Cranking up the remake cycle even faster, speculation abounds on who’ll be cast as the female lead in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake. Rumors include Ellen Page and Natalie Portman so far. Daniel Craig has already signed on, stretching his acting chops by playing a taciturn investigator who enjoys many romantic affairs. Meanwhile, if you can’t wait two years for a hit remake of a Swedish movie to storm American theaters, you’ll love Let Me In, the American remake of Let The Right One In (Låt den rätte komma in). It stars Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass‘s Hit Girl) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road‘s “The Boy”). If you can’t do something nice, do something derivative, my mom always used to say. In her best Ethel Merman impression.
If you like murder ballads, you’ll love this news: Nick Cave has been brought on to rewrite the upcoming Crow remake. Cave’s an accomplished musician and screenwriter, with several good credits to his name already. The Crow was about a guy who died, but came back to kill criminals. Which I guess Hollywood needs more of.
I would have posted the teaser trailer for Thor that got shown at Comic-Con, but it got taken down. So let’s talk about how great it would have been. Anthony Hopkins, right?
