The Lone Ranger script is going to be written by the writers of the Pirates of the Caribbean series according to Yahoo News. Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio are writing the story that first appeared on a 1930’s radio show. The origin of the story is a group of Texas Rangers chasing down a gang of outlaws. The gang ambushes them and kills all but one. The lone survivor is nursed to health by an Indian called Tonto and they team up together to find justice.

Another Korean horror remake gets grabbed by Hollywood, and this time it’s the debut of the Jung brothers who have released their film Epitaph (Gidam) to quite a healthy amount of praise. The film is set in a World War II hospital in Korea and is billed as a “reinvention of the horror genre” by Variety.

Radha Mitchell is set to join with Bruce Willis in the science fiction thriller The Surrogates according to Coming Soon. The film is set in the future were humans live in isolation and use robots as surrogates to interact with each other. Willis will play a policeman who investigates the murders of other people’s surrogates, and he uses his own surrogate to do so. However in the latest investigation he has to leave his home and do the work himself, for the very first time. The film is being directed by Jonathan Mostow.

Maria Bello is in negotiations to replace Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee after Gyllenhaal’s schedule conflicted. She joins Robin Wright Penn, Monica Belluci, Winona Ryder, Julianne Moore and Alan Arkin. The news comes from Yahoo News.
