Horror Headlines 3/4/08

It's being reported that Platinum Dunes is now going to be remaking "Rosemary's Baby", the 1968 film starring Mia Farrow. These guys won't stop until they've remade EVERYTHING. I'm still crossing my fingers for the "Ghoulies Go To College" redux.

FOX is prepping a pilot titled "Inseparable", which is being described as target="_blank">modern day Jekyl and Hyde story. And this time they're not even waiting until their new show about the supernatural lawyer gets cancelled. I'm so proud!

The Crispin Glover vehicle (that's an odd sentence) "I Scream Man", about (you guessed it) an ice cream man slasher, has been delayed for both "financial and legal" reasons. Glover himself href="http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=3&id=49550"
target="_blank">remains enthusiastic, but it's not looking good for this flick at the moment.

Alison Lohman has officially filled Ellen Paige's shoes as the lead in Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell". So, those worried about the production filling the "jail bait" quotient in Paige's absence can rest easy.

NBC has released a full list of href="http://joblo.com/arrow/index.php?id=11306"
target="_blank">directors and synopses for their summer fright fest "FEAR Itself", which you'll recall is the is the new incarnation of Showtime's "Masters of Horror". So, are we excited yet?

Frank Henenlotter's next film, "Bad Biology", has been reviewed href="http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/11475" target="_blank">very positively. If you're in the mood for a trip, hit up Ebay and try
and find a copy of "Brain Damage". It's one of the strangest and most
disgusting films I've ever seen... so if "Biology" is anything like that
(or "Basketcase" for that matter) I'm sure it will kick ass.

In another attempt to make me love him even more, Uwe Boll href="http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/11468" target="_blank">has decided to release his offensive gem "Postal" in theaters opposite "Indiana Jones". The announcing statement comes complete with broken English smack talk against Spielberg... Priceless!

In Real People News: 

Today in the "Final Destination" department... a father of two died recently while cooking for his children, after the reactionary jerk from burning his hand target="_blank">caused him to stab himself in the heart with a kitchen knife. I wasn't there, but I've got money that "Rocky Mountain High" was playing in the background. Care to wager?

If you're so angry, that you can't even make it to your Anger Management class without target="_blank">punching a woman in the face, it may be time to re-evaluate your life. Just saying.

On this day in history: 

1966: Lennon claims that The Beatles are "more popular than Jesus", and that "Christianity will... vanish and shrink".
