Remakes

Gilmore Girls alumni Lauren Graham has decided that Wes Craven's upcoming "Scream 4" is no longer something she's interested in. Actress Lake Bell also left the project last week, leaving me to wonder what the hell is wrong with this movie.

In remake knews, more details are starting to emerge about the forthcoming "It" remake, a project I'm particularly excited about. Although I might be crucified for saying as much, the original really isn't that scary, and the material could certainly use an update. Let the flames begin.

Because the entire world wants it, Sony Stage 6 is preparing to shoot "Hostel: Part III" this August. The feature will be directed by Scott Spiegel, the man responsible for the grossly underrated slasher "Intruder". I'm sure you're as excited as everyone else about this project.

It's about to get CRAZY in here!

In worrisome news, the upcoming "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake is heading back under the lens for re-shoots after recent test screenings. So far it looks like it will only affect a small diner scene that doesn't involve Freddy, but re-shoots are never a good sign.

The fourth installment for the "Resident Evil" franchise, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" has been pushed back to January 2011. If you're curious for behind the scenes action on this 3D sequel, be sure to follow Milla Jovovich on Twitter as she tweets her way through the shooting of the film.

Good news for you "Dexter" fans; thanks in large part to John Lithgow, the fourth season of the show continues to set records for Showtime. This past Sunday's episode pulled in over 2.1 million viewers. You can pretty much count on our favorite little sociopath coming back next season.

From the laugh out loud news desk, Brittany Murphy has been fired from the upcoming thriller "The Caller", mere days into shooting. She's now officially been replaced by "Twilight" vixen Rachelle LeFevre.

We can finally put to rest one worry about the upcoming "Wolfman", asthe MPAA has officially given the movie an R rating for bloody horror, violence and gore!
