5 Things You Didn’t Know About Stephen King’s ‘Pet Sematary’ (Guest Blog)

29 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In 2011, we ventured to northern Maine to see some of the filming locations for the 1989 cult horror classic “Pet Sematary,” the movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s 1983 novel about animals that come back from the dead, which Mary Lambert directed from King’s own screenplay. As lifelong King and horror film fans, this particular trip represented a kind of pilgrimage for us. We knew the drive would be long (well over five hours just to get there), but we knew it would be worth it. Prior to reaching Maine, we had no ambitions other than to find the locations and. »

The Dark Tower Lands Vikings Star Katheryn Winnick

28 April 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During its CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas earlier this month, Sony Pictures confirmed that production has gotten under way on the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. While most of the main cast is already in place, it's never too late to add even more cast members, with two new actors signing on today. Vikings star Katheryn Winnick has come aboard in an unspecified role, while Michael Barbieri has also joined the cast as young Timmy. While we'll have to wait and see who Katheryn Winnick is playing, the casting of Timmy could signal that the adaptation will make some major changes from the novel series.

Variety has word of Katheryn Winnick's casting, while Deadline broke the news on Michael Barbieri. In Stephen King's The Dark Tower book series, Timmy is a good friend of Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), although he doesn't show up until the third book, »

'He Was a Fair Guvnor': Electrician Who Worked on 'The Shining' Recalls Stanley Kubrick's Obsessive Techniques

28 April 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The level of obsession inspired by "The Shining" is almost unparalleled. "Star Wars" fans will line up for days, even weeks to catch a glimpse of the latest trip to a galaxy far, far away, but Stanley Kubrick's endlessly unsettling adaptation of Stephen King's novel of the same name has been picked apart from every interpretive angle imaginable — with viewers still disagreeing over how valid any of them are. (If you know not of what I speak, look up Rodney Ascher's "Room 237.") In the latest example of "Shining" obsession, The Guardian has published a first-person account written by an electrician who worked on the film as part of its "A touch with greatness" series. Among Bob Tanswell's memories are Kubrick's chess prowess, Jack Nicholson's ability to drive the director crazy and being asked to drop trou as an extra in a famously bizarre scene. Read »

With production underway on The Dark Tower, the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s epic fantasy series has added two new names to its cast, with Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) and Michael Barbieri (Little Men) joining the movie.

Winnick’s role is being kept under wraps, but Deadline is reporting that 14-year-old Barbieri is to play Timmy, “an offbeat pal to the Jake Chambers character.”

Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) is directing The Dark Tower, which is set to star Idris Elba (Luther) as Roland the Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar) as the Man in Black, Tom Taylor (Doctor Foster) as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Tirana, Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Pimli and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as Richard Sayre.

The Omen Prequel Is Happening at 20th Century Fox

28 April 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The problem with most prequels is that the original never intended to show you what happened before the events deemed worthy enough to depict in a movie. But that isn't stopping the brain trust at 20th Century Fox from moving forward on The First Omen, a precursor to the 1976 classic that introduced Damien to the world. Antonio Campos, who made waves with his Sundance hit Christine (not a Stephen King remake) is in talks to direct.

A grown-up Damien is at the center of a new A&E horror series that debuted earlier this year, and 20th Century Fox already blew it with their critically panned remake of The Omen in 2006. So they're taking this long-standing horror franchise in a totally new direction. This next movie is produced by David Goyer and Kevin Turen under their Phantom Four banner. There are no story details. The movie will tell what happened »

Glenn Hauman: Neil Gaiman Does Not Need A Pity Hugo

28 April 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Remember this class act, America?

This is Jeff Gillooly. You may remember him from the 90’s. He “masterminded” the hit on Nancy Kerrigan’s knee on the eve of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in 1994, to prevent Kerrigan from skating and making the U.S. Olympic Team, for the benefit of his ex-wife, Tonya Harding.

What does this have to do with the Hugo Awards? Well, it should be obvious. Theodore Beale, by slating again with his Rabid Puppies, has decided to kneecap the 2016 Hugo Awards… and just to add to the fun, this time he’s trying to create poison pills by nominating famous authors in some categories, so he can take the credit if they win, and cry persecution if they are rejected with the rest of his slate.

John Scalzi, talking about the Hugo mess on his blog, takes the position:

Watch Fran Kranz spit Shakespearean insults at you

28 April 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fran Kranz was nervous about taking on Shakespeare for Joss Whedon. The Buffy creator’s charming film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing has received tons of praise, including for Kranz’s performance as Claudio, but at the time when the 12-day, secret production of the film was about to start, Kranz was nervous. “I maybe had lost a little of confidence with the language,” said Kranz, who had performed in several Shakespeare productions in high school and at Yale University but not yet professionally. It was Whedon and the intimate way he shot the film — in his own house, a familiar place to his friends and frequent collaborators — that Kranz says calmed his nerves and reinstilled in him confidence with the Bard’s words. Whedon filmed his take on the comedy at his Santa Monica, CA home after having hosted evenings of Shakespeare readings with his friends there for several years. »

The Dark Tower Movie Just Cast This Vikings Star

28 April 2016 3:25 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Dark Tower is looming, as production has already started on the Hollywood adaptation of Stephen King's seminal work. With key figures starting to fall into place, the battle across Mid-World is going to finally find its way to the big screen. Though there are still some key roles that need to be filled, and Vikings' star / Captain Marvel hopeful Katheryn Winnick may have just filled one such vacancy. Variety reports that the actor best known for her role as Lagertha on the smash-hit History Channel show has been cast in a role in The Dark Tower, though an exact role was not mentioned. Katheryn Winnick's casting is the second female cast-member that the film has taken on so far, as Mad Max: Fury Road star Abbey Lee was previously cast as Tirana. With all the secrecy surrounding the film, trying to narrow down Winnick's role is a bit difficult, »
