I have no idea what to make of Nicolas Cage anymore. I do nothing but joke about him but every movie he comes out with I want to see. Take "I am Wrath" for instance, which has just landed "The Exorcist" director William Friedkin. The plot is pretty played out, a guy takes the law into his own hand after his wife is murdered, but Cage will be all kinds of nuts in it and make weird faces and I will love it. Even if it's awful. It's going to be awful.
"Sleeping With the Enemy" director Joseph Ruben has officially signed on to remake the 1945 Orson Welles classic "The Stranger". For those of you not familiar with the original the film focuses on a reformed serial killer who is reunited with his old partner who tries to convince him to start killing again. I don't know what it is but anytime I'm reminded of Julia Roberts I want to murder too. I think it's her face.
Elijah Wood has always been a creepy little SOB but I had no idea he was such a horror nut. But according to the internet, which never lies, the snaggled toothed one has partnered up to form The Woodshed, a new production company aimed at bringing horror to the masses. I don't really know how horror isn't already being brought to the masses but the company has already lined up a gaggle of flicks that it plans on dropping in the near future. It's weird that Kirsten Dunst and him never got together now that I think about it.
AJ Bowen and Barbara Crampton have both been confirmed for the upcoming Halloween comedy "Grow Up". Solid chance you can guess the premise of this one but just so we're all on the same page it focuses on a young man who refuses to let the joys of his youth end. Sounds like every person that reads or writes for this site. I think we've got a winner.
I've seen a bunch of movies where people try to eat all the drugs they have before the cops bust them but I had no idea people in real life were stupid enough to try it. Congrats guy in Scranton PA who tried to eat a entire pot plant, you're now on the same level as those three burn outs from "Super Troopers".
I just waited through a 7 minute advertisement for some video game that gave me seizures to watch the new trailer for "Jurassic Shark". I regret nothing. The movie stars Emanuelle Carriere, who much to my surprise did not get her start in those late night Skinemax movies I watch, and is about a giant prehistoric shark that returns to bring death and destruction to a bunch of girls wearing next to nothing. I know, I'm excited too.
I know what you're thinking, why the hell isn't there a "Poltergeist" remake out there? I know you so well. Well good news kids because Roy Lee, the producer who brought you "The Strangers" and "Quarantine" says a reboot is very much a goal of his and hopes to have it out in the world sometime next year. I'm trying to track down his home address so you can go thank him personally. I'll let you know what I find, there's a lot of Lee's out there.
I refuse to explain to you the plot of "Silent Night Of the Living Dead" but I will tell you that both AJ Bowen and Tom Savini have joined the cast. I know it's tough love but come on, it's a play on the classic zombie flick and a Christmas song. What the hell don't you get? God do I have to wipe your ass too?
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty excited about "Men In black 3". I don't know what it is but as my age gets up there I'm finding Will Smith more and more enjoyable. I'm just as surprised as you are! Anyway here's a look at the first poster for the film that is scheduled to hit theaters in May of 2012. Have you watched "Wild Wild West" lately? Seriously it's not that bad.
In Real People News:
As a new father I can fully understand the value of a good deal. So it's not surprise to me when I hear stories about people going nuts on black Friday. Alright maybe some of the stories are a surprise, like this one about a bunch of shoppers in West Virginia who stepped over a dying man in order to get to their shopping. That's a little surprising.
