Remake Pile: November 2010

Peter Pan

Peter Pan will be making a comeback to the big screen, but this looks like it will be a dark and moody adaptation. According to Variety, the story will follow Captain Hook as a “haunted former police detective in pursuit of a childlike kidnapper.” The planned title for this remake is “Pan.”

Ben Hibon, who directed the animation sequence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, is set to direct.  Hibon’s previous directing credits include Codehunters and the video games Heavenly Sword and Killer 7.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The rights to Buffy the Vampire Slayer have been picked up by Warner Bros.

The original movie’s director, Fran Rubel Kuzui, is involved in the production of the reboot; while the creator of the televised Buffy, Joss Whedon, is apparently not involved.

The Hollywood Reporter quotes producer Charles Roven as saying that “while this is not your high school Buffy, she’ll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be.”

Is it just me, or does this look like it’s just a cash-in on the current vampire craze?

      I was thinking of giving it a rest for awhile, especially on movies that are so far away and have so little to go on.
