A sequel to last year.s successful low-budget horror film The Tunnel is currently in the works.

The sequel . titled The Tunnel: Dead End . received development funding from Screen Australia earlier this month and will pick up the story years down the track. No shoot date has been set for the horror flick.

It.s a sequel creators Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey weren.t planning on. .Initially, we weren.t anticipating doing another Tunnel film but the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the original . as well as our fans clamouring for another on an almost daily basis . made us go back and give it a second thought,. Tedeschi and Harvey, of Distracted Media, said in a joint statement.

.We weren't going to go ahead unless we could find a story we were 100 per cent behind, which we now have, and are thrilled to have the support of Screen Australia.

Paul Schrader to direct Bret Easton Ellis’ Bait

Variety has reported that Paul Schrader – best known for writing the screenplays for such films as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull – has signed on to direct Bait, the long-awaited film from cult writer Bret Easton Ellis. Schrader has reportedly replaced Jonas Pate (Liar), who was previously attached to the project.

The script was first brought to light over two years, and sounds suitably nihilistic, a common trait in Ellis’ work. Bait tells the story of a disgruntled waiter, who becomes increasingly frustrated with the rich folks that surround him. After a group of youths humiliate him, he sneaks aboard their yacht, kills the captain, and whilst they are in the water, unleashes a school of sharks upon them (seriously).

Ellis’ work has also been given the silver-screen treatment previously, most notably 2000′s American Psycho.

'Shrink' Trailer Debuts

The trailer for the upcoming drama Shrink, starring Kevin Spacey, has arrived online. Click on the Trailer tab above to watch it right here.

Jonas Pate's Shrink is a striking, fast-paced exposé of the "other" Hollywood, featuring folks living outside their comfort zone and the people who put them there. Henry Carter (Kevin Spacey) is a psychiatrist with an A-list clientele, including a once-famous actress (Saffron Burrows), an insecure young writer (Mark Webber), and a comically obsessive-compulsive superagent (Dallas Roberts).

Henry is not in a good place, however. He has been asked to take his first pro bono case, a troubled teenage girl from a neighborhood far from the Hollywood hills. Considering his present state of mind, is he ready for the real-life troubles of a young woman who loves the world of movies he has become so jaded by?

At its core, Shrink is a study of control

"Yes Man" - New images added!

We have tons of pics in from Warner Bros. Pictures' "Yes Man," directed by Peyton Reed and starring Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Terence Stamp, Bradley Cooper, Sasha Alexander and Molly Sims. Reed was responsible for the 2006 comedy "The Break-Up" starring would-be couple Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn as well as 2003's romance "Down with Love" with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. The comedy is adapted from the Danny Wallace book by Nicholas Stoller, Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel and sees theatres on December 19th. Sure, I know what you're thinking "so, is this "Liar, Liar" all over again?" Well, in "Liar, Liar" Carey couldn't lie, now, he says yes to everything. Still, I don't know so much, this actually looks quite hilarious and anything (except the appalling "Cable Guy") with Carey in it, is worth a view for the most part.

Opening This Week

  • IFC
By Neil Pedley

Prom queens and street kings hold court this week at the multiplexes while the college professors of "Smart People" and "The Visitor" preside at the art houses.

"Body of War"

Talk show legend Phil Donahue hands over the mic to Iraqi war veteran Tomas Young in this hard-hitting documentary that contrasts Young's struggle to re-enter civilian life as a paraplegic and anti-war activist with archival footage of an overeager U.S. Congress and what the filmmakers view as their hasty decision to greenlight the invasion. Although the film, co-directed by Donahue and Ellen Spiro, was named best documentary of 2007 by the National Board of Review, "Body of War" has earned equal attention for its soundtrack led by two tracks from Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, with all proceeds going to the non-profit organization Iraq Veterans Against The War. (Check out our interview with Spiro and Donahue.)

Opens in New York.
