39 minutes ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Shrouded in shadows, Doom-Head is featured in creepy fashion in the first still from Rob Zombie's 31. Also included in our latest round-up is a casting update for the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and an exclusive excerpt from Doug Lavers’ sci-fi thriller, Rekindling of Hope.

Rob Zombie's 31: Played by Richard Brake, Doom-Head dominates the first official still from Rob Zombie's 31 (see below). Since the news broke earlier this month that Malcolm McDowell had joined the cast of 31 as Father Murder, more actors have joined the film's ranks:

Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »

Ehren Kruger Developing The Brothers Grimm TV Series

19 March 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Terry Gilliam’s 2005 fantasy film The Brothers Grimm, which starred Matt Damon and the late Heath Ledger, is following in the footsteps of 12 Monkeys, Fargo and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, now that Ehren Kruger has been tasked with penning a TV adaptation for Miramax.

Kruger, the prolific scribe behind The Ring and the last three Transformers films, wrote the script for the original movie and will build off that origin story for the series. As with The Brothers Grimm, the show is expected to follow the adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm as they hunt supernatural entities in 19th century Europe.

Zanne Devine, Miramax’s executive vice president of film and television, said:

“The tales of the Brothers Grimm are beloved around the world and offer an endless well of story and character to draw from. It’s a natural fit for television.”

DJ Caruso In Talks To Direct G.I. Joe 3

13 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount may have finally found a director for G.I. Joe 3. After G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu jumped ship to make Jem and the Holograms for Blumhouse, the studio scrambled to find a replacement, with Casino Royale director Martin Campbell‘s name at one point ending up in the mix before he moved along. Now, though, Deadline is reporting that Disturbia director D.J. Caruso is in “early discussions” to take over the blockbuster franchise.

THR adds that, before a deal could be reached, Caruso would have to receive a stamp of approval from franchise star Dwayne Johnson, currently the only actor confirmed to return for the threequel. It makes sense that Ray Park’s Snake Eyes, Adrianne Palicki’s Lady Jaye, D.J.
