21 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"The Expanse," a new Syfy/Alcon TV project we've been keeping a close eye on, just got even more interesting with word of two new cast members. Read on for the details, and look for more as it comes.

From the Press Release:

Syfy and Alcon TV have announced that Steven Strait (pictured; "Magic City") and Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo ("House of Saddam," House of Sand and Fog) will star in "The Expanse," the new 10-episode space opera based on the international best-selling book series, premiering on Syfy in 2015.

Universal Veers From Superhero Trend for a Monster Plan

21 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While most studios in Hollywood are betting on superheroes to save the box office, Universal Pictures is doubling down on creature features.

This month, the studio acquired rights to Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles” book series. In July, it announced plans to create a Marvel-like cinematic universe around Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man and the Creature From the Black Lagoon. At the same time, the studio inked an eyebrow-raising 10-year, first-look deal with microbudget horror producer Jason Blum, whose Blumhouse Films is behind the profitable “Paranormal Activity,” “Sinister,” “Insidious” and “The Purge” franchises. Last summer, the studio lured Legendary Entertainment into the fold, and now the production firm is co-financing U’s “Jurassic World” and “Dracula Untold,” and has its own upcoming thrillers, including “As Above, So Below” and King Kong tentpole “Skull Island,” which Universal will release.

Sweet Chariot! Tom Hiddleston Courted For ‘Ben-Hur’ Title Role

12 August 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: MGM, Paramount and Timur Bekmambetov set a February 26, 2016, release date on an epic remake of Ben-Hur; have they found their chariot driver in Tom Hiddleston? I hear that he’s the one the studios are courting to play Judah Ben-Hur in the adaptation of the 1880 Lew Wallace novel Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ, which was the biggest-selling novel of its time until it was eclipsed by Gone With The Wind.

Hiddleston isn’t being fitted for a toga just yet. He has other projects vying for his services, including the MGM pic Me Before You. Keith Clarke, who scripted the Peter Weir-directed The Way Back, wrote the script that MGM pounced on after that company got ambitious following its emergence from bankruptcy and huge hits in Skyfall and The Hobbit.

Make a Date With The Mummy

31 July 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Just a day after announcing that Alex Kurtzman is now at the helm of The Mummy, we have a release date to share with you cats. Look for the latest reboot to unwrap in theatres on June 24, 2016.

Kurtzman is in final negotiations to direct Universal’s reboot of The Mummy. Kurtzman, who with former writing partner Robert Orci wrote some of the biggest franchise players in the last decade, is already producing the movie with Chris Morgan.

Kurtzman and Morgan are weaving together a cinematic universe for Universal based on its movie monsters properties, and The Mummy is due to be one of the first one out of the gate, setting the tone and stage for the rest of the universe.

Plot details are still under wraps, but it was previously indicated that the new Mummy is set in the present and is not a horror play but rather an action-adventure tentpole with horror elements. »

"Archer and Armstrong" Film In The Works

16 July 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sean Daniel Company is set to produce a film adaptation of Valiant Entertainment's comic series "Archer & Armstrong". Said comic, originally created in 1992, was revived two years ago.

The action buddy comedy follows a Obadiah Archer, a young man raised in a Kansas evangelical cult who has been raised and trained to defeat the ultimate evildoer.

One problem, his enemy is actually a drunken immortal calling himself Armstrong who couldn’t be less interested in bringing about the apocalypse. Obadiah's own parents and the cult they belong to might have slightly less trustworthy ambitions.

BenDavid Grabinski penned the script while Dinesh Shamdasani, Sean Daniel and Jason Brown will produce.
