Since everything is getting remade these days, you may as well put the remakes in the hands of talented filmmakers. Benny and Josh Safdie have earned raves for their film Good Time and now they’ve been tapped to co-write and direct a remake of Walter Hill’s 1982 action-comedy 48 Hrs. The original starred Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte as a convict and a cop, respectively, who team up to catch cop killers in 48 hours. Jerrod Carmichael, who starred in and co-created the acclaimed The Carmichael Show, will co-write the script.
According to THR, the Safdies will write the script with Carmichael and their Good Time collaborator Ronald Bronstein. No casting decisions have been announced yet,

I really am a hug fan of Artie so this really stinks.
From Radar Online
Artie Lange has been placed in protective custody following his arrest Tuesday night for missing too many court dates, Radaronline.com has exclusively learned.
According to a law enforcement source, the 50-year-old addict is “under constant supervision” and “isolated” in his cell at the Essex County Jail in his native New Jersey.
“He is doing okay,” the insider told Radar. “He’s by himself and what we classify as a P.C. inmate, under protective custody.”
As Radar previously reported, in the two days since his arrest, Lange has already had to receive medical attention for drug addiction and diabetes issues
Lange will not be allowed to post bail until after his court appearance on Friday, December 15.
The comedian was arrested in his home in Hoboken after failing to appear in court for a prior drug arrest in May, when police caught him with a bag of heroin in his lap
“He had a bench warrant out and his warrant came to our attention,” Officer Kevin Lynch of the Essex County Sheriff’s department told Radar. “We knew he was home, and we arrested him around 6:40 pm without incident.”
Lange has worried family, friends and fans with his bizarre behavior in recent months. Just last week, cops rushed to the podcast host’s home after he posted a disturbing selfie on Twitter.
After weeks of teasing the public with reports of false starts and stops, Disney and Fox have settled on a massive $52 billion deal in which all of 21st Century’s film rights are being sold to the House of Mouse. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is about to get a whole lot more, well, fantastic.
Today, Rupert Murdoch—Fox’s executive chairman—expressed his confidence in the acquisition’s potential to strengthen both companies:
“We are extremely proud of all that we have built at 21st Century Fox, and I firmly believe that this combination with Disney will unlock even more value for shareholders as the new Disney continues to set the pace in what is an exciting and dynamic industry.”
News of the deal comes after early reports that Fox proper was looking to unload 21st Century Fox in favor of focusing more on news and sports, its two other largest business endeavors. For Fox, this deal means a rather hefty payday but for Marvel, it’s more of a long-overdue homecoming.
While Fox’s X-Men and Fantastic Four movies weren’t always particularly good, the studio was finally in the process of beginning to carve out a rather distinctive and honestly refreshing voice in the superhero movie space with films like Logan, Deadpool, and The New Mutants.

It's been 17 years since Shaft has last been in theaters, and his return has been long overdue. Much like the 2000 project, some new members have been added to the family that bears the name that launched a successful 1970s franchise. With Independence Day: Resurgence's Jessie Usher playing the newest, youngest Shaft (the son of Samuel L. Jackson's returning character), his mother is the last pivotal role to be cast for this family affair. And she's officially been cast as of today, with Regina Hall taking that spot in the roster for Son of Shaft.
Further details on Son of Shaft were also released by Variety, which also reveals the story will center around Jessie Usher's younger Shaft, who's not exactly the eye candy to all the chicks that his great uncle, or even his father were. However, he is a young and promising FBI agent, who is about to engage in the family business of detective work, after a friend has died under mysterious circumstances.

Woody Harrelson may become entangled in Venom's web.
The actor is in talks for an undisclosed role in Venom, the Tom Hardy-led Spider-Man offshoot from Sony.
Hardy is starring as the popular Marvel Comics antihero with Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate also on the roll call.
If a deal is made, it would mark a reunion for Harrelson with helmer Ruben Fleischer, who directed the actor in the hit 2009 zombie comedy Zombieland. Venom is already deep into production — filming began in October — and rumors of Harrelson's involvement have swirled on-and-off.
Sony, which had no comment, will release Venom on Oct. 5, 2018.

Less than a month after its Netflix debut, Marvel’s The Punisher has been renewed.
“He's just getting started. The Punisher will return for Season 2,” read a characteristically terse post on the show’s Facebook page
The Punisher’s first season picked up where the character was left after his introduction in the second season of Daredevil. It followed the vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) as he dug deeper into his family’s senseless murder, uncovered a government conspiracy and allied himself with Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), a former NSA agent. And in the midst of all that, the show attempted to weave in themes of the gun control debate in the United States and the struggles of veterans to adjust to civilian life.
Not much is known about where a second season might take the character. It seems unlikely that we’d get a third Punisher story that has him hunting down the last of his family’s killers. But the first season did set itself up nicely for a major Punisher villain from the comics to return and make life difficult for its protagonist.
