The Hunt For The Fugitive Is Back On

Time to find that one-armed man again.

By Brandon Wolfe

1993’s The Fugitive, the big-screen adaptation of the ‘60s television series, stands as arguably the best TV-to-film adaptation of all time. Directed by Andrew Davis (who never went on to fully realize the promise he showed here), the film was a top-notch action-thriller, with a great turn by Harrison Ford as the hunted, wrongfully accused Dr. Richard Kimble and an Oscar-winning performance by Tommy Lee Jones as the dogged U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard. The film was one of the biggest hits of 1993 and was nominated for Best Picture. It also spawned a mediocre spin-off sequel about Gerard, 1998’s U.S. Marshals, and a hazily remembered TV revival in 2000.

And now, as is customary in our modern age, it’s time for The Fugitive to get back out there to chase down a couple of extra bucks as Warner Bros has commissioned a new installment of the venerable franchise. Original producers Arnold and Anne Kopelson are returning, and have hired Christina Hodson to write the script. There is no word on whether or not Ford or Jones would be involved, but that doesn’t seem likely. Ford has been game for any and all sequels lately, but it would be very difficult to plausibly get Kimble back on the lam, a dilemma that U.S. Marshals chose to sidestep entirely (and given how poorly received that film was, it’s unlikely Jones would want to make another return appearance, either). No, look for a new Kimble to hunt for another amputee in theaters soon, to vastly diminished results.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
