- The Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber & There’s Something About Mary) are bringing The Three Stooges back to the big screen. Odd cast choices though – Sean Penn is set to play Larry, Benicio Del Toro is currently in talks to play Moe and Jim Carrey is going to put on weight to play Curly.
- Based on the classic children’s story, Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) has released a trailer for his Where the Wild Things Are. I think this looks wonderful:
- Anthony Hopkins is back on biopic duty again. This time he’ll be getting his teeth into the role of Ernest Hemmingway in the story of the author’s life.
- The plot for the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street has an interesting spin on the original tale. As before, 18 years after being burned alive by a mob of angry parents, a pre-school caretaker named Freddy Krueger returns for revenge against the children, that accused him of sexual abuse. The twist lies in the idea that Freddy may have been innocent of the crimes of which he was accused.
- I love the Ice Age movies and the third, Dawn of the Dinosaurs, will be in 3D. Check out the trailer:
