The Random - The Gate, Jack Ryan, Blitz, Midway Games

Alex Winter (Bill S Preston and director of Freaked) is going ahead with the remake of the Stephen Dorff film, The Gate. That's the one from the 1980's where the kids open a gateway to hell in the garden and little demon things come out to play. Bloody Disgusting had the news.

George Clooney would like to play Tom Clancy character, Jack Ryan, in a new film - “A source says he expressed interest in playing Jack Ryan when and if Paramount attempts to revive the Tom Clancy series.”

Jason Statham will play a sociopathic, destructive cop named Brant in the upcoming film adaptation of Ken Bruen's novel Blitz reports Crimespree Cinema. Set in South East London, the book follows three different police officers who must deal with their own issues alongside hunting down a serial killer hunting down cops all over the city in a quest for tabloid immortality. Paddy Considine will be playing Sergeant Porter Nash, an openly gay cop that works with the homophobic Brant. Nathan Parker ("Moon") adapted the script and Elliott Lester ("Love is a Drug") is directing.

Warner Bros. have got hold of many of Midway Games' assets in bankruptcy court for a cool $33 million, which includes studio rights to "Mortal Kombat," "Spy Hunter," "Joust" and several other game franchises, according to Variety.
