We’re back with another horror/sci-fi news round-up. This time around, we focus on John Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record release, the hiring of a new writer for one of the stand-alone Star Wars films, and an unpredictable new cast addition for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV series.
It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan’s lair. John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.
The nine tracks on Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don’t come from iconic films, but they will likely have listeners watching »

Nick Jonas (“Kingdom”) has been cast in a recurring role in “Scream Queens,” a new comedy-horror anthology series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto, the executive producers of “Glee” and “American Horror Story.” Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Emma Roberts (“American Horror Story: Freak Show”), Joe Manganiello (“True Blood,” Magic Mike Xxl),…
Professional power-stance proponent Nick Jonas is taking his talents to Fox's college-set horror-comedy Scream Queens, according to THR. He'll play a recurring role that has virtually no other details available yet. (And maybe that's best, because for the next few weeks we can guess his role: frat-boy sports king, pop-music student who wants to make straightforward music videos, Marquis de Sade–obsessed English major-cum-sociopath, "Bio Student No. 3," etc.) He joins Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ariana Grande, all of whom are also onboard for Ryan Murphy's next 15-episode anthology. The series' first season, slated for fall, will focus on a university campus rattled by a string of murders, so there's lots of room for Jonas to do potentially horrible or heroic things. (Maybe both?) »

In 2004, four ambitious Hispanic high schoolers in Phoenix—three of them undocumented immigrants, all of them underdogs with limited resources and prospects—defeated MIT's brightest (and better-bankrolled) in an underwater-robotics competition. Already the subject of a documentary last year, Soul Surfer director Sean McNamara's family-friendly frivolity shoehorns the incredible true story into a formulaic Stand and Deliver knockoff with no rough edges and the production values of an after-school special. George Lopez certainly doesn't have the acting chops of an Edward James Olmos, but his sincerity resonates as the substitute teacher and former engineer who coaches the kids to victory, while Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis phone in their re »

Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.
Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.
The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »
