Trailers: The "King Kong" (remake, of course) trailer is here, and we’d like to point out that Adrien Brody should really only be allowed to act in period pieces like this â€” not a modern-looking man, that one. The "Fun with Dick and Jane" (remake) trailer is here. And the "Elizabethtown" (not a remake, but, ugh, looking eerily similar to this) trailer is here, and…eh. Orlando Bloom, while lovely, is not the young John Cusack into which Cameron Crowe is clearly attempting to mold him.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Andrea Berloff is writing the screenplay for a remake of "Don’t Look Now." Via Empire, Jennifer Garner is set to star in a remake of Japanese supernaturalish romance "Be With You." Also from Empire, Brian De Palma has apparently signed on to replace Antoine Fuqua as director of "The Untouchables: Capone Rising," a prequel to "The Bonfire of the Vanities" (we kid). And via the Sydney Morning Herald, Cate Blanchett will reprise her role as the Virgin Queen in a sequel to 1998’s "Elizabeth," with Clive Owen on board as Sir Walter Raleigh.
