Looks like both Tom Hardy and Jason Statham are being tossed around to play the lead in the upcoming Joel Silver remake of "Escape From New York". It's all just rumors now but either one of them would make a dreamy Snake Plisskin. It's like having to choose between Cheesecake and Pumpkin Pie. You're going to be happy either way and there's no way your ass is going to fit into those new jeans.
Some additional details and the first cast photo of the new "Zombieland" pilot has hit the tubes. It looks like the show, which hopes to run into full production on Amazon streaming service will pick up two weeks after the original film ended. The gang will be leaving Pacific Playland and heading out on a cross country road trip. I assume there will be zombies too. It would be stupid if there wasn't
Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, of "The Divide" fame, is set to make her directorial debut with a new flick titled "The Night Visitor". No real word on what the film's story will be but it looks to be a sci-fi/horror combo shot in the found footage style and shooting is set to begin on April 4th in LA. Just in time for Spring fashion season!
Soon to be Oscar nominated "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" has officially been slapped with a DVD release date and it's going to be June 11th. The film will be made available on all kinds of formats for your viewing pleasure and be chock full of features an unrated version and interviews. I know I'm pretty much come to terms with the fact that I'm going to be too excited to sleep for the next 2 months.
I've always assumed it has got to be miserable for a parent to have to chaperone their child's school trip but I can't say I agree with this woman in Florida grabbing the bull by the horns by and getting tanked before her son's trip to a local museum. Wait no I'm wrong, it was a grandmother. This is perfectly acceptable. Old people can do anything they want.
I had all these fun sarcastic things to say about the new trailer for "Black Death" but I just don't have it in me. This red band sucker has witches, people getting poked with spikes and all around Medieval nastiness. Unfortunately now I just feel like I need a shower and I'd like to take a nap.
All kinds of hot pics have hit the tubes from the soon to be classic "Dead Race 2". Yes it's direct to DVD and no there's no Jason Statham but hey they still have cars in the movie with machine guns and stuff. That's still something, right?
Two new posters for Kevin Smith's "Red State" have been released and about as fun as shooting a toothless hog outside of a trailer hitch. Or at least that's what I assume the people in those posters would say. maybe something about vittles. Point being they look like they're a product of inbreeding. Get it?
In case you've been up all night wondering if Heather Morris from "Glee" is actually being considered for the role of Buffy in the upcoming re-make/re-boot/re-whogivesashit then I'm happy to report you can finally sleep. She is being considered. Happy now?
In Real People News:
Here's a story about a dog in Germany who gave birth to 17 puppies! I have no idea if this is uncommon but I assume that if people write about it then it's weird. I can't imagine they would write stories about a dog who gives birth to one extra puppy or something.
And just in time for the holidays here's a story about a Yacht Club bar in Rhode Island that was robbed by a guy dressed up as Santa. This all sounds very classy and sad at the same time.
