25 June 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rose McGowan has paid a personal cost for taking a stand against Hollywood sexism.

The Grindhouse and Charmed star last week disclosed an audition note asking actresses to "understand the context" of their scenes and wear a "form fitting tank" to show off their cleavage.

McGowan's tweet made waves across social media, but the actress and filmmaker has now revealed that she's been fired by her agent for speaking out against the film, an Adam Sandler comedy vehicle.

"I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bulls**t in Hollywood," she wrote.

I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #Bringit

Eli Roth, Knock Knock, and his impact on horror

11 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Eli Roth returns to the big screen with the Keanu Reeves-headlined Knock Knock. Wil looks back at his impact on horror...

It’s 13 years since Eli Roth made his debut with the grisly, inventive virus thriller Cabin Fever. And despite only directing four other full features since then — the latest of which, Knock Knock, is about to be released on June 26th — he’s made an indelible mark, a gory, bloody mark, on American horror cinema.

He’s one of that rare breed of directors, like a Scorsese or a Tarantino or a Hitchcock, that you know what they look and sound like. That aren’t just names behind a camera, but faces in other people’s movies, chat show guests, and have celebrity other halves. It doesn’t always mean that they are a great filmmaker, but it usually means that they are far more than just a person with technical skill. »

Jonny Quest Taking Off At Warner Bros. With Robert Rodriguez

26 May 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros.’ quest to turn Hanna-Barbera cartoon Jonny Quest into a live-action franchise is back on, now that Robert Rodriguez has climbed into the director’s chair.

The studio has been eyeing the cartoon, which originally aired back in the ’60s, as a family-friendly property for years. With Rodriguez on board, and also penning a script alongside Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean), expect the project to accelerate into production. The pair are rewriting a Black List script by Dan Mazeau.

The original series centered on a boy who accompanied his scientist father on adventures around the globe.

Though the original Jonny Quest series only lasted one season (it was canceled due to production costs), it lived on through syndication and was revived in »

Actor Tom Towles has died at the age of 65.

The character actor was a regular in Rob Zombie films and also starred in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer as a murderous sidekick, among many other movies.

Our buddy Tom Towles has died. He was a nice funny guy. We will miss him. #riptomtowles #halloween2007 #houseof1000corpses #thedevilsrejects

Zombie announced Towles's death on Sunday (April 5) on Facebook.

"I just got word that our buddy Tom Towles has died," he wrote. "He was such a great guy and I am so grateful that we got to work together several times. He will be really missed."

Towles starred in the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead and Zombie's first film House of 1000 Corpses in 2003.

Tom Towles, Actor in Horror Movies, Dies at 65

6 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Towles, a character actor who appeared in horror movies and had a recurring role on “NYPD Blue,” died April 2 after suffering a stroke. He was 65.

Though he did have a small role in 1975’s “Dog Day Afternoon,” Towles was more associated with the films of Rob Zombie, appearing in “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects,” Zombie’s 2007 reboot of “Halloween” and the fake Zombie-shot trailer for “Werewolf Women of the S.S.” included in the 2007 film “Grindhouse.”

Towles memorably played the repugnant Otis in 1986 indie “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and the obnoxious Harry Cooper in the 1990 remake of “Night of the Living Dead.”

Zombie remembered Towles on his Instagram page Monday, saying “He was a nice funny guy.”

 

Non-horror credits include “Mad Dog and Glory” (1993), “The Rock” (1996), “Doctor Dolittle” (1998) and 2006’s “Miami Vice.” His most recent film was 2008 horror comedy “Blood on the Highway.”

Danny Trejo Says 'Machete Kills Again...in Space' Will Actually Happen

6 April 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It looks like Machete is going to be the joke that just won't die. The first feature film debuted in 2010 after a faux trailer that came with Robert Rodriguez's half of the Grindhouse double feature sparked some interest among exploitation fans. And then the end of that first parody, there was a tease for a sequel, which inexplicably ended up in front of cameras and on the big screen in 2013 in the form of Machete Kills. It bombed at the box office hard, and while Mel Gibson was a fun addition to the cast, it started to feel like the joke had run its course. But hold on, because the teaser at the end of Machete Kills may become a movie too. If you've taken the time to check out Machete Kills, then you know at the end there was a tease for the next installment, Machete Kills Again. »

Machete Kills Again… In Space Filming This Year, Says Danny Trejo

5 April 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Evidently undeterred after Machete Kills got utterly slaughtered at the box office in the fall of 2013, taking in a measly $15 million at the box office and never recouping its slight $20 million budget, actor Danny Trejo confirmed recently that he and director Robert Rodriguez are still proceeding with their previously planned third installment, titled Machete Kills Again… In Space.

Speaking with Halloween Daily News at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina, last weekend, Trejo seemed gung-ho about the prospect of again playing the Mexican ex-federale in a third film, reporting that plans have been set in motion to make the exploitation flick later this year:

“Robert [Rodriguez] and I are going to start to do ‘Machete Kills in Space,’ so that’s going to be awesome. Absolutely. We’re going to be working on it this year.”

Machete is one of the more unlikely big screen protagonists in recent cinematic history. »

Danny Trejo Confirms Machete 3 is Happening This Year

5 April 2015 3:16 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After putting together a fake "Machete" trailer for "Grindhouse," director Robert Rodriguez decided to turn "Machete" into a feature film. It was released in 2010 with plans of completing an entire trilogy. But the movie grossed only $44 million worldwide. Surprisingly, a sequel, called "Machete Kills," was greenlit. It was released in 2013 and ended up with a disappointing $15 million. But despite terrible results, "Machete" star Danny Trejo just revealed that there are already plans for the third film to go into production. "Robert and I are going to start to do 'Machete Kills in Space,' so that's going to be awesome," he confirmed. "We're going to be working on it this year." »
