Horror Headlines 2/26/08

It looks as if J.J. Abrams href="http://www.cinematical.com/2007/02/25/nycc-report-stephen-king-
talks-dark-tower-comic-feature-film-p/" target="_blank">is going to be adapting "The Dark Tower" series from Stephen King. Is it too soon to start calling him Hollywood's "Golden Boy"?

May 22nd, 2009, is the release date that Warner Bro's has set for "Terminator Salvation: The Future Beings". There... can we stop talking about it now? At least for a little while? Eh, who am I kidding, we'll be posting about it again tomorrow.

Two men target="_blank">were stabbed by a crazy dude at a screening of "The Signal" this weekend, a film about a transmission that makes people go insane. The attack seems completely random. Afterwards, the film was paused, and when it was started back up, the next scene involved a stabbing. Freaky!

Here's another target="_blank">supposed spoiler pic for "The X-Files 2". You'll recall the previous werewolf photo, and the studio denials that followed. I haven't clicked on the link because I don't want any spoilers, so if you decide to click, do so at your own risk.

Scoutt Taylor Compton has reportedly been approached about being in the "Friday the 13th" remake, although nothing is yet set in stone. You'll remember Scout as Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's "Halloween", and you'll also see her in the upcoming straight to video "April Fool's Day" remake... which pretty much guaruntees I'll shutter every time I hear her name from now on.

In Real People News: 

A Buddhist monk has been chopped to pieces by a lawnmower after href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?
in_article_id=518499&in_page_id=1770" target="_blank">losing control of it while cutting some grass. A woman reportedly found him "in pieces". The worst part? Years earlier he had lost three of his fingers in a similar accident... Maybe it's just me but, don't you think he would have learned a little about operating a lawnmower after that? I'm just saying.

On this day in history: 

1815: Napoleon Bonaparte slips past guards and escapes from his exile on the island of Elba, returning to France meeting very little resistance. One Hundred Days of rule follow, culminating in his defeat at Waterloo.
