Video: Making of The Walking Dead Season 5′s New Locations

18 hours ago

Much of AMC’s The Walking Dead has been filmed in the woods and sprawling rural landscape of Georgia, but in Season 5 we’ll see an urban return to some extent. This departure from the countryside results in a little trickier shooting scenario for the cast and crew, and in a new video, Location Manager Michael Reilly discusses working with communities while filming a post-apocalyptic world.

At Comic-Con, AMC officially announced that The Walking Dead Season 5 will premiere on October 12th, at 9:00pm Et/Pt. Similar to past seasons, there are a total of sixteen episodes that will be split into two parts. While specific air dates have not been announced for the second set of eight episodes, AMC has confirmed that the season will resume in February, 2015.

Underworld Reboot in Development, Writer Hired

19 hours ago

Fans of the vampires versus Lycans film franchise that began with 2003′s Underworld might be excited to learn that Lakeshore Entertainment is developing an Underworld reboot. A writer has been hired for the project that would bring the battle between the two formidable species of the night back to the big screen for the first time since 2012′s Underworld: Awakening.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lakeshore Entertainment has hired Cory Goodman to pen an Underworld reboot that Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing. Genre fans may remember Goodman as the writer of 2011′s Priest, which starred Paul Bettany and took place in a dystopian future where beast-like vampires reignite a war with the humans. Goodman also wrote the first draft of The Last Witch Hunter, an upcoming film starring Vin Diesel.

There’s no official word on whether or not Kate Beckinsale will appear in this new Underworld movie. »

New Screenshots from Resident Evil Remastered

20 hours ago

Originally released for PlayStation in 1996 before being remade for Gamecube in 2002, Resident Evil ushered in a new standard for survival horror gaming. Capcom is celebrating the game’s legacy with a remaster of the 2002 remake for current and next-gen platforms, and we have a batch of screenshots from the graphically upgraded release that shows the mansion more clearly than you might remember.

Capcom’s remastered version of Resident Evil will be available digitally for the PC, PS3, PS4, XBox 360, and XBox One beginning in early 2015 in North America and Europe. Main characters Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, along with the zombies and other creatures they encounter within the mansion, will be a far cry from their blocky depictions in the 2002 version, as Capcom has given the game a 1080p look for next-gen consoles. Also featured is a new scrolling camera that flexibly focuses on moving characters.

In mid-October, viewers will be reunited with Rick Grimes, Carl, Michonne, and a host of other familiar faces when AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres. Like previous ones, this season will see new people from the comic book enter the show and we now have our first photo of a highly anticipated character from the paneled page: Father Gabriel Stokes.

He appeared for an instant in The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer, but EW has unveiled the first photo of Father Gabriel Stokes, giving us a better look at the key character from Robert Kirkman’s comic book series. Father Gabriel was introduced in issue #61, so fans of the comic have been waiting quite awhile to see this character depicted on the small screen. On the show, Father Gabriel is played by Seth Gilliam (The Wire, TV’s Teen Wolf).

Alexandre Aja to Direct The 9th Life of Louis Drax, Starring Jamie Dornan

27 August 2014 12:10 PM, PDT

From the revenge-via-circular-saw High Tension to the skin-shredding Piranha remake, director Alexandre Aja has memorably dunked past pictures in the blood bucket. But with his adaptation of author Joe Hill’s novel, Horns, coming out this Halloween, Aja has just signed on to helm another book-to-screen project that’s more psychological thriller than bloodbath: The 9th Life of Louis Drax.

Based on the 2004 novel by Liz Jensen that follows a boy plagued by violent occurrences, The 9th Life of Louis Drax will star actor Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall) as Dr. Allan Pascal, who tries to figure out the mysteries surrounding 9-year-old Louis Drax’s near-fatal accident. Aja will direct off a script by first-time scribe Max Minghella (who co-stars in Horns). Shooting on the Miramax film is set to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada. We have the official press release with full details below.
