Kevin Bacon Is James Gunn's Villainous Drug Dealer In Super

18 December 2009 10:00 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What happened to Kevin Bacon? Back in the '90s he was a huge star, doing movies like Tremors, A Few Good Men and Apollo 13, but sometime in the past decade he kind of fell off the map, only showing up for roles in major films every few years, like Mystic River and Frost/Nixon. The most notable thing he's done in the past year was losing all of his money to Bernie Madoff. Perhaps that was for the best though, because now he needs to make his money back, and what better way than to have a major role in a superhero flick? ...Kind of. Screen Daily has discovered that Bacon has joined the cast of James Gunn's superhero comedy Super, which is currently filming in Louisiana. Bacon will play the film's main baddie, a slick drug-dealer named Jacques who gets a gets a woman hooked on drugs, »

The Ground is Shaking Again… Must Be "Tremors"!

4 December 2009 5:03 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Remember the fantastic Tremors films with the truck-sized, man-eating worms and Michael Gross as NRA enthusiast, Burt Gummer? Now remember the Tremors: The Series show that premiered on the Sci Fi Channel back in 2003? Oh… No? Well it was good and now you can own it on DVD!

TV Shows on DVD have announced that the cult classic series will finally be released on DVD on March 9th, 2010. The series picked up where the third film in the popular Universal series, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, left off and introduces new characters and established more mythology to the worms and other creature. The show lasted thirteen episodes (which were aired out of order, mind you) before Sci-Fi cancelled it. The show can be found on Hulu, but without the pilot and a couple of other episodes and it's good to watch the show in it's intended order. The 3-Disc »

Infestation (2009)

9 October 2009 2:43 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Written and directed by Kyle Rankin

Featuring Chris Marquette, Ray Wise, Brooke Nevin

First Look Studios DVD

Review by Matthew Funk

Infestation seeks no deeper meaning than an orgy of survival horror against an inexplicable man-eating insect assault. Its title has no profound connotation. It does not attempt social commentary. It is what it is. And what it is, is pretty damn satisfying...

At the core of Infestation is a tried-and-true story arc: The heroic journey. Leading man, Cooper goes from being a hedonistic shirker to getting the girl, getting the glory and getting to butcher a lot of animated bugs. He suffers mightily in the process. This is the same arc that “Chosen Ones” like Cooper have featured in since Babylonians got it in their head to write down some of the mythical mutterings they traded over sacrificial fires. It follows this formula so concisely that audiences craving more »

Zombified: Horror Franchises That Rob Zombie Should Tackle After 'Halloween'

25 August 2009 9:00 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Unfamiliar with Rob Zombie’s special brand of filmmaking? Watch the video for his song “Dragula” below. In just three minutes and forty-eight seconds, you get a nigh on perfect sense of the man’s personal style. More than his love of gore, his sense of gallows-ready humor and an obvious fondness for the color red, it betrays Zombie’s fandom. The guy really, really loves his horror movies.

His feature length work, originals “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects” play like over-enthusiastic love letters to seventy years of scary cinema. Horror gave back by letting him play with one of its favorite toys a couple years back. Zombie got to remake “Halloween” in 2007, which he did such a great job with that he was allowed to turn right around and make "Halloween II," which hits theaters this Friday. The sequel makes me a little sad though. It »

John Carpenter Takes Us 'In The Mouth Of Madness' For Today's eBay Prop-Watch

14 July 2009 1:30 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Today's pick is kind of deep cut, but it's so freaking cool that I had to give it a shout. In 1994, director John Carpenter released a horror flick called "In the Mouth of Madness." If you haven't seen it, you should. Critics didn't love it and, I'll admit, there are some gaping flaws. It nonetheless remains an atmospheric, incredibly creepy scarefest with deep-rooted influences from literary horror genius H.P. Lovecraft.

Sam Neill stars in "Madness" as John Trent, an insurance investigator tasked with looking into the mysterious disappearance of acclaimed horror novelist Sutter Cane (Jurgen Prochnow). Since Cane's disappearance leaves his latest book unfinished, the publisher calls Trent in to find out what happened. The investigation leads Trent to the town of Hobb's End -- a fictional location named in the title of Cane's unfinished book -- where some unusual stuff starts to happen.

Those books comprise the collected works of Sutter Cane. »

T.J. Hooker Heading to the Big Screen

8 July 2009 2:55 AM, PDT | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Variety reports that the 80's TV series T.J. Hooker, which starred William Shatner as a police detective who returns to his old job as a patrol sergeant after his partner is killed, is getting a big-screen adaptation.

The series, which ran for five seasons on two networks as a serious crime drama, will be an action comedy on the big screen and concentrate on Hooker and his relationship with his father (Shatner, perhaps?).

Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King) is in talks to direct, while writing partners Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson (Wild Wild West, Tremors) will be in charge of the script. No actors have been cast yet.

With Hooker racing to theaters, is Hardcastle and McCormick far behind? It may even help Magnum P.I. get off the ground.

T.J. Hooker gets promoted to the movies

6 July 2009 12:54 PM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

If it worked for Star Trek, why not for T.J. Hooker? The man that created the hour-long cop show that was a staple on ABC's line-up in the early 1980s wants to bring the L.A. beat street cop to the big screen, but where the original Hooker was an action-drama the movie is being envisioned as an action-comedy. With a name like "Hooker" that makes sense, donnit?

Rick Husky was the creator of T.J. Hooker and he's attached as a producer on the film along with David Foster and Ryan Heppe. Director Chuck Russell of The Scorpion King and The Mask fame is working out a contract that would see him call action on the set of the film while screenwriters Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson (the Tremors series, Wild Wild West) will write the story. Variety found out that Maddock and Wilson's take on the movie Hooker will »

Get Ready for "T.J. Hooker" the Movie!

6 July 2009 10:55 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

"T.J. Hooker" will get the movie makeover as an action comedy!

The hit TV show from the 80s gets its movie adaptation from producers David Foster, Ryan Heppe, and series creator Rick Husky.

Chuck Russell, the guy who gave us "The Scorpion King" and "The Mask" is negotiating to direct.

The film version will focus on the relationship between our hero, T.J., and his dad. But I don't know how the writing team of Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson will make the characters and the plot interesting. The writing duo gave us "Wild Wild West" (I know, not a good sign) and many "Tremors" films (yeah, definitely not a good sign!).

No word yet on the cast, or whether William Shatner, the original Sgt. Thomas J. 'T.J.' Hooker, will make a cameo. What about series originals Adrian Zmed and Heather Locklear?

For now, let's take a look »

T.J. Hooker Movie Headed to the Big Screen

6 July 2009 6:23 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Someone stop the madness! Yet another '80s property is being prepped for the big screen: the William Shatner-fronted cop show T.J. Hooker! According to Variety [1], Chuck Russell (The Blob, Eraser, The Scorpion King) is in talks to direct, with the screenplay being penned by Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson (Tremors, Short Circuit, Ghost Dad). Hey wait a minute... maybe I'm interested in this after all. I must admit, I don't remember much about the TV show, which may have been just slightly ahead of my time (it ran from 1982 to 1986). It was produced by Aaron Spelling and in addition to the Shatman it also starred Heather Locklear, Adrian Zmed, James Darren and Richard Herd. Shatner played Thomas "T.J." Hooker, a detective who returned his former position as a beat cop after his partner was killed. The movie will maintain the blend of action and comedy that the series was known for, »

The Tj Hooker Movie Is Moving Forward

6 July 2009 5:58 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Stay with this story for the frightening clue that the Tj Hooker movie is actually going to star William Shatner. It's worth it for the shudder factor. Variety have named Chuck Russell as the director out in the lead for the Tj Hooker gig. The screenplay is being written by Brent Maddock and SS Wilson, who previously took up pens for Tremors, Short Circuit and Ghost Dad. While the 80s TV series was a straight up cop action drama, his movie is being pegged as a comedy, perhaps inevitably. The plot details available from Variety are vague but perhaps very telling, revealing that the story "focuses on the relationship between the title character and his father". There was no father in the original set-up, so I think I can sniff out the gimmick here. This new Tj Hooker will be, I guess, 'the next generation'. My hunch is that Shatner »

No Degrees of Separation

28 February 2009 4:52 AM, PST | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Six degrees, two degrees, no degrees. Kevin Bacon walks amongst us. If you live in N.Y.C. you will have seen him here or there. Ditto if you surf your TV for late night moving pictures. He is a chameleon in some ways. Appears in movies, maybe not in the forefront, that have defined Americans and our culture in every decade he has worked, and he has worked plenty, although you'd be hard-pressed to find fans and critics raining the same praise on him as they do his peer Sean Penn. Too bad, because he has maintained a steady and dignified career. From highbrow dramas to comedies, science fiction to horror flicks, and even animation (the voice of Balto). From Animal House in 1978, the original Friday the 13th in 1980, not to mention Diner and Footloose from that same decade, even my son's favorite dark monster comedy Tremors in 1990.
