20 September 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Diablo Cody is pushing harder into television.

The Oscar winner (Juno) has signed a multiyear overall deal with Warner Bros. Television.

Under the pact, Cody will create and develop new projects for the independent studio.

The deal extends Cody's relationship with Peter Roth's Wbtv following the studio's ABC comedy pilot Raised by Wolves.

26 August 2017 11:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tobe Hooper, the horror director best known for helming “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” and “Poltergeist,” died Saturday in Sherman Oaks, Calif. He was 74.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office said it was reported as a natural death.

The 1974 “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” became one of the most influential horror films of all time for its realistic approach and deranged vision. Shot for less than $300,000, it tells the story of a group of unfortunate friends who encounter a group of cannibals on their way to visit an old homestead. Though it was banned in several countries for violence, it was one of the most profitable independent films of the 1970s in the U.S. The character of Leatherface was loosely based on serial killer Ed Gein.

Hooper also directed the 1986 sequel “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2,” which took a more comedic approach, as part of his Cannon Films deal.
