"Clone Wars" director Genndy Tartakovsky is set to take on the new animated family comedy "Hotel Transylvania" about a vacation resort run by the count himself. But wait, he's also a dad! Adam Sandler, who is somewhat tolerable, will play Dracula, Kevin James, who is not tolerable, will play Frankenstein and Fran Drescher who is just lovely will play his bride.
Speaking of Dracula, Asia Argento, who is Dario Argento's daughter and therefore bat shit insane, has posted a bunch of pictures on her twitter account from the set of "Dracula 3D". The film is a new retelling of the classic vampire story by said bat shit insane girl's father. And if the pictures bore you there's some other ones from her recent vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. I assume.
Dimension Films has picked up the rights to Kyle Kurpinski and Terry D. Johnson's sci-fi book "How to Defeat Your Own Clone" with the plans of adapting it for the big screen. The book, which is something of a handbook, is a comedic romp into the world of what to do when the machines rise up and try to destroy us all. Which I think was suppose to happen a few weeks ago. Little late with the advice, fellas.
A new poster for the upcoming Daniel Craig flick "Dream House" has hit the tubes and it's kind of bad ass. Mostly because it's got Daniel Craig in it and he could take all of us in a fight. Well I'm guessing he could. I don't know who's reading this. If The Rock is reading this I don't think he could take you. Also I'd like to hang out with you if that's possible.

I assume most 14 year old girls dream of waking up and finding a pony in their front lawn but here's a story about one who woke up to find a naked 34 year old man in her bed. I can't imagine any 14 year old girl dreams about that. If they do you should probably get them some help.
With so many people signing on to the zombie apocalypse film "World War Z" it's kind of nice to see Ed Harris and Matthew Fox both backing out of their roles in the movie. Ya know, cause seeing other people's misery makes me feel better about myself. Fox's departure is due to a scheduling conflict and as of now the reason Harris is out is uncertain but I bet it's because everyone on the set kept asking him what it was like to play Robocop. Till the day I die I will insist that was him.
Today we get a look at the first still to come from season 6 of "Dexter" which is currently filming down in Miami. In it you'll see Dexter doing some of his crime type work and looking all technical up in this piece. Plus he's holding something weird in a bag which I guess is some sort of spoiler but honestly I have no idea how. Good post, huh? I'm awesome at stuff.
Rod Serling, the guys who brought us "The Twilight Zone" along with countless other classics looks to be next in line to get the biopic treatment. Details are slim right now but Sterling's widow, Carol Serling, will be a producer on the film and "Wall Street" co-writer Stanley Weiser will pen the script. Pray they do it justice because the only thing more frightening then a group of angry nerds is a group of angry old nerds.
I am happy to report that the upcoming Daniel Craig flick "Dream House" has been slapped with an R rating by the MPAA. The movie focuses on a family that moves into a home only to discovers it was the setting for a brutal murder. I assume there's some sort of spooky happenings that take place shortly after the big move and hats off to the filmmakers for sacking up and throwing in some blood and maybe even some boobs. Keep your fingers crossed.

I usually avoid public pools because they are full of urine but here's another reason. A Massachusetts women was apparently floating dead in a local pool for 3 days before anyone noticed she was there. 3 days. Kids were probably playing on her, families were using her as some sort of floating coffee table and god only knows what was coming out of her during all this. I need to go shower in bleach.
And lastly in an ironic twist of fate, "To Catch a Predator" host Chris Hansen looks to have been caught cheating on his wife by way of a hidden camera sting, much like the ones he helped to set up on his show. Finally some vindication for all those creepy guys trying to pick up 12 years over the internet. Good for them.
There doesn't seem to be too much information available regarding the plot details of director Jim Sheridan's "Dream House", but what I've come across has definitely sparked my interest. In the above snapshot, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz play a couple who move from New York City to a small New England suburb and find that their new home was the site of a brutal murder. As Daniel Craig investigates the tragedy with his neighbor (Naomi Watts) he soon discovers that his family could be the killers next target. "Dream House" is set to hit theaters September 30, 2011.
Director Stephen Soderberg has fast tracked his next project, the outbreak action-thriller "Contagion". Joining him will be Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard. So far, the origin of the outbreak is unknown but investigation shows it is narrowed down to either a viral situation or runaway actor egos.
Normally I don't like to fuel crazy rumors, but this one is too good to pass up. The story that Universal is a planning a possible "Jaws" remake has been around for awhile. Think a reboot is bad enough? How about a reboot starring Tracy Morgan in the place of Matt Hooper?
"Paranormal Activity" continues to make waves as it scares the vino out of Italy. The country's emergency response service has been flooded with calls from teenagers and youth suffering from panic attacks after viewing the commercials. So far, the government has yet to ban the film.
Draco Malfoy has joined the cast of "The Apparition", a story about a couple haunted after a college experiment. So far, it would appear that Tom Feldon is going to be cast as the film's 'star power'.
