    Walter Hill Remake Of 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane' Moves One Unnecessary Step Further As Film Finds Financing

    If the name Walter Hill conjures up at a moment's notice the thrills of “The Driver,” “Streets of Fire,” or “The Warriors,” then it's probably least damaging for your memories to witness the director's work today. After a break from doing TV work on “Deadwood” and the mini-series “Broken Trail,” he ...

    Walter Hill To Write & Direct An Unnecessary Remake Of 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?'

    File this under pointless and unnecessary. Starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, Robert Aldrich's "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" is a demented classic, so why Walter Hill feels the need to rewrite and remake the damn thing is beyond us.

    Simon West Keeps Failing Upwards, Now Directing 'The Expendables 2'

    If you were to draw up a list of the ten worst directors currently working in Hollywood, you'd have to save space for Simon West, who came out swinging with the botched delirium of sub-Bay actioner "Con Air" and has only gone downhill from there. West's films are cacophonous noise tunnels where the human spirit is unwelcome, where cynicism and craven stupidity triumph over creativity and ingenuity.

Yet somehow, Sylvester Stallone, who normally has an ear for his dyed-in-the-wool f...

The thriller, from director Walter Hill, was to match Stallone as a professional killer with Jane the young cop who must collaborate with the hitman to solve a massive conspiracy. And then Dark Castle and superproducer Joel Silver got involved. And looks like Silver he threw his weight around, claiming a Dark Castle mandate for racially mixed lead cast members, so Jan...
