Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: John Carpenter’s Lost Themes, Stand-Alone Star Wars Movie, Scream Queens TV Series

27 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re back with another horror/sci-fi news round-up. This time around, we focus on John Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record release, the hiring of a new writer for one of the stand-alone Star Wars films, and an unpredictable new cast addition for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV series.

It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan’s lair. John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.

The nine tracks on Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don’t come from iconic films, but they will likely have listeners watching »

Fox’s Scream Queens Will Include Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin And Joe Manganiello

19 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss SunshineZombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.

Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.

The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »

Twin Peaks

The upcoming return of "Twin Peaks" to Showtime has everyone asking who from the original 1990s series is returning. So far the network has only confirmed that Kyle McLachlan will be back as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Then came a rumor early last week that both Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey) and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer, Maddy Ferguson) would be reprising their roles.

Late last week though, both Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbook (Bobby Briggs) appeared at a UK festival for "Twin Peaks" lovers and said they've gotten the Ok from David Lynch to reveal that they're both coming back to the show. They didn't confirm but did seem to imply that Sherilyn Fenn is also back. [Source: io9]

11 best and worst movie mentors: Batman Begins, Fight Club, Clueless

18 January 2015 4:50 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The inspirational mentor is dead. On screen, that is. In recent years we've seen a drop-off in this once-beloved trope, with distinctly anti-heroic teachers, instructors and father figures coming to the forefront – see Ryan Gosling in Half Nelson, Steve Carell in Foxcatcher, Breaking Bad's Walter White, etc.

The latest example is Terence Fletcher, Jk Simmons's fearsome and sadistic jazz instructor who terrorises Miles Teller into greatness in this week's stunning Whiplash.

Below, Digital Spy picks out 11 more of the very best and very worst mentors in cinema history.

Best: Sean Maguire (Good Will Hunting)

It was a close run thing in this spot between "Carpe diem" and "It's not your fault", and in truth about half of Robin Williams's characters could qualify for this list.

But avuncular therapist Sean is everything you could wish for in a mentor, gently chipping away at Will's (Matt Damon) self-destructive defence »

TCA 2015: “The Office” alum discusses the challenge of making a miserable character worth watching

Rainn Wilson is moving on from playing an eccentric weasel/suck-up on “The Office” to starring as a brilliant but misanthropic detective on Fox’s upcoming series “Backstrom.” During the panel for the new show at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Saturday, Wilson tackled the topic of why audiences should tune in to watch a character whose disdain for mankind sometimes extends into racism and sexism.

Wilson’s conclusion: Sure, Det. Lt. Everett Backstrom is “an asshole” — who’s worth getting to know. »
