"Dark Shadows" Remake Sees the Light of Day 


Back in June, you first heard about the possible "Dark Shadows" project right here.

Johnny Depp was rumored to star, and his favorite director, Tim Burton, was rumored to direct.

Well, it seems like the rumor is getting closer and closer to reality.

But according to our friends at Collider,

Mr. Zanuck, "Dark Shadows" is going to be Tim's next project after "Alice in Wonderland" and they'll be shooting it next summer in London!

File this in the "can't wait" category, because, I can't wait! Vampires? Depp? Burton? Classic? I'm sooooo there!

Oh No! Another Remake Alert! "They Live!!!!" 


Remember the flick "They Live?" The cult flick from John Carpenter is getting a redo makeover from Universal Pictures.

The premise? Wrestler Roddy Piper stars as a down-in-the-dumps construction worker who finds a pair of glasses that lets him see aliens among us. Ooooooh.

There's no writer attached to the project yet, nor a director.

Question remains -- Is Roddy Piper returning?

Remake Alert -- "Arthur" 


British Comedian, Russell Brand ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), is developing a remake of "Arthur," the lovely 1981 classic starring Dudley Moore, Liza Minnelli, and John Gielgud who won Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as the valet.

Brand is currently meeting with scriptwriters for a possible screenplay.

All I'm saying is Brand better not mess this up! I love "Arthur" and the remake will be examined with fine-toothed precision. :happy

"Milk" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does Sean Penn Get? 


I first heard about Harvey Milk from the powerful Academy Award-winning documentary “The Times of Harvey Milk” by director Rob Epstein. That was 1984 and I was a very young film buff. 23 years later, director Gus Van Sant brings Milk’s story back to the big screen. I’m still a film buff; just a little older.

Milk, as you may have known, was the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. But his victory was not just a celebratory cause for gay rights. Before his untimely death in 1978, Milk also became a fighter for human rights.

Academy Award winner Sean Penn (“Mystic River”) gave one of his most heartfelt performances as the slain politician. The actor, known for his mercurial temper, showed his rarely seen tender side. He will be the one to beat this Oscar season.
