Movie News: 'Fatal Attraction' Ready to Reboot ... on TV; Watch the Action-Packed 'Transporter Refueled' Trailer

Jul 02, 2015

Fatal Attraction

Fatal Attraction: Back in 1987, Fatal Attraction captured the zeitgeist of the nation, as cheating husband Michael Douglas pays a heavy price when he has a one-night stand with Glenn Close, who declares, "I'm not gonna be ignored." Adrian Lyne's thriller will now be transformed into an "event series" by Mad Men veterans Maria and Andre Jacquemetton, who will write and produce a new version for television that will once again explore the consequences of adultery. Maybe this time the rabbit lives? [Deadline]


Birdman / Whiplash

Kong: Skull Island: Sad to say, Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons have both departed Kong: Skull Island, a prequel set on the island where King Kong lives amidst an army of dinosaurs. Reportedly, it's because the production start date was pushed back, creating scheduling conflicts for the actors. The good news is that Tom Hiddleston and Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) are still set to star and direct, respectively; the movie is scheduled for release on March 10, 2017. [Deadline]


Andrew Niccol

Monopoly: A movie version of the classic board game Monopoly is once again moving forward, this time with Andrew Niccol (above), best known for Gattaca, signed up to write the screenplay. The producers are aiming to make "a film for all ages, visually sumptuous, heartwarming, and full of action and adventure," following a boy who goes on a quest to make a fortune, presumably passing "Go" and collecting $200 many, many times.

The Transporter Refueled

The Transporter Refueled Trailer: Ed Skrein replaces Jason Statham as Frank Martin in The Transporter Refueled, but fans of the series should be pleased that a new trailer is just as filled with action sequences as previous installments. Ray Stevenson also stars as Frank's father, who figures into the plot when some bad guys get desperate. The movie will race into theaters on September 4. [MovieClips]
