Joss Whedon's "Cabin in the Woods" gets bumped ALL the way to January 2010, and in the meantime will be "converted" into 3D. An interesting move considering we don't even fully know what the film's about yet. Thoughts?

Bored at work today? Got the day off? Check out The Jigsaw Game. Should be good for freaking out your co-workers.

If you're interested in Platinum Dunes' remake of "A Nightmare on Elm St.", visit their Twitter page for updates including behind the scenes set photos, beginning today.

In Real People News: 

This guy sounds like a real life "Maniac Cop". You know, only without Bruce Campbell and all the campiness.

Mmmm... nothing sounds better while you're eating breakfast than a heaping helping of Sea Mucus. Gross.

The famous gun-toting soccer mom who made headlines recently for her love of her handgun, has been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide. I believe the phrase you were looking for is, "holy shit, that's ironic!"

On this day in history: 

1978: Former Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious stabs girlfriend Nancy Spungen to death in room 100 of New York's Chelsea Hotel. Because Sid remembers nothing about the crime, theories include robbery and an abortive suicide pact. Vicious dies of an ugly heroin overdose shortly before his trial.

Joss Whedon was offered and turned down a chance to work on the "new" "Buffy the Vampire" slayer film which is in development, which is reportedly a remake of the original film. Apparently producers were a little surprised at the level of negative buzz their announcement created amongst Buffy fans (really?), and so they tried to get Whedon in on the action. He wasn't biting, and so presumably they'll be going ahead with development as planned.

"Dead Bones" is a short Horror/Western that you can watch in its entirety at the link. It has gotten good buzz so far, and also stars Ken Foree, who is so fun to watch on screen he actually makes about :30 seconds of the "Halloween" remake watchable. So, your move, partner.

Reason to upgrade to Bluray: All of the special features for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will only be found on the newfangled medium. Also in today's news, the collection to "Buy Eric a Bluray Player" has officially begun. Line forms to the left.

Via his Myspace, Richard Kelly confirms that there will be a panel for his upcoming film "The Box" at the next Comic-Con. He adds, cryptically, "More news on The Box and Darko projects soon". Darko projects? Is it possible he'll be erasing the horrible taste left in my mouth from "S. Darko"? Stay tuned to find out.

In Real People News: 

Woman dies from an acute case of "Assface". And by that I mean, complications from plastic surgery involving injecting fat from her ass into her face. But ya, I like "Assface" better.

I've never really been to therapy, but I'm reasonably sure that it shouldn't involve sticking toilet brushes up people's asses. The more you know, people.

On this day in history: 

1999: Nicholas Vitalich is arrested outside a supermarket in San Diego, California for slapping his girlfriend upside the head with a large tuna. Vitalich is booked for assault with a deadly weapon
