The Team Behind ‘You’re Next’ And ‘The Guest’ To Remake ‘I Saw The Devil’

We know that no movie – especially no horror movie – is safe from the remake bug. If we didn’t know that, we certainly learned it with the Audition news. It’s no surprise, then, to hear that a remake of Kim Jee-Woon’s 2010 revenge thriller I Saw The Devil has been commissioned.

There’s good news, though. It looks like this remake will be tackled by writer-director team Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard, who are close to sealing the deal

The two are among the hotter names in indie horror. Besides contributing to both V/H/S films, they gave us a …

First ‘Town That Dreaded Sundown’ Remake Trailer Is Absolutely Gorgeous

A remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown is premiering at Fantastic Fest this year, and earlier today we got our first look at what may turn out to be a really entertaining reboot.

Starring Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard and more, the new version of The Town That Dreaded Sundown will kick off sixty-five years after the events of the first movie, with another moonlight killer behind a series of grisly slayings. It’s unclear whether or not this update will be told using the same documentary style approach as the original, but after seeing the first trailer we …

‘Bang Bang’ Trailer: This ‘Knight and Day’ Bollywood Remake Looks Incredible

We don’t talk about Bollywood films as much as we probably should, but today I saw a trailer I could not resist posting here on UTG.

There was a film a few years back starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz called Knight And Day. In the film, which critics and audiences did not care for, a girl (Diaz) gets mixed up with a spy (Cruise) who is trying to clear his name. Chaos and romance soon ensue, as you can probably guess, but for whatever reason the film did not perform well when it was released.

Fast forward to …

So Now There’s This English-Language ‘Audition’ Remake

Because the English-language J-horror remakes won’t end until we run out of J-horror hits to remake – and likely not even then – we can now look forward to an Audition starring white people.

As reported by Deadline, Mario Kassar is putting together an adaptation of the notorious 1997 novel (and not an adaptation of the unduplicable Takashi Miike adaptation). Kasar was, most notably, executive producer of TerminatorRambo, and Basic InstinctRichard Gray will direct, with his most notable credit being an as-yet-unreleased Justin Long thriller.

For the uninitiated, Audition is about a lonely widower …

The Upcoming ‘Maniac Cop’ Remake Has Script Writer

Most movie lovers have a soft spot for campy and cheesy horror films. Even though they were probably terrifying when they first hit theaters, nowadays some of the effects are almost comical.

Plans have been in the works to shoot a remake for quite a long time, but now some information has been revealed that may help the production along a little bit more quickly.

Holy Sh!t: Key and Peele to Produce ‘Police Academy’ Remake

I never knew I wanted a Police Academy remake until now.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, best known for their incredible Comedy Central sketch comedy show Key and Peele, have signed on to produce a remake of Police Academy. They have no contractual obligation to appear in the film at this point, but considering their history as performers it seems more than likely they will at least make an appearance. Scott Zabielski (Tosh.O) will direct.

The original Police Academy was a box office smash in 1984, and the franchise saw …

Jason Sudeikis May Be The New ‘Fletch’

There were a number of years in the mid 2000s where Hollywood was buzzing with rumors that Zach Braff would be filling Chevy Chase’s shoes in a reboot of the Fletch franchise. Those conversations eventually cooled around the time Scrubs went off the air, and as far as we were concerned so did the heat around the Fletch franchise.

Apparently, we were wrong.

Whenever a new comic book movie begins ramping up for production, one of the first questions asked is whether or not the plot will follow in the footsteps of a story from the comic series that inspired the adaptation. Most of the time the answer is no, and that appears to to be the case with the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

A new casting call from 20th Century Fox seeking people for the reboot of Fantastic Four has revealed a synopsis that hints at an original story. The description reads:…
