jangobongo writes “Robert Zemeckis, who directed the Polar Express and Back To The Future among many others, will helm a new remake of the epic tale of Beowulf. Sony Pictures is in discussions to distribute the picture. (This version is unrelated to another remake scheduled to be released in 2005 titled Beowulf & Grendel, which is currently in post-production.)” I have no idea which version will make for a better film, but this one has Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary writing the script for it as well.
