Back to the Future to be remade... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOby Max Nicholson, Source: IGN

Hurwitz and Schlossberg reveal their pipe dream franchise.

American Reunion directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have just inked a two-year deal with Universal. Now the question is, are there any other dormant franchises that the writer-director team are looking to tackle?

According to Moviehole, there is one Uni franchise that they’d like to resurrect — although they claim to be so terrified of screwing it up that it might just remain a pipe dream.

“We want Back to the Future, just come out and say it”, Hurwitz nudged Scholssberg into admitting. “That’s our favourite trilogy. We’re always having this conversation.” Continue reading

Grundy’s Web Pick of the Week: Rotten Tomatoes

Movies cost over $10 now. And that’s for 2-D flicks! A Hamilton may be a price that the market can bare, but not my wallet. Opportunity cost dictates that I must choose my films and the Grail Knight dictates that I must “choose wisely.” So wisely I shall choose with Rotten Tomatoes.

Disclaimer: isn’t exactly an obscure choice for a web pick. Most of you are probably familiar with the most popular movie review aggregation site on the ‘net. But, hey, if Hollywood has given up on being original, so can I. Continue reading
