Misery Remake Reportedly In Development, Will Be A Modernized Take

Iím your number one fan.Ē
For those whoíve witnessed Rob Reinerís eerily believable thriller, Misery, those handful of words will forever live on in our nightmares, right? Indeed, Kathy Batesí psychopathic, Academy Award-winning turn is so terrifically executed, that itís proven difficult watching the actress in literally anything else ever since. But hey, maybe thatís just me.
Luckily, though, for fans of 1990ís cinematic adaptation of Stephen Kingís famous novel, we may have some really great news for you. Thatís right, according to sources close to We Got This Covered Ė the same ones who told us that a Swamp Thing movie is happening, which Bloody Disgusting later confirmed, and that Lethal Weapon 5 is moving forward with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, which was confirmed this week Ė a Misery remake is now in early development. Furthermore, our sources say that the new project will be a modernized take on Kingís best-selling novel. Beyond that, however, details are pretty scarce due to how early on it is.


Of course, if itís anything like the original film, Iím sure weíre going to be in for a tense and nailbiting ride. Narratively, Misery centers on writer Paul Sheldon (played brilliantly by James Caan), whoís rescued from a car crash by a crazy fan in a hazardous blizzard. Once ďrescued,Ē however, the author is physically forced to write new books to satisfy Annie Wilkesí own personal whims.
Without a doubt, one of the most iconic scenes from the psychological thriller features a sledgehammer (Iím sure you remember the one, *shivers*), and Ė oh, boy Ė it still haunts my dreams to this day. Hopefully, the new remake will retain the same pitch black comedy bite of Reinerís classic, as well as rival Caan and Batesí magnificent on-screen chemistry

Train to Susan to get a Americam remake.

Hollywood remake of South Korean movie Train to Busan gets a director


The South Korean zombie blockbuster is getting the Hollywood treatment
South Korean blockbuster Train to Busan is getting a Hollywood remake, and the project now has a director. Timo Tjahjanto is set to helm the movie for the studio New Line, Deadline reports.

Released in 2016, the original movie is a zombie apocalypse thriller directed by Yeon Sang-ho. It mostly takes place on – you guessed it – a train going from Seoul to Busan as a chemical leak at a biotech plant causes a zombie outbreak to hit the country. When an infected woman slips onto the train undetected before it leaves the station, the lives of all the passengers on board are suddenly at risk. The movie stars Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-seok, and Jung Yu-mi. A sequel dealing with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, Peninsula, was released in 2020.

Tjahjanto recently directed the Netflix action thriller The Night Comes for Us and made his name as one half of the Mo Brothers with Kimo Stamboel, the pair directing cult Indonesian horror and action movies like Macabre and Killers. This will be Tjahjanto's first Hollywood feature.

Aquaman director James Wan is one of the remake's producers, along with Gary Dauberman. Wan is also producing the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, which is based on the video game of the same name. Daubman, meanwhile, has penned several movies for New Line including It and It Chapter Two. The pair are set to work together again on an upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's novel Salem’s Lot, with Dauberman writing and directing and Wan producing

Superman reboot.

https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a3...oot-jj-abrams/


Superman is getting rebooted with new movie from Star Wars' JJ Abrams
Superman is coming back to the big screen in a new movie reboot from Star Wars' JJ Abrams and Black Panther comics writer Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Originally reported by Shadow and Act (and later confirmed by Deadline), the reboot is very early in its development process, with no start or release date planned as of yet. It's also not clear if it'll feature Henry Cavill reprising his Superman role.

While we'll see Cavill again as Superman in Zack Snyder's Justice League, we'd be surprised if he pulled on the cape again for this new reboot and it's likely that we'll be seeing someone else take on the role.


Interestingly, Coates is attached to Ryan Coogler's long-gestating movie Wrong Answer which will star Michael B Jordan, who has previously been linked to the role of Superman and who fans who likely be on board with seeing in the role.

"To be invited into the DC Extended Universe by Warner Bros, DC Films and Bad Robot is an honour," Coates told Shadow and Act. "I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America's most iconic mythic hero."

Abrams, who will produce the movie under his Bad Robot company with Hannah Minghella, added: "There is a new, powerful and moving Superman story yet to be told


"We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with the brilliant Mr Coates to help bring that story to the big screen, and we're beyond thankful to the team at Warner Bros for the opportunity
