Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 21st, 2010

"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller has a secret up his sleeve; he's been writing horror scripts on the sly! Using the nom de plume Ted Foulke, Miller is now shopping his scripts for "Stoker" and its prequel, "Uncle Charly". Both films have Fox Searchlight as well as Jodie Foster interested.

Behind the scenes footage of "Scream IV" is starting to arrive online! Though the pictures don't show much as far as details, we can at least deduce that yes, this is actually happening.

Sam Raimi is going to further test his comic adaptation skillz by signing on to direct Radical Comics "Earp", a futuristic tale of the O.K. Corral gunfight.

In Real People News: 

Has former VP Dick Cheney become a member of the undead? If you were to check his pulse after his new ventricular assist devices were installed on his heart this week, you might thing so! Do to the pumps creating a constant flow of blood, the blood flow becomes a constant stream as opposed to a systolic beat. Zombie Cheney says "Ooooooil...."

An NYC paramedic was accused last year of ignoring a dying pregnant woman last year because he was on his coffee break. This week he learns that karma is a bitch when he was gunned down in front of a night club. At least he has time for an extra cup of coffee on his extended break.

On this day in history: 

1972 - In Milwaukee, George Carlin is arrested for obscenity and disorderly conduct for performing his "Seven Dirty Words" routine in front of a group of wheelchair-bound children. He is released after posting $150 bail.

Nick Simmons "Incarnate" #1

I'll admit it; I'm a fan of Gene Simmons Family Jewels. It's scripted as all get out but it's worth a laugh. As Gene's son, Nick Simmons gets a lot of airtime and as it is supposed to be a 'reality' show, Nick's efforts at becoming a published Comic author get a lot of screen time. They've bandied about the coming of "Incarnate" for quite some time so naturally, I've been pretty curious.

Comics: Hotwire #3

I came into this four issue mini late, but not too late thankfully. Perhaps just in time. Based on a short story by comic madman Warren Ellis, "Hotwire" has a lot of creep and edgy futuristic weirdness going for it.

Ghosts. The cities of the future have grown ankle-deep in them as they graze off the electromagnetic waste of a billion wireless Internet connections. Most can only drift, witless and lost. Rarely, though, something comes through with enough marbles to cause real trouble.
