More news springing from the "horror on television" crypt... ABC is apparently at work on a new series inspired by The Phantom of the Opera.
Desperate Housewives' Marc Cherry is overseeing the show which is a contemporary take on the Gaston Leroux novel. Says Variety: "The ABC rendition is billed as revolving around the cutthroat world of the music biz and will incorporate musical moments into story lines in the same vein as the ABC drama Nashville."

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we’ll post our top picks from one specific group—say, vampire movies or slasher flicks—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re ready to talk about those movies that hit a little too close to home. All horror movies prey on the psychological premise that there's beastliness roiling within everyone. But let's get real: You don't see news reports about werewolves, vampires, »

My first journey to Austin, TX and the geek holy land of Fantastic Fest was a whirlwind. Book ended with exhausting, 14 hour drives, the trip as a whole was just mind blowing, inspiring, and so much fun. Bonding with new and old friends, finding some of your personal heroes in the crowd to say hello and snap a picture with, and being able to brag about seeing things before anyone in the rest of the world is but a fraction of the magic. There’s also the Alamo Drafthouse itself which was the newly renovated flagship South Lamar location. This place was like a dream come true for me! The sound system and picture quality in every theater was among the best I’ve seen outside of an IMAX, and every movie was extremely loud like they should always be. There was an amazing swarm of a wait staff to »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although it's far from confirmed, rumors have suggested that she might playing the Carrie Kelley Robin, Batman's sidekick from Frank Miller's epochal The Dark Knight Returns! We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »
(Cbr) Eli Roth has made just four feature films in the past 12 years, but one of them is already getting a remake of sorts. Deadline reports that "Cabin Fever," the director’s 2002 feature debut, will get a remake or, more accurately, a reshoot. Basically, director Travis Zariwny will use the same script Roth wrote with Randy Pearlstein for the new version. Roth is on board as producer for the film, which starts shooting this week in in Portland, Oregon. There cast includes Gage Golightly ("Teen Wolf"), Dustin Ingram ("True Blood"), Samuel Davis ("From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series"), Matthew Daddario ("Delivery Man") and Nadine Crocker ("Some Guy Who Kills People"). Zariwny helmed the sci-fi creeper "Scavengers" as well as "Intruder," which is supposed to come out this year. »

The actor, who endured hell on Earth as Patty Hewes’ son on the late, great FX/DirecTV drama, is joining We tv’s eight-episode supernatural thriller opposite Mena Suvari, TVLine has learned exclusively.
South of Hell, which is set in South Carolina, centers on Suvari’s Maria Abascal, a skilled and fearless demon-hunter-for-hire. Like those that she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own internal demon named Abigail. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover »
A die-hard believer in the power of film (in particular 35mm), Quentin Tarantino reimagines the end of World War II with the Third Reich trapped inside a burning movie theater. The cast is typically Tarantinian, including turns from Brad Pitt as the Southern-fried squadron leader Aldo Raine, Rod Taylor as Winston Churchill (!) and Tfh’s own Eli Roth as “The Bear Jew”. But it’s Christoph Waltz as Hans Landa, a glint-eyed monster known as “The Jew Hunter” who steals the show (and won an Academy Award for his trouble.) »

Back in April, it was announced that Eli Roth‘s horror-comedy opus Cabin Fever would be getting remade, so that a new generation who couldn’t afford getting in trouble with their parents again to sneak into an R-rated movie would now be allowed to witness the grotesque beauty of bein’ young and havin’ your skin fall off. And pancakes. Oh, the pancakes. While it seemed strange at the time of the announcement that a film just released in 2002 would already be rebooted (but hey, weirder things have happened), there was at least comfort in the fact that someone — namely new director Travis Zariwny (Intruder) — saw something in the original that lit a fire and produced new ideas and torrents of gore. Think of how many horror films you’ve seen that have involved getting a wild bunch of cute young things up to the spooky cabin that someone has clearly neglected to clean for a couple »

As I've said again and again on Twitter and on the site, I absolutely loved John Wick. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action thriller that's absolutely worth your time and money. When I recently hosted a screening in NYC, there were plenty of laughs, gasps, and tons of applause during the incredible action set pieces. In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. Trust me, if you like action movies, this is a must see film. For more on John Wick, watch this trailer, see Evan shoot people in the face, and here's all our previous coverage. Last week in New York City I sat down with Keanu Reeves for an extended interview. He talked about how he got involved in the film, script changes, the challenge of shooting the various action sequences, »

Insidious: Chapter 3: New behind-the-scenes photos from Insidious: Chapter 3 suggest that the next chapter in the horror series will be just as creepy as the first two installments. This prequel follows a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott, above) who is targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity. Dermot Mulroney and Lin Shaye also star; Leigh Whannell wrote and is directing. It's due in theaters on May 29, 2015. Cabin Fever: Director Eli Roth burst onto the horror-movie scene with Cabin Fever back in 2002, and now he's serving as executive producer on a remake -- using the same script he wrote with Randy Pearlstein. Roth says he considers it "like restaging a play." Travis Zariwny will direct, with Gage Golightly (TV's Teen Wolf) leading the cast...

If you never saw Eli Roth's "Cabin Fever" twelve years ago, don't sweat it, because a remake is coming out that will pretty much be the exact same film. In fact, Roth himself is producing this do-over, which will use his original script and bring Gage Golightly, Dustin Ingram, Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario and Nadine Crocker into the woods. Production is now underway with Travis Zariwny directing the same movie. Again. [Variety] Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, aka Key and Peele, have a number of film projects in the works, but their first out of the gate will be "Keanu." And no, it's not what you think. Starting filming next April, this movie will center around a kidnapped cat. And if anyone can make that something like that work, it's these guys. [Deadline] The next project from Peter Strickland of "Berberian Sound Studio" and "The Duke of Burgundy" fame takes a step back in time. »

Cabin Fever is Getting Remade. Eli Roth‘s 2012 film Cabin Fever is being remade with the exact same Roth-Randy Pearlstein script from the original film. Roth will be producing this time around, with the directorial duties falling to Travis Zariwny. On the original the Cabin Fever: Cabin Fever is a 2002 American black comedy [...]

Keanu Reeves has been many things over the years The One, Ted, sad. But this week he assumes a new role as John Wick in the movie of the same name, a high octane thriller directed by a pair of former stuntmen (David Leitch and Chad Stahelski) and so relentlessly entertaining that it will make you forget about whatever the hell "47 Ronin" was.
In "John Wick," Reeves essays the role of a former hitman who has given up that life for the love of his wife, Helen (Bridget Moynahan). After Helen succumbs to a longtime illness, Wick is left alone and grieving, comforted only by the affection of the small puppy Helen left behind. When some Russian thugs (led by Alfie Allen) break into his home, it sets Wick on a long, bloody path of revenge. And it's really, really cool.
We sat down with Reeves last week and talked about all things "John Wick, »

Eli Roth has signed on to produce a remake of his 2002 "Cabin Fever" horror film. Shooting started this week in Oregon under the direction of Travis Zariwny (Intruder), who is using the exact same script that Roth used to make the original movie. "Travis had an amazing vision for my original script, and as a scary movie fan I really wanted to see it," said Roth. "I almost see this like re-staging a play, and I'm excited to see what ideas Travis and the cast bring to it. They're all fans of the original and want to make a film that's a new classic and I believe they will." The cast includes Gage Golightly ("Teen Wolf"), Dustin Ingram (Paranormal Activity 3), Samuel Davis ("From Dusk Till Dawn"), Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man) and Nadine Crocker (Deadgirl). In "Cabin Fever," a group of college students rent a cabin in the woods to do some partying, »

Cabin Fever centres around a group of young friends who rent a remote cabin in the woods.
All hell breaks loose when they begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus.

Well, this is strange. Just 12 years after the release of Eli Roth’s debut movie Cabin Fever, it seems that it is getting the remake treatment by Intruder director Travis Zariwny. Roth himself is behind the film, and will serve as executive producer.
Cabin Fever was a low budget horror movie set around a group of teenagers who head to a cabin in the woods. While there, they gradually succumb to a mysterious flesh-eating virus. Obviously there are parallels between this and similarly themed efforts including The Evil Dead and even The Last House Of The Left.
It seems that there is some logic behind remaking the film though, as Roth explains.
“Travis had an amazing vision for my original script, and as a scary movie fan I really wanted to see it. I almost see this like re-staging a play, and I’m excited to see what ideas Travis »

This is a slightly odd one. A remake is pressing ahead of Eli Roth's 2002 horror hit Cabin Fever, that's going to be directed by Travis Zariwny. Zariwny's latest film, Intruder, is currently in post-production, and on top of his directorial career, he's got varied credits on a whole host of other movies.
His next project, however, is something of an odd one. It's an odd decision in its own right to go for a remake of something such as Cabin Fever, just over ten years since it proved to be a modest commercial success (leading to sequels). But this is a remake that's apparently going to use the exact same screenplay as the first film. Word for word. Even the shot for shot Psycho remake added a new scene. »
Eli Roth’s debut movie, Cabin Fever, is set to be remade, with the new version of the film set to take the unusual decision to use the same script as the original. Roth wrote the original scare-fest in tandem with Randy Pearlstein, and according to Deadline, the new film will be a kind of “re-staging”, with director Travis Zariwny charged with creating something new from the exact same source material. Roth will be returning as an executive producer, and explains why a new screenwriter has not been hired to freshen things up… ...

It was 2002's indie horror tale "Cabin Fever" that announced the arrival on the scene of filmmaker Eli Roth. Roth's subsequent two "Hostel" films earned a reputation for torture porn and maybe taking the sadism too far.
Yet "Cabin Fever" still holds a decent reputation for not just the ick factor - such as the infamous leg shaving scene - but its absurdist comedy moments as well. It was a refreshing film in that there wasn't a killer stalking this group of teens in the woods but rather a really nasty flesh-eating virus.
With two forgotten Dtv sequels under its belt, Armory Films and Pelican Point Media decided earlier this year to reboot the property. Today, The Wrap reports that Eli Roth is returning for the new "Cabin Fever" and will serve as executive producer.
There's more though, it turns out the reboot will be a direct remake with Roth »
