If you're planning to attend the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival this year, you should definitely check out the the so-called "First Look" screening of the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed action flick "Predators", a film I'm still on the proverbial fence about. Topher Grace and Adrien Brody? Really?
Speaking of Adrien Brody, talented direct Vincenzo Natali's highly-anticipated monster movie "Splice" is set to terrify audiences on June 4th. It's always nice to have a potentially nifty horror flick scheduled for a summer release.
Although I have my doubts as to whether or not this project will ever get off the ground, it would appear that Todd McFarlane is still spreading rumors that another "Spawn" film is in the works. I'm excited about the idea as much as the next nerd, but I'm not going to hold my breath. No sense setting myself up for soul-crushing disappointment.
Cormac McCarthy's adaptation of his novel "The Road" gets a release date in October. Word is they're pushing for an Oscar, hence the pushback from last November. The film Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortenson, Guy Pearce, Robert Duvall and more star in "a post-apocalyptic tale of a man and his son trying to survive by any means possible".
John Harrison's adaptation of Clive Barker's "Book of Blood" is going to debut on the SyFy channel. Oh boy, that can't possibly be a good thing, can it? That's what he told a crowd at a convention this past weekend, as well as mentioning that September will probably be the target for the debut.
Todd McFarlane has 5 offers on the table to do a "Spawn" remake, but the caveat is that he wants to direct. We all know how the first "Spawn" movie turned out, what do you guys think?
Katie Cassidy joins the cast of "A Nightmare on Elm St.", the remake. I'm not familiar with her work but from the pictures I see online, I can confidently deduce that she's super hot. So, she's got that going for her.
Warner Bro's will be releasing the American remake of "Death Note", a property based on a Manga and made into a live-action film in Japan. Vertigo films will be producing.
