The first pic from "Fear Itself" has surfaced. It's from the story called "The Eater", about a rookie cop forced to stay over night with a particularly nasty prisoner. Also of note, the chick in the picture looks like a poor man's Mena Suvari, which is needless to say not very good. "Fear Itself" is an anthology horror series that will run on NBC this summer.
Fango is talking "Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust", and I'm riveted. Apparently you'll see a couple veteran FX guys appear in the film, mainly Greg Nicotero and John Carl Bucheler, as well as the return of Scream Queen Michelle Bauer. And of course, a killer ginger bread man. What more could you ask for?
"The Tale of Two Sisters" remake, crappily retitled to "Unborn" is being release January 30th, 2009.
"Happy Birthday To Me" is supposedly the next movie on the remake block. No other details are available at this time, except for... ugh.
The following is a list of hilarious things about The Lost Boys II: The Tribe" Cover art. 1: It exists 2: The movie isn't going theatrical 3: There is a person named "Tad" in this movie 4: Could Corey Feldman be any smaller? And 5: The way the names are, it looks like Corey Feldman is named Angus Sutherland. Ya, good luck with that comeback of yours.
As Eric already knows, I've absolutely never been a fan of Suicide Girls. It's entire foundation is based on "breaking the mold" by offering up an "alternative" (get it!) to Playboy by replacing plastic chicks with pallid ex Hot Topic employees with tattoos, extraneous piercings, and fragile StayPuft marshmallow skin. All points that I would have to make aside from personal preference are pretty well documented in this well known blogpost from a few years ago, The Death of Suicide Girls.
Nana Visitor has been cast as Mrs. Voorhees in the "Friday the 13th" remake. In related news, her parents must have hated her to name her that. Visitor is a regular on the Scifi television scene, claiming roles in everything from Star Trek Deep Space Nine, to Dark Angel, to Battlestar Galactica.
Sony Screen Gems is planning on remaking the Linda Blair starrer "Hell Night", and making it PG-13. You may recall that they're the folks behind "the film whose name shall not be spoken" (hint: it rhymes with schmom shnight). When pressed for a reason for the rating, Screen Gems head Clint Culpepper said “You try not to make a movie for an audience that is older than your protagonist.” Now i'm really confused, since "Hell Night" is about college kids. In his defense though, at the time of the interview he was swimming in a pile of money ala Scrooge McDuck, so it was sort of hard to understand what he was saying.
In Real People News:
If you have a friend who is possibly schizophrenic, it would not be a good idea to play a practical joke on him by falsely telling him his girlfriend has AIDS. I know that may seem cheeky and hilarious, but it's probably going to end in him stabbing her 32 times. Oh, and shenanigans on the author of the article for calling it a "Marijuana fueled attack". If anything that probably stopped him from stabbing her more.
