Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson Head to Meadowland

3 hours ago

We know next to nothing about the upcoming flick Meadowland other than the basic plot and that it's a psychological thriller (whatever that means). Neither does anyone else for that matter, except for those involved. Still, in case you're interested...

THR is reporting that Olivia Wilde (pictured) and Luke Wilson will star in the flick, which Reed Morano is directing for Bron Studios. Elisabeth Moss and Natasha Lyonne also are starring in the film, which was announced today by Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert.

The project, written by Chris Rossi, marks the feature directorial debut for Morano, who has served as cinematographer on The Skeleton Twins, Kill Your Darlings, HBO’s "Looking," and Frozen River.

Wilde and Wilson will play a couple dealing with their son’s disappearance.

Alex Kurtzman Ready to Wrap Up The Mummy

3 hours ago

First it was Len Wiseman who left Universal's proposed reboot of The Mummy. Then it was Mama director Andres Muschietti who flew the Eqyptian coop. Now, producer Alex Kurtzman is throwing caution to the wind and directing the flick himself.

THR reports that Kurtzman is in final negotiations to direct Universal’s reboot of The Mummy. Kurtzman, who with former writing partner Robert Orci wrote some of the biggest franchise players in the last decade, is already producing the movie with Chris Morgan.

Kurtzman and Morgan are weaving together a cinematic universe for Universal based on its movie monsters properties, and The Mummy is due to be the first one out of the gate, having a release date of April 22, 2016. The movie is important as it will set the tone and stage for the rest of the universe.

Plot details are being kept under wraps (*ahem*), but it’s understood »

Kino Lorber Releasing Seventies Snake-Charming Carrie Clone Jennifer on DVD and Blu-ray for the First Time

4 hours ago

Kind of a shame the Carrie remake wasn’t a bigger hit because part of me would like to believe that might lead to a remake of the obscure 1978 knock-off Jennifer. Thanks to Scorpion Releasing, “The Snake Goddess” will be reborn on Blu-ray.

Jennifer is the movie that answers the question as to what you would get if someone combined the bullied high school girl with magic powers seeking revenge on her cool kid tormentors premise (i.e., Carrie) with the social misfit with the ability to make animals do their bidding to get revenge against their tormentors trope (i.e., Willard).

Lisa Pelikan starred in the film (also known by the title Jennifer the Snake Goddess) as a shy young woman from a poor, rural family of Pentecostal snake charmers who finds herself the target of conniving rich kids at the snooty private school she attends via scholarship. They finally push her too far, »

Wesley Snipes Wants to Do Another Blade

6 hours ago

Back in 2004, before Dread Central was allowed to ejaculate its spunk upon the horror genre, Wesley Snipes was pretty vocal about not wanting to do another Blade movie after Blade: Trinity. Now that he's out of jail, his tune has changed... a lot.

"I’d be open to it," Snipes tells MTV regarding whether or not he'd return to the character. "We have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now."

Amazing what the passage of time and incarceration can do for a person! He truly has been rehabilitated.

File this one under "Just Talk" for now, kids!

Is 1987 Slasher Film Slaughterhouse Coming to Blu-ray?

8 hours ago

While many films prospered during the DVD era, the slasher subgenre is being treated with more love and respect in this Blu-ray age, and that suits me just fine! Case in point: The 1987 slasher flick Slaughterhouse will see an HD bow sometime next year.

We don't know who's releasing this little gem yet, but we were tipped off by a post on metal band Mortician's Facebook page:

So today I received a message from Rick Roessler, the producer and director of the cult classic film "Slaughterhouse," requesting the use of the Mortician song "Slaughterhouse" for inclusion in the ending credits of the Blu-ray release of the film. Where do I begin? Um... how fast can we say yes? Since that is a Relapse Records owned song, they will have to deal with them, but we of course said yes and hope it happens. Oh yeah and in case you didn't catch that. »

Last week we learned that Don Michael Paul (Lake Placid: The Final Chapter) is working on a reboot of Tremors for Universal, though specific details at the time were nonexistent. Hungry for more? Well then, read on for a whole lot more!

Per Movie Hole, it looks like the film will be more of a sequel than a complete remake, as the site reports that Michael Gross will once again be reprising the role of monster-killer Burt Gummer. Gross has to date appeared in every film in the franchise and even the short-lived TV series it spawned.

The new film, tentatively titled Tremors 5, is currently casting for a September kick-off in South Africa.

Anyone who's ever read a true fairy tale from The Brothers Grimm can assure you of one thing... they're not necessarily for children, and some of them are damned scary to boot! So what's next for these ancient terror tomes? A trip to The Library should yield some scares!
