    Here I thought studios were giving up on cinematic universe and then they go and try to start one around Predator.

    The concept does lend itself to all sorts of locations and timeframes, to be fair. If this one is as good as Prey, I’m very much on board.

    Question about JP: At what point does the original become meta text?

    Another series set in the world of Sherlock Holmes has been ordered. The CW is making Sherlock & Daughter, with David Thewlis as Holmes. Dougray Scott is Moriarty.

    You'd need Jared Leto for that.

    The Dead Zone and American Psycho are getting remade. Only in this Dead Zone, when the presidential candidate does something cowardly that puts other lives in danger, his supporters double down on how he's the second coming of Jesus.

    That original ending now looks so quaint

    First look at the new version of The Crow, with Bill Skaarsgard looking pretty unrecognisable. They’ve quite impressively managed to make him look consistent with the comic’s version of Eric but very distinct from Brandon Lee’s version. I was quite obsessed with the original for a period in my early 20s and once was very protective of the idea of any remaking it, but I’m somewhat intrigued to see what this take is like and pleased to see much respect for Lee from the makers

    Also - as I didn’t want to be the third consecutive post - Guy Ritchie is to direct a spinoff from Ray Donovan, written by Ronan Bennett. Not a combination I would’ve expected.

    Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Going to be R-rated but looks really cheap.
