I’m going to format these a little differently from now on, putting the links to other websites first and the news stories second, that way less good people get buried beneath mediocre news!

**The Rock is also Hercules in Brett Ratner’s Hercules!

**A remake of Romancing the Stone is a possibility. Because kids love a good Romancing the Stone flick…

**French action crime flick Point Blank is getting both a US and a Korean remake. The US version is rumored to be produced by Mark Wahlberg, while the Korean version will be directed by Juhn Jai-hong (a former protege of Kim Ki-duk)

**Speaking of Kim Ki-duk and his proteges, another one (Shin Yeon-shik) will be directing Rough Play, an action thriller Kim Ki-duk wrote and is producing. Boy band singer Lee Jun stars, he was also in Ninja Assassin. The plot deals with an actor who gets big overnight and the danger that entails.

**A Gremlins reboot is simmering once again.

And we’re outta here, until the next time we’re in here. Which will be soon.

Midnight Run 2

Midnight Run 2 is somehow greenlit and getting made, which is shocking because the original came out so long ago I had to look up how young I was. One thing is clear, the title sounds like it should have been a Direct-to-DVD entry around 2007 or so. But De Niro is back and producing, so at least we avoid the whole someone is the son of the character from the first film mess that happens a lot in these late sequels. David Elliot & Paul Lovett are rewriting the script, you might remember them from writing GI Joe (which was generic) and will soon remember them from Four Brothers 2. Yes, Four Brothers 2, which will be out soon as well. Also spoiler alert, Four Brothers 2 will need another fourth brother, or maybe it will just be called Three Brothers. Perhaps they can kill off a brother each film until no one is left alive.

Brett Ratner is in negotiations to direct Midnight Run 2 with his company co-producing. As this might be closer to his Rush Hour films than X-Men 3 or Tower Heist, maybe it is a good idea.

We do not know if Charles Grodin will be back, though the article says he is open to the idea. Grodin spends a lot of his time doing volunteer advocacy work now, which is awesome.
