Bioshock

“Frankenstein’s Army” is a found footage film about a unit of Russian soldiers who are fighting Nazis during WWII and searching for other missing Russians. Instead of finding missing soldiers they are forced to fight an army of “steampunk” monsters that have been created by Dr. Frankenstein, who apparently has been attempting to end the war by combining equal halves of communists and fascists brains.

Bill Nighy, who is apparently not "the science guy" has set his sights on the villain role in "I, Frankenstein". A new film which will starting shooting soon and tells the tale of everyone's favorite reanimated monster and what would happen if he popped up in the modern world. No news as to what the specific role would be but I don't think it would kill him to show us how magnets work or something.

A few months back it sounded like a big screen version of the video game "Bioshock" has some real potential to be made but from the way game creator Ken Levine is talking now it sounds like the film just isn't in the cards. Levine says in a recent interview that there's no real "desire" to have the movie get made and then goes on to give all the reasons as to why it would be bad. What about my desires, Ken? Those don't mean anything to you any more?!

We've all been waiting for a sequel to "Bikini Girls On Ice". Hell I heard some local schools are shutting down in protest until a new film is confirmed. Well get back to math class kids because we've got some new images from "Pin-Up Girls On Ice" for your viewing pleasure. This time around a group of pin up girls are asked to perform at a secluded camp that just so happens to be hunting grounds for a killer obsessed with ice. I can finally get some sleep tonight.

Valentina Cervi, who I'm not familiar with but based on pictures I assume reads a lot, is the latest name to be added to the upcoming season of "True Blood". Mrs. Book Worm will play an ancient vampire with the power to seduce men with all her worldly charms. But then the men get to her house and see she doesn't own a TV and fake some early morning meeting or something. Maybe ask if she has a sister.

Oh boy oh boy! Amar'e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks if currently in discussions to sign on as an executive producer for the "The Strangers 2". I know, a Basketball player and a horror movie. Sounds like a perfect fit! Maybe some of his teammates can take on the acting roles. It'll be like those episodes of "Saturday Night Live" where an athlete hosts and no one watches.

Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games, recently sat down to discuss the much talked about "Bioshock" movie that everyone has pretty much given up on. According to Kenny though there's still a possibility and he'd be happy to see a movie be made. Of course based on the interview it sounds like there is no progress whatsoever but who knows. He then went on to use the word "pieces" so many times that I assume he was sitting in a room with a group of people who had agreed to do a shot every time he said it.

If I heard one consistent comment about Trent Haaga's "Deadgirl" it's that all the necrophilia is great but why isn't the picture quality better?! Well good news, you sick pervert who should be locked up, the 2008 sleepy hit is findings it's way to Blu-Ray on August 30th. For those of you not familiar with the movie it's about a couple of kids who find a living dead girl strapped to a table in an abandoned hospital and eventually end up having sex with her. I immediately regret telling you all that.

It's a slow day and everyone here at the BGH office has already taken off for the weekend so here's another new poster for "Super 8" which leads me to believe they're not even bothering to not make this movie look like "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" anymore. Of course Steve Spielberg is the producer of the J.J. Abrams joint so maybe the two were at a bar one night and Abrams was complaining about Third Kind and Spielberg got sick of it and just said "well you try to make it better, prick!". What the hell do I know though.

According to the twitterverse Kevin Pollak has signed on to the cast of Kevin Smith's "Red State". The film is about a group of kids who encounter a gang of crazed fundamentalists in middle America. The good news? No mention of Jay or Silent Bob in the cast list

Gore Verbinski, the guy who directed all the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, still wants to make a "Bioshock" film and he's willing to murder to make it happen. Alright he probably won't go that far but he's super into making it happen. So into it he would kill! Sorry.

What's better than 6 new clips from "Let Me In"? How about 8! You guessed 7 didn't you? Of course if the movie sucks 0 would be the correct number. Either way there's a lot of math going on here and I need a nap.

Why wouldn't you do a 3D remake of the 1977 film "Kingdom of the Spiders"? Well alright there's really a long list of reasons but at this point who gives a crap. 3D is freakin awesome! Bring on the spiders and whatnot.

Magnet Releasing, which is a part of Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to "Chawz". If you couldn't guess by the title the Korean film is about a giant crazed pig terrorizing a peaceful countryside. My mistake, there's no way you could have guessed what this movie is about.

Gore Verbinski has surfaced from the depths to talk about the delays surrounding the big screen adaptation of 2K Games "Bioshock", sighting troubles of maintaining a manageable budget while keeping a hard R rating.

AMC made clear some time ago that director Frank Darabont would only be directing the pilot of their epic undead series "The Walking Dead". As the production of the show hits full steam, AMC starts to look towards their next director with their sites set firmly on "Breaking Bad" helmer Michelle Maxwell McLaren.

Nobody knows for sure what the viral "Patient Zero" is advertising, but the postcards handed out to patrons of this weekend's Anime Expo are intriguing at least.

Who is Roger Jackson? He's none other than that gravely voice we hear on the phone whenever Ghostface calls to flirt with Drew Barrymore in the "Scream" movies. Not that it makes much of a difference on the outcome of "Scream 4", Mr. Jackson has officially signed on to reprise his role.

Video game geeks the world over cried out loud when news came awhile back that Gore Verbinski was no longer attached to the big screen "Bioshock" adaptation. Fear not, because Universal has announced that the movie is still moving forward. "28 Weeks Later" Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has now been tasked to bring the underwater spook fest to life.

Jeff Gentry, director of 2007's indie horror darling "The Signal", has been given the reigns to MTV Films' "My Super Pyscho 16". While there are no details available for the film, it is said to be a slasher, and judging from his earlier film, Gentry should be up to the task.

Cover art for the upcoming "Night of the Creeps" DVD and Blu-ray has hit the streets and they're different for each format! One looks cool, one looks rushed, you be the final judge!

Due to the "shadowcast" phenomenon (think Rocky horror but with Goth kids), "Repo: The Genetic Opera" director Darren Lynn bousman has launched a website to keep the mythos going. He says this is a "life long project" for him, which I hope means they'll eventually do another version of the film, only this time not so terrible.

The release of "Zombieland" has been bumped up a week. You can now check out the Woody Harrelson zombie film on October 2nd.

"28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is in talks to direct "Bioshock", the adaptation of the wildly popular videogame.

Todd Mcfarlane has officially started writing a new "Spawn" film. He says that it will be a standalone story, and he's shooting for an "R" rating.

The following is a "Rumble Trailer" for "The Final Destination" over at Break.com. Warning: the video does autoplay when you go there so watch those speakers at work. It's kind of a nifty little marketing thing though, so I recommend checking it out.
