A piece of concept art recently released for Alex Winter's remake of "The Gate", currently being filmed in 3D. In the original "The Gate" (1987), Glenn (played by a young Stephen Dorff) and his friend Terry unwittingly open a gate to hell by playing a Rock 'N Roll record backwards. The remake will reportedly stay very close to the story of the original. Many people may also be surprised to hear it's being directed by Alex Winter, famous for his role in "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and its sequel, but don't forget he was responsible for the cult classic "Freaked" (1993).

"The Gate 3D" has secured $1.9 million and will begin shooting in Germany shortly, under the direction of Alex Winter. Winter starred in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in the 80's, and also directed the 1993 cult classic "Freaked".

Vanity Fair has a few, slightly new pics from "Alice in Wonderland", directed by Tim Burton and starring Helena Bohnam Carter, Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway.

Darren Lynn Bousman lines up comic adaptation for after he's finished shooting the "Mother's Day" remake.
