Takashi Miike's Audition getting U.S. remake; Richard Gray to helm

In this day and age of reboots, remakes, and reimaginings, it's crazy to think that Takaski Miike's 1999 classic AUDITION hasn't already gotten the remake treatment, but better late than never, right? Oh, I can hear the groans of disappointment already, but I've always felt a remake of AUDITION would be one that I could get behind (although I may be in the minority)....

Producer Antony I Ginnane planning remakes of Thirst and The Survivor

While remakes are a dime-a-dozen nowadays (and oftentimes to the chagrin of fans of the original pictures) there are still some films that could benefit from the remake treatment. Case in point: Producer Antony I. Ginnane is out to remake both the 1979 vampire/sci-fi feature THIRST and the supernatural-infused thriller THE SURVIVOR. While neither film is heralded as classics of the...

Exclusive! Peter Berg wants IN on a Shocker remake with Wes Craven!

While covering a LONE SURVIVOR event for our evil stepfather site JoBlo.com , I got the chance to talk to director and all around class act PETER BERG who of course broke into the business by way of WES CRAVEN's SHOCKER in 1989.

The genre was hit pretty hard with some big news a few months back when it was announced that the cult classic SLEEPAWAY CAMP was being eyed for a franchise reboot.

It was almost one year ago when we learned that action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger was being rumored to have a major role in the remake of Troma's cult classic THE TOXIC AVENGER, a campy reboot to be helmed by HOT TUB TIME MACHINE helmer Steve Pink.
