Paramount wants to remake the classic Alfred Hitchcock film The Man Who Knew Too Much, but this time... for teens, according to Badass News Digest.
This isn't the first time the studios have done a remake on the famous suspense director's flicks.
Disturbia, starring Shia LaBoeuf, was a remake of the 1954 Hitchcock film, starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly.
The original Man Who Knew Too Much was made in 1934 by Hitchcock. He then remade his own film in 1956, starring James Stewart (again) and Doris Day. The story is about a couple who accidentally find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy plot while vacationing in Morocco and their son is kidnapped because of it.
John and Jez Butterworth are said to be writing the remake (Jez Butterworth previously worked on the remake of The Birds).
Hollywood can't seem to find very many original ideas anymore. Whether it's a remake of a previous Hollywood movie or an adaptation of a book, it seems many films come from another source.
2011 isn't any different. Remakes coming out or in development are all over Hollywood this year - we're guessing with many more yet to be announced.
To get you started, here are a few of them.
What are you most excited to see? Take our poll and have your say in our comments section.
Cleopatra: Angelina Jolie is rumored to be playing the lead role in a remake of the 1963 telling of the classic story, starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. The two fell in love on the set and got married shortly after. Maybe they'll do the same thing and cast Brad Pitt in the male lead. Producer Scott Rudin even told the New York Daily News that the role is being developed with Jolie in mind.
Frankenstein: Sony is said to be developing a current-day remake of the classic Frankenstein story by Mary Shelley. There have already been a ton of remakes of this story, including one directed by Kenneth Branaugh, starring Robert De Niro in 1994. This new remake is said to be slated for a 2012 release.
Godzilla: Legendary Pictures is well on its way to developing a remake of the Japanese sea monster in its new adaptation of Godzilla. Gareth Edwards, director of the Indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is in negotiations to direct the upcoming Godzilla film for Legendary Pictures along with Warner Bros.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Talk of this remake has been buzzing around for a while and although we haven't heard a lot about the remake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the news hasn't been squashed either. Last we heard, Transformers director Michael Bay is set to direct the remake, which is slated for a 2012 release.
The Three Musketeers: Paul W.S. Anderson is set to direct a new 3D vision of The Three Musketeers. It will star Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovich and Christoph Waltz. The new film is set to hit theater on October 14, 2011.
Footloose: Filming has already started for the remake of the 1984 original, starring Kevin Bacon. The film will star Dancing With The Stars alum Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald. The movie is set to be released on April 1, 2011.
Overboard: Jennifer Lopez is set to star in the remake of the 1987 film Overboard. The original starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and enjoyed moderate success. Will Smith is producing the remake.
A Star is Born: Slated for a 2012 remake, A Star is Born will star Beyonce. The film will be directed by Clint Eastwood who usually makes pretty good films, so we can assume this remake will be legit. This would be the fourth remake of the film. Earlier versions include a 1937 version, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March; a 1854 version, starring Judy Garland and James Mason; and a 1976 version, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. It is set to be released in 2012.
WHICH REMAKE ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE?
The official logo for the new X-Men: First Class has popped up on the movie's Facebook page. Check it out below!
The trailer will also be released tomorrow on the Facebook fan page in order to build up the social media surrounding the film, according to Entertainment Weekly.
You can find the Facebook fan page at facebook.com/XMenMovies.
The film, starring James McAvoy, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, and Michael Fassbender, will follow the early friendship and later rivalry of Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (Magneto).
X-Men: First Class is set to hit theaters on June 3, 2011.
Obviously the real audience for Justin Bieber: Never Say Never is tween girls, but now Paramount is targeting another, perhaps unconventional group for his new film.
The studio has been screening the movie for many Christian faith leaders in hopes that the film will attract a religious audience, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Bieber is quite vocal about his faith during interview, and you can see it as well throughout the film. Many times, Bieber is seen praying before a concert or talking about God as his inspiration.
He will also release a Christian based single in November called Pray.
Paramount is also handing out a religious discussion guide with the film, which says the movie "provides an opportunity to teach our children about the power of hope, prayer, faith and family."
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never premieres in theaters this Friday.
Check out the trailer for the new adaptation of the classic English novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The novel was first published in 1847 under the name Currer Bell.
The film follows the tale of a young girl, Jane Eyre (Mia Wasikowska) who is cast aside all her life and forced to go to a boarding school.
She leaves the school to become a governess at an old estate to Mr. Rochester (Michael Fassbender), but soon discovers he is hiding a dark secret.
The adaptation also stars Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax.
The film is set to hit theaters on March 11, 2011.
Annette Benning and Morgan Freeman have both signed on the Rob Reiner directed drama The Third Act. Voltage Pictures announced it plans on financing and selling the international rights for the drama.
The film tells the story of a former western writer (Freeman) who tries to rediscover his talent in a small rural town. In the process, he helps a young girl find her own inspiration and helps the girl's mother (Bening) find love.
Reiner has worked with both Bening and Freeman in the past. He last worked with Bening in The American President, and with Freeman in The Bucket List.
This is Bening's first film since her Academy Award winning performance in The Kids Are All Right.
The film is scheduled to start filing in May.
Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for the new film Arthur starring Russell Brand. The film is a remake of the 1988 film of the same name, featuring Dudley Moore in the iconic role.
Check out the trailer below!
Arthur follows the story of a rich playboy who is the heir to a huge fortune, but he only gets the money if he marries Susan Johnson. He doesn't love Susan, but agrees to marry her. Things get complicated when Arthur falls in love with poor waitress, Linda Marolla.
The films stars Brand as Arthur, Jennifer Garner as Susan Johnson, Greta Gerwig as Linda Marolla, and Helen Mirren as Hobson.
Arthur is set to hit theaters on April 8, 2011.
The long-awaited trailer for Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil is finally here! The Weinstein Co. just released the first look at the new film coming out on April 29, 2011.
Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil follows Red Riding Hood and the Wolf as they set off to find out what happened to Hansel and Gretel who have suddenly disappeared.
The original Hoodwinked was released in 2005, so it's been quite a long time since the last one came out.
The animated flick features the voices of Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, Patrick Warburton, Joan Cusak, Amy Poehler, and Bill Hader.
Looks like James Franco has a casual attitude toward his Oscar hosting gig and isn't letting the pressure build.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair "Screening Room", Oscar co-host James Franco says he's not too worried about the big night.
He's keeping the pressure at a minimum saying, "If it's the worst Oscars show ever, who cares? It's like, it's fine. It's one night."
He also gives some insight into an early conversation he had with co-host Anne Hathaway, saying he never gave them extremely high expectations.
"They know we're not Billy Crystal or Chris Rock," Franco explains. "They're not asking us because they're expecting that. The show is going to be designed for what we can do."
Franco and Hathaway will be co-hosting the Academy Awards live on February 27, 2011. The ceremony will also be broadcast live on ABC starting at 8 E.T.
Check out the full interview after the jump.
The Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston comedy Just Go With It is getting mostly negative early reviews. Critics don't like the standard rom com that produces absolutely no originality or interesting plot lines. The comedy mostly depends on cliches and a highly unlikely story.
Check out what critics are saying below.
"The curse strikes again in "Just Go With It," a witless rom-com that is only marginally watchable thanks to Aniston and her costar, Adam Sandler." - New York Daily News
"At its best, Just Go With It suggests what might have been a super silly love story that messed with convention to clever effect: A poignant, pop-song montage of our two lead characters pining for each other privately cuts unexpectedly to include a third party, and a quiet, gross-out interlude." - MovieLine
Earlier in the day, fans were outraged that Fox had promised to put the trailer up, but it still wasn't up by 4:00 EST. Fans created threads on the page complaining about the lack of trailer.
Check it out!
X-Men: First Class follows the X-Men as they start to develop their powers for the first time. Before Professor X, he was Charles Xavier and before Magneto, he was Eric Lehnsherr - and they were best friends, not moral enemies.
A grave situation puts them at odds with one another and so starts the battle between the two X-Men groups.
It film, directed by Matthew Vaughn stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, and Kevin Bacon
Four films coming out in wide-release this weekend, which should result in the biggest box office weekend of 2011. Lots to choose from for Valentine's Day - action, rom-com, performance documentary, and even one for the kids.
Box office analyst predict Just Go With It will take the top spot this weekend, but Bieber may surprise with his growing fan base and very positive reviews. Box office analysts are having a difficult time figuring out how the film will do outside of Bieber's devoted girl fan base.
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never - The trials and tribulations of sixteen year-old pop star Justin Bieber are examined in this 3-D documentary biopic and performance piece chronicling his early years and rise to fame. Bieber is causing heart palpitations in many young girls and the film has already caused a frenzy among this target audience.
Just Go With It - Danny lands women by pretending to be in a loveless marriage - no strings attached to a married man. When he gets caught in his scheme, he asks his office manager to pretend to be his ex-wife in order to land the girl of his dreams. The film stars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston as the "estranged" couple.
The Eagle - Channing Tatum stars in this action-adventure flick that follows a young Roman soldier in Roman-ruled Britain as he endeavors to honor his father's memory by finding his lost legion's golden emblem.
Gnomeo and Juliet - James McAvoy and Emily Blunt lend their voice talent to this animated flick from Touchstone Pictures. Gnomeo and Juliet tells the classic tale of forbidden love... with Gnomes! The classic Shakespearian drama gets an animated twist with this hilarious version.
Cruise is set to play Stacee Jaxx - a '80s rocker at the pinnacle of his career.
Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand have also been exploring the possibility of starring in the movie-musical, directed by Adam Shankman.
No word on where they are in the negotiation process.
Check out Kevin Fraser's on set interview.
The Hangover 2, directed by Todd Phillips, find the guys in Bangkok for Stu's wedding. Intent on avoiding the same mishaps that happened in Vegas, Stu decides to go for a simple pre-wedding brunch. But we know with these guys, things will definitely NOT go as planned.
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha all return for the hilarious sequel, due out in theaters on May 26, 2011.
Ryan Gosling may be appearing in the Warner Bros. adapatation of the 1967 sci-fi novel Logan's Run by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson.
Deadline is reporting the sexy Blue Valentine star is set to appear as Logan 5 in the film, directed by Nicholas Winding Refn.
The film follows a "sandman" who hunts down "runners" - people who don't want to turn themselves in when they're 21 (in the novel) to be removed from society.
The novel was originally adapted into a film in 1976, starring Michael York, as the Sandman. It was also turned into a television spinoff.
Gosling is set to next star in The Ides of March, directed by George Clooney.
If you miss Rachel on Friends, you're going to like watching Aniston in Just Go With It, as she 100% channels her Rachel character - and this time, it works.
Aniston plays Katherine, a single mom, who is a receptionist/assistant for successful plastic surgeon, Danny (Sandler). After Danny gets heart broken on his wedding days years earlier, he pretends to be an unhappy married man in order to get women to sleep with him. He finally finds a girl (supermodel Brooklyn Decker) he wants to be with - but runs into a little problem when she finds his fake wedding band.
Sandler enlists his dowdy (yeah...right) assistant Katherine to pretend to be his ex-wife - but first she needs a makeover (like any of us believe Aniston would ever need a makeover). Anyway, she comes out looking all fresh and Aniston-like to meet the new young romantic interest, but makes the mistake of mentioning her kids (played by Bailee Madison and Griffin Gluck) - so now, Danny has a fake wife and fake kids.
The lies become more confused when the unlikely group - fake ex-wife, fake kids, new girlfriend, fake new boyfriend, and Danny - all go to Hawaii on a big awkward family vacation.
Things are complicated even more when, in Hawaii, Katherine runs into her old college enemy, Devlin (played by Nicole Kidman), who's name Katherine is using as Danny fake wife (still with me?) and Katherine actually pretends to still be married to Danny. This subplot is funny and provides a nice break from the whole "hot fake ex-wife meet hot new girlfriend," which can only carry the film for so long.
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler both play their stereotypical roles, not taking any chances of expanding their acting repertoire with this one. Sandler always plays the same role and sometimes it work, sometimes it doesn't. This time, it doesn't.
His mumbling, self deprecating moments that have made him so popular with fans, are everywhere in this film, but they just weren't funny enough to make it believable that both women would be so enchanted by this man.
The real shining star is Aniston who can't seem to expand her talents beyond cheesy rom coms, but she offered a breath of fresh air to what could have been an even staler flick.
Bailee Madison, who plays Aniston daughter, is also a fresh face and produces quite a few of her own scene-stealing moments.
It's actually completely unbelievable that awkward, sometimes funny, Adam Sandler would have so many gorgeous women falling all over him at one time. Just sayin'.
Decker is very easy on the eyes and director Dennis Dugan wastes no time flaunting her assets. Most of her scenes involve standing around and looking pretty, although she does deliver a few believable lines.
Dugan also seems to love poop - or else someone in control (perhaps Sandler) loves poop. Warning: this film talks a lot about poop, jokes about poop, and even makes up a code word for poop.
Overall, the film provides quite a few funny moments in a rather unrealistic and outrageous storyline. If you are a Sandler fan and you love all his past films, you will also love this one - because it's exactly the same. If you love Aniston, you will love this film. Other than that, the storyline and characters themselves don't bring it home.
I must admit, I went into Justin Bieber: Never Say Never an adamant non-fan of the young singer, and although I'm not going to go out and buy all his albums and join in the rampage of screaming tweens at his concerts, I'm inspired by the young man. Justin Bieber never said never and it shows.
His hard work and determination is impressive for anyone, let alone a 16-year-old teenager, who started promoting his stuff at the tender age of twelve.
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never is a music documentary about Bieber's rise to fame. He has broken many records and has done more in the short year and a half he's been on the pop scene than some musicians accomplish their entire career.
The documentary, from director John Chu, is smartly filmed and edited together - including scenes from Justin's childhood in Stratford, Ontario, and ending with the iconic sold out show at Madison Square Gardens in NYC.
Anyone who thinks Bieber is another smartly marketed Disney manufactured star is sorely mistaken. Bieber did most of the leg work himself and he's an example of what hard work and determination can bring to a young career.
The documentary explores many intriguing aspects to Bieber's career, including his entourage who try to keep his childhood intact - his vocal coach who acts like a second mother, his manager Scooter Braun who discovered him, his own mother who doesn't leave his side while on tour, and his grandparents who helped raise him and keep him grounded throughout the whole process. It's clear Bieber has a great team behind him that have become family.
There are some great scenes with his family and friends in Stratford as well. He's depicted as a normal kid who likes to have fun and play with friends. Only difference -- he's not a normal kid. He's a star.
During one outing in his hometown, he even stops to talk to a young girl playing her violin outside the Avon Theater, the same theater Justin played outside when he was twelve. The girl sweetly asks, "Are you Justin Bieber?" to which Bieber replied "Yes I am," rendering the girl speechless. He encourages her to never give up and follow her dreams. Just one of the sweet moments in the film.
The most amazing part of the whole journey is seeing how naturally gifted Justin Bieber really is - he receives a drum set when he's only three years old and can tap out a rhythm better than most adults. He plays piano, guitar, and drums: learning simply by watching his mother's friends. The true talent in this boy is clear and the film displays this well.
Overall, the film makes Bieber look like an awesome, albeit confident and even (at times) cocky, kid who works hard. He's good. And he knows it. But not in a bad way. You have to know your good to have the drive and resilience this young man displays. And he worked for his fame.
The most annoying part of the whole film isn't Bieber's incessant hair flicking or his sickeningly catchy lyrics - it's the painfully awful screams of his young female fans.
I actually feel sorry for the guy who wants to make music and entertain, but has to deal with the shameless groping and crying of these young tweens. Gracious as always, Bieber doesn't seem to mind at all.
I know this is not a new phenomenon and girls acted likewise in the '60s when The Beatles reigned the pop world, but it's just so hard to watch.
Bieber has hearts. He's definitely aware of the effect he have on his fans and makes sure to give back, distributing tickets for the first 10 rows before each concert.
The movie ends with a zooming out of the camera, displaying the YouTube page that made him famous, with the video titled "Justin Bieber Part 1." An accurate description for this star who seems to have a lengthy career ahead of him.
Let's just hope he stays grounded throughout the process. If you are a fan of Bieber you will love this film. IF you're not a fan of Bieber, I guarantee you will come out of the documentary with a greater appreciation for the young musician.
Apparently, director Timur Bekmambetov has decided to go with lesser-known actors for his new film.
We previously reporter Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to play Henry Sturges in the film, but that's no longer happening.
According to the mag, Fox is in final negotiations with Cooper to play Henry Sturges opposite Benjamin Walker, who was cast as Abraham Lincoln last month.
Sturges trains Lincoln to be a vampire hunter extraordinaire in the new film that takes on a very interesting rendition of what really happened during the civil war - brace yourselves... it involved vampires.
No word on an official release date yet.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts gave out its Orange Awards last night and, as expected, The King's Speech dominated with seven Oranges. The BAFTA's, Britain's equivalent to the Academy Awards, were handed out Saturday, February 13 at the Royal Opera House in London.
The King's Speech is one of the favorites to bring home Best Picture at the Oscars later this month and, if the BAFTA's are any kind of predictor, it will sweep the American version of movie's biggest night.
Not surprisingly, the film won the Orange for Best Picture and Best Lead Actor, Colin Firth. Surprisingly, Tom Hooper did not win Best Director - that honor went to The Social Network director David Fincher.
Expect there to be a few surprises at the Oscars later this month as well.
Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter also beat out Oscar favorites Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (The Fighter) to take home the Orange for their work in The King's Speech.
Check out the full list of winners after the jump.
Seeing as it is a British award show, it's no surprise that The King's Speech swept the awards. But this is one of the final award shows before Hollywood's biggest night, so will the film keep up its momentum?
The Harry Potter franchise took home the special award of the night for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. Emma Watson and J.K Rowling were just two on hand to represent the films for the special award.
But it wasn't all about the British films on Saturday night, The Social Network, Black Swan, and True Grit all took home some hardware as well.
Here is the list of winners. Click here for the full list of nominees.
Conspiracy theories and horror abound in the new trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman's (Saw 2, 3, 4) latest horror flick 11-11-11. The film made its premiere at the European Film Market in Berlin this week and now we have our first official peek at it.
11-11-11 focuses on the belief at at 11:11 on November 11, 2011, the 11 gates of Heaven will open (whew...that's a lot of 11's) for 49 minutes. The film focuses on the conspiracy theory that the number 11 has a huge significance in historical events and it is the number in people's lives when angels or spirits try go communicate with the living.
The film will be fittingly releases on November 11, 2011 - we didn't see that one coming.
Are you excited to see the conspiracy come to life on the big screen?
