Nick Fury Forever / More Remake BS

Good news for all those who think Samuel L. Jackson was born to play Nick Fury!

Jackson just signed a deal with Marvel Studios to play Fury in NINE films!

Of course, those nine films include Marvel's next four films (Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers), sequels to those films, and a possible Nick Fury solo film.

In recent article about the Oscars, my hero, Kevin Smith, said that by 2019, Hollywood will have remade everything.

Here's the latest remake BS.

Today, it was announced that they're doing a remake of the Arnold Schwarznegger classic Total Recall!

They tell us the remake is going to be more contemporary, with state-of-the-art CGI effects.

This...is not needed. I have fond memories of Total Recall. It's one of the most over-the-top, ridiculous action films ever made. Much like when I blogged about Adventures in Babysitting a few days ago, I always see it in the discount bin, but I never have the $5 to buy it.

But that's not all! Remakes are the big thing right now...so are fantasy films, thanks to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. So it was just a matter of time until they started remaking fantasy films.

They're also remaking The NeverEnding Story.

They promise us that the new movie version will be much more faithful to the original novel.
