The Fog Star Adrienne Barbeau Refused To Be In The Devil’s Rejects

One thing that can always be expected in a Rob Zombie film is that he often uses horror genre icons and veterans. A great example of this is his 2005 effort The Devil’s Rejects. The House of 1000 Corpses sequel features appearances from stars like Ken Foree, Michael Berryman and P.J. Soles among others, but it turns out that one very interesting actress actually refused to be in the film – none other than Adrienne Barbeau.

She’s a fabulous scream queen you may recognize from the works of John Carpenter like Escape From New York and The Fog, while she also played a role in George Romero’s Creepshow. But according to Barbeau, who recently spoke with Tom Holland’s Terror Time, she wasn’t too interested in taking on The Devil’s Rejects.

“I’ve turned down myriad roles. Sometimes after reading 20 pages of the script. And especially if

Adrienne Barbeau Would Love to Return as Stevie from John Carpenter’s The Fog

One of my favorite John Carpenter movies is The Fog, his followup to Halloween. The movie has more than it’s fair share of issues, but the visuals and the score are beyond badass. And with all of the classic films getting reboots, sequels, and TV series it only seems like a matter of time before […]

  • MUBI

It sways gently, showing five minutes before midnight. With laconic eyes and the careful accentuation of a raconteur, Mr. Michen (John Houseman) recounts to a gaggle of kids the moribund story of the Elizabeth Dane, a clipper ship captained by a wealthy man named Blake who had leprosy, and who wanted to set up a leper colony in Northern California. The ship, beset by a sudden fog bank, sailed towards a campfire mistaken for a lighthouse and crashed into the rocks. None survived. The story, which has been passed down from grandfathers to fathers to sons,

The Cannonball Run remake has a director in Rawson Thurber

Warner Bros. Pictures have set Rawson Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers) to direct its Cannonball Run remake. The studio has also set comedy writers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at the Museum franchise) to write the script, so reports Deadline.

The film is a relaunch of the 1981 Burt Reynolds classic which revolved around an illegal car race from New York to California, a cameo-ridden comedy that also featured the talents of Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Adrienne Barbeau, Dean Martin, Jackie Chan, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dom DeLuise.

It is thought that the new film will be titled simply Cannonball.

Thurber will next team with Dwayne Johnson for Skyscraper, and this project will possibly follow.

Here’s the trailer for the first movie.

Robert Rodriguez to Helm Escape From New York Remake?

We haven't heard much about the Escape from New York remake since Fox picked up the rights to reboot the franchise back in early 2015, but now it's being reported that Robert Rodriguez is in talks to take the directing reins on the project.

According to THR, Rodriguez (Planet Terror, From Dusk Till Dawn) is in discussions to direct the Escape from New York remake for 20th Century Fox, with John Carpenter—the director of the original film and its 1996 sequel (Escape from L.A.)—on board as an executive producer with considerable creative input on the project (he's also doing something similar in the Michael Myers franchise by executive producing the new Halloween movie). On Facebook, Carpenter shared his excitement for Rodriguez's potential involvement, writing, "I am thrilled. He is a great director."

The remake will also be produced by Picture Co.'s Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, and it's believed

Jeepers Creepers 3 Brings in 80s Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau

Jeepers Creepers 3 Brings in 80s Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau
Just a few days ago, production started on the highly-anticipated horror sequel Jeepers Creepers 3, which was previously known as Cathedral. The actually title has yet to be confirmed. There had been rumors that Gina Phillips, who starred in the first Jeepers Creepers as Trish Jenner, was returning, and that Ray Wise will reprise his role as Jack Taggert Sr. Today the full cast list has surfaced, confirming Gina Phillips' return, along with the franchise debut of genre legend Adrienne Barbeau.

Cinema Runner got a hold of the cast list, which reveals that Adrienne Barbeau is playing a character named Gaylen Brandon, although no details for her role were given. Gina Phillips is also coming back, along with the previously-confirmed Jonathan Breck as The Creeper himself. But this cast list doesn't include Ray Wise, so he's likely not coming back, unless it's in a surprise cameo.

The cast also includes Stan Shaw as Sheriff Tashtego,

Fritz Weaver Has Passed Away

  • DailyDead
Some very sad news is making the rounds today, as it has been reported that Fritz Weaver has passed away at the age of 90.

News of Fritz Weaver's passing was confirmed by Weaver's son-in-law, Bruce Ostler, according to The New York Times. In addition to winning a Tony award for his performance in 1970's Child’s Play, Weaver accumulated an impressive number of acting credits within the horror and sci-fi genres—on both the big and small screens—throughout his career.

How Horror Movies Helped Me Grow Up in a Single-Parent Home

  • DailyDead
First of all, before I start this, I just want to point out that my childhood, despite various factors, was still really great and I’m truly grateful that I grew up the way that I did. My circumstances allowed me to learn a lot and grow to be fiercely independent, and much of that is still something that I carry with me. But the reality is that I did grow up in a home with only a single mom (for most of the time), which meant my childhood was a lot different than many kids I grew up with. And at times, I felt like the odd girl out—but all that changed when I really got into horror.

I spent the first 14 years of my life living in a trailer park in Des Plaines, Illinois, practically a stone’s throw away from the O’Hare International Airport. We
