Although the recent English-language remake of The Secret in Their Eyes didn’t make much of an impression on critics or audiences, Sony is still determined to Americanize another critically-acclaimed, Oscar-nominated foreign film. Hopefully the studio’s plans for A Prophet work out a little better, and with Sam Raimi now on board to direct from a screenplay by master of crime Dennis Lehane, we are feeling…cautiously optimistic about this one.

If there’s one thing the Evil Dead franchise has taught us, it’s to be wary of things that look too good to be true. The zombies in this series love to disguise themselves as the reanimated friends and family of the film’s heroes. And then, when the good guys let their guard down, the monsters strike.

Ecstatic altogether though we are to have ol’ Groovy Bruce back in the saddle for Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead, one can’t help wonder if Ash might cross paths with the rebooted Evil Dead world. We’ve heard Sam Raimi say as much before, but are Ash and Mia going to be vs.-ing the Evil Dead any time soon?

For decades, Evil Dead lovers have begged, pleaded, and pestered director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell for another movie.

Initial word of an NBC Xena reboot was met with skepticism from original star Lucy Lawless, only to turn around and confirm that the network had at least considered the idea. Now NBC brass says writing staff for the reboot have been courted, though Lucy Lawless’ actual involvement might require a surprising condition.
