License To Drive Remake On It's Way

There are often calls, whenever a remake is announced, for studios (if they must remake at all) to focus on films that aren't considered classics. 1988's Corey Haim/Corey Feldman comedy License To Drive, for all its nostalgia appeal, falls into that category. And now original producer John Davis is cooking up a new version – with a twist.

In keeping with some recent takes on movies (such as the Anna Faris-focused Overboard), the new License will feature female leads. Writers Alish Brophy and Scott Miles are aboard to develop the new concept, which will be a spin on the original.

The '80s License saw Haim as 16-year-old Les Anderson, desperate to get out on the road, but fails his driving test. Undeterred, he decides to take out girlfriend Mercedes Lane (Heather Graham) in his grandfather's prized 1972 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, and the comic complications spin out from there.

This is just the latest remake on Davis' list: he's also shepherding yet another take on Invasion Of The Body Snatchers alongside other fare such as the Dwayne Johnson-starring Jungle Cruise.

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Tickets To See TULLY In Dallas

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See TULLY on May 1st at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
