Hollywood loves its unnecessary remakes, so it shouldn't be too surprising that they are looking at Pascal Laugeir's "Martyrs" for the official treatment. What is surprising is that "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey is looking at Kristin Stewart to headline.

Breck Eisner thrilled us all with his remake of "The Crazies" and is moving on to some non-horror related fare such as "Escape From New York" and "Flash Gordon".
