  • Remo Williams fans will be pleased to know that RemoWilliams: The Destroyer is in process. The plot will follow a New Jersey cop convited of a crime he didn’t commit. He’s sentenced to die in the electric chair, but his death ends up being faked so he could become a vigilante (named Destroyer) as part of a government sponsored assassin squad that works beyond the law. The last time the literary character saw the big screen was in 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins
  • Due to the sleeper success of The Hangover this summer, a sequel is a lock. Look for it to hit theaters over the Memorial Day holiday, 2011…

  • Looks like Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer have both been tapped to play roles in the SNL-skit-turned-feature-lengthed-film MacGruber. Set to begin production next month, the plot will have MacGruber retired & now living as a Monk. He is brought out of retirement to save the country once again. This time, he will face off against the evil Cunth (Kilmer).

Phillippe is tapped to play MacGruber’s reluctant partner…
  • The low-budget 3D remake of The Gate has finally got back on track now that financing issues have been worked out…
  • The feature-lengthed version of Baywatch is being rewritten. Instead of following the direction of the TV series, they plan to go in a more comedic way in the vein of the 80’s hits Stripes & Police Academy
