"Variety reports that Patrick Hughes is in final negotiations to take the helm of The Raid remake from a script by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace). The original pic finds an elite Indonesian S.W.A.T. raiding a gangster-ridden building, facing tough opposition as they climb floor-by-floor. Evans’ film and its upcoming sequel The Raid 2 are both very heavy on martial arts, favoring unique and intense fighting styles over explosions and gunplay, so it’ll be interesting to see how Hughes approaches the action in this remake."
One other small detail: According to The Wrap, the studio wants Chris and Liam Hemsworth to star in the movie! Something tells me that there will be less emphasis on martial arts in this one...
We also have some Skintrade photos:
Popwatch reports that the Rocky on Broadway show is being well received:
"And two new movie-based musicals are generating very different reactions from audiences in previews. The Bridges of Madison County, opening this week, will need strong reviews to boost its current sales — last week it grossed $348,594, or about 35 percent of its potential. Meanwhile, the unlikely musical version of the Sylvester Stallone classic Rocky knocked down $373,672 from its first three performances — an encouraging number that’s about two-thirds of the potential earnings for the Winter Garden Theatre. (The show officially opens March 13.)"
Lastly today we have some fan made posters.
