Movie rumours are always a tricky bit of business, as sometimes projects which sound too good to be true turn out to be...
Well, to be just that.
That said, early word on exciting upcoming releases can sometimes find its way to the grapevine, and it's only fair that it gets a hearing in case there's any truth to the idle gossip. The horror genre in particular is filled with rumoured remakes, reboots, re-imaginings, and upcoming sequels which may never see the light of day, but which would equally well end up being instant classics.

Most of what's reproduced on this list is unfortunately unsubstantiated, but there's nothing here that has been outright denied by filmmakers and most of the projects listed here are at least in the earliest stages of pre-production.
