Simon Pegg Will Play The Devil in The Gathering

13 December 2014 12:02 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Simon Pegg playing the Devil?! Sounds good to me! The actor has been cast in a horror comedy called The Gathering, and it sounds awesome! I never thought I’d see Pegg as the Devil, but now that it’s out in the universe it makes complete sense. The movie is being directed by Jon Keeyes, and he talked to Fangoria about the project. This is how he describes the fantastic story that he’s going to tell:

“On Halloween night, the devil brings together Mary Shelley, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker, and Edgar Allan Poe in purgatory to tell their best untold tales, the idea being that whoever has the best story of the night gets to leave purgatory forever ... We've tried to put a spin on the essence of the stories they're most well-known for. So Stoker tells a vampire tale, but it's not about Dracula. H.P. Lovecraft's »

Simon Pegg to play the Devil in The Gathering

11 December 2014 12:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Pegg is to head up a starry horror comedy about Mary Shelley, Lovecraft, Bram Stoker and Edgar Allan Poe...

Horror legend Jeffrey Combs is well known for his collaborations with director Stuart Gordon, which resulted in such wildly entertaining films as Re-Animator, From Beyond and The Pit And The Pendulum.

Combs is set to star in The Gathering, which sounds like the kind of film he'd make with Gordon. In it, Combs will play Edgar Allan Poe - a role he's inhabited twice for Gordon, first in TV's The Masters Of Horror: The Black Cat, and a second time in a stage production called Nevermore.

The Gathering will be directed by Jon Keeyes, whose previous films include Phobia (2013) and Fall Down Dead (2007). Essentially an anthology film, the premise behind The Gathering is quite ingenious: the Devil (who'll be played by Simon Pegg) gathers together a group of famous »

The Historian Lays Bare the Cost of Academic Life

25 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Smart people (in this case, academics) do stupid things in The Historian, and since first-time writer/director Miles Doleac has the tendency to spell things out, one professor actually asks another how anyone so smart can be so stupid. Likewise, an embittered Valerian Hadley (William Sadler) feels compelled to tell Ben Rhodes (Doleac) that he'll end up just like him, even though it's obvious that the resentful department head is the ghost of tenured future for the upstart, who arrives at a new university with a successful book, a shattered marriage, and an exalted view of academic rigor. SAn assistant professor of classics at the University of Southern Mississippi (where he shot The Historian), Doleac captures the rhythms of academic life in a leisurely t »

Shawshank Redemption celebrates 20th anniversary: The cast then and now

21 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

The Flash, Ep. 1.05, “Plastique” is the most comic booky outing yet

11 November 2014 8:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Flash, Season 1, Episode 5, “Plastique”

Written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing & Brooke Eikmeier

Directed by Dermott Downs

Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW

Hot damn! I normally like to write about the events in the episode in the order they happened, but we have got to talk about that ending! Gorilla Grodd is coming! He was teased in the pilot, but in a brief flashback we saw that the gorilla (who is seemingly just a poor lab ape at that point) was at the center of the rift between Wells and General Eiling. Wells telling the sad primate that he has “a very different future planned” is an enticing tease for the most out-there concept of the show yet.

Now on to the meat of “Plastique”, which starts with a supposed bomb going off in Central City and the sudden intrusion of the army, led by Eiling (Highlander »

7 November 2014 7:13 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Reaching the 100th episode of any TV series is a huge milestone, and the CBS drama series Hawaii Five-0, currently in its fifth season, is doing so on November 7th.  In the episode entitled “Inā Paha,” Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) is kidnapped by Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos), and he experiences what would have happened to the team, if they had taken a very different path.  William Sadler returns as McGarrett’s father, and singer/musician Gavin Rossdale guest stars as the nefarious Johnny Moreau. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Gavin Rossdale talked about how he came to be a part of the 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0, the biggest challenges in playing this role, how gracious everyone was in making him feel welcome, the possibility of future episodes, shooting somewhere as beautiful as Hawaii, which other shows he’d love to do an episode of, and the »

Hawaii Five-0 Sneak Peek: Meet Gavin Rossdale's "Double-Crossing Jerk-Off Criminal"

7 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Hawaii becomes the Island of Johnny Moreau on Friday's 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0: Bush singer Gavin Rossdale guest-stars as a new villain.

The bulk of the milestone hour is devoted to a "Sliding Doors" plot — in which McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) is kidnapped by Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos) and experiences what his life would have been like if his father, John McGarrett (William Sadler), had never died. And it's a must-see episode for longtime fans, who will finally get a definitive answer as to the exact link between McGarrett and Wo Fat.

So what does Johnny Moreau have to do with all this? TVGuide.com chatted with Rossdale about his guest-starring role, which TV shows he's addicted to, and whether we'll be seeing any more of him on The Voice this season.

Preview Gallery: 20th Anniversary Retrospective Celebrating Demon Knight to be Featured in Deadly – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine Issue #3

24 October 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of my very favorite parts of this job is being able to pay tribute to movies that I grew up loving, the ones that taught me something about the genre and had a huge impact on me as a horror or cinema fan in general. One such movie is Ernest R. Dickerson’s Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight  andm with its 20th anniversary approaching, I thought the horror comedy would make for a perfect selection for my next Deadly – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine retrospective in the upcoming November issue.

During my research on Demon Knight over the last several months, I came across some really cool production stills and the official set of lobby cards that were released in 1995. Because they’re not something easily found online, I thought it would be fun to share with our readers as I geeked out over these and think other fans of »

'Flash' Episode 2 Featurette: Shooting 'Fastest Man Alive'

18 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last Tuesday, The CW debuted The Flash episode 2: The Fastest Man Alive, which introduced super villain Multiplex to the rogues gallery for this latest small screen superhero hit. They've now launched a new featurette, which takes us behind this exciting continuation of Barry Allen's beginnings as a DC Comics legend.

There are still many questions swirling around Tom Cavanagh's Dr. Wells. Is he the villainous Reverse-Flash or is he Barry Allen from the future...Or is he both? The actor doesn't delve into these mysteries, but he does talk about the challenges of shooting the Multiplex scenes, a villain that can instantaneously clone himself on the spot.

In The Fastest Man Alive, Barry (Grant Gustin) has some fun with his new powers, but a setback has him questioning his true fate as a hero. He finds himself escorting Iris (Candice Patton) to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon »

'Flash' Episode 2 Clip Explains the Powers of Multiplex

10 October 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the trailer released earlier this week, The CW has debuted the first clip from Episode 2 of The Flash, entitled "Fastest Man Alive", airing Tuesday, October 13 at 8 Pm Et.

As we saw in the trailer, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will have to face the villainous Danton Black, a.k.a. Multiplex (Micheal Christopher Smith), and this scene explains that Danton may be one of those exposed to dark matter when the particle accelerator exploded. Regardless of Multiplex's origins, we also see Barry having some second thoughts about using his gift of super-speed to become a crime-fighting vigilante.

While he is not shown in this clip, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) also refers to Simon Stagg, who will be played by guest star William Sadler in this episode. We learn that Stagg actually stole all of Danton Black's cloning research and then fired him. Could Stagg be another target for the vengeful Multiplex? »

Jeff Berg’s Resolution Agency to Close

6 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former ICM chairman-ceo Jeff Berg has closed his talent and literary agency Resolution — less than two years after launching.

Berg, the chairman of Resolution, told his staff of about 40 on Monday that he was shuttering the agency, promised that he would help them find new jobs and blamed the closure on Chinese investor Bison Capital Holdings.

Berg had opened the agency with a flourish in January 2013 in lavish offices in Century City and moved aggressively to hire agents, who were paid around $200,000 to $300,000, with some getting seven figure salaries.

The downfall came seven months after Resolution’s announcement in March that Beijing-based Bison had taken a stake in Resolution Talent and Literary Agency, the first time that a Chinese company had invested in an American talent agency.

Berg was not available for comment but insiders have said that Bison simply failed to provide the promised funding, creating an atmosphere of uncertainty at Resolution, »
