The Black Hole

The Black Hole: Disney’s remake of 1979’s The Black Hole is moving forward. Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Oblivion) is already on board as director, and now Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) has been hired to craft a new screenplay. The original was an expensive, turgid bomb, though it had certain goofy elements that made it memorable, but the remake is said to be more philosophical and “somewhat dark in tone.” [Heat Vision]

Fast & Furious 7: Sometimes, haste makes waste. Director Justin Lin, who has steered the Fast & Furious franchise for the past four installments, has bowed out of Fast & Furious 7. Universal Pictures wants the sequel to be ready for release next summer; Lin is still guiding Fast & Furious 6 through postproduction for its May 24 release date, and the schedule is just too tight for him to be comfortable with it.

The Candy Store: An amazing array of stars were rumored for Stephen Gaghan’s upcomng crime thriller The Candy Store, but the two leads have finally been locked. Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Omar Sy (The Intouchables, X-Men: Days of Future Past) will play a former covert operative and a big-time pimp, respectively, in the Brooklyn-set film.

Carrie Trailer: Set for release on October 18, Kimberly Pierce’s Carrie is said to be a new version of Stephen King’s best-selling novel, rather than a remake of Brian De Palma’s film. The first theatrical trailer certainly looks familiar, but has a distinctly different vibe. Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore star. [Yahoo! Movies]
