Legends

Sean Bean has signed on to replace Brendan Fraser in the TNT drama series "Legends". Fraser reportedly exited the series due to "creative differences".

Bean plays a deep-cover operative Martin Odum, who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is. [Source: The Av Club]

Robeson

"Homeland" star David Harewood is in talks to play Paul Robeson in the indie biopic "Robeson" from Four Stars Intl. Shooting aims to begin next year.

Robeson, born in 1898, was a singer, actor and orator from the 1920s through the 1950s best known for his acting in "Othello" and his singing of "Ol' Man River." His political activism brought him to the attention of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. [Source: Variety]

Blu-ray Review: Abysmally Unfunny ‘Piranha 3Dd’ Doubles the Awfulness

6 September 2012 6:27 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Piranha 3Dd” is such a pathetic excuse for entertainment that it doesn’t even deserve to be regarded as a film. It’s just soft-core porn stuffed with shoddy special effects. The titillation factor is zilch and the scare factor is even lower than that. Even frat boys under the influence of multiple drugs may have difficulty finding this dreck watchable, let alone funny.

Director John Gulager is the Project Greenlight winner whose 2005 schlock-fest, “Feast,” still remains his crowning achievement. He appears to have no knowledge of why camp has the potential to be amusing. Truly funny camp must be constructed with a degree of sincerity. “The Room” is a timeless comedy classic because its eccentric creator, Tommy Wiseau, mistakenly thought he was making a searing relationship drama. You simply can’t make a movie like that on purpose. Everyone who does fails spectacularly.

Blu-ray Rating: 0.5/5.0

Blu Review: Piranha 3Dd

5 September 2012 9:04 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Piranha 3Dd the sequel to the campy (but fun) 'monster' film didn't do incredibly well in the box office.  Now it's available for your home viewing pleasure and Eric is here to help you decide wether it's a good thing you missed it in theaters or if it's worth adding to your home collection. 

A school of mutated piranhas enter a water park through its piping systems. The step-daughter of its crooked co-owner must find a way to close off the man-eating creatures' access to the amusement facility. The employees of the park attempt to rescue the thrill-seeking swimmers before they're devoured by the aquatic monsters.

Roger Corman's name may not be found in the credits of this sequel, but his spirit is felt throughout it. It's the usual over-the-top creature feature we've all become accustomed to seeing from the B-movie king. Imagine Jaws if it took place in »

9 Things I Learned Listening to the 'Piranha 3Dd' Audio Commentary Plus a Drinking Game

21 August 2012 1:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Radius TWC When I received the Blu-ray for Piranha 3Dd, easily one of the worst films of the year so far (my review here), I sort of laughed, imagining I would never even remove the plastic wrap. Then I flipped it over to see an audio commentary with director John Gulager, producer and co-writer Joel Soisson and co-writer Marcus Dunstan. I've done articles detailing tidbits learned from audio commentaries before such as David Fincher's for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (find that here) and Kevin did one for David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method (find that here). Of course, those were looking at films we tend to take a little more seriously, but I thought this might be fun so what the hell. Listed at 83 minutes the film actually runs around only 70, but Gulager, Soisson and Dunstan are sure to use all 83. Separating the trio out isn't exactly easy, »

'Piranha 3Dd' Movie Review (2012)

4 June 2012 12:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There is only one way to "enjoy" Piranha 3Dd and that is drunk and with as many friends as possible, most of you hardly paying attention to what is going on in the film. I haven't seen director John Gulager's Project Greenlight venture Feast, which spawned a pair of sequels after becoming a buzzed about horror film back in 2005, but if this film is any indication of its quality I hope I never do. This is, without a doubt, one of the worst movies I have seen in the last several years. For screenwriters Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan and Joel Soisson to leave their names attached as "writers" is an insult to the word. Prior to Piranha 3Dd, Melton and Dunstan were responsible for writing several of the Saw sequels and Soisson can lay claim to the likes of Mimic 2, The Prophecy: Forsaken and Children of the Corn: Genesis among others. »

Winding Refn Producing New Maniac Cop?!

17 April 2012 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Some successful and acclaimed filmmakers use their clout to take deep sea submersibles where no one has gone before, for the enlightenment of all mankind. Others like to revive moribund horror franchises. Nicolas Winding Refn belongs to that latter camp, and is apparently planning on being instrumental in reviving the Maniac Cop.The gleefully scuzzy Maniac Cop series, should it have passed you by, belongs to the Larry Cohen school of genre exploitation, and is about an undead police officer on a killing spree (three of them, ultimately). The 1988 original stars two famous chins in Bruce Campbell and Robert Z'Dar. Z'dar continued on his maniacal path through both sequels; Robert Davi did the investigating in the second and third instalments; and part three (Badge Of Silence) has Jackie Earl Haley in it. All three were produced by Cohen and directed by William Lustig (with help on the third from Joel Soisson »

New Trailer For Piranha 3Dd Has Been Unleashed!

29 February 2012 11:31 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I love me the Gulager’s. And I love me the writing duo of Marcus Dunstan & Patrick Melton. And now after our first taste several months back of the sequel to Alex Aja’s remake of Piranha, we’ve got a brand new trailer for Piranha 3Dd!

And as the title implies, it delivers on the boobs, as well as the blood, David Hasselhoff (!), some wacky Christopher Lloyd, um… some Gary Busey using his chompers to take a bite out of a piranha (?) and the return of (the new and improved) Ving Rhames! Feast helmer Jon Gulager directs from a script by Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton and Joel Soisson. No release date is set yet, but the trailer implies this summer.

Seeing is believing, fiends. Check it out below:

Piranha 3Dd Trailer is Here! Time to Get Wet!

29 February 2012 9:01 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Are you ready for it?  Here is the official trailer for Piranha 3Dd, the follow-up to Alex Aja's Piranha 3D directed by John Gulager and written by Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton and Joel Soisson.

There is no shortage of boobs, butts, sexual innuendo and voracious fish in this preview, which you'll find after the break.  It looks like the fish in this one can go just about anywhere they want...including a bathtub.  And it certainly appears Gulager, Dunstan and Melton tapped into their insane Feast sensibility where anything can happen. 

The sequel - which does not have a release date yet - stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd and Paul Scheer.
