De Mornay Becomes A 'Mother' And Jamie Chung On 'Sucker Punch' In Today's Dailies -- 8/31/09

-- Rebecca De Mornay, who I'll always identify with the delightfully cheesy "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle," gets to roll out her sadistic mommy act again when she stars in the upcoming remake of the 1980 horror flick "Mother's Day." Latter-day "Saw" director Darren Lynn Bousman is directing, so expect plenty of greasy, grimy gore to keep you up at night when De Mornay and her band of twisted sociopaths terrorize a family living in their old home. (Variety)

-- Nicolas Cage has signed on to star in the revenge flick "Driving Angry," which will be a 3-D release. Cage will play a man who sets out on a quest for bloody murder after his daughter is killed and her child is kidnapped. Patrick Lussier will direct a script that he co-wrote with Todd Farmer. Lussier previously directed "My Bloody Valentine 3D," so he's got plenty of experience in looking at a scene with an eye towards multi-dimensional spectacle. (The Hollywood Reporter)

-- Mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer may not be confirmed for "Bad Boys 3", but he's just picked up the rights to "Shake," a short story written by Derek Haas. The story comes from a new website that Haas started,, which serves as a showcase for short fiction from film and TV writers. (The Hollywood Reporter)
