Catfish Directors to Helm Young Adult Novel Nerve for Lionsgate

12 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As The Hunger Games franchise continues to bring in the big bucks at the box office, movie studios are feeling increasingly confident when it comes to adapting Young Adult novels. Some have flopped of course, while the next one – Divergent – should help give us a better idea as to whether or not this is a genre which can truly find its footing.

Regardless, Lionsgate are now moving ahead with an adaptation of Jeanne Ryan’s Nerve. It tells the story of a high school senior wallflower who, in an attempt to broaden her horizons, joins a global online game of provocative truth or dare while an audience of “watchers” vote and comment. But as she becomes a sensation and advances higher and higher, the game evolves and soon she finds herself in a dangerous and life-ending situation.

It sounds like an extremely interesting premise, and the movie version has been »

The novel follows a high school senior who decides to branch out by participating in an online game of truth or dare. The catch? The game is constantly being watched and commented on. Not surprisingly, she realizes it might not have been the best decision when she starts to advance to higher levels and suddenly finds herself in life-threatening situations. »

Catfish Directors Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman to Helm Nerve Adaptation for Lionsgate

10 February 2014 1:32 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With only two installments left in the highly lucrative Hunger Games series, Lionsgate/Summit is continuing to mine Ya properties for feature film fare, and now Heat Vision reports that Lionsgate has tapped Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to direct an adaptation of the Jeanne Ryan novel Nerve.  The story revolves around a high school senior who takes part in a global online game of truth or dare that plays out as “watchers” vote and comment (with her fate left to internet commenters, what could possibly go wrong?).  As the game escalates and the girl advances higher and higher, she finds herself in grave danger. Joost and Schulman followed up the provocative Catfishwith Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, but they’re currently in pre-production on an untitled thriller for Blumhouse so Nerve likely won’t be their next film.  That being said, this certainly feels like »

American Horror Story, Ep. 3.12: “Go To Hell” – Bloody Entertaining!

23 January 2014 12:13 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story, Season 3, Episode 11: “Go To Hell”

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Written by Jessica Sharzer

Airs Wednesdays at 10:00 Pm on FX

“Go to Hell,” the penultimate episode of Coven, ramps up the action, piles on the blood, closes off a few story-lines, and says goodbye to a few characters in a manner that suits their perverse obsessions. With the end of Fiona’s reign approaching, the girls manifest powerful new gifts, and Cordelia’s latest vision puts the Coven’s future in question. The only mystery left to be unraveled is the identity of the new Supreme, and while each young witch shows signs of being the next leader of the coven, we’ll have to wait seven more days to find out just who it is. Despite a few odd twists and turns here and there, “Go To Hell” benefits from having a clear destination for its characters. »

“Go to Hell”

Written By: Jessica Sharzer

Directed By: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Original Airdate: 22 January 2013

In This Episode…

Queenie summons Legba. She wants him to break the immortality spell that is tied to Delphine and Marie. She reasons that Marie has not been able to keep her end of the contract because Delphine has been torturing her. If Delphine is dead, then Marie can hold up her end of the bargain. Legba actually appreciates this shrewdness.

Delphine has taken a job as a docent at the Lalurie historical home. Well, not so much “taken a job” as knocked the current docent unconscious. Delphine had taken the tour and didn’t like what she saw. The attic wasn’t a torture chamber; it was a place of stern obedience. She didn’t kill 150 slaves; it was more like 62 - Delphine kept immaculate records. Queenie finds Delphine at the museum and tries, »

American Horror Story Coven episode 12 review: Go To Hell

22 January 2014 11:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 23 Jan 2014 - 07:22

Ahs Coven is as subtle as an axe to the face and all the more fun for it. Here's Ron's impressed review of Go To Hell...

This review contains spoilers.

3.12 Go To Hell

A true testament to a great television show is that it turns the viewer into a time traveller. You sit down at 10pm to watch the adventures of some witches in New Orleans or some crazy people in a 1960s insane asylum or Dylan McDermott crysturbating his way through the Great Recession in a house full of ghosts, and usually you come out of a trance-like state with about ten minutes left in the episode. Typically, that return to reality comes side-by-side with surprise, confusion, and dismay that so little of the episode remains when all you want to do is binge-watch the rest of the season.

Of course, with only »
