Changes are afoot on the upcoming production of the highly-anticipated American remake of “Toni Erdmann.” The film, which was set to star Kristen Wiig and Jack Nicholson, as the father-daughter duo at the center of the story, is in the middle of some b…

There are two words that will make any “RoboCop” fan, like me, suddenly have faith in the upcoming Neill Blomkamp reboot/sequel — Peter Weller. For those not familiar with one of the greatest films of all time (you read that right), “RoboCop” stars act…
