I've never hidden my love for Norway. I've never been there but I assume it's mostly made up of Vikings and Black Metal fans running around in corpse paint. Well here's the trailer for the new zombie flick "Dark Souls" which is from the land of of the burning storm and it includes neither off these things but still looks pretty bad ass. And if you're wondering yes I did make up "land of the burning storm" and yes I will sue anyone who uses it.
With "Battle: Los Angeles" in the books producer Neal Moritz has his eye on a new film titled "Agent Ox". Nothing is finalized but apparently the script revolves around an spy who's sent to an alien world where he must top stop their invasion on Earth. After that he's going to do a movie about the aftermath of an alien invasion on earth and the trilogy will be complete!
Michelle Rodriguez looks to have signed up to join the cast of "The Home", a new film about a man who's put into a nursing home where all is not right after he is almost killed during a terrible accident. Not sure yet of what her role will be but if I was a betting man I'd guess angry girl with a heart of gold and just a touch of spiciness.
Shane Abbess will direct a new sci-fi mind f'er titled "7th Day" about a group that's sent into space to start a colony. The production company is calling this "The Shining" in outer space which is weird because I think Jack Nicholson is way too old to join the space program. I guess that's why they invented CGI though. "Here's johnny! In space!" Trademark, Joe.
In Real People News:
Timothy Fattig is apparently a horror film maker but I can't find one damn movie he's worked on. I did find a story about the Arizona native being arrested after the decomposing body of his mother was found in his house though. So they might make a movie out of that. I know, I'm a glass half full kind of guy.
Little birdies are telling me that the trailer for "The Wolfman" will be hitting the internet today. However since I get up at the crack of dawn like an old man, it's not up yet. Check back for updates???
ABC is at the top of the heap when it comes to picking up "Clive Barker's Hotel", the series being written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. It also turns out that McG's production company is in talks to produce, with the possibility that old G might take a hand at directing down the line.
A movie that doesn't exist yet, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", has a release date set for August 27th, 2010. That's a little more than a year away.
Viking religious ceremony scares the crap out of residents in local park. I'd be scared too if that many giant gingery people were gathered in the same place all at once. They can only be up to no good.
On this day in history:
1191: Crusaders massacre 3,000 bound Muslim prisoners at Acre, after a breakdown in negotiations over payment of their ransom. The killings take place in full view of the army from which they were taken.
