4. THE STRANGERS 2 FINALLY ON THE WAY!
After more false starts than I can count, it seems we may FINALLY be getting a sequel to 2008’s home invasion classic, The Strangers. As I’ve written before, this has been a long time coming, but now it seems to be pressing ahead with Marcel Langenegger attached to direct.

5. EVANS LEAVES CROW REBOOT
Luke Evans, the impressive star of No One Lives and less impressive star of Dracula Untold has left Relativity’s reboot of the classic dark comicbook franchise.
I like Evans, so this is a bit sad, but let’s see who director Corin Hardy fills the role with before writing this one off. After all, it can’t rain all the time.
