Agast! Hollywood May Remake The Wild Bunch.

Hollywood is gearing up to remake Sam Peckinpah’s seminal western epic The Wild Bunch, (our reaction to this news here). Apparently the success of the Cohen’s Brother’s recent release True Grit, which netted $129M at the box office, has given this proposal real legs after it had sat dormant for so long. No confirmed word yet on any casting or directing duties as it seems Warner Brothers are only toying with the notion at this stage, but even that doesn’t bode well.

Movie website Slashfilm have all the gory details surrounding this horrific idea along with information on the reboot of the Lethal Weapon franchise, (without the return of Adolf and Glover), and a possible remake of Westworld, which we are already betting will star Will Smith.

Snipes To Celebrate Christmas In The Slammer

Hollywood star Wesley Snipes, best known for appearing in films which are usually a crock of shite quite popular with the movie going public is to start a three year prison sentence on December 9. The actor has been free on bail since he was convicted of tax evasion back in 2008 and has been trying all this time to overturn the charge, but his appeal has been ignored. Apparently Snipes didn’t pay taxes on the $38 million dollars he was reported to have earned.

U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges, who ordered Snipes to start serving his sentence on Dec 9 wrote: “The Defendant Snipes had a fair trial … The time has come for the judgment to be enforced” At which point Snipes jumped up onto his desk, threw open his leather overcoat, produced a shiny samurai sword and growled: “You can put a cat in an oven. But that don’t make it a biscuit” before beheading the Florida judge.
