From producer James Wan (Saw, Insidious) and starring Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello (A History of Violence), Frank Grillo (End of Watch, The Grey), and Dustin Milligan (Slither, TV's "90210"), comes a startling new film that combines found footage with classic genre filmmaking to take you behind the scenes into a modern day »

Back in November, Maria Bello signed on to star in an untitled thriller from Dimension Films and producer James Wan. We hadn't heard anything about the project since then. Today, we have word that the project is finished shooting, and is officially being titled Demonic. We also have the latest synopsis.
"Demonic takes place after the massacre of five college students in an abandoned house. As investigators begin to unravel the murders, they uncover clues to what began as an innocent ghost-hunting excursion but eventually turned into a terrifying escapade involving the house itself."
Hey, wait a second. Didn't James Wan say that he was done making horror films and Insidious: Chapter 2 was going to be his last? Well, that still appears to be the plan. But we'll be seeing his name attached to at least one more horror flick headed our way next year.
There's been a project listed on Wan's IMDb page for a while now that bears the title (or lack thereof) "Untitled James Wan Thriller," aka House of Horror, and the website Desde Hollywood broke the news today that the movie has finally been given a proper name. Currently in post-production, the film will be called Demonic, and you can expect to find the words "James Wan Presents" attached to that title.

We’ve been talking about James Wan’s House of Horror since early 2011, but the movie has finished filming and is now titled Demonic. Produced by James Wan, Demonic was directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood) and filmed in Baton Rouge earlier this year. The script was written by Max La Bella and is based on an original idea from James Wan:
“The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre: five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home. Fresh on the scene, detective Mark Lewis and the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein, question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying, and the suspect claims the responsibility doesn’t lie with any of the inhabitants, but with the house itself. »

The name James Wan has gained an enormous amount of cache in the horror community in the past few years mostly thanks to terrific horror offerings such as 'Insidious' and 'The Conjuring'. So we've all been looking forward to his newly produced genre effort formerly known as 'House of Horror'. It's been months since we've heard anything from the project which has now reportedly moved into post-production and even more importantly has had a title change. 'Demonic' is the new heading to this Wan presented feature from director Will Canon and scribe Max La Bella. The flick stars Maria Bello ('The Dark'), Frank Grillo ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Cody Horn ('End of Watch'), Scott Mechlowicz ('Eurotrip'), Aaron Yoo, Megan Park and Dustin Milligan ('Shark Night'). Hopefully we'll have a release date on this real soon. »

Channing Tatum to direct Magic Mike 2? Channing Tatum, whose White House Down opens this evening in North America, may co-direct the sequel to his 2012 sleeper domestic hit Magic Mike. Unlike the original film, directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and loosely based on Tatum’s own experiences as a stripper, the star of The Vow and 21 Jump Street told The Hollywood Reporter that the aptly titled (at least for now) Magic Mike 2 "will be a road-trip movie, and it will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama. The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences." (Photo: Channing Tatum in a rare non-shirtless moment in Magic Mike.)

Channing Tatum, star of original film, says follow-up may be his own directing debut
Tatum announced in September 2012 that he was aiming to direct the follow-up to Soderbergh's acclaimed tale of Florida male strippers, which was based on Tatum's own youthful experiences. Now, he says that the Oscar-winning film-maker, who retired from directing for the cinema this year, has agreed to moonlight as director of photography should the project move forward.
Tatum told the Hollywood Reporter that the sequel might adopt a less serious tone than its predecessor. "It will be a road-trip movie, and it will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama," he said. »

Remember ten years ago when you would be in HMV looking at a DVD box set of something like The West Wing and then unfolding the twenty pound note in your pocket and wondering whether to part with all that cash for something you had never seen? You had just heard that someone somewhere liked it, but for that £30 you could get two films like Bad Boys 2 and Kill Bill volume 1!
These were difficult times my friends, and more often than not £30 would go down the drain and you would watch three episodes of whatever series it was and decide it wasn’t for you. Well thanks to modern technology and its mission to kill DVD, Blu-Ray and whatever other physical media dinosaur you prefer, this dilemma is a thing of the past.
Nowadays you can go onto Lovefilm, Netflix, BT Vision or whatever else and stream whole seasons of TV for almost nothing. »

Saoirse Ronan as a child assassin? No, this isn’t the sequel to 2011's Hanna. Violet & Daisy, the directorial debut of Oscar-winning Precious screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher, finds Ronan as a teen hitwoman with Mad Men actress Alexis Bledel as her partner in crime. Their cut-and-dry world of killing (punctuated by their love of pop princess Barbie Sunday, played by Cody Horn) hits a snag when they are enlisted to off James Gandolfini’s mysteriously sad Michael, who seems all too eager to go.

I remember wanting to see Violet & Daisy when it premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival, but it was scheduled on the last day, in a tiny theater, after I and most reviewing press had already left town. The screening was met with virtual silence. Considering it's a teenage assassin feature starring Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan as the titular characters and serves as the directorial debut of Geoffrey Fletcher, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Precious, I would have thought it would have garnered some more attention. I, at the very least, remained intrigued if not disappointed by the fact they seemed to be trying to hide it from the critics so early in the game. After finally seeing it two years later, I can understand why there may have been some trepidation in premiering it in front of a wide swath of reviewing press, who would likely dismiss it based on »

Geoffrey Fletcher's Violet & Daisy opens June 7th via Cinedigm and also includes Machete Kills star Danny Trejo as well as Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James Gandolfini and Cody Horn. Fletcher (Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Precious) directs and scripts the film, and also produces with Bonnie Timmerman. This new addition is the Russian version of the poster. Violet (Bledel) and Daisy (Ronan) are a pair of gum-cracking teenage assassins who casually snuff out crime figures in New York City, distracted only by the fact that a concert by their favorite pop idol Barbie Sunday has suddenly been canceled. Determined to raise cash for some Barbie Sunday dresses, the duo takes on a new hit job »
The trailer for Geoffrey Fletcher's upcoming movie "Violet & Daisy" has arrived, and it definitely is not what we were expecting. The flick stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins who love their line of work but are drawn into a hit they don't quite understand and quickly get in over their heads. It seems like a simple enough premise, but the trailer reveals that the movie could actually be much more.
First of all, it's a whole lot funnier than the story would lead one to believe. There's a certain tongue-in-cheek quality to the trailer that is intriguing, but it's unclear if that's indicative of the movie as a whole or just the marketing. Hopefully it's the latter, as one of the main plot points in "Violet & Daisy" is that the girls take on a hit so they can have enough money to buy dresses.

Violet & Daisy - Trailer

Violet & Daisy is the directorial debut of Geoffrey Fletcher, screenwriter of Precious, and I remember when it play the Toronto Film Festival in 2011 on the very last day of the fest once pretty much everyone had already left town. As a result, virtually no one saw it and no one really talked about it. If that doesn't speak to its quality then I don't know what does. Flash forward almost two years later and Cinedigm Entertainment has picked it up and apparently will release it in theaters this June, though a specified date hasn't been announced and I doubt it will be in too many theaters. The film features Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel in the title roles as two teenage assassins who accept what they think will be a quick-and-easy job, until an unexpected target throws them off their plan. James Gandolfini, Danny Trejo and Cody Horn co-star. Today »

A new trailer for Academy Award-winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher’s (Precious) first directing venture Violet & Daisy has been released. The film centers on two young female assassins, played by Saiorse Ronan (Atonement) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), who set out for what they think will be a quick and easy hit, but turns into something much more complicated when their target throws a wrench in the works. The marketing and posters for the film thus far have seemed to be going for that pulpy and modern pop take on young women in today’s society, like Spring Breakers, but the trailer gives off a tone that seems a bit muddled. It has elements of quirky comedy and a more serious and dire consequences drama, but not a clear vision that can be derived just from the trailer.
