We'll be totally honest, we kind of completely forgot this movie existed or was even happening, although with this latest bit of news, perhaps it's no surprise. But let's recap a bit, shall we? In the works since '90s, and originally set to star Brendan Fraser and Aishwarya Rai, filming finally got underway on Roland Joffe's "Singularity" in late 2010 with Josh Hartnett, Bipashu Basu and Neve Campbell. The film boasts an ambitious story, first taking place in 2020, centering on a modern day marine biologist Jay Fennel (Hartnett) who undertakes a near-fatal dive to save his wife Laura (Campbell) while exploring an 18th Century merchant ship wreckage. He winds up in a Boston hospital in a dream-like coma, where he envisions India in 1778 where British captain James Stewart (Hartnett, again) is about to embark on a dangerous mission and falls in love with a Marathi warrior named Tulaja Naik (Basu). But it seems from day one, there were problems.

New decade, new rules, huh? Not exactly. Pop quiz: what would a "Scream" movie be without its movie in-jokes, exactly? Hmm, perhaps an original film? A Canadian trailer for the Weinstein Company's desperate franchise cash-in has arrived and get it while it's hot because the studio keeps taking down various trailers on YouTube only for them to spring up again five minutes later. They should probably realize the wildfire has spread and it's best to just release an official version already.
