Say hello to another remake. Who remakes Scarface?? Well, thankfully it’s Joel and Ethan Coen. They’ve written the screenplay – a story that will reportedly be set in Los Angeles.
Filmmaker Luca Guadagnino has signed on to direct Universal’s remake of Scarface. Whether or not it should be made in the first place is debatable.
This is the third time we’ve seen Scarface – did you know it was originally Howard Hawks’ Chicago-set original in 1932? The one we know, is Brian De Palma’s Miami-set remake in 1983 starring Al Pacino.
What do you think about the idea of remaking Scarface, again?
Great news Muse fans! Singer Matt Bellamy recently did an interview with NME and told them that the band might move back to their small hometown of Teignmouth in Devon to write their next album. Key words: New. Album.
Muse formed in Teignmouth in 1994 – 5 years later they released their debut album ‘Showbiz’. Now, Bellamy, drummer Dom Howard and bassist Chris Wolstenholme are heading home to follow up their 2018 album “Simulation Theory”.
Bellamy told NME, “I like the idea of totally resetting and going back to where we come from. As in, physically moving back to our hometown [Teignmouth, Devon] and getting back to how we used to be at square one. We’re likely to get in the studio next year to make a new album of some kind and then tour after that, depending on the travel restrictions.”
Meanwhile, Bellamy is also in a supergroup covers band called The Jaded Hearts with Miles Kane (singer of The Last Show Puppets), Nic Cester (Jet), Graham Coxon (Blur), Jamie Davis (Transcopic) and Sean Payne (The Zutons) and they plan to release an album soon!
Can’t wait to hear new Muse! Are they rock’s best power trio? If not, who is?
Netflix is up to it again! This time, Spike Lee takes you to Vietnam in his next movie Da 5 Bloods, premiering June 12th!
If the above trailer (set to The Chamber Brothers’ signature 1967 single “Time Has Come Today”) doesn’t make you wanna write the release date on a calendar, check your pulse. Lee has done a great job of intertwining archival footage from the Vietnam War with two parallel stories involving aging veterans! Great job.
The concept: Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. return to Vietnam in the present day to search for the remains of their fallen squad leader, played by Chadwick Boseman. But they’re also looking for buried treasure. What a great idea! That’s something you could believe might have actually happened during the war.
Da 5 Bloods also stars Mélanie Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, Jasper Pääkkönen, Johnny Trí Nguyễn, Van Veronica Ngo and Jean Reno.
This trailer looks incredible. What’s the best “Vietnam” movie all-time?
