Word around campus is that Neil Marshall will direct the film adaptation of the graphic novel "Kong: King Of Skull Island". The story is set after the original tale of King Kong and follows the events after Kong's body had disappeared. I have nothing sarcastic to say about this because it sounds awesome. I will though point out how ridiculous it sounded when Tim Curry said "gorilla" in 1995's "Congo".
I have absolutely no idea how the movie business works. I say this because Dimension films has just picked up the rights to "Horns", the big screen adaption of the Joe Hill novel starring Daniel Radcliffe. This confuses me because the film has been in the works for a while now and I assume has wrapped on filming so why the hell is it it just getting picked up? I mean I get it when it's some B-movie softcore porn flick but this is Harry Potter. Someone explain this to me? I don't understand things.
Screen Gems has bought the rights to "The Unsacred", a new supernatural thriller from writer Amanda Gusack. You might know her from the 2005 horror film "In Memorium" but most likely you recognize the name from my one man all drag stage show based on the life of John Cusack. Think about it for a second, it makes total sense.
Jason Blum, the guy who's produced every horror movie you've scene in the past 10 years, is teaming up with Kevin McCormick to bring "White Smoke" to life. As you might have guessed by the title the project will follow a number of spooky time events that put the Vatican on its heels. No word yet on when the project will see the light of day but Jeff Richard and Mark Bianculli are lined up to pen the script for the project. Priests, they're so hot right now.
I've wanted to punch a lot of people in the face over the past 35 years but I'll be the first one to admit that this California guy who punched a young convenience store worker because he didn't have enough money for his $1.41 cigar might have gone too far. Alright, he 100% did. You got me.
Liev Shrieber confirms in an interview that he will not be returning for "Scream IV" since his character was killed off. And here I was thinking some convoluted 'oh he survived!' plot would be a good fit for the "Scream" franchise.
Chloe Moretz, star of the upcoming remake "Let Me In", gives us the scoop on the art direction for the film. Thankfully, Chloe assures us that their vampires "aren't cool".
Screen Gems have begun to leak their info on the upcoming "Quarantine 2" with the announcement that they've hired John Pogue to write and direct as well as their plans to take the sequel in a different direction than its Spanish original.
