Here's a bunch of new pictures from "Red State" that have hit the nets. For those of you not in the know "Red State" is the new Kevin Smith horror flick that will apparently not include any of the haha. Sounds like all his other films! Booyah, I'm on today,
Here's a bunch of new images from "I Saw the Devil" which unfortunately, don't show the actual devil. But from the look on people's faces it looks like maybe they did see the devil so I am going to keep my fingers crossed that at some point I will see the devil in this film... DEVIL.
Dustin Runnels AKA Goldust from the good old WWE will be directing and producing his first horror film titled "The Fire Witch". No idea what the movie will actually be about but my guess is it has something to do with fire and probably at least one witch.
Remember Anne Rice? Me too! Wow we should do a checklist of all the other things we have in common. Anyway Anne is hoping for a reboot of her "The Vampire Chronicles" film, probably because vampires are so hot right now and she's fallen on hard times. I heard she spends her days at the local food kitchen. That's not confirmed though.
In Real People News:
Ever wanted to own Lee Harvey Oswald's coffin? Me neither but somebody does because the casket will be auctioned off in LA and the bidding starts at $1,000. The only bummer is that he's not still in there though.
And to round out the week here's a women in Spain who claims she now owns the sun. Feel free to make your own jokes about this one.
Pack your picnic basket and grab your hood because Warner Brothers has set a date for Catherine Hardwicke's werewolf tale "Red Riding Hood". This Amanda Seyfried starring gothic retelling will hit theaters on March 11th, 2010.
The next "Final Destination" installment has been given an annoying official title in the form of "5nal Destination". Details have slipped about the film's opening suspension bridge disaster as well, but we all stopped caring after "5nal".
I'll go ahead and say this is a 'thing' now; revamping literary classics to turn them into monster mashups. The newest book to the add to the pile is Sheri Borwning Erwin's "Jane Slayre". If you couldn't tell by the clever title, this is a simple case of turning Charlotte Brontes "Jane Eyre" into a vampire slayer. At this rate, we're only months away from "Of Mice and Monsters".
While the title of "Red Sonja", Conan's flame haired female counterpart, was previously given to Rose McGowan and director Douglas Aarniokosk, those plans have been scrapped. In fact, they're even shopping for a new writer which pretty much spells out the fact that this latest reboot was a complete disaster. What could be seen as good news by some and questionable news by many is word that Millennium Films has now offered the role to Megan Fox.
In a completely unexpected turn, genre favorite Danny Trejo has announced plans to self finance a basketball drama. Focused on the Utah Jazz player Paul Millsap and his uncle/agent DeAngelo Simmons who kept the player off the streets of Louisiana, the film is tentatively titled "Ambition". Which is apt for Trejo's attempt at self financing this movie as well.
1590: Sent to England to get supplies three years prior, John White finally returns to Roanoke Island and discovers his colony "strongly enclosed with a high palisade of great trees, with [curtain walls] and [bastions] -- very fort-like." There is no sign of the settlers or where they may have gone.
This news was from Friday... Robert Downey Jr. is rumored to be in final talks to play the Vampire Lestat in a reboot of "The Vampire Chronicles" by Anne Rice. This had the web abuzz late last week. Since I have no attachment to the stories and have a man-crush on Downey, I'll pretty much be watching this no matter how it turns out.
Robert Rodriguez produced "Predators" (directed by Nimrod Antal) will officially begin shooting in September. The story centers on a group of people stuck on the Predator's homeland, which as you can guess doesn't go very well.
So ya, as your kids prepare to go back to school, don't forget to teach them the intricacies of anal beer-bongs and snorting vodka shots. Oh you've never done that? Okay well maybe they can teach you then. That should be a fun conversation.
1896: Bridget Driscoll, a 44-year-old mother of two, becomes the world's first automobile fatality when she steps in front of a car outside the Crystal Palace in London. At the coroner's inquest, Arthur Edsall states he had been driving at only 4 mph. The motorist also claims that when he saw the pedestrian, he rang his bell and shouted "Stand back!"
