Great news for you business. Terrible news for those of us who detest reboots.

Of the Fantastic Four series? Oh c'mon, the last ones were awful. The only thing they got right was casting that dude from Nip/Tuck as Dr. Doom. I think a reboot is exactly what the franchise needs.

I agree.Other than Chris Nolan's first 2 Batman's (wasn't impressed with the third), I also detest reboots,especially when it comes to horror movies (Friday the 13th,Halloween,A Nightmare on Elm Street,Evil Dead,etc all sucked.).

This is fantastic news for me.My catering company is already started the "American Horror Story:Coven" catering gig and we are halfway done with catering "Hot Tub Time Machine 2".Hopefully when the FF reboot and POTC 5 does come down here,my company can snatch those catering contracts.
Sorry Canada,but your loss may be my gain.

Hey good on you. I just hope they get around to casting the damn thing. It's still a blank slate on imdb.

I was about to say the same thing. "Hot Tub Time Machine 2!?!?!! Sweet!" :lol:

I wonder which era they'll be going back to this time. The nineties, maybe?

According to IMDB, it looks like they've replaced John Cusack with Adam Scott (whom I like, but not as a Cusack replacement). No word as to the time period, though.

Yea... There's absolutely no way he can match Cusack in that role.

Cusack's more of a "beleaguered and eccentric everyman." Scott tends to play smarmy douchebags in most of the roles I've seen him in.

You should check him out in Party Down. He's definitely more beleaguered in that show, and he's playing a very sympathetic character; but he's still coming from a very sarcastic place (unlike Cusack in every movie ever). Also, Party Down is just hilarious across the board.

And Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The original is fantastic.

I, however, loved the Evil Dead remake.

I've not seen the Evil Dead remake. I am hesitant because the first is such a classic, and I hate it when reboots screw up the classics.

The biggest fans of the original are slightly divided, but more like it than not, from what I gather. The remake is not as goofy and fun, and relies more on the horrific shock aspect (which was also in the original, yes).

Personally, I like them both very much.

I will watch when it comes out on Redbox. With any movie that I'm on the fence about, I'll wait 'til Redbox, just so I don't blow money at the theater.

Seems practical!
