In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Hammer exec Simon Oakes talks briefly of what is in store for the new Hammer films. While there are no real details to speak of, it's pretty exciting to see that the studio has quite a few projects in the works.
Selma Blair has been in a lot of movies over the years, but to me she'll always be that girl who made out with Buffy in that crappy teen movie where everyone dry humped. You know the one I'm talking about. Well now she's set to star in "Columbus Circle", a new flick where she'll play a girl who hasn't left her apartment in nearly 20 years who has to confront her fears when her neighbor is murdered. I look forward to not remembering her in this also. Unless she makes out with a girl from a crappy 90's TV show. The cast of "Charmed" I'm looking at you.
When a movie gets pushed back a couple weeks you take notice, but don't really get worried. When the Sam Raimi produced film "The Possession" gets pushed from a January release to August 31 then you start to think something might be up. The movie, which follows a couple kids who accidentally unleash a an evil spirit hell bent on their destruction, has already been pushed once before so nothing good can come of this. Although maybe Raimi just likes the summer months. They're so much happier.
Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to a new flicked currently titled "Spectral" which is being described as a grittier version of "Ghostbusters". The film comes from Ian Fried, a name I find on IMDB but I'm assuming it's not the same guy who was the voice of Timothy in "The Secret of NIMH". Although if it is I'm already a giant fan.
Think you're sick of exorcism films? Well think again my friends because none other than Nicolas Cage is being courted for a new film "The Quiet Ones". The film is based on the real life happenings of a team of Cambridge academics in the 1970's who record their investigation as they attempt to exorcise a poltergeist from a young girl. Didn't I blow your mind this time? Didn't I?
In Real People News:
Watching "Dexter" pretty much gives you all the tools you'd need to carry out a good old fashioned murder. But who has time to go to the store and get one of those rubber suits? So you improvise! Like this woman in LA who covered herself in bubble wrap before she attempted to kill her ex-lover. It's like something you'd learn on one of those craft shows on PBS Sunday mornings.
Dealing with drive up tellers at the bank can be a real bummer. Especially when they're all pissy and act like pricks. So why not do like this man in Florida and take a leak in the pneumatic tube. I know what you're thinking. How the hell do I know what they call that tube you shoot your money over to the bank in? I'm not just a pile of good looks folks.
