Wild Wid West

The Wild Bunch: Hold your horses -- Will Smith is in talks to produce and star in a remake of Sam Peckinpah's immortal, bloody 1969 Western The Wild Bunch. The new, modern-day version "is expected to follow a disgraced D.E.A. agent who assembles a team to go after a Mexican drug lord and his fortune." A new writer is being sought for the project; veteran Jerry Weintraub (Smith's Karate Kid remake) is producing what we hope will be a better Western than Smith's woeful Wild Wild West. [The Wrap]

Into the Woods: Following in the footsteps of original Captain Kirk William Shatner, Chris Pine, who plays James T. Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness, is considering a foray into music. He is said to be "circling" the film version of Into the Woods, based on Stephen Sondheim's musical stage production; Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep are already set to star, and Rob Marshall will direct. Jake Gyllenhaal is "circling" another role in the movie, and both actors are said to have met -- and sang -- for Marshall. [The Hollywood Reporter]

About Time Trailer: Rachel McAdams, who previously played the titular character in The Time Traveler's Wife, returns to time-travel territory in About Time, directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually). She's the object of attraction for Domhnall Gleeson, who uses his gift of time travel to pop back and forth, tinkering with their relationship to try to get it right. The romantic comedy will be in theaters on November 1. [Yahoo! Movies]

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Trailer: OK, you can get excited now! The 30-second teaser for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. whet our appetite, and the full-length trailer delivers on its promise, featuring a new team that's been assembled to deal with new threats. Clark Gregg stars as Agent Phil Coulson; the show will debut on ABC this fall. [Hey U Guys UK]
