Wonder Woman 2 Brings in Expendables and Godzilla Writer
Warner Bros. is certainly wasting no time moving forward on Wonder Woman 2. Just two days after Wonder Woman 2 director Patty Jenkins closed her deal to direct the superhero sequel, the studio has brought in writer Dave Callaham (The Expendables) to work on the script with the director and Geoff Johns. Unfortunately, no story details for the sequel have been confirmed, but with a new writer on board, we may hear more about this superhero sequel soon.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, revealing that both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns had been working on a Wonder Woman 2 treatment for the past several months, and now Dave Callaham will join the writing fold. Patty Jenkins has talked about setting this sequel in two very different time periods. Just after the theatrical release of Wonder Woman, the director stated that she plans to bring the story back to present day for the sequel,

‘Fargo’: Will There Be a Season 4 of FX Series?
FX chief John Landgraf weighed in on the potential for “Fargo” Season 4 during the TCA summer press tour on Wednesday.

“We haven’t heard the idea from Noah [Hawley] for what the fourth season would be,” Landgraf said. “What we’ve encouraged Noah to do is think about it and make sure he has an idea he’s excited about.”

“There’s at least some possibility he won’t have have that idea for quite some time,” he continued. “He has a really busy schedule because he’s working actively on the second season of ‘Legion’…and he has a burgeoning feature film career…we’re going to have to share him with our film studio and we’re going to have to figure out how to make that work.”

Season 3 of the series premiered in April of this year, with the new season starring Ewan McGregor as twin brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy. It

John Romero reveals who Doom Guy was based on

Matthew Byrd Jul 21, 2017

Remember the cover of 1993's Doom? The model for Doomguy was none other than game designer John Romero...

We're betting that anyone who played 1993's Doom during their youth can conjure a mental image of the game's cover in their head. Before Doom was a franchise and before first-person shooters were a multi-billion dollar genre, Doom's iconic cover lured in many players with the promise of a uniquely brutal action experience.

Now, game designer John Romero has finally revealed who the infamous "Doom Guy" on the game's cover is modeled after.

In the latest post on his blog, Romero stated that the Doom Guy's design began when the team brought in a male model so that game illustrator Don Punchatz could use him as a point of reference.

"The body model took his shirt off and started posing with our plasma gun toy.

Dwayne Johnson Isn’t Your Average Superstar: How The Rock Has Built a Career With Smart Choices

Dwayne Johnson Isn’t Your Average Superstar: How The Rock Has Built a Career With Smart Choices
Like most famous people, Dwayne Johnson’s Wikipedia page includes a nifty sidebar that includes bare bones facts, like birthday and age, with a couple of lines reserved for “occupation.” Johnson’s “occupation” line is almost amusingly slim — it simply reads, “Actor, producer, singer, professional wrestler,” which is an understated way of saying “this guy does a lot.” And it doesn’t even mention his best-selling memoir, or his charity work, and “professional wrestler” hardly indicates the tremendous success he’s had in the ring.

And “actor”? That’s a very concise tribute to his blockbuster career on the big screen, one that’s amounted to dozens of credits and an estimated lifetime box office gross (domestic only!) that totals over $2.7 billion. With Johnson toplining the early summer’s biggest hit so far, the box office-dominating “Fate of the Furious” and a non-stop barrage of other features on the way,

The Lrm Interview with A United Kingdom’s Rosamund Pike

  • LRM Online
Hard-working British actress, Rosamund Pike, has remained quite visible in a number of films since her breakout role as “Bond girl” Miranda Frost in Die Another Day. Despite the vast number of films she’s appeared in, Pike only started to really get recognition on these shores when she starred in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, for which Pike received an Oscar nomination.

In between, she could be seen in a wide variety of films that include Pride and Prejudice, Doom, Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, and Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher. After a maternity break, Pike is reunited with another star from that latter film, David Oyelowo, for A United Kingdom from director Amma Assante (Belle).

In the film, Pike plays Ruth Williams, a British working class woman in the ‘40s, who encounters Oyelowo’s Seretse Khama, who happens to be the heir to the king’s thrown of Bechuenaland,

31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I Loved the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror icon in the making with Doom Head (Richard Brake) and the film is full of excellent performances.

The film, along with its two (on the Bluray) And four hour making of documentaries (the four hour doc is an exclusive to the Digital HD copy) , are hitting DVD/Bluray/Digital HD on December 20th, via Lionsgate. We’ll definitely be checking this one out and even as divisive as Zombie’s films tend to be, his making of’s are always epic. Will you be picking this one up?

Newswire: The Expendables co-writer is tackling The Wolf Man remake

  • The AV Club
Universal Pictures’ monsters universe will kick off in 2017 with an all-new The Mummy movie starring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe, after which Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man and more will get their chances to frighten new generations of moviegoers. The latest lycanthrope outing has gained plenty of traction in the last year, with rumors swirling about the possibility of Dwayne Johnson in the hairy lead role. The project is currently sans director, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, it has picked up a new screenwriter. The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham has been tapped to rework Aaron Guzikowski’s script.

In addition to sharing screenplay credits with Sylvester Stallone, the Doom scribe is also writing Zombieland 2 and a new Mortal Kombat movie. Callaham also wrote the pilot for the Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, which Amazon just ordered to series. So maybe the newest iteration of the ...

New Writer Hired for Universal’s The Wolf Man Movie

  • DailyDead
Universal is taking another step forward in getting the latest version of their Universal Monsters universe to the big screen, as they have hired another writer to pen their new The Wolf Man movie.

According to THR, Universal has hired Dave Callaham to work on a new draft of The Wolf Man. A previous version of the screenplay was written by Aaron Guzikowski (new Friday the 13th movie, Prisoners). In addition to having a story credit on 2014's Godzilla, Callaham co-wrote the screenplays for Doom and The Expendables, and has also worked on the script for the long in development Zombieland 2.

Based on the 1941 Universal movie of the same name (which starred Lon Chaney, Jr. in the titular role), The Wolf Man is part of the Universal Monsters universe that also includes Frankenstein's Monster, the Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Dracula.

Wolf Man reboot lands The Expendables' writer

Tony Sokol Oct 17, 2016

Universal hired a new writer to help bring The Wolf Man back to the screen...

It wasn’t the Wolf Man’s fault he walked so thorny, it was the screenwriter’s. Universal is rebooting its horror classics for a new generation. For the remake of the 1941 film The Wolf Man, which starred Lon Chaney Jr., they are handing over the wolfbane to Dave Callaham, who wrote the screenplays for The Expendables, Doom, Tell-Tale and the upcoming Zombieland 2.

Callaham will be re-writing the first draft which was written by Aaron Guzikowski, who in turn wrote the screenplays for Prisoners and Friday The 13th. Callaham’s Jean-Claude Van Johnson was recently picked up to series by Amazon.

Universal hasn’t given away much as far as plot for The Wolf Man remake, but we know it’s about the stout-hearted Larry Talbot, heir to the Talbot family fortune and castle.

’31′ Review

Stars: Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm MacDowell, Pancho Moler, Lew Temple, E.G. Daily, Richard Brake, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Meg Foster, Kevin Jackson, Jane Carr, Judy Geeson | Written and Directed by Rob Zombie

When it comes to Rob Zombie as a filmmaker I’ll admit I have something of a soft spot for his work. He knows his horror and never bows down for the constant calls to conform to the politically correct society that seems to dominate the entertainment world now. With the release of 31, the question is, has he managed to pull off another The Devil’s Rejects or is this more of a Halloween 2?

The first thing you’ll notice with the story of 31 is that it is in very familiar territory. A group of carnival employees (including of course Sheri Moon Zombie) are travelling cross-country on Halloween. They are soon kidnapped and are entered into

Film Review: 31

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ "Shall we do this Whitechapel-style, then?" Doom-Head (Richard Brake) asks, rhetorically, to final girl Charly (Sheri Moon Zombie), in the penultimate scene of 31, the latest offering from Rob Zombie, a director whose films are the very definition of marmite cinema. Some might find Doom-Head's line dripping in misogyny - given he is about ready to carve up an unarmed and thoroughly exhausted Charly - but that would be a misinterpretation. The dialogue is more self-reflective, perhaps to be taken as a horror filmmaker's cri de gore. It's also an aesthetic philosophy harking back not only to Jack the Ripper's most infamously brutal murders, but to Thomas De Quincey's observation that murder is art.

31 review – swastikas, chainsaws and psychopaths: a cinematic Jägerbomb

Rob Zombie’s zombie slasher exudes efficient self-assurance as a troupe of carnival workers become fodder in Malcolm McDowell’s bloodsport

Weirdly specific about the year his eighth feature takes place – 1976 – perhaps Rob Zombie is hoping some of early-slasher grit of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes will stick to him. He wishes: other than the minivan full of cavorting, toking, sideburned carnival workers abducted on Halloween to become fodder in a bloodsport conducted by Malcolm McDowell’s braying aristo, there’s nothing to date 31 to any period other than “time to die”. The handheld profligacy of the camerawork covers for a total vacuum of character motivation, history, or anything else to help the audience situate themselves. But, as the swastika-daubed Latino dwarves and chainsaw-wielding redneck clowns pile in, 31 exudes a self-assurance that takes hold anyway. Richard Brake’s leering psychopath Doom-Head, prone to Tarantino-esque soliloquys before burying the hatchet,

Review: Rob Zombie’s 31

Coming out swinging like a prize fighter, Rob Zombie’s 31 is not only his best film, but one of the best horror films of the year. It’s an experience that as a viewer, you’ll find impossible to forget, a blood soaked, horrifyingly vicious tale of a group of down and out carnie’s being abducted and thrust into a game aptly titled “31”, in which a series of Very memorable villains are set loose on them, making the kidnapped group have to literally fight for their lives.

What makes 31 so enjoyable and later on terrifying, is the fact that we’re given such a great setup with its characters. When we see the opening scene of Richard Brake’s “Doom Head” character giving a monologue to a soon to be victim, we know that this guy will later be a force of nature that the group will have to face.

Dwayne Johnson Almost Starred In A Saints Row Movie Before Thq Went Bust

Right around the time that the defunct video game publisher began to slide toward bankruptcy, it’s been revealed that Thq had mapped out early plans for a live-action Saints Row movie that almost featured Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in a starring role.

Word comes by way of a Fandom post by Nick Nunziata and Peter Aperlo – producer and screenwriter, respectively – who shed new light on the canned project that was officially shelved circa 2012. Boasting all of the irreverent sensibilities that the series is celebrated for, Thq’s doomed Saints Row film was billed as “a modern-day Escape from New York, only bigger and with that Saints Row attitude.” That’s quite the elevator pitch, and Johnson was likely high on the calling card following his appearance in Andrzej Bartkowiak’s middling Doom movie.

Indeed, out of the franchise’s zany legacy, Nunziata and Aperlo pointed to Saints Row 2 as

6 upcoming non-mainstream films to watch out for

Matt Edwards Sep 22, 2016

Here are some upcoming movies that might be hard to track down, but are well worth the effort of doing so...

Den of Geek, last month, attended the London FrightFest film festival to indulge in five days of genre films and social anxiety (our favourites).

You can only see so much of the line-up, due to the boring constraints of time, physics and human biology, but we saw a lot of films, a few of which we really need to tip you off about. Partly because you won’t want to miss them when they do get a general release in the UK, but also because they’re probably going to need your support.

Here are six upcoming genre films to keep an eye out for.
