"Cliffhanger" Gets the Reboot Treatment! 


Since "Star Trek" was super-successful at the box-office, expect more films to get rebooted like "Cliffhanger!"

The 1993 actioner starring Sylvester Stallone about mountain climbers will get the reboot treatment, this time, the new flick will center on young climbers.

No screenwriter is attached yet (nor is Stallone attached to star!), but this new version will feature multiple dangerous mountains for the film's locations.

StudioCanal and Original Films are set to produce.

I remember the original trailer for its prominent use of classical music, so I was able to dug it up, and here it is.

Monica Bellucci Joins Nicolas Cage in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice!" 


The alluring Monica Belluci will play a sorceress opposite Nicolas Cage in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."

She'll play Veronica, Cage's character's long lost love.

The plot is about a sorcerer who recruits his young apprentice to battle evil forces in Manhattan! Sorta like a dumb-down version of "Harry Potter." :happy

Jon Turteltaub is directing the film, which will open July 16 next year.

Another "Jekyll and Hyde" Film But This One's For 50 Cent! 


Last week, we told you that Keanu Reeves is attached to star in Universal Pictures' "Jekyll."

This week, another film is being planned based on Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." This one's going to be directed by Abel Ferrara and Forest Whitaker and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson are attached to play the lead roles in the classic tale about a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter ego.

Gothic meets hip hop in Ferrara's retelling of the classic story!

Intriguing!
