"The Raid 3 was... at one point it was on my radar. I had a full idea. I know what the storyline would have been. But I think enough time has passed now that I think I'm not likely to go back and revisit it. We had a lot of fun making those films, and I think we came to a nice, sort of natural conclusion with [The Raid 2]. And I think sometimes you can have a little bit too much of a good thing." Gareth Evans
Based on an original screenplay by Gareth Evans, the first The Raid starred Iko Uwais as Rama - a member of an elite S.W.A.T. team assigned a mission to take down a tenement controlled by a violent and dangerous mobster. The sequel, in turn, saw that mission expand, as Rama goes undercover in an attempt to root out corruption within his department. Both films earned glowing reviews from professional critics and audience, most of the excitement generated because of the films' remarkable fight scenes, and even for a time Hollywood considered an English-language remake. That project never came together, however, and now it looks like The Raid 3 is going to share a similar fate.

Sources shared with ComicBook.com earlier this year that one character, named "Chen," is a "Chinese factory worker who commits suicide shortly after re-programming a Buddy doll to have no limitations." As far as the iconic killer doll is concerned, Chucky is described as "a defective 'Buddy doll' whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence."
These details confirm that two of the biggest elements of the franchise, which has seen seven installments debut, will be absent from the film. The overall supernatural concept will be abandoned, which was what allowed the spirit of the killer to return in multiple films. Additionally, it seems as though the entire identity of the doll will be devoid of personality, with Chucky's crass humor being another major selling point of the series.

Now that the multi-talented Rob Zombie has concluded his recent musical tour, he can hunker down to begin whittling away the footage he shot for his Devil's Rejects sequel Three From Hell, taking to Instagram to confirm that he's begun the editing process.
The filmmaker shared a photo of himself with editor Glenn Garland, noting that the two have collaborated on The Devil's Rejects, Halloween, Halloween II, The Lords of Salem, and 31.
The new film is the third film in his series that was launched by House of 1000 Corpses. In that film, a group of weary travelers who are investigating roadside attractions crosses paths with the sadistic Firefly family, leading to bizarre rituals and gruesome disfigurement.
In the sequel, audiences saw three members of the Firefly family, Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis (Bill Moseley), and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) take their terror on the road, causing a path of mayhem and destruction along their way. The Devil's Rejects' finale depicted these characters driving head-on into a police barricade, subjecting themselves to a hail of gunfire.
Fans have wondered how the characters, who seemingly died, could emerge in Three From Hell, with set photos teasing that they were left with scars from their conflict but must have received the necessary medical attention in time to survive long enough to stand trial.

Warning: major spoilers ahead for The Predator. The movie's last scene, as it exists, sees Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) discovering that a Predator who has betrayed his species has given humanity a way to combat the killers in the future. Billed as a "Predator killer", it's a suit of armor, not dissimilar to what Iron Man wears, with a design befitting this particular franchise. McKenna is the man who can use the suit and it's clear the intention was to have him hunting down the aliens in this suit in future installments. The hunters becoming the hunted.
That sequel is almost surely off the table, but if the movie's original ending had happened, maybe we would be having a different conversation. In an earlier draft of the screenplay, penned by Fred Decker and director Shane Black, this scene doesn't exist. Instead, just after Quinn McKenna, his son Rory (Jacob Tremblay) and Casey (Olivia Munn) survive their encounter with the Ultimate Predator, defeating him in a bloody battle, they come across a helicopter that lands near them. And who is it that climbs out of this helicopter? None other than Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dutch who, according to the script has a "face haunted; etched by pain." Dutch instructs them to come with him. Rory then asks, "Uh...me, too?" Dutch replies, smiling, with, "Especially you." Cut to credits.
In spite of all the movie's flaws, this Schwarzenegger cameo may well have managed to give fans something they really wanted to see at the end. And no doubt, the sequel being set up here would have been much more appealing than low-rent Iron Man v Predator.

Eddie Murphy is set to star in an upcoming remake of the 1993 Walter Matthau/Jack Lemmon comedy “Grumpy Old Men,” a person with knowledge of the project has told TheWrap. Tim Story, director of the “Ride Along” films, will direct the film.
Warner Bros. will release the film with New Line producing, continuing the two studios’ ongoing plans to revamp IPs from decades past. Other recent WB remakes and updates include “Ocean’s 8” and “It,” the latter of which has a sequel coming out next year. New Line is also working with Story to produce a remake of “Shaft,” which stars Samuel L. Jackson and will come out next June.
The original “Grumpy Old Men” starred Matthau and Lemmon as two rival neighbors whose feud becomes even more bitter when a new female neighbor moves in across the street. The film grossed $70 million at the box office and spawned a 1995 sequel, “Grumpier Old Men.”

DEATH KISS concerns a vigilante with a mysterious past who goes to a crime-infested city and takes the law into his own hands, at the same time protecting a young mother and her child.
Writer-director is Rene Perez (PLAYING WITH DOLLS: HAVOC). Producer is Jeff Miller (THE TOYBOX, OUIJA HOUSE), through his company Millman Productions. Gary Jones helped executive produce through his company Mosquito Entertainment. Zach Carter served as Supervising Producer.
