The news no one wanted to hear as fans have been dying for a sequel Warner Brothers thought it would be best to throw a remake in there of the 1999 original. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros early stages of developing a rebooted version with Michael B. Jordan as the potential headliner. Yes the guy from Creed.
THR also claim that Zak Penn is in talks to write the script treatment after working on such films as X-Men: The Last Stand and The Avengers.
There is no set-date for production so there is hope that it could still be cancelled but for god sake, get some original ideas and show us something new. I even heard today The Fly was getting a remake. Like seriously, fuck off.
