20 September 2013 11:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Continuing a healthy relationship that has already produced one hit with “The Purge,” Universal Pictures has come on to the Blumhouse production “Curve” starring Julianne Hough.

The Skeleton Key” helmer Iain Softley will helm the pic.

Story follows a young bride-to-be who is trapped in her overturned car off a deserted highway after deliberately crashing it in an attempt to escape a charming, predatory hitchhiker.

Universal is distributing with Jason Blum producing through his Blumhouse Productions along with Jaume Collet-Serra, Julie Yorn and Juan Sola. Erik Olsen, Jc Spink and Stephen L’Heureux are exec producing.

Lee Patterson is doing a rewrite on the script with the original draft coming from Kimberly Lofstrom Johnson. Exec VP of production Scott Bernstein will oversee the project for Universal.

Blumhouse is riding a hot streak with FilmDistrict’s “Insidious: Chapter 2″ bringing in more than $40 million at the box office in its first weekend. »

Rona Anderson obituary

9 August 2013 5:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Star of British film thrillers who specialised in the role of the classy girlfriend

In the 1950s, while watching a second feature before the "big picture" at their local cinema, regular British filmgoers would often have seen Rona Anderson, who has died aged 86. Anderson starred in 20 movies between 1950 and 1958, mostly well-crafted, low-budget thrillers. Opposite such luminaries as Robert Beatty, Jimmy Hanley, John Bentley, Paul Carpenter and Lee Patterson, Anderson was the classy girlfriend who helps the hero solve a murder, usually via a visit to the criminal underground, all within the hour allotted to the film.

According to the Scottish comedian Stanley Baxter, Anderson "had this incredible, porcelain-like face, too beautiful for film … The camera likes angularity, to see the edges, and I think Rona's face was just too perfect." Whatever the reason, Anderson made few major movies, though she appeared in many popular television series, such as The Human Jungle »

Update On “The Dark Tower” And “The Body Thief” At Imagine Entertainment

17 May 2013 1:55 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

There’s a new update on the long crusade to bring Roland’s journey to the big and/or small screen. Imagine Entertainment had originally planned to make a film and then a TV series follow up. This was too expensive, and led to just a single movie idea, with Russell Crowe in the lead. Then word broke that a Silicon Valley investor has come forward willing to pay to construct the original vision. Now it’s up to Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to choose which way they want to bring Stephen King’s epic to life.

Also in the works is a reboot of Lestat from Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire. It would be based on the fourth book in Rice’s book series, The Body Thief, when Lestat switches bodies with a human for 24 hours.

Erica Huggins, Imagine’s Co-President of Production, had this to »
