2 nuggets I heard today:

- Paramount is developing a remake of Soapdish.... I remember enjoying the movie in theaters some. But I don't think I've watched it since.
Apparently they've hired Robot Chicken's Ben Schwartz to write the screenplay

- D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye, I Am Number Four) has been hired to adapt and direct the comic Preacher...

I remember the original being great. And I bet it holds up fine. (And I bet that there's no need for a remake.)
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

But can't that be said of every movie that doesn't feature Schwarzenegger?

LOS ANGELES, CA, MARCH 3, 2011—Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”) co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, in the most significant property acquisition negotiations in the Company’s 13-year history, are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic 1982 science-fiction thriller “Blade Runner.”
Alcon is negotiating to secure the rights from producer-director Bud Yorkin, who will serve as producer on “Blade Runner” along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers. Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film.
The project would be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. International rights are yet to be determined. Johnson and Kosove stated: “We are honored and excited to be in business with Bud Yorkin. This is a major acquisition for our company, and a personal favorite film for both of us. We recognize the responsibility we have to do justice to the memory of the original with any prequel or sequel we produce. We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium only.”
Among its many distinctions, “Blade Runner” has been singled out as one of the greatest movies of all time by countless polls and media outlets, and overwhelmingly as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications.
Released by Warner Bros. almost 30 years ago, "Blade Runner" was adapted by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and directed by Ridley Scott following his landmark “Alien.”
The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction). “Blade Runner” was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society. Alcon’s COO Scott Parish and head of business affairs David Fierson are negotiating on behalf of the Company.

Christopher Nolan may reboot another famous franchise once he’s completed ‘The Dark Night Rises,’ as Alcon Entertainment is looking at him to expand the world of Ridley Scott’s 1982 film ‘Blade Runner,’ www.slashfilm.com is reporting. The production company recently bought the rights to make prequels or sequels to the hit movie, and would love to reunite with Nolan. The director-writer-producer first worked with Alcon when he released his 2002 psychological thriller ‘Insomnia.’

Alcom producer and co-founder Andrew Kosove has told the website io9 that he would love to have Nolan direct a prequel. Kosove, who added that the independent production company may never even have the funds to make more ‘Blade Runner’ movies, said that he and fellow Alcon co-founder and producer Broderick Johnson will discuss what direction they want the story to go in. If that story fits Nolan’s style, they will push to have him direct the film.

Kosove added that “I think whatever success we’ve had at Alcon…that philosophy of believing in filmmakers, giving them some parameters and letting them do their jobs, has served us very, very well. And it’s how we’ll approach this process.” He also said Alcon had a great experience with Nolan when they worked on ‘Insomnia’ together, and he appreciates the methodology that the director brought to the Batman world.

So this sounded interesting, since I enjoy the James Patterson's Alex Cross books.
JoBlo.com wrote:MATTHEW FOX LANDS FIRST MAJOR POST-LOST ROLE IN I, ALEX CROSS

For Lost fans who thought the roles would come pouring in for its star, Matthew Fox, after the show wrapped, your wish is now a reality. He's landed a big part in I, ALEX CROSS. So, how much do they need him to whine?

Actually, quite the contrary, he'll be something of a badass instead.

Fox plays Michael Sullivan, who kills both for money and thrills. He’s known as the Butcher of Sligo and shows why after Cross thwarts one of his killing attempts. Sullivan makes his retribution personal, by killing the detective’s wife in gruesome fashion. Then it becomes a mano a mano battle between them. Sullivan is one of the best known villains in the Patterson-penned novel series.

It's kind of hard to picture Fox as a malicious killer, but I'm certainly looking forward to seeing him try.


And then I read the last paragraph...
