M. Night Shyamalan wants an Unbreakable 2

Before M. Night Shyamalan basically imploded into himself in one inept and repetitive execution after another he made Unbreakble. That film kind of concluded perfectly and a sequel would most likely ruin it, but evidently peo...

A new film adaptation of Stephen King's It has been bouncing around for a while now with director Cary Fukunaga attached. It hasn't really gotten off the ground, though, but now, possibly because Fukunaga is so cool nowa...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel lands director

I think we were all a bit surprised that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was (1) not that bad and (2) a massive hit. Thanks to those to facts a sequel was pretty much announced right away and director Jonathan Liebesma...

Need some brooding 90s superhero-like goth stuff? The Crow, which, lets be honest, wasn't that great movie, is being remade and now it has a brand new director. Replacing J. Javier Gutierrez, who originally replaced ...

Rumor: Justin Lin returning for Fast & Furious finale?

I've reached a crossroads. Writing so much about the Fast and the Furious franchise makes me feel like such a hypocrite. Take the first trailer for Furious 7, for instance. Here I am celebrating a series' seventh installment ...

Wonder Woman close to having female director

I think we're all aware of the under representation of female directors in Hollywood. That problem is even greater when we're talking about big budget blockbusters. Women directors are almost completely missing from tent pole...

Jamie Foxx and Benecio Del Toro join Harmony Korine's The Trap

Do you know of Harmony Korine's last film, Spring Breakers? If you somehow don't, please remedy this immediately. It was one of the best surprises of 2013, and if his next film can be anywhere near as good then holy moley my ...

James Wan returning for The Conjuring 2

In case you missed the news The Conjuring 2 was delayed until 2016 instead of having a 2015 release date. That was kind of weird because Annabelle did really well at the box office so you'd think they'd want more ou...

David Ayer is one of my favorite folks in the business right now. Although he's only directed a few films (most notably End of Watch and the upcoming WWII tank film, Fury), he's a great screenwriter who's really put in the wo...

Shadow of the Colossus movie is still a thing, has new director

I'm pretty sure once the Shadow of the Colossus movie is made we'll be repeating that subheader (which is a quote from the game) back at the filmmakers because despite being awesome I fear they will ruin it. Wait, you fo...
