3 Rumoured Remakes and Reboots to Look Forward To in 2018 (or Beyond)

I think it’s not the first time – and not the second either – when you hear or read that Hollywood has descended into an age of reboots and remakes. To be honest, this often seems to be the case – movie franchises that many thought were forgotten are dug out by producers and directors and given new life on the silver screen. Sometimes, they work – Kong: Skull Island was pretty good, and Spider-Man: Homecoming and Stephen King’s IT were great, too – and sometimes they don’t. But there are some reboots and remakes that are intriguing enough for many to be excited about them. Some of them are in development hell, others are planned and rumoured only – but they all sound exciting enough for them to have every chance to become reality. Like the ones below.

Highlander

There can be only one! The performance of Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, and Clancy Brown in 1986’s cult classic “Highlander” will never be forgotten – not to mention the operatic rock soundtrack of the movie provided by the legendary hard rock band, Queen. None of the sequels – feature films and TV series – have managed to live up to the fame of the original (so far, that is). Highlander is unforgettable: just this year, Microgaming, one of the software providers for top casinos around the world, will surprise its players with a casual game based on the movie. And next year (or beyond), we might see a reboot of the franchise.

According to an article published by Collider back in January, Summit and Lionsgate have gotten serious about rebooting the Highlander franchise, approaching John Wick director Chad Stahelski with the idea. Needless to say, Stahelski is excited about making a Highlander movie. Hopefully, we’ll get to see it sooner rather than later.

Scarface

There’s no telling whether the planned remake of 1983’s classic mob flick Scarface starring Al Pacino is a good idea or not. The original was nominated for three Golden Globes and is one of the classic “must-see” mob flicks along with Godfather and Casino. The remake might be released next summer (or later).

Originally, David Ayer (Suicide Squad) was set to direct the movie but he left, leaving the spot vacant for the time being. What we know is that the script is written by the Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, Hail Caesar!), Jonathan Herman, and Terence Winter, and the title character will be played by Diego Luna, known for his roles in Flatliners, Rogue One, and Elysium.

The Crow

Romance, mystery, supernatural, and revenge are mixed up in a unique way in 1994’s The Crow, a cult classic that has robbed us of Brandon Lee. Attempts have repeatedly been made to continue the story, both in feature-length versions and on the small screen – to limited success. A remake of the movie has been planned for a long time, but it seemed to be hard to decide on the actor to play Eric Draven. After Luke Evans, Jack Huston, and several others, it now seems that Jason Momoa (Justice League) will take on the role. Corin Hardy (The Hallow) is set to direct.

Some say it is a good idea, others think that the franchise should be left alone. Whichever the case, both the director (Alex Proyas helmed the original) and the lead actor will have some really big shoes to fill.
