Platinum Dunes is going forward with an as-yet-untitled supernatural thriller about satanic cults by scribe Scott Kosar (“Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). Fuller tells Sci-Fi Wire that the story follows a college girl investigating her brother’s death and finds a satanic cult is responsible. She soon infiltrates it, “gets involved and gets in way over her head.”

Stephen Norrington (Blade, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Death Machine) has signed on to both write and direct the “reinvention” of The Crow. “Whereas Proyas’ original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style,” Norrington said.

The Halcyon Company, who currently owns the franchise rights to Terminator, has already greenlit the fifth film in the Terminator series, following the currently in-production Terminator Salvation.

Bruce Sherlock, a producer of The Phantom (starring the legendary Billy Zane), is set to bring the character back to the big screen for a sequel, and film it entirely in Australia. The Phantom Legacy is the new film and it doesn’t sound like it’s a sequel, perhaps more a remake. “[It will focus on] the Father/Son relationship, and what it means to be The Phantom…The film will be set in the present day and will deal with the concept of destiny.”
