Quick Hits: 'Contagion' Trailer, Seventh 'Huntsman' Dwarf Cast, 'Godzilla' Remake Writer Hired

Total Recall

Head over to AICN to see a bunch of spy set photos from Len Wiseman's currently filming remake - or, more accurately, re-adaptation - of Philip K. Dick's Total Recall.  It's more Earth bound than Paul Verhoeven's film, but it still looks promising.

I've heard some very good things about Steven Soderbergh's pandemic film, Contagion, which is precisely why I trust everyone when they warn against watching the trailer for the film, which is apparently quite spoilery.  However, if you don't care about having some plot points spoiled, head over to Apple to check out the goods.

Shaun of the Dead's Nick Frost will be the seventh dwarf in Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman.  The other six are: Ian McShane, Tob Jones, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham and Ray Winstone.

Legendary Pictures must be pretty damned pleased with what David Goyer has done with his script for Man of Steel because they've just hired him to pen the screenplay for the Gareth Edwards-directed remake of Godzilla.  Of course his contributions to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy couldn't have hurt.

IFC Midnight has wisely acquired the North America rights to Undocumented, Chris Peckover's brutal horror movie about some college kids who set out to make a documentary about illegal immigrants crossing the border only to wind up abducted by some militia wackos in the process.  And though that premise sounds like it's yet another foud footage horror movie, it isn't.

David Heyman, who is the man responsible for bringing all of the Harry Potter books to the big screen, is in tentative talks to adapt the yet-to-be-published young fantasy series Night Circus from first time author Erin Morgenstern.  

It's so NSFW we can only show a cropped portion of it here, but head over to Bloody-Disgusting to see the poster for Lionsgate's Nurse 3D.
