jolie possibly involved

15 June 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cue the Disney has no original ideas music.

The Mouse House will dig into one of their most profitable live-action entries in awhile as Deadline reports that they are set to move forward with a sequel to Maleficent with star Angelina Jolie possibly returning.

Linda Woolverton will write the sequel. She wrote the first film, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, the upcoming Alice sequel, and the live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation.

The first Maleficent took a lot to make with a estimated budget of $180 million, but grossed $760 million worldwide. It will be interested with Jolie involved if Disney would allow her to do the sequel, but she could have a lot on her plate with the actress also being courted by Marvel to direct Captain Marvel.

Deadline notes that Jolie has been apart of sequel talks with two of her other hits, Salt and Wanted, but ended up »

Is First Time Timur Bekmambetov's Gravity? [Trailer]

9 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Russian producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch) is bringing what looks to be a thrilling space film in the same wheelhouse as Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity. Called First Time (or Vremya Pervyh), the movie is based on the true story of cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, the first man in space.

More specifically, First Time chronicles Leonov's arduous, five meter space walk from one part of the "Voskhod-2" to the another and with only 30 minutes of oxygen.

Synopsis:

March 18, 1965. For 77 days before the Americans went into space, the Soviet Union wins the technological race when Alexei Leonov first greeted earthlings from outer space, and, according to the chronicle, safely walked back to the ship. But these 5 meters to the gateway are the [Continued ...] »
