Box office champ Will Smith is eyeballing Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion for possible remake. The affable actor has expressed interest in producing the film and taking on the lead role originally played by Cary Grant.
Suspicion centers on a young bride’s fears that the charming—but broke—man she married is plotting to kill her to collect on her life insurance. The 1941 mystery-thriller is based on Francis Iles’ 1932 novel Before the Fact, which had a much darker ending than Hitchcock’s film.
The last time Smith played a white man’s role in a movie was in Barry Sonnenfield’s disastrous 1999 remake of the Wild Wild West. He played the part of Robert Conrad’s James T. West.
Personally, I’d like to see Smith take on a black actor’s role. Maybe Wesley Snipes’ part in Passenger 57 or Wesley Snipes in Boiling Point. Wesley Snipes is very black.
The Hollywood Blvd. Cinema in Chicago, IL hosted a 25th anniversary screening of Robert Zemeckis’ beloved 1985 classic Back to the Future.
The event included a Q&A and meet-and-greet with stars Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly), Claudia Wells (Jennifer Parker), and James Tolkan (Principal Strickland).
After the screening, the actors all reportedly piled into the prop DoLorean DMC-12 parked outside the theater and attempted to head back to the ’80s to fire their agents—except for Llyod who simply went back to 2008 to buy better fire insurance for his home in Montecito, CA.

Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova serves as a reference model for director Louis Leterrier’s CGI-produced Medusa in Warner Bros.’ upcoming remake of the 1981 fantasy-adventure classic Clash of the Titans.
While the idea of using a hot babe in such a manner may seem odd, it should be noted that fifth century artists often portrayed the gorgon as both beautiful and frightening.
What you see here are scans from Empire magazine’s Clash of the Titans photo spread featuring Medusa’s transformation to snake woman. Admit it, you’d totally hit that.
Clash of the Titans stars Sam Worthington (Avatar) as Perseus, Liam Neeson (After.Life) as Zeus, and Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter) as Hades, lord of the underworld. The film arrives in theaters on April 2.

Eliza Dushku is to Joss Whedon what Leonardo DiCaprio is to Martin Scorsese … but with a great set of jugs. The pair have worked together on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and the recently canceled Fox sci-fi series “Dollhouse.” Now, the 29-year-old starlet has hinted that she and Whedon will collaborate on a movie, most likely Whedon’s long-gestating thriller Goners.
Dushku told HollywoodLife.com:
I would say that we would be working on something new very soon! I think we’re going to work on a kickass feature together that we’ve been thinking about for a few years.
Dushku is also rumored to have a role in Ivan Reitman’s highly anticipated Ghostbusters 3.
