Grimsby

Director: Louis Leterrier

Cast: Sacha Baron Cohen

Genre: Comedy

Plot: Cohen spoofs the secret agent genre, reportedly playing two brothers in this chuckle-a-thon. With his spy likely to be more Austin Powers than 007, Cohen was originally meant to be working alongside long-time collaborator Larry Charles (director of The Dictator , Bruno and Borat ), only for Charles to be replaced by French director Louis Leterrier (of The Hulk and last year’s Now You See Me ). Should we expect blockbuster action galore?

The Stand

Director: Josh Boone (TBC)

Cast: TBC

Genre: Post-apocalyptic horror-thriller

Plot: With a run of directors attached and then unattached to Stephen King’s adaptation of his epic novel (Scott Cooper, David Yates and Ben Affleck to name a few), The Stand is finally looking to be back on track. King’s post-apocalyptic epic follows survivors choosing sides of good and evil, Mother Abigail’s fight against the tyrannical Randall Flagg, after 99.4% of the population is wiped out by the super-flu “Captain Trips”.

The Raid 3

Director: Gareth Evans

Cast: TBC

Genre: Action/adventure thriller

Plot: The only hint we’ve got towards the plot so far is director Gareth Evans’ tweet that “ The Raid 3 would start two hours before The Raid 2 ends”. So more martial-arts thrills are expected. Evans is reportedly taking a couple years' break before filming the third film in this stuntman-falls-down-staircase series, though, so we may be waiting a while before it happens...

Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo, Rupert Grint, Evan Rachel Wood

Genre: Drama

Plot: LaBeouf continues his experimental indie phase with an indie drama about young guy Charlie Countryman (LaBeouf) who falls for a beautiful Romanian girl (Wood) after sharing a flight that kills her father.

The Raid (US Remake)

Director: Patrick Hughes

Cast: TBC

Genre: Action/adventure thriller

Plot: The English-language remake of Gareth Evans’ super-charged martial arts tower-block blood bath is likely to repeat the plot of 'good-cop has to take down a crime lord'. Shame he doesn’t live on the bottom floor.

Escape From New York

Director: TBC

Cast: TBC

Genre: Science-fiction Thriller

Plot: Producer Joel Silver is heading up this remake of John Carpenter’s cult 1981 sci-fi thriller. The plot is likely to reflect the original narrative - rogue soldier Snake Plissken is tasked with saving the President from inmates of the maximum-security prison that is Manhattan Island. And an explanation of the city’s demise is rumoured for the remake.

Masters Of The Universe

Director: TBC

Cast: TBC

Genre: Action Adventure

Plot: He-Man returns to the screen in a live-action remake. No word on the plot yet, with director John Chu departing from the project and only rumours of the leading-man so far. Here's hoping for something as gloriously camp as the 1980s film starring Dolph Lundgren.
