Witches Return For "Charmed"

13 April 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Development continues on a CBS TV pilot reboot of "Charmed", the bewitching drama that ended in 2006 after eight seasons.

The project will be written by Chris Keyser ("Party of Five") and Sydney Sidner, and will reimagine producer Aaron Spelling's series that previously starred Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan.

"...'Charmed' follows three sisters, known as the 'Charmed Ones', the most powerful good witches of all time, whose destiny is to protect innocent lives from evil beings such as demons and 'warlocks'.

"Each sister possesses unique magical powers that grow and evolve, while they attempt to maintain normal lives in modern day San Francisco. Keeping their supernatural identities separate and secret from their ordinary lives often becomes a challenge for them, with the exposure of magic having far-reaching consequences on their various relationships and resulting in a number of police and FBI investigations. »

‘Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys’ to debut on Animal Planet

10 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Looking to get in on the Sharknado phenomenon, Animal Planet has set its own horror film from The Asylum – the same people behind that film, called Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys, set to premiere in the Us on Memorial Day weekend.

“There is absolutely nowhere to run, and no one is safe.”

Starring Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Jason Brooks (Days of Our Lives), Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys is directed by James Cullen Bressack (Hate Crime, Pernicious) and sees the cast battle lampreys – eel-like fish with huge teeth and funnel-shaped mouths – after they slide their way into the city’s sewer system and start terrorizing the residents of a small Michigan town.

Brooks plays Michael, a fish and wildlife expert who moves to the town with his wife, Cate (Doherty), after being summoned by the town mayor, Akerman (Lloyd »

There's something in the water, and it isn't just Sharks! First there was Brandon Slagle's Dead Sea. Now there's even more bloody Lamprey action coming in the form of Animal Planet's Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys (Directed by James Cullen Bressack). Read more about the film below.

About Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys:

Killer Lampreys to Suck Shannen Doherty and Christopher Lloyd to Death this Memorial Day

7 April 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It probably wouldn't surprise you to hear The Asylum has a new nature gone amok flick titled Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys starring Shannen Doherty and Christopher Lloyd premiering on TV this Memorial Day weekend.

What might surprise you is where you can see it. Not Syfy! These lampreys are prowling Animal Planet.

If Wil Wheaton and so many others got annoyed about the Discovery Channel airing a fake Megalodon documentary during Shark Week last year you have to wonder if they'll react negatively to Animal Planet suddenly getting in on the schlocky b-movie game with the producers of Sharknado. Maybe not, considering this tale of lethal lampreys on the attack is debuting as part of Animal Planet's third annual "Monster Week" (which really is a monster week given it lasts 9 days). According to the New York Post, this is the same offbeat week Animal Planet will »

Animal Planet’s Monster Week 2014 to include a Shannen Doherty horror film

7 April 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Animal Planet has gotten some flak in recent years for its “mockumentaries” about mermaids, which have been presented in a realistic format, albeit with quick disclaimers at the end indicating that they were more speculative than anything. For the network’s Monster Week 2014, Animal Planet can’t really be criticized in that regard for its new production Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys, which an Animal Planet release plainly indicates is a “horror film” (but they also do call it a “marquee two-hour special”). To further let you know that this program should not be taken as scientific fact, it … Continue reading →

A Heathers Sequel Was Originally Written to Star Meryl Streep

4 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Entertainment Weekly has a wonderful oral history of Heathers — with everything from the cast's mutual annoyance with a young ("bitchy") Shannen Doherty ("She didn’t realize it was a comedy, or maybe know what a dark comedy meant") to the unrequited romance between Winona Ryder and Christian Slater ("We never went out! He was dating Kim Walker. And I had, like, such a big crush on him"). There's also talk about the thwarted sequel plans, which, according to Heathers writer Daniel Waters, involved Meryl Streep and a grown-up Veronica Sawyer taking on Washington:Daniel Waters I did come up with this crazy, cockamamy Heathers 2 where Veronica becomes a page for a senator named Heather, played by Meryl Streep. The ending is her assassinating the president and getting away with it — and it’s a good thing. Winona Ryder First of all, I don’t know what their problem is with »

'Heathers': An oral history

4 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“Do you think there’s ever been another movie like Heathers?” Winona Ryder asks in her tiny, forever-a-kid voice, and then listens quietly. She’s genuinely curious. Your brain races through the obvious choices. Mean Girls, Clueless, Jawbreaker—teen-girl comedies with a drop of caustic in their lip gloss. But in 25 years, no high school movie has ever come close to the bloodthirsty wit and sweet-faced nihilism of Heathers, the 1989 satire about an Ohio high school where suicide becomes a scrunchie-level fad. “I looove this movie—to the point where I talk about it like I’m not even in it, »

'Heathers: The Musical' Is So Very, Because Obviously

3 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

'Heathers: The Musical' Is So Very, Because Obviously  There’s no damage here, Heather. By Naveen Kumar Dig up your scrunchies and dust off your croquet mallets, but leave the red ones for Heather Chandler if you want to survive at Westerburg High. Your favorite ‘80s cult-classic flick about teen cliques and serial murder is now an Off-Broadway musical, packing all the sweet, maniacal joy of a Slurpee-induced brain freeze. Based on Daniel Waters’ 1988 film starring Winona Ryder, Christian Salter, and Heather-for-life Shannen Doherty, the musical adaptation by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe doesn’t skimp on the camp (simulated piñata sex, anyone?) and goes toe to toe with the movie’s R rating for violence, profanity, and sex (oh, my!). Serving her own brand of classic Winona angst, Barrett Wilbert Weed plays Veronica Sawyer, our dry-witted everygirl heroine who becomes the latest recruit in her school’[...] »

'Heathers' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

28 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When it debuted on March 31, 1989, "Heathers" proved to be a box-office disappointment, failing to earn back even half of its $3 million budget. Twenty-five years later, it's a bona fide cult hit, with lines like "F*** me gently with a chainsaw" and "What is your damage?" a permanent part of pop culture.

Dozens of high-school comedies owe their existence to "Heathers," most notably "Mean Girls" (directed by Mark Waters, brother of "Heathers" scribe, Daniel Waters.)

A planned TV series failed to materialize, but a "Heathers" musical debuted in 2010 (awesomely, "Veronica Mars" star Kristen Bell did a reading), and an Off-Broadway production opens on March 31, exactly 25 years after the film first hit theaters.

We've followed the ups and downs of Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannen Doherty's careers over the years, but not all of the cast is still acting and, sadly, some were hit by tragedy as macabre as anything in the movie itself. »

'Heathers': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Darkly Comic Teen Classic

26 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's not that hard to believe that it's been 25 years since the release of "Heathers," on March 31, 1989.

Really, the movie seems like an artifact from a different era, one paradoxically bolder than our own. It's hard to imagine a movie getting made today that makes fun of teen suicide, schoolhouse violence, and the public grieving process that follows both. "Heathers"'s gleefully gruesome satire made stars out of Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannen Doherty, launched the careers of screenwriter Daniel Waters and director Michael Lehmann, and created the mold for subversive schoolgirl comedies to come, from "Clueless" to "Mean Girls."

"Heathers" wasn't a hit at first, but it eventually became such a huge cult success that it made lunchroom polls and lines like "What's your damage?" into pop-culture fixtures. Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's still much you may not know about "Heathers," from which other »

Jennie Garth on Shannen Doherty Feud: "There Were Times When We Wanted to Claw Each Other's Eyes Out"

13 March 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The drama on Beverly Hills, 90210 pales in comparison to what went down behind the scenes. Jennie Garth stopped by E! News Wednesday to promote her new book, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde. While there, the actress opened up to Terrence J and Catt Sadler about her tenure on the teen soap, her former feud with co-star Shannen Doherty and her new show with Tori Spelling. "I talk about my early stardom days and being sort of catapulted into that as a teenager and not really having the instruction booklet to deal with that, not knowing what I was doing," Garth said. "I was kind of alone on that journey. I didn't have a lot of support around me, so I had to figure that out as I went. I think I kind »

Jennie Garth talks Shannen Doherty feud in new memoir: Like 'gasoline and a match'

5 March 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Former "Beverly Hills, 90210" stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty may be good friends now, but that was not always the case. In her new book, "Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde," Garth dishes about their one-time rivalry.

Garth recounts a time on set (via E! Online) when Doherty kept messing with her, trying to make her break character -- "One of the great '90210' legends is that Shannen and I actually came to blows one time. I will tell you that this never happened -- although we did come very, very close," writes Garth.

Eventually, "when she'd pulled up my skirt, and my bare a** was exposed for everyone on the set to see, I did snap and I yelled at her, something to the effect of, 'Come on, b****! We're taking this outside!'"

Garth says that the two of them were like "gasoline and a match" together, »

Jennie Garth Was "Bitter Rivals" With Shannen Doherty on 90210, Like "Gasoline and a Match"

Jennie Garth has spilled the details on multiple aspects of her life in her book Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde. And, of course, there was some 90210 talk, which brought up her former frenemie Shannen Doherty. "One of the great 90210 legends is that Shannen and I actually came to blows one time," Garth writes. "I will tell you that this never happened—although we did come very, very close." Jennie went on to illustrate a specific incident when Doherty was trying to throw Garth off her game while shooting, and she just had enough. "We were shooting a scene and Shannen kept grabbing at the hem of my skirt, trying to slap me on the leg—anything to get me to »

Jason Priestley: 'I'm surprised I made it out of Beverly Hills 90210'

25 February 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The former heartthrob talks about surviving the 90s teen TV series and how he's thrown himself into directing his first full-length feature

Come with me on a journey back to the early 90s. To bleached denim and bare midriffs. To when Beverly Hills 90210 was the biggest teen show on Earth and Jason Priestley was its biggest star. His character, Brandon Walsh, was the perfect all-American high-school heartthrob: white T-shirt, big quiff and eyes to launch a raft of terrible ocean-based metaphors. When I was 11, my friend had a lifesize poster of Priestley on her wall. Now here he is: lifesize and sitting with me in a hotel bar in Glasgow, where his directorial feature debut, Cas & Dylan, is screening at the city's film festival.

Priestley is wearing a flat cap, argyle sweater and grizzly beard. "I was very much Team Dylan," I blurt, referring to the bad-boy character played by Priestley's 90210 co-star, »

'Heathers: The Musical': What we saw in rehearsal

20 February 2014 10:31 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Before Jawbreaker, Clueless, or Mean Girls, there was 1989’s Heathers, a dark cult comedy that set the standard for films about popular cliques in high school. Pre-Regina George, there were Heathers Duke, McNamara and Chandler, a trio of scrunchied debutantes who classed up the joint with delicate phrases like “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?” and “F–k me gently with a chainsaw.”

The insanely quotable film celebrates its 25th anniversary on March 31, the same day Heathers: The Musical will open in New York. Written by Daniel Waters and directed by Michael Lehmann, the acerbic teen comedy »
