Wednewsday 21st November

Image of the Week: Sam Raimi's horror classic, Evil Dead, is getting a remake. Thankfully, Raimi and original star Bruce Campbell are supervising. Sadly, the poster is straight-up serious and shows no indicator of the original's tongue-in-cheek dark humour.

Good News: Marc Webb is busy casting for The Amazing Spider-Man sequel with The Descendants' Shailene Woodley locked in for Mary Jane and the search hotting up for Harry Osborn (son of Spidey arch-nemesis Norman Osborn AKA The Green Goblin). Currently, rumours indicate Chronicle's Dane DeHaan.

Bad News: another franchise-milking Mission Impossible film is on the cards after last year's Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise appears to be favouring his Jack Reacher writer/director Chris McQuarrie to take the helm.

Mad News: Universal seem determined to turn primitive computer game, Asteroids, into a feature film. Screenwriter Matthew Lopez failed to put anything to paper back in 2009 and now Jez Butterworth has been hired to tackle the Atari classic. It's time for Universal to give this one up.

Trailer News: the second trailer for Epic is below. It appears to be a weird mix of Avatar and Ferngully. At least the animation is stunning.
