‘Total Recall’ Trailer Promises More of Everything; Jackie Chan Going Back Into Action

Jackie Chan

Chan in Action: Laying to rest to any lingering misunderstandings that he intended to retire from action films, Jackie Chan is lining up an English-language action comedy as a star vehicle for himself. As is usually the case with his non-Hollywood projects, Chan conceived the story; he’ll play a detective searching for a debt-skipping American gambler in Eastern Europe and Asia. Chan will produce the film; an American writer has been hired to pen the script. [Heat Vision]

Remake Hell: A planned remake of About Last Night..., a watered down, glossed up 1986 film adaptation of David Mamet’s 1974 bitingly nasty play Sexual Perversity in Chicago, has signed up its first cast member. Stand-up comic Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) will play the supporting role (the male lead’s best friend) originally essayed by Jim Belushi, but the remake doesn’t have the lead romantic couple set yet, much less a director.

Et Tu, Marty?: He experimented with digital 3D for the Academy Award-winning Hugo, and now veteran director Martin Scorsese is ready to stick with digital for his next picture rather than return to using 35mm film. His longtime editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, says: “I think Marty just feels it's unfortunately over, and there's been no bigger champion of film than him." The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, starts shooting in August, though it will be in 2D, not 3D, so that's minor consolotation for purists. [Empire]

Remember This: Due in August, the Total Recall remake, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, and Bill Nighy, has generated plenty of buzz. The new theatrical trailer promises more scenes that will be familiar to fans of the original, including a certain three-breasted woman. [Yahoo! Movies]
