D.O.A. Blood River Begins Shooting in Louisiana and Announces More Cast

A classic film noir is getting a remake and modern update.

Silver Plane Films and Kingfisher Media announced that the production for D.O.A. Blood River will start shooting this month in Louisiana.

The noir thriller is inspired by director Rudolph Mate’s 1950 thriller D.O.A.

D.O.A Blood River will follow Sam Collins as a pharmaceutical sales rep, who visits a small town in Louisiana to close a business deal of a lifetime. Collins enters a world of sex, corruption and murder—as he is poisoned with no antidote. In a search for answers, he turns to a local girl named Jesse, in which their path leads to a voodoo priestess that confirms Sam’s fate. With nowhere to go and no others to trust, Sam and Jesse are on the run from police detectives, the Mob and a corrupt sheriff who wants him dead.

The studio also announced Billy Flynn

Sollywood – South Africa's fledgling film genre

It was a matter of time before someone invented Sollywood, but making only positive films is an artistic straitjacket

Last week I caught the first Sollywood offering, Ingxoxo: The Negotiation – a romantic comedy but not as Richard Curtis would know it. The plot turns on the African custom of lobola, in which the family of a bride is compensated for her loss with a payment,

War of Gods Gets a New Title and Expands Its Cast

Just a few days ago we learned that Stephen Dorff has joined the cast of Tarsem Singh's War of Gods, and now comes word that the project has been renamed and added another actor to its already fairly impressive roster: two-time Oscar nominee John Hurt.

Box Office Mojo reports that going forward War of Gods will be known simply as Immortals. Hurt joins the previously announced Dorff along with Luke Evans (the underutilized Apollo in Clash of the Titans) as Zeus, Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, Henry Cavill (Blood River) as Theseus, and Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto as Phaedra. Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga) and Alan Van Sprang (Survival of the Dead) are rumored to be portraying Poseidon and Draco, respectively.

Synopsis:

A purported bastard who retains an allegiance to his mother despite the fact that he longs to join the quest of a king who is battling
