Superheroes Go Dark In "Gods And Secrets"

29 July 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from his work as a producer on "Dredd" and "The Grey" along with the much talked about "Power/Rangers" fan film, Adi Shankar is set to team with Stewart Yost for his directorial debut effort "Gods And Secrets".

The project is described as a dark drama akin to Alan Moore's "Watchmen" in that it will explore the darker logical underpinnings of superhero tropes in a world in which superheroes exist and the resulting celebrity culture are front and center.

The story deals with what happens when a tragedy strikes the super heroic team Guardians of Justice, and in its aftermath secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the war to end all wars begins.

Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Sharni Vinson and Andy Milonakis star in the project. No further specifics about it are available at this time.

29 July 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Adi Shankar To Direct Watchmen-Inspired Superhero Drama Gods And Secrets For HBO

29 July 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Adi Shankar, the producer behind the 'Bootleg Universe' one-shot films Power/Rangers & The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and 2012's Dredd will make his directorial debut with HBO's Gods And Secrets. According to Deadline, Shankar will team up with Stewart Yost to co-direct this dark superhero drama that's said to be inspired by Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel, Watchmen. The drama will feature an original team named 'Guardians Of Justice', and explore the more secretive and shady aspects of celebrity culture by applying it to superheroes. The series is set to star WWE's Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga), Kellan Lutz (The Legend Of Hercules), Sharni Vinson (You're Next) and Andy Milonakis. The core premise appears intruiging, while the project's placement on HBO should be enough to pique most people's interest. The cast is admittedly rather uninspiring, but Shankar has impressed in the past with his Bootleg one-shots. »

Watch: Jackie Chan & Adrien Brody in 'Dragon Blade' Official Trailer

22 June 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If you stand with us you will be butchered." Lionsgate has debuted the official Us trailer for Dragon Blade, a historic action epic from China directed by Daniel Lee, produced by & starring Jackie Chan. This "action spectacle on a grand scale" features the fight for the Silk Road when East and West collide, in a story about warriors fighting against warriors. Adrien Brody (screaming his heart out) stars as Tiberius, John Cusack stars as Lucius, Jackie Chan stars as Huo An, with Sharni Vinson as Lady Crassus, and Alice Aoki as the Queen. While the footage does look action packed, and that arrow-to-the-face shot is awesome, I'm not so sure about the rest of the hammy acting. Maybe they're just out-of-context scenes? Let's hope so. Here's the official trailer for Daniel Lee's Dragon Blade, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius (Adrien Brody) arrives with a giant »

Photo Reveals Original Ending of You’Re Next

7 May 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Actress Sharni Vinson and director Adam Wingard revisited their home invasion horror film, You're Next, via Twitter today, showing and discussing the alternate, original ending of the film. *Spoiler warning for those who haven't seen You're Next.*

You're Next fans will remember that the movie came to a close with one very unlucky cop stepping into a booby trap, ending the film on a memorable macabre note and leaving Erin (Sharni Vinson) as the sole survivor.

But today via Twitter, Vinson revealed a new photo that shows Erin with a bullet hole in her head, her body partially resting against Crispian (A.J. Bowen), her dead, former boyfriend. Wingard mentions that in the original ending, Erin was shot in the head by the cop. That ending was filmed and captured in the still that's shown below.

Found the proof! @AdamWingard #YoureNext "The Original Ending"- Shot in the head - »

You’re Next Filmmakers Return To Horror For The Woods

5 February 2015 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After delivering two big old blasts of genre fun with home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and John Carpenter riff The Guest, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are diving back into horror for their next collaboration. Lionsgate recently snagged the pair for The Woods, a mysterious horror film that Wingard will direct from a script by Barrett.

Not much is known about the project, though it will focus on a group of college students on a camping trip who “discover they are not alone.” A few years ago, such a generic premise (done to death by the Friday the 13th franchise, among others) would have made many horror aficionados groan in agony, but then along came Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s delightful The Cabin in the Woods, which turned the subgenre on its head to great effect. If Wingard and Barrett can pull off a similar trick (and if »
