‘Cowboy Bebop’ Live-Action Series Officially Makes Gren Nonbinary

In the Cowboy Bebop anime, Grencia Mars Elijah Guo Eckener, nicknamed Gren, was always a character for whom gender was…let’s say, fluid. Basically — in a very anime twist on things — an experimental drug causes Gren to grow breasts. Despite the strangeness of Gren’s origins, the character would become informally recognized as an LGBTQ icon in anime. And the Netflix live-action series is taking it one step further: officially making the live-action Gren a nonbinary character. Netflix revealed...

‘Home Alone’ Director Chris Columbus is Not Happy About That Disney+ Reboot

Chris Columbus, who directed the Christmas classics Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, has some choice words for where Disney can leave the change, you filthy animal. The Home Alone director is not happy about the Home Alone reboot in the works at Disney+, which is set to star Jojo Rabbit scene-stealer Archie Yates and be directed by Dan Mazer (Dirty Grandpa). And while he didn’t go as far as to call the House of Mouse a filthy animal, the sentiment is the same. While on the pres...

‘Short Circuit’ Remake Being Developed Yet Again

Short Circuit, the 1986 comedy featuring robot Johnny 5, is getting a remake – with a Latin-American/Hispanic-American take. Spyglass Media Group is developing the remake, with Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman tapped to handle the script. In the original movie, an experimental military robot is struck by lightning and gains a human-like intelligence. Hey kids, do you remember Short Circuit? It was a sci-fi comedy from 1986 that featured lovable robot Johnny 5 and actor Fisher Stevens in bro...

‘The Guilty’ Remake Cast Grows, Adding Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Riley Keough, and More

Antoine Fuqua is directing a remake of the Danish thriller The Guilty for Netflix with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star. So far, so good. But now a surprisingly large cast has been added around Gyllenhaal, including Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, and more. And that’s where things grow slightly confusing. To be clear: these are all good actors, but their addition here suggests that The Guilty remake is going to be very different than the original. Because the original film is ...

‘Twister’ Director Jan de Bont Once Tried to Make a ‘Godzilla’ Movie Before the 1998 Version

There are so many movie projects that could have been — whole documentaries have been made about some of them, whole cult followings have risen up around axed movies — but every now and then, we get a failed film that might have spared us a little pain in the long run. One such one was Jan de Bont‘s failed Godzilla project, which the Twister and Speed director was developing before Roland Emmerich’s infamously disliked 1998 version. In an interview with Polygon about his 1999 remake of The H...

BBC is set to revisit Brideshead Revisited. But the British network’s new adaptation of the Evelyn Waugh classic novel has a few exciting things going for it: a prestigious director, Luca Guadagnino, who has just wrapped up his first TV project, and a star-studded ensemble led by Andrew Garfield that would feature a Carol reunion between fellow stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Guadagnino has dipped his toes in TV with his HBO drama We Are Who We Are and developed a taste for remakes wit...

‘Mulan’ Opening Scenes Now Available Online

Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan is now available on Blu-ray and digital, as well as available for premium purchase on Disney+. Things didn’t exactly work out exactly the way Disney wanted with the epic – they had hoped to release Mulan everywhere theatrically and ride to box office glory. Instead, because of the coronavirus, the film ended up going to Disney+ in the U.S. – for an extra price. But if you’ve been waiting around to access Mulan another way, it’s now available on Blu-ray and d...

‘The Painter and the Thief’: This Year’s Award-Winning Documentary is Getting a Narrative Remake

When the coronavirus pandemic ramped up back in March, it became clear that 2020 would have a giant asterisk next to it when we look back on this bizarre period in history. As a movie year, it’s been…well, “unconventional” doesn’t seem accurate enough to do it justice. But while tons of big films have shifted out of this year and left giant gaps in our typical entertainment diet, many of those gaps were filled by smaller movies which were released directly to streaming services. Example: The Pa...

The People Under the Stairs, Wes Craven’s 1991 over-the-top horror flick that takes aim at the Reagan era, is getting a remake courtesy of Jordan Peele. Peele will produce the People Under the Stairs remake for Universal, and while some Wes Craven fans may initially be resistant to such an idea, the fact of the matter is that the original People Under the Stairs is a movie with good ideas and poor execution. There’s room for improvement. Jordan Peele is setting his sights on The People Un...

‘Scenes From a Marriage’ Will Reunite Jessica Chastain with Oscar Isaac After Michelle Williams Drops Out
