FX is ready to cross "The Bridge."
The cable network has announced Thursday (May 23) that its newest original drama series will premiere on Wednesday, July 10 at 10 p.m. Et. "The Bridge" is a present-day crime thriller that explores the tensions on the Us-Mexico border, starring Diane Kruger ("Inglorious Basterds") and Demian Bichir ("Weeds").
When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Kruger) from El Paso Pd must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Bichir), to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border. The case quickly pulls the charming and cunning Marco and strict, off-putting Sonya into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.

[Warning: The Following Season 1 Spoilers Below]
The season finale of The Following has come and gone, and we’ve already moved on to details about season2. We still have plenty of questions like whether or not serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is still alive, are there new followers, and what happens after that surprise cliffhanger?
Answers won’t come until season 2 – likely in the company of more questions and mysteries – and while some fans might be ready to jump ship after the conclusion of the first season, it might be comforting to know that series creator Kevin Williamson, the man behind the Scream franchise, planned this tale through season 3.
Speaking with TV Line, executive producer Marcos ...

Paul Risker continues his Terry Gilliam Retrospective...
American director John Huston once remarked, “The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on and one day you die. That is all there is to it.”
As strange as it may sound, this to all intents and purpose could be considered a nice way to consider Gilliam’s career to date. Not necessarily the idea of loneliness, though it is not difficult to imagine this maverick director having felt such a burden, but rather Huston’s phrasing of taking “a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on.”
That said, this expression would not apply exclusively to these two filmmakers, but rather every filmmaker past, »

Recently on FEARnet, my fellow writer Tyler Doupe listed the top ten out-of-print horror films that fans go nuts over. Mark Herrier’s Popcorn (1991) is at the top of the list – and no surprises there – fans and distribution companies have been trying to get this film re-released for a few years now. There have been Kickstarter campaigns, social media campaigns – you name it – fans have tried it.
Popcorn is an interesting little film that came up against a few major hurdles during production; director Alan Ormsby was fired and replaced by Mark Herrier, and lead actress Amy O’Neill was also fired, and replaced by Jill Schoelen. Popcorn has reached such cult status that a VHS tape will run you up to $80+ on Amazon, Ebay, and other collector sites. Released on VHS in 1991 by Sony Pictures Home E, Popcorn also had a DVD release in 2001 through Elite Entertainment. Do I »

The director, who oversaw all four Scream films, confirmed that he has been approached about adapting the movie series for TV, following news last week that MTV had ordered a pilot for a potential new show.
In a series of tweets, the 73-year-old said: "A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series.
"It's true I've been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script.
"If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not."
Craven said last year that a fifth movie in the series was not in the works.

Let’s do this fast – a TV series based on the Scream movies is now officially in the works! Do we really need Scream pilot? I have a feeling that it will suck, but who cares, MTV apparently already has a potential director. Guess who? Wes Craven, of course, and you know what that means. Yeah, my friends, they’re (un)fortunately quite serious about the whole thing… When it comes to Wes Craven (man who stands behind all four Scream movies), I’m a little bt confused. A few months ago he tweeted “No news on “Scream 5” yet” and also added: “You guys really want another...

"The Weekend Rent offers quick-hit suggestions of what to watch at home to get psyched for new releases in theaters, on Friday." "Sequels suck. By definition they're inferior films," says film geek Randy (Jamie Kennedy) in Scream 2. And although Scream 2 didn't suck and was actually a solid follow-up, few would argue that it is better than Scream. In the case of Iron Man 3, which rockets into theaters today and launches Marvel's so-called Phase Two of movies, here is a rare sequel that surpasses both its predecessors on every level thanks to Shane Black's direction and script as well as Robert Downey Jr.'s more personal performance. It's rare—extremely rare—that a sequel ends up being superior to its original, but Iron Man 3...

After being heavily rumoured in late 2012, MTV have confirmed that they are moving ahead with plans to turn the daddy of the “horror-comedy” slashers, Scream, in to a TV show. The network has ordered a 60-minute pilot to be developed with the aim of it being turned in to a full series if said pilot gets good reviews; the initial news was then followed up by the confirmation that Wes Craven, the director of all four of the Scream movies, is in talks to direct that pilot.
It’s not too surprising to see MTV move to try and corner part of the “horror TV” market, given the success of American Horror Story. While the network hasn’t revealed exactly how the movie will be converted to the smaller scream, if it’s successful we could be seeing a lot more TV remakes of films – in some ways, an ironic »

Last week, it was reported that MTV was working on adapting the bloated film franchise of Scream to television. Wes Craven was rumored to be involved, and perhaps directing the pilot. The famed filmmaker had a chance to talk about that possibility on Twitter. It’s surely not a definite:
“A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series…It’s true I’ve been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script. If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not.”
That’s a fairly pat statement to make, but it’s clear he’s cautious about getting back into the saddle. And who wouldn’t? Hopefully they get someone new to put a different spin on the series. »

MTV has already ordered a pilot of a new horror series based on Wes Craven's "Scream" film series, but will the director be involved? Initial reports say that he could potentially direct the show's one-hour pilot, but so far that has yet to be confirmed.
It seems that enough people asked Craven about whether he'll be a part of the "Scream" series that he decided to take to Twitter to give a status update. "A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series," he tweets. "It's true I've been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script. If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not."
As of yet, the "Scream" pilot does not have a writer or a concept, so it's understandable that Craven would want to wait until then before committing to being involved. It's been reported that »
I won't abide an unkind word about Don Coscarelli's 1979 cult classic horror flick known as Phantasm. Half a bizarre but cohesive thriller and half a compendium of bizarrely effective nightmare logic, the original Phantasm is one of the only movies to give me actual nightmares -- and I still think it holds up as a testament to the power of unique, weird, independent horror cinema.
I mention all of that because, well, as much as I adore Phantasm and many of Mr. Coscarelli's other films (Bubba Ho-tep, John Dies at the End, The Beastmaster, etc.) I've never really taken to the Phantasm sequels. It's a rare franchise in that all four chapters kept the same writer/director, and I'll always take unpredictable weirdness over lethargic formula, but where the first Phantasm was weird but mostly decipherable, the sequels are almost maddeningly confusing. Sure, each one has its charms, mainly »

Alrighty, kids! Time to shake off all that moss and swamp water because the Scream Factory has just revealed its official artwork for the release of Wes Craven's Swamp Thing. Check it out and count the days to see Arcane get his ass kicked!
Scream announced Craven’s 1982 adaptation of the DC comic book via its Facebook page, additionally confirming yet-to-be-announced extra features. This release will be the 91-minute U.S. cut, not the extended international version that was originally (and accidentally) released by MGM in 2000. As you may recall, that version created a minor stir when a mother purchased a copy of the film (which carries a PG rating) for her young son and was understandably shocked by the copious amounts of nudity throughout.

Since MTV announced that they have ordered a new pilot based on the 'Scream' franchise there has been a lot of talk revolving mostly around what the theme of the series would be and of course will franchise creator Wes Craven be involved? Craven (below) has been posting on Twitter in response to the many fan questions about whether he is indeed going to be involved with the new show and if he will be directing the planned pilot. Craven posted 'It's true I've been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script. If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not.' The MTV and Dimension Films co-production are still seeking writers for the pilot so just how this will all pan out is still up in the air at the moment. »
Director Wes Craven provided a response to the speculation of a Scream TV series potentially coming to MTV. The news about the horror guru directing the pilot arrived last week. Today, he took to Twitter to address the question of his involvement.

Scream was released December 20th, 1996 and stars Drew Barrymore, Kevin Patrick Walls, David Booth, Carla Hatley, Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Lawrence Hecht, Courteney Cox. The film is directed by Wes Craven. »
It would make sense to bring Scream to TV screens following creator Kevin Williamson’s success of The Following, which has just had its first season finale play across the globe. Williamson, as far as I can see, is not involved in the planned TV series, but it has been rumoured that series helmer Wes Craven was set to direct the pilot for the thing.
Overnight, the legendary horror director took to Twitter to discuss said rumours.
“A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series,” he said. “It’s true I’ve been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script. If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not.”

This has been his usual response concerning any involvement in the future of the Scream franchise.

“A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series. It’s true I’ve been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script… If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not,” Tweeted Craven regarding whether or not he would direct the pilot episode. I guess the possible scribes over at MTV have their work cut out for them.
Produced with Dimension Films, MTV is currently in search of writers for the one-hour project while Scream director Wes Craven is in discussions to direct the pilot. Should "Scream" receive a series order, it would be slated for a summer 2014 launch and would join »
