JoBlo.com reports that Randall William Cook will remake the PG 1980s horror film "The Gate" -- in 3-D.
"We're hearing that a remake of the suburban horror cheapie THE GATE is the latest to get a modern facelift. Word is that Randall William Cook will direct the update, and he's certainly qualified for monster mayhem -- he's an Oscar-winning FX guru who worked on KING KONG and the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy... not to mention the original THE GATE and its sequel. The plan is reportedly to shoot the new version in all-the-rage 3-D. No mention yet on a writer or studio, but considering Cook's WETA background, could Peter Jackson's involvement be far behind?"

Meanwhile, MovieHole reports that a sequel to "Screamers" is in the works. Don't know if anyone remembers that movie from the 1990s, but it was pretty good. Click here for our review of it.
