It director Andy Muschietti seems to be attached to an increasing number of projects and there’s no way he’ll be able to make them all. The latest is a remake of The Time Machine for Warners, for whom he’s also supposedly directing Attack On Titan and has just completed It: Chapter 2. Andy and his producer sister Barbara Muschietti have already written a treatment for the film and Andy will direct it.

This would be the fourth version of the classic H. G. Wells science fiction novel in which an inventor travels into the far future, where he finds humankind divided into two warring races. So far the 1960 version remains by far the best, and the 1978 TV movie by far the worst. The 2002 remake was directed by Wells’s grandson and was just about good enough and different enough to justify its existence, though it could have been a lot better. I can’t really see what yet another version would add except for more elaborate CGI, but I do love this particular story and I guess there’s a chance that it could stick closer to the book – which is certainly a good thing as it contains interesting material unused in any adaptation so far.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
