Thief Movie Reportedly In The Pipeline Along With A New Game

12 May 2017 6:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a video game franchise synonymous with steampunk assassins and stealth, the future is strangely bright for Square’s Thief franchise, if a post from Straight Up Films is to believed.

First spotted by Game Informer, the listing claims that a live-action movie adaptation – an “action epic,” as it were – has entered development alongside a fifth entry in the cult video game series. Eidos Montreal, the studio behind 2014’s divisive reboot, is yet to announce anything official – ditto for publisher Square Enix – but there have been rumblings of a sequel leaping out of the shadows in the not-so-distant future.

Film-wise, the nebulous Thief movie has been kicking around for some time. Last we reported, screenwriters Adam Mason and Simon Boyes signed on to hash out a script, but all has been quiet on that front ever since, and today’s report from Straight Up Films fails to mention a release date. »

Pig Review [SXSW 2017]

16 March 2017 5:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every so often, a movie comes along that words cannot serviceably justify. When you’re a horror degenerate like myself, that “so often” timeframe is a little more frequent. Adam Mason’s Pig is one such title; a despicable, mean-spirited, tragically pointless torture bomb. So sickening that it’s been hidden since 2010 without release, minus a live world premiere on website Bloody Disgusting. Pig: The Final Screenings read new promotional materials, because it’s set to be destroyed after South by Southwest 2017. At least I can say “I’ve seen Pig!” when horror buffs discuss lost movies years from now? Whatever that’s worth.

Mason ties his camera to leading man/co-writer Andrew Howard, who stars as a backwoods lunatic with perverse day plans. On his trailer plot are four captives, all in different locations. When he returns from bashing one’s skull in (the film’s opening sequence »

7 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

SXSW is mayhem. Mayhem, I tell you! And this year it will also screen Mayhem, a new film by Joe Lynch (pictured above). The midnighters program at SXSW has been announced and it consists of eight world premieres, including Joe Lynch's Mayhem, Nishimura Yoshihiro's sequel Meatball Machine Kodoku, Trent Haaga's 68 Kill, Adam Mason's Pig: The Final Screenings and more. The program will receive my primary attention during the festival in Austin next month, but as always, happy surprises will abound, I hope, in other programs that feature genre titles. Here are portions of the festival's official verbiage, edited for length:: "In this current political climate, genre filmmakers are more necessary than ever," said Jarod Neece, SXSW Senior Film Programmer.

Festival top brass announced on Tuesday selections in Midnighters, short films and the Vr programme.

“In this current political climate, genre filmmakers are more necessary than ever,” said SXSW senior film programmer Jarod Neece. “They give us the chance to escape the horrors in our daily lives and spend some time in the dark, hallowed halls of the cinema.

“This year’s batch of Midnighters spans the gamut of splatter horror, dark comedy, revenge, and satire, and explore »
