In yesterday's news we reported on a story regarding a new film called "Eve", and how its plot bore a striking resemblance to another film in production right now called "Hack & Slash". Both stories involve a sexy female with a dead parent who has made it her life mission to track down "slasher killers".

Ron Perlman says that if all goes well he'll be starring in Don Coscarelli's "Bubba Nosferatu" this fall. Perlman, of "Hellboy" fame, is replacing Bruce Campbell as "Elvis" from the first film. I love Perlman, but I'm not sure he's capable of filling either of those roles. We'll have to wait and see.

There's a new poster for this movie "Eve" that came out yesterday, but that's not the interesting news. People are (rightfully) remarking on the similarities between this and the comic book adaptation "Hack & Slash"... and by "similarities" I mean, it's the same exact plot. There's enough room in my heart for two sexy slasher hunters, but I'm not sure the rights holders to "Hack & Slash" are going to agree. We'll keep you updated on any legal shenanigans that may arise from this.

Thomas Dekker of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" talks about a few upcoming horror projects he's starring in. This should really please all of the Google searchers who seem to end up on our site while searching for people who also hate this guy.

Will Arnett and Michael Shannon have joined the cast of the "Jonah Hex" adaptation. After finally making my way through "Arrested Development" on DVD, hearing Arnett's name in conjunction with any project pretty much turns me into a giddy school girl.

Say what you want about the Weinstein's, they're definitely shrewd business men. They're continuing that trend by buying all the French horror they can while at the Cannes film festival. The way things have gone lately with the horror coming from our froggy friends, I can't say I blame them.
