Cruella Devil Header

Disney’s live-action take on the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil has a director in sights.

It’s being reported that Craig Gillespie, director of the Academy Award winning I, Tonya and the 2011 Fright Night remake, has entered into negotiations to direct Cruella. The spinoff, which is similar to Disney’s villain-centric Sleeping Beauty spinoff Maleficent, is set to star Oscar winner Emma Stone in the title role.

Chris Pine is fine as a leading man. We have seen him captain a team in Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and the upcoming Star Trek Beyond. But his next film sees him something that is based on a story, and has him captaining a ship of a different kind. In The Finest Hours, the actor plays Bernie Webber, a man who rallies a team together to head straight into one of New England’s deadliest storms to save 30 stranded men aboard a sinking ship.

Check out the second trailer for the film below.

Fright NightFright Night
Directed by Craig Gillespie
Starring: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant, Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Release Date: August 19, 2011

Horror fans are well aware of the gloom associated with many remakes of well-known films, but despite this, I was pleasantly surprised with Craig Gillespie‘s take on Fright Night. The new film certainly pays tribute to the original film, but definitely brings it into the contemporary age, with a faster pace and some solid performances from the lead cast members.

Fright Night follows a great deal of the same plot elements as its original namesake. Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) begins to have a sneaking suspicion that his new neighbor, Jerry Dandrige (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. Brewster seeks the assistance of famous “vampire hunter” Peter Vincent (David Tennant) in the fight against Dandrige, to protect his mother, Jane Brewster (Toni Collette), and his girlfriend, Amy Peterson (Imogen Poots).

The principal strength of the remake is in the substantial performances from both David Tennant and Colin Farrell, and even Anton Yelchin puts in a very convincing role that truly makes you want to cheer on his character as the film heads to its climax. However, having said that, it is Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin!) who truly steals the show in his rendition of the character of “Evil” Ed Lee. In the original film, Ed was a lovable highlight who was depicted as a hilarious weirdo. Yet in the new movie, Mintz-Plasse brings the character into the 21st century, providing that “weirdo” element but adapted to his demeanor.

David Tennant

The remake of Fright Night is right around the corner, to be released on August 19, 2011, and stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, and David Tennant. With the countdown on, the studio has released some new international posters, focusing on the main characters, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

I’m looking forward to seeing this flick, but like I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, when it comes to remakes it always counts to be cautious. Best approach this one with a “not sure if want” attitude, folks.

Having said that, however, the trailers thus far have looked impressive; and in addition we get to see Doctor Who‘s David Tennant on the big screen again. I know there’s a lot of Who fans out there that are anticipating this film simply because of Tennant’s role – and it could potentially be a bit of a springboard for the actor into some future bigger roles.

Here’s hoping so, anyway. Enjoy the posters…

UPDATED: ‘Zombieland’ Star Emma Stone Replaces Natalie Portman In ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’

It seems like ages ago we found out that actress Natalie Portman and director David O. Russell had decided to walk away from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the movie adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith‘s twist on the classic Jane Austen novel…which of course adds the walking dead to the formal 19th century setting.

According to sources Lionsgate has now chosen their leading lady to replace Portman, formally offering the role to Emma Stone. Stone is of course best known from Zombieland and Easy A, and has also appeared in Superbad, The Rocker, The House Bunny, and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

Watch Now: David Tennant Appears In New ‘Fright Night’ Trailer

David Tennant

You know what? I was a little annoyed when the first trailers popped out for the upcoming remake of Fright Night. Don’t get me wrong – I like Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin… but being a Doctor Who fan, I really wanted a glimpse of David Tennant. The first trailer gave us less than a second of the former Doctor.

Well, finally, we have a new trailer – and this time we get a really nice glance at David Tennant’s role in the new Fright Night, as he plays Peter Vincent, the vampire-hunting actor/hero. And not only do we get a glance – Tennant clearly has claimed the Vincent role as his own.

Now, being a horror fan, I have high doubts about all remakes and reboots. Only a select few seem to meet expectations, but the look of the new Fright Night seems to show some promise. Either way, I’ll reserve judgment for when I get to see the flick. In the meantime, check out the new trailer here below of Fright Night – with MORE David Tennant – which first aired during the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.

Let’s kill something!

To great surprise, the movie actually looks very promising. The images that were released not too long ago certainly got people curious, but now that we have a real feel for how the remake was handled, it’s a lot easier to jump on one side or the other.

Personally, a lot of this movie hinges greatly on what rating it will get. Apart from that, color me intrigued. Be sure to click on over to the other side to read a synopsis and check out the brand new trailer and poster for Fright Night. Share your thoughts in the comments below!

The movie adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith‘s strange combination of zombies and Jane Austen‘s classic, Pride and Prejudice, has faced a few complications on its road to the silver screen…specifically when it came to finding a director for the job, which has failed twice now.

Perhaps a third time will be the charm; it’s being reported that Craig Gillespie has now been hired to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Gillespie has previously directed Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock, and episodes of The United States of Tara. His next movie will be the upcoming remake of the 1985 horror favorite, Fright Night, which stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, and Toni Collette.
