Last year we found out that a TV series based on the hit Japanese anime Cowboy Bebop was being developed. Now that adaptation has found itself a home.
It’s been announced that the series will be coming to Netflix, a co-production between the streaming service and Tomorrow Studios. You can find more information on the project and who’s involved below.
Another ’80s movie is set to get remade. This time it’s 1985’s Explorers, a movie that starred River Phoenix, Ethan Hawke, and Jason Presson as a trio of friends who build a real spacecraft. The original was made by Gremlins and The Howling director Joe Dante.
The remake is through Insurge, a low-budget arm of Paramount Pictures, with Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec producing.
It’s been almost two years since we reported that Michael Bay would be partnering with Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon to produce a new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie through his Platinum Dunes production company and that Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway would be writing the screenplay with an eye towards turning the movie into a franchise.
Now comes the news that Jonathan Liebesman, the director of last year’s Battle: Los Angeles and the upcoming Wrath of the Titans, is in talks to direct the reboot.
