A month or so ago we told you about Burying the Ex, Joe Dante's return behind the camera that stars Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene; and today we have your first look at the two leads along with a few more details.
Based on a short film of the same name, the Alan Trezza-penned script follows Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together.
Max discovers how controlling and manipulative Evelyn is, but he’s too scared to break up with her. When fate steps in and Evelyn dies in a freak accident, newly-single Max prepares to move on with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario). His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn rises from the grave and sets out to get her boyfriend back, even if that means turning him into one of the undead. Oliver Cooper plays Travis, Max's deadbeat »

You know the story: Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Girl dies and comes back as a zombie.
Well, that’s the story of Burying the Ex, a new romantic zombie comedy, or zom-com, as the cast and crew call it, starring Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek). EW was on set for an exclusive first look and a chance to talk with the stars and director.
Burying the Ex follows Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his incredibly beautiful but overbearing and manipulative girlfriend Evelyn (Greene). After they move in together, Evelyn is killed in a freak accident, »

The 49th Annual Chicago International Film Festival comes to a close tonight, but not without some special discoveries to be seen. I was lucky enough to catch the latest film from the Coen Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis, and was glad I took a chance on Wolfskinder, a worthy nominee in the “New Directors Competition.” After hearing Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider joke about Dracula 3D at Cannes 2012, I finally got to witness its craptitude with my own eyes. Reviews for the films are below.
Working the festival beat, I also partook in some interviews ready in the near future, including chats with David Frankel (director of The Devil Wears Prada and now the Paul Potts biopic One Chance), and the Polsky Brothers for The Motel Life, starring Stephen Dorff and Emile Hirsch. If all goes right tomorrow, I will also have an interview with Oscar Isaac for Inside Llewyn Davis. »

This show Helix is looking really, really promising. SciFiMafia.com attended a set tour and panel Q&A session last week in Montreal – more about that in the days to come – and this show could fill a real void in the science-fiction thriller arena. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) wasn’t at the panel session, but he did record this outline of the show which was released to attendees:

Marianne Maddalena is detailing the "pain and suffering" she suffered when her ex-boyfriend hacked into her office computer and installed a Gps tracking system on her car. Maddalena is a longtime partner of horrormeister Wes Craven and has been a producer on such films as the Scream series, Dracula 2000 and The Hills Have Eyes. But according to a lawsuit filed Friday in California federal court, the nightmare of being spied upon by someone close is the ultimate terror. As the complaint puts it, "When our privacy is taken, when our character is sullied by someone acting to be

News broke yesterday that Annapurna Pictures hired Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Pathfinder) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, Dracula 2000) to write a screenplay for the fifth film in the Terminator series. Both have put in their time in the B movie trenches, and are unexpected choices to guide the series to its next installment. The question these guys have been hired to answer is whether or not there’s any more story left to tell within the series. Most would argue no, but TV’s The Sarah Connor Chronicles offered some hope, even while the last two sequels left most fans cold. I happen to like the third film quite a bit. The first two are undisputed classics, but screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris found a solid reason for the third one to exist...

The Terminator franchise, which has been dormant onscreen since 2009’s Salvation, has nevertheless been clanking away in development. Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison paid a fortune for the rights a few years ago, and has since teamed up with brother David’s Skydance Pictures. Now Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been hired to write a script for the next instalment.Kalogridis’ name is familiar to fans of Terminator godfather James Cameron because she worked on the script and produced the first Avatar. She also wrote and produced Scorsese's Shutter Island and scripted Alexander for Oliver Stone.Interestingly, she also has a “Special Thanks” credit on a little film called Dracula 2000, directed by one Patrick Lussier. He’s also been behind such films as Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine and White Noise 2: The Light. David Ellison hired the pair to write something else that’s sci-fi flavoured based on an original idea, »

Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are coming together for another romp in The Terminator franchise.
Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been hired to pen the script for the fifth film in a franchise that refuses to die, just like the machines. Laeta has written Alexander, Pathfinder, Shutter Island, and also some work for Avatar and the TV series Birds Of Prey. Patrick Lussier’s pedigree is a little scarier, with My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry, along with Dracula 2000 on the resume, as well as a bunch of editing jobs in the horror realm. »

Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been hired to pen a script for the next Terminator film.

She has also produced Shutter Island and scripted Alexander for Oliver Stone. Lussier, the man behind Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine and White Noise: The Light, directed Dracula 2000, on which Kalogridis (more) »

While Megan Ellison has made her name on working with auteurs like Paul Thomas Anderson, Harmony Korine and Kathryn Bigelow, she's got blockbuster aspirations. Way back in the spring of 2011, she snapped up the rights to the "The Terminator" franchise, and while there has been plenty of speculation and rumor, there hasn't been much in the way of action. But last month, movement began with her brother David Ellison of Skydance ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Jack Reacher," "Star Trek Into Darkness") teaming up with her on "The Terminator," and now the project is taking on some fresh blood. Laeta Kalogridis ("Avatar," "Shutter Island") and Patrick Lussier ("Drive Angry," "Dracula 2000") are pairing up to write the movie. They certainly make an unlikely duo, but David Ellison seems to be a fan. He's already hired them to write another project, a sci-fi picture based »

The new Terminator film has taken another step forward closer to production. Last month we learned that Megan Ellison’s brother, David Ellison, had come aboard the project to co-produce the next installment of the franchise through his Skydance Pictures banner alongside Megan’s Annapurna Pictures, and now the producers have tapped a couple of writers to start work on the script. Deadline reports that Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will write the script for the new Terminator film, though further details are understandably being kept under wraps. Kalogridis previously penned the scripts for Shutter Island and Alexander, as well as the pilot for the TV series Bionic Woman. Lussier, meanwhile, was responsible for writing 2011’s Drive Angry and received a “story by” credit on Dracula 2000, which he also directed. As I mentioned, we know next to nothing about where this new Terminator stands in relation to the previous films, »
