"This script is terrible and only the guy who co-wrote 'Predators' can fix it". Something I never thought would be said but apparently someone at Paramount uttered those fateful words because Michael Finch has been picked up to re-write the script for "Hellified", a new film about a group of criminals sent to Hell to stop the end of the world. He's kind of like a superman for movie scripts you aren't going to like.
John C. Reilly can do no wrong in my eyes. Alright I'll admit I never saw that movie where he plays a vampire who runs a carnival, or something like that, but everything I've seen him in has been pure gold. So I'm excited for "Life After Beth", a new zombie comedy flick he's going to star in along with Aubrey Plaza, the depressing girl from "Parks and Recreation". The film is based off of a UK short and will be 100 times better because Reilly is American and we don't drink tea.
According to James Franco himself he probably won't have a role in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" after some shifts at Fox's big boy table. Nothings confirmed but Franco had apparently had a small role in the sequel but is now fairly sure the part has been cut. He then went on to say nobody calls him anymore and he's so lonely. He then sobbed uncontrollably for 45 minutes.
I don't know where the hell this came from but "The American Scream" is now available on DVD and it sounds pretty awesome. The documentary follows 3 different families as they transform their homes into spooky time attractions for the Halloween season. Sounds like a dandy Christmas gift for that special someone on your list. Wait, next week is Christmas? Where the hell have I been!?
When the BGH Crew began discussing its nominations for its list of the top ten horror films of the year, one thing became rather obvious. While it's been a year filled with lots of quality horror films -- indeed, some might even say risky films -- there wasn't that one movie that broke away from the crowd to truly establish itself as the best.
A trailer for the new season of the VH1 show "Scream Queens" is online and to be honest is a little disappointing. The contestants will once again compete for a role in the next "Saw" film but no James Gunn this season and from what I can tell no ridiculously over sized fakes breasts. Really I could have let the James Gunn thing go but I'm not sure if I can get past the other.
Do you know what goes good with grapes? A pair of angry black widow spiders. I always knew that Whole Foods was plotting to destroy mankind, though until now it was unclear as to how they would achieve this goal. Well played, you healthy bastards.
It's a new week, that means a new "Predators" character profile. This week you can sneak a peek at Danny Trejo as "Cuchillo".
"Scream IV" makes the news blurbs once again, this time with a bit of a blast from the past. Rumors are starting to float that "Friday the 13th" vet Adrienne King will be in the film. While nothing has been said of the role, my own bet is that we'll see Ms. King in the film's traditional opening montage started by Drew Barrymore.
If you've been patiently waiting for another Paul Bettany fix in his upcoming vampire feature "Priest", prepare to be disappointed. Bumped recently to January 2011 in order to cash in on this whole 3-D craze, the film has now been bumped even further until March 2011. Continued delays? Always a good sign.
TBS has made a lot of waves lately with their recent Conan O'Brian announcement, but that's not the only news the soon to be major cable player has up its sleeve. In June, they will be bringing us a bit of animated horror comedy with their newly announced series "Neighbors from Hell". Think your neighbors are bad? They can't be as bad as the Hellmans, hailing straight from the netherworld. Hellmans... get it?
The first high res shots of Josh Brolin as "Jonah Hex" have appeared online. Looking true to character, I still think the movie would be more exciting if we didn't have to mention it also starred Megan Fox.
In Real People News:
Justin.tv makes the news this week as a 19 year old San Francisco male broadcasts his suicide to hundreds of spectators. Feeling guilty for egging him on, the forum moderator where the 19 year old left his suicide note called the local authorities as the viewers watched the police break in on camera to recover the body.
Lake Tahoe police feared a terrorist event when they caught a 60 year old man parked in a no parking zone. During their investigation, they found a wire with an attached on/off switch in his pocket leading to his anal cavity. It turns out, the wire just lead to the man's vibrating butt plug.
On this day in history:
1910 - American original Mark Twain dies of heart failure in Redding, CT.
The 90's, a time of wonder and mystery. Grunge was king, flannel was hip and Danny Glover was America's dance king. Don't remember that last one? Well take a look at the video below which recently surfaced from the archives. In it you'll see Sir Gloves-Alot kicking it old school along with his stable of Predator hoes on the set of "Predator 2". I don't know why it took so long for this to come out but I hope there's more. In fact I hope we'll see a rap battle between Glover, Mel Gibson and Joe Pesci from the set of "Lethal Weapon 3" sometime soon.
