Nicolas Roeg's 'Don't Look Now' And '80s Cult Horror 'The Entity' Getting Remakes

28 April 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Don't be angry, just accept it. Hollywood will always find ways take old things, as perfect as they may be, and put contemporary new clothes on them. All you can hope is that everyone involved endeavors to get it even half right. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Nicolas Roeg's classic, "Don't Look Now," will get a new coat of paint. The producers behind "The Last House On The Left" remake, "The Strangers," "Non-Stop," "The Gunman," and "Project X" are driving this one for StudioCanal, so make of that what you will. They also helped bring "Coraline" to life, though that seems to be an outlier in the catalog of Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman. The plan is to find a studio for this before hiring writers and directors and that kind of stuff.

Chris Columbus calls New Gremlins a ‘Reinvention’

Rather recently, writer Carl Ellsworth (The Last House on the Left, Goosebumps) was hired to tackle a new Gremlins, with words jumbled between remake/reboot/reimagining and however we presently attempt to call new versions of old favorites. Now producer Chris Columbus (who penned the original Joe Dante-directed Christmas classic) has thrown another re into the mix:…

The Gremlins Reboot Just Took Another Big Step Forward

9 April 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There’s been a lot of “one step forward, two steps back” movement with the Gremlins reboot, but things finally seem to be getting back on track. Attempting to firm up the production team, Warner Bros. has hired Carl Ellsworth to write the script. Fingers crossed, this hopefully means the studio is close to naming a director.  The news of Ellsworth’s involvement was first reported by Deadline. He has already written a lot in the horror genre, including Disturbia with Shia Labeouf, The Last House On the Left with Garrett Dillahunt, and Red Eye with Rachel McAdams. More recently, he wrote the script for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Goosebumps movie starring Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, and Odeya Rush. So this won’t be his first time writing stories about creepy critters. Christopher Columbus wrote the script for the original Gremlins in 1984, and »

Gremlins reboot gets screenwriter, Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg to produce

9 April 2015 12:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has hired a new screenwriter to pen the reboot to classic 1980’s horror-comedy Gremlins.

Carl Ellsworth, who has written the upcoming Goosebumps film, is a consistent writer in Hollywood and has penned the scripts for films such as Disturbia and the remake to The Last House on the Left. He will work from a previous draft by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

A mooted remake/reboot of Gremlins has been mooted for many years, with many rumours at one point or another pointing to a sequel rather than a remake, but now it seems Warner’s are set on refreshing the franchise which has laid dormant since 1990’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

The original screenwriter of Gremlins, Chris Columbus, was previously in talks to direct but will know just produce the film, alongside the original film’s executive producer Steven Spielberg.

The Gremlins reboot has a new writer

8 April 2015 11:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the Gremlins reboot still going, it's been revealed that a new writer has joined the project: Red Eye and Disturbia's Carl Ellsworth...

The last we heard, the long-mooted Gremlins reboot was on hold.

The new addition to the film series created by the great Joe Dante was being written by Seth Grahame Smith, but in January, he revealed that the project had "run out of steam" - producers Christopher Columbus (who wrote the  1984 original) and Steven Spielberg were, he said, busy on other projects.

"I think we just ran out of steam", he said. "It's one of those things where everybody got so busy doing other things. It's something I would love to come back to, but right now, Steven's making two movies back to back and Chris Columbus is busy [making Pixels]. We're all taking a five-minute break on that".

We're now hearing that Grahame-Smith, the writer of »

'Gremlins' Remake Back on Track with New Writer

8 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January, we reported that the Gremlins reboot is on "indefinite hold," with producer Seth Grahame-Smith claiming that the project simply "ran out of steam." Today, Deadline reports that the project is moving forward once again, hiring screenwriter Carl Ellsworth (Goosebumps) to pen the script. We first reported on the project back in May 2013, when both Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg were brought on to produce, but neither of them were mentioned in this new report, so it's possible that they may be off the project entirely.

The site also reports that Chris Columbus, who wrote the 1984 original, will serve as a producer alongside original executive producer Steven Spielberg, but no story details were given on this reboot. Chris Columbus was at one time believed to be directing, although studio sources say that isn't happening at this point. It isn't known if a full screenplay was ever written before Carl Ellsworth came on board, »

Writer Set for Gremlins Remake

8 April 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Joe Dante's seminal horror comedy Gremlins celebrated its 30th anniversary last summer and its underrated sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, will have its 25th birthday this June. The anniversaries of these two memorable creature features may have many remembering the franchise and wishing for that third installment that never was. Though a Zach Galligan-starring Gremlins 3 sadly never came to fruition, a remake has been in and out of the works for quite some time and was recently presumed to be dead. But Warner Bros. looks to be resurrecting the project, as they've hired a writer to scribe the remake, one who has lent his pen to both the hardcore horror and horror comedy sub-genres.

According to /Film, Warner Bros. has hired Carl Ellsworth to pen the Gremlins remake, with Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg are producing the project. Many fans will remember that Columbus wrote and »

Gremlins Remake Lands Disturbia Writer

8 April 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Color me shocked: the Gremlins remake is gaining momentum once again. In an era where TV shows like Coach and Full House are being given the redo treatment, it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. hasn’t given up on a new adaptation of Joe Dante’s 1984 classic. The most recent iteration of the project had Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) producing and bringing an idea to Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus—who scripted the first film—but he recently said the project “ran out of steam.” Well it looks as though Warner Bros. has found plenty more steam to throw into the property, as Deadline reports that Disturbia screenwriter Carl Ellsworth has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the Gremlins remake, with Columbus and Spielberg producing. Ellsworth’s credits include the remakes The Last House on the Left and Red Dawn, as well as the upcoming Goosebumps, so his »

Carl Ellsworth On To Write Gremlins Remake

8 April 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though a lot of fans of the Gremlins films that originally seared the critters into our memories might want to add “don’t ever try to remake the original” to the famous list of rules for care of Mogwai, Warner Bros, Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus are nevertheless still pushing ahead with a reboot. Carl Ellsworth is the latest writer to take a crack at the script.Exactly what the studio wants from the new film is not yet clear, since it’s still deep in development. But chances are there will be a new take on the first film’s story – famously written by Columbus with Joe Dante marshalling the madness – set in a sleepy, quaint American everytown at Christmas that is thrown into chaos by the bolshie beasts.Spielberg (who produced the original) and Columbus are strictly on board as producers for now, and seem to have hired »
