Everything old is new again –but why?Hollywood has been cranking out reboots, revivals, sequels and spinoffs this year on both the big and small screens, although with some of them we’re not sure who asked.
Of course, coronavirus has thrown a wrench in productions left and right, so it could be a minute before movie theaters get back up and running with blockbusters. In the meantime, here’s a list of the biggest movies set to make a comeback soon, whether we asked for it or not:
- “Dirty Dancing” –Jennifer Grey is confirmed to star in Lionsgate sequel, which is being called “one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood.”
- “Twister” – “Top Gun: Maverick” director Joseph Kosinski is set to this Universal Pictures reboot, but not much else is known about the new version of the 1996 blockbuster.
- “Scarface” –Luca Guadagnino is taking on the modern-set “Scarface” remake with a Coen brothers script, making him the fourth director to attempt the project.
- “Scream” – Both Courteney Cox and David Arquette will reprise their characters in a new “Scream” movie, directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet.
- “Legally Blonde 3” – Nearly two decades after we watched Elle Woods click down the halls of Harvard, Reese Witherspoon is making a comeback as the sorority girl-turned-lawyer with Mindy Kaling writing the screenplay.
- “Pinocchio” –Tom Hanks may reunite with “Forrest Gump” director Robert Zemeckis for the upcoming live-action remake, reportedly in talks to play Pinocchio’s creator, Geppetto.
- “Bill & Ted 3” – It’s been nearly 30 years since the second installment, and it’ll be a little longer until it hits theaters thanks to coronavirus, but Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are back as the comedy flick’s titular characters on September 1st!
