Weird Science Image

Writer and actor Michael Bacall, who worked on the screenplays for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with Edgar Wright, found footage party flick Project X, and the movie remake of the ’80s TV series 21 Jump Street, has been hired to pen the script for Weird Science for Universal Pictures.

The movie will be a remake of the 1985 comedy of the same name written and directed by the late, great John Hughes, which starred Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith as a couple of nerds who accidentally create the perfect woman using a computer. What they end up with, however, is much more than they ever expected. The original also starred Kelly LeBrock, Bill Paxton, and Robert Downey Jr.

"Ghosts of the Abyss" Blu-ray coverDive into this week’s Disney In Depth, an exploration into the documentary Ghosts of the Abyss, cementing director James Cameron as a leader in the efforts to appreciate the misfortunate vessel known as Titanic. This is deep in more ways that one (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

This 2003 feature, released in IMAX 3D, finally pulls into port. Well, rather the Blu-ray 3D (and DVD) home release port. Narrated by and featuring actor Bill Paxton, best known for his roles in adventure films Apollo 13and Titanic, serves as the audience’s captain, so to speak, on Cameron’s mission to survey the whereabouts of the illustrious ship that submerged into the depths of the North Atlantic. Paxton, recruited by Cameron to join him on the expedition led by scientists, historians, and ocean explorers, boards the ship that will take him to the site of its sinking.

Twister

Bill Paxton has done a lot of work with James Cameron (The Terminator, Aliens, True Lies, Titanic), and because of this past, he’s very happy to see Cameron’s Avatar doing so well at the box office. The movie that had people nervous with its rumored record-breaking budget has made $380 million domestically and $757 million overseas, and was custom built for the new 3D technology that has swarmed theaters as of late. This three-dimensional revolution has caught the eye of Paxton, and it has his brain churning about the prospect of actually doing a sequel to his hit 1996 disaster film Twister using the format.

While doing an interview for his HBO show Big Love, Paxton was asked about his upcoming projects. Paxton went on to reveal his new found desire to revisit the world of storm chasing, and that he had already met with mega producer Kathleen Kennedy about the idea. He explained that he had recently gone on a trip to the Ozarks with friend and Twister colleague Scott Thomson, and that they followed the trail of one of the biggest tornadoes ever to touch down. The 1925 beast was estimated to measure one mile in width, and it traveled 219 miles while taking the lives of 700 people with it. It was in this historically devastating storm that Paxton found himself pondering the thought of a sequel and using the technology that is doing so well in Avatar.
