Horror Headlines: Thursday, June 14th, 2012
This morning my heart hurts. I don't mean like boohoo I just wanted "Titanic" and now I'm sad I mean my heart is actually in pain. I'm pretty sure it's all the coffee I drink finally catching up with me. In the past 48 hours I've had 4 giant coffees, a handful of peanuts and a sandwich. That can't be good for your system.
Word around town is that Will Smith is not so officially involved with "I Am Legend 2" as we thought he was. Well I actually didn't know they were making a sequel so I guess I didn't think anything. But you get the idea. In a recent interview Big Willy said he has no involvement with the project right now but may if the script turns out to be great. What a magical world it would be if we could all call our boss every morning and say I'm not really into work today but if it turns out to be fun there give me a ring and I'll head in. But maybe not.
"In the Dark" is a new horror anthology and today we've got some exciting casting news for one if its sequences titled "To Be Loved". Gwendolyn Sweet, whom the 15 people that still subscribe to Playboy will recognize as a model of theirs, will play the lead in the chapter that follows a young lass who looks to be sweet and innocent on the outside but has a dark twisted side that comes out behind closed doors. Full disclosure here, I subscribed to Playboy for close to ten years and for the past 2 years they call me at least once a month asking me to come back. It's pretty funny to listen to a 75 year old woman ask me about my Playboy subscription. I recommend it to everyone.
There's really nothing funny about The West Memphis Three. A true life story about 3 teens who were imprisoned for close to 10 years for a murder they didn't commit. The film about the whole ordeal titled "Devil's Knot" is in the works and today we've learned that both Dane DeHaan and Amy Ryan have been added to the cast. I mean "Devil's Knot" is kind of funny, cause you know it sounds like a porn. But other than that this is 100% serious.
Kathy Baker will always hold a special place in my heart as the slutty chick who wanted to bang Edward Scissorhands really bad. I didn't get out much as a kid. And now she's been cast in the film "Model Home" along side Monique Gabriela Curnen. The flick tells the story of a single mother who's recruited to live in unsold homes and finds herself entertaining dangerous thoughts. I have no fond memories of Monique but the first girl who saw me nude had that same name and she had weird sunken eyes so that's something I guess.
Apparently there's some kind of video out there called "1 lunatic, 1ice pick" and a Canadian high school teacher showed it to her class. She's been suspended without pay. That's all I want to know about this.
A 68 year old man from New York apparently exposed himself to a pool full of vacationers at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge in Florida this past Monday. So if you've always been skeptical of the "Happiest Place On Earth" tag because there was never any old man balls in Disney you might want to think about planning a trip.
