If you're a fan of Platinum Dunes remakes then prepare to get pumped! The gang expects to have a script ready for a remake of the childhood classic "Monster Squad" sometime this week. For those of you who aren't fans though I'd like to invite you over to my apartment for a delightful buffet style lunch this afternoon.

Chan-wook Park's first English language film "Stoker" now has a leading lady with Mia Wasikowska landing the role of a girl who has to deal with a strange uncle who shows up after her fathers passing. Unfortunately Wasikowska hasn't really appeared in any really ridiculous films so I'm drawing a blank on sarcastic comments. Sorry folks.

NBC has picked up the pilot for "Grimm", a cop drama that takes place in a world where characters based on the Brothers Grimm's stories are real. The show will be produced by some of the same folks that brought you "Angel" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" which I will not hold against it because it actually sounds like a cool idea.

How have we gone this long without another Gingerdead Man movie? Hell if I know but after seeing the trailer for "Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver", yes it's got a disco theme, I feel like a giant hole in my heart that I didn't even know was there has been filled. That and I feel kind of gassy, but mostly the hole filled thing.

In Real People News: 

Hanging out at parks to watch women run because you like to see things "jiggle" is creepy yes but not illegal, yet. What is illegal though is going one step further and pretending to trip so you can shove your face in woman's asses. Honestly this is a complete surprise and you'll never prove I... I mean he didn't really trip.

I think most of us got to skip school once or twice in our lives to go do something fun with out parents. Some of us went to a ballgame, others took a day trip to the city and two lucky young tikes in Georgia robbed a bank with their mother. We all have different ways of bonding with our families.

Where do Werewolves go when they die? For decades we thought we'd never know. But the film "Zombie Werewolves Attack", which was just picked up by Troma for distribution, is here to give us answers. They turn into Zombies, that's the answer. You should have figured that out by title alone.

Christian E. Christiansen, a guy who's most notable credit is a Danish series called "Mikkel og guldkortet", is rumored to be the next in line to direct the "Hellraiser" remake. Fret not though, Amber Heard is also rumored to be landing a role in the film and she's famous for, well being hot and stuff.

Mia Wasikowska, who you all remember as Alice from the "Alice in Wonderland" has been offered a role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Bradley Cooper has apparently also been offered a role so I'm officially declaring today's news the hunkiest in BGH history.

Finally last night at the 2010 Scream Awards the trailer for "Scream 4" apparently premiered and thanks to the power of cell phones there's now 100 youtube videos of the trailer with tons of crowd noise. Enjoy!

In Real People News: 

I consider myself to be a sensitive guy but this sounds like the worst idea ever imagined. Air New Zealand is planning on rolling out a "cuddle class" next year which would put couples in seats the fold down so the love birds can snuggle during the flight. Congratulations New Zealand, you just found another reason while I'll never visit you.

On this day in history: 

1898 - The American flag was raised in Puerto Rico shortly before Spain formally relinquished control of the island to the United States.
