Toronto: Fangoria Halloween Party, Pics and Report

5 November 2012 8:02 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Organized by Fango contributor John Nicol and myself, Fangoria’S Black Sunday at Club 3030 was a splendid affair, packed with pundits poured into costumes of all kinds and featuring FX man Paul Jones, who brought his Red Pyramid suit from Silent Hill: Revelation and made up one of the bartenders as a Sh nurse. Paul and I even hosted a wild, barely controlled costume contest.

The substances flowed freely, the vintage pinball machines dinged and the music blasted until the wee hours. A good time was had by all, with Canadian Fango freaks and new converts sharing space and braving Sandy’s wrath (yes, up here we also took a smaller smack from the storm). 

Thanks to Fango fotographer and contributor David Goodfellow, we even have the pics to prove that the party was legit. Have a look…

Interview with Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Director Michael J. Bassett

26 October 2012 3:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D opened in theaters today and we’ve been running a number of special features to let you know more about the movie. Last night we published our interview session with Adelaide Clemens and we now have our talk with director Michael J. Bassett. Continue reading to learn about his experience working with 3D, familiar characters that return for the sequel, and what direction he’d take a third movie:

Can you tell us about shooting this film in 3D? Was it always your intention to make it a 3D movie?

Michael J. Bassett: This was always going to be a 3D movie, but I came into the project a little bit leery about it, to be honest. Bright animation and 3D work beautifully, but this is a horror movie and it was a challenge to figure out how to make dark and 3D work together. »

Director Michael J. Bassett Talks Silent Hill: Revelation; Read the Review!

26 October 2012 1:27 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It’s been many years since our last visit to Silent Hill on the big screen, but I find myself returning to the original film often in the comfort of my own home when I’m looking for a moody, atmospheric creepfest… and I know I’m not alone.

With legions of fans of the first film and millions more fans of the video games, there was more than enough reason to unleash Pyramid Head and those odd sexy, stabby nurses once more. Dread Central sat down with Michael J. Bassett, director of Silent Hill: Revelation (review), to find out what’s on tap... in 3D!!

In Silent Hill: Revelation, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn't fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, »

Toothbrush DNA convicts hotel bill dodger

8 October 2012 9:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A hotel guest who fled without paying his bill has been tracked down using DNA found on the toothbrush he left behind. Trainee plasterer Stephen Evans, 29, checked into a £32-a-night guesthouse in his hometown of Llandudno, Wales under a false name and address in June, claiming to be "Paul Jones of Chester". He told the receptionist that he would be staying for three nights, but left the hotel after two days without paying for his stay, the Daily Mail reports. Police noticed the toothbrush in his room when they were called to investigate. They had it forensically tested and discovered a DNA match on the police database.

'The Mummy' Gets Brand New Universal Reboot

5 April 2012 10:33 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The studio that brought us classic monster movies during the 1930s to the late 1940s has been resurrecting their fearless creatures for remakes like 2010's "The Wolfman" starring Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. Now, Variety brings news that the studio wants to reboot their "Mummy" franchise (again!), and they've hired "Prometheus" writer Jon Spaihts to pen the feature.

You probably remember the 1990's take on "The Mummy" starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. "The Scorpion King" was the 2002 spin-off starring then action newb Dwayne Johnson, which saw equal success. Fraser made his way back to the story in 2008's "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor," which raked in $401 million worldwide. Judging by the numbers, the studio feels there is still life left in the ancient corpse. So where does scribe Spaihts want to take things? "I see it as the sort of opportunity I had with 'Prometheus »

Jaume Collet-Serra May Battle The Giant Squid To Direct Here There Be Monsters

5 April 2012 9:19 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in February, in the wake of the amazing success of Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, it was thrilling to hear that director Brad Bird might be preparing another live-action film, taking over the sea monster project Here There Be Monsters that had originally been developed by Robert Zemeckis. The word back in February was merely that Bird was contemplating taking on the film, so I guess we can't be too surprise or disappointed that Bird seems just as quickly to have moved on. Now the word at Vulture is that Jaume Collet-Serra, who made the thrillers Orphan and Unknown, is in negotiations to take over the project, with plans to offer the leading role to Bradley Cooper. Though the drama of the story revolves around a giant squid in the North Atlantic, Cooper would be playing real-life Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones. He gets stripped of his British »

Jaume Collet-Serra, director of Orphan and Unknown, is the current director in talks to take over Here There Be Monsters at Warner Bros. Also in line is Bradley Cooper who would star as Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones. Here There Be Monsters has gone through several directors such as Robert Zemeckis and Brad Bird before landing with Collet-Serra. But the fact that a star is already lined up gives a little more green to this light. The screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland (Man »

5 April 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Revolutionary Squid Fighter: This sounds crazy, but bear with us, because this could be good. Bradley Cooper will (eventually) be offered the lead role of Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones in Here There Be Monsters, based on a script by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Green Zone) in which Jones investigates the disappearnce of merchant ships in the North Atlantic; a giant squid is the chief suspect (?!). Jaume Collett-Serra (Unknown, Orphan) is now in negotiations to direct; past possible helmsmen included Robert Zemeckis and Brad Bird. [Vulture] Laugh at the Wolf Boy: Oh boy! As if you needed more reasons (not) to see Grown Ups 2, the forthcoming sequel to Adam Sandler’s highly popular (alleged) comedy, Taylor Lautner (Twilight) has now been added to the cast. He...

Collet-Serra and Cooper Teaming on Here There Be Monsters ?

5 April 2012 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Director Jaume Collet-Serra ( Unknown , Orphan ) is is negotiations to direct Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' Here There Be Monsters , says Vulture . The site adds that Bradley Cooper is wanted for the lead role, though a formal offer is not expected to go out for a while. According to the site: "Cooper would play real-life Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones, albeit a much-younger Jones, well before he had famously "not yet begun to fight" the Brits. After he's stripped of his British naval commission, Jones is hired by a shipping magnate to investigate the disappearance of merchant ships in the North Atlantic, which are used as toothpicks (beak-picks?) by a giant squid." Brian Helgeland wrote the script for the film, which is targeted »

Serra, Cooper Learn "There Be Monsters"

4 April 2012 9:32 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Unknown" and "Orphan" helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is in negotiations to direct the long-gestating history-meets-Lovecraftian beasties mashup "Here There Be Monsters" at Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures says Vulture.

The story follows Revolutionary War naval hero John Paul Jones, but throws in tentacled monsters of the deep to the mix. An offer is out to Bradley Cooper to play Jones.

Brian Helgeland penned the script in which Jones is wrongly stripped of his British naval commission and is hired by a shipping magnate to investigate the disappearance of merchant ships in the North Atlantic. Jones and his crew suspect that it's the handiwork of a sea monster and have to fight to survive it.

Both Robert Zemeckis and Brad Bird have previously flirted with potentially directing project but ultimately passed. Collet-Serra has been brought aboard to ready the script for an early 2013 start, filming to begin once Cooper wraps "The Hangover Part III »

Here There Be Monsters - Where Be the Star and Director?

We really hate these would be/could be "in talks with" stories, but hey, we gotta keep up with the Joneses. Whoever the hell they may be. In fact we're taking it upon ourselves to blame said Joneses for everything we don't like... starting now.

According to New York Magazine's Vulture, director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan) is in negotiations to take control of the long-gestating Legendary Pictures/Warner Bros. co-production of Here There Be Monsters, a Brian Helgeland script which he offered to Bradley Cooper to star in as its leading man. If all goes to plan, Cooper would play real-life Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones, albeit a much younger Jones, well before he had famously "not yet begun to fight" the Brits.

Jaume Collet-Serra May Hunt Monsters

4 April 2012 6:51 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Giant sea creature adventure Here There Be Monsters has been slinking around the development oceans for a year or so now, and the latest director to turn his periscope towards the project is Jaume Collet-Serra. The man who brought the world Orphan and Unknown has been part of Warner Bros. long-running attempt to bring Akira into the live-action world. But with that one stalled to sort out its spiralling budget, the director is looking around for other projects. He has revisionist Dracula tale Harker bubbling away in development, but Vulture has heard that it won’t shoot until 2014, with Russell Crowe still on board to star.So Collet-Serra may end up filling his time with Monsters, which, like Akira, is also a Warners / Legendary Pictures collaboration and already boasts a script from Brian Helgeland that has attracted the likes of Robert Zemeckis and Brad Bird.Monsters follows real-life revolutionary war type John Paul Jones, »

Orphan Director Jaume Collet-Serra in Talks to Helm Here There Be Monsters; Bradley Cooper Eyed for Lead

4 April 2012 6:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The period adventure pic Here There Be Monsters is one of those incredibly cool-sounding projects that has been lingering in development hell for years.  Robert Zemeckis was first eyeing the film as a return to live-action, then Brad Bird (The Incredibles) flirted with the pic once Zemeckis passed.  Now it appears that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have decided to go with a lesser known director to take the helm: Jaume Collet-Serra.  The director was previously behind the horror feature Orphan and the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown, but he’s become quite popular as of late.  In addition to being attached to the live-action adaptation of Akira, Collet-Serra is also prepping a re-imaging of the Dracula story, Harker, with Russell Crowe. Hit the jump for more on Here There Be Monsters, including the possible casting of Bradley Cooper. First, a refresher: the story of Here There Be Monsters concerns real-life »

Here There Be Monsters Snagging Collet-Serra; Bradley Cooper to Be Offered Lead

Vulture hears exclusively that director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan) is in negotiations to take control of the long-gestating Legendary Pictures–Warner Bros. co-production of Here There Be Monsters, a Brian Helgeland script which Vulture has also just learned will be offered to Bradley Cooper to star as its leading man.

If you're a fan of the zombies and creatures in the Resident Evil movie franchise and you're curious what's coming in Resident Evil: Retribution, you're in the right place.  That's because while visiting the set last month in Toronto along with a few other online reporters, we got to speak with makeup effects supervisor Paul Jones.  During the interview, Jones talked about the new and returning zombies, the make-up in the fifth film and how it's different, the new creatures, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to read what he had to say. Here's a few of the highlights from Paul Jones: There are more zombies this time around except they’re in smaller groups. Everything is enhanced with the Russian zombies; their actions are almost super-human. Jones wanted the makeup on the zombies to look realistic. He took inspiration from Day of the Dead. The Lickers are all CGI. »
