The Random - Total Recall remake, Suicide Squad, The Perfect Moment, Robin Hood, The Neverending Story, Arthur,

Eliza Dushku ("Buffy," "Dollhouse") is using her clout to bring The Perfect Moment, a biopic about iconic photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, to the big screen says Variety. The story will chronicle Mapplethorpe's career from his rise to fame in the 1970s for his portraits of socialites and rock stars until his death in 1989 at age 42 from complications arising from AIDS. Ondi Timoner ("DIG!") is to direct.

Cate Blanchett is officially onboard to play Maid Marian alongside Russell Crowe in the Ridley Scott-directed adventure feature Robin Hood (previously called Nottingham) for Universal Pictures reports the trades.

Warner Bros. Pictures, Kennedy/Marshall Co. and Leonard DiCaprio's Appian Way are all in discussions about reviving the 1980's kid fantasy classic The NeverEnding Story says The Hollywood Reporter.

Peter Baynham (Borat, Bruno, The Day Today) will pen the remake of Dudley Moore 1981 comedy Arthur for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety. The project is being crafted as a vehicle for Russell Brand ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall") as the boozy playboy whose plan to marry into a moneyed family goes awry when he falls in love with a working class gal.

Paul Verhoeven's 1990 sci-fi modern classic Total Recall is getting a remake for Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter. Neal H. Moritz and Original will develop and produce the contemporary version of the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stoen-led actioneer based a Philip K. Dick story.

Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Greyskull, Green Arrow: Supermax) will adapt the DC Comics property Suicide Squad as a feature film for Warner Bros. Pictures and Lin Pictures says the trades. Originally a back-up feature in 1960s "The Brave and the Bold," the stories focused on a team of non-super-powered people fighting monstrous menaces. The Squad was reconceived in the 1980s as a team of supervillains given one last shot at redemption by the government by accomplishing missions that will most likely kill them. This is the setup that Warners will work from. The villains involved have yet to be determined though Deadshot, an assassin with wrist-mounted guns, is a strong candidate.
