* Classic Ingrid Bergman thriller Gaslight is set to hit the big screen again with British filmmaker Joe Wright at the helm. In the 1944 thriller, Charles Boyer played a husband trying to drive his wife (Bergman) to insanity. The new Gaslight will be director Wright's first Hollywood venture. The original movie, set in Victorian England, co-starred Joseph Cotton and a teenage Angela Lansbury in her film debut. It garnered seven Oscar nominations and won two. Cast details for the updated remake, to be set in California, have not been announced.
* Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in talks to reprise Clint Eastwood’s role in comedy Every Which Way But Loose. In the 1978 original, Eastwood played a fist-fighting drifter who befriends an orangutan he wins in a bet.
* Action man Steven Seagal is set to tackle international terrorists in a third Under Siege movie. The martial arts star is in talks to reprise his Casey Ryback. In the new film, Ryback is sent on a mission to take out Muslim extremists who have taken over a flight from Israel to the United States, according to moviehole.net. Seagal also hopes to produce the third film.
