Slender Man Movie Gets Stomp the Yard Director

Get ready for some potentially terrifying horror movie goodness, because the Slender Man movie is finally happening. The internet legend has been practically begging for a big screen adaptation for some time, but now Screen Gems has finally put the puzzle together. A director has been hired and according to a new report, Slender Man will be shooting by spring this year.

Deadline is reporting that director Sylvain White has been tapped to bring Slender Man to life. He is best known for directing the dance movie Stomp the Yard, as well as The Losers, a somewhat under-appreciated comic book movie from 2010. He also has some experience in the horror genre, having directed I Will Always Know What You Did Last Summer. Granted, that isn't what one would call a memorable, or by any stretch of the imagination necessary horror movie, but it is enough to say he won't be coming at Slender Man blindly.

5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

  • Cinelinx
News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD. It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same. Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises!

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation. It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing. Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.

It’s a failure,

I Know What You Did Last Summer came in the wake of Scream, with self-referencial horror a hot trend in the late-90s. Kevin Williamson, creator of the Scream franchise, even provided the screenplay, with the movie earning over $125 million worldwide.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe headlined the original, which followed a group of teenagers who are stalked by a killer a year after they work together in covering up a fatal car accident. The movie spawned two sequels, 1998's I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, which included

Director Sylvain White Talks The Losers

Sylvain White has a varied background as a director starting with the 2006 slasher sequel I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer to the street-dancing drama of 2007's Stomp the Yard, but White has found a home in the comic book movie genre. With The Losers opening April 23, White is already at work adapting Frank Miller's Ronin. White told MTV that comic books have always been an interest for him, which is what drew him to the project.

Well, to tell you the truth, I grew up in Paris reading a lot of graphic novels — mostly European material, but some American stuff, too. So when I was looking for projects, I always looked into the graphic novel arena. What appealed to me about The Losers was that it wasn't the typical superhero-with-superpowers thing. It was based on real characters — realistic characters — and based in reality, like a lot of

First Official Photos of The Losers

Two photos from Warner Bros. comic book adaptation The Losers have made their way online.

The film’s log line is as follows:

After being betrayed and left for dead, members of a CIA black ops team root out those who targeted them for assassination.

Click the images to enlarge.

Whilst the comic itself is quite cool and the talented cast includes Jeffery Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Idris Elba (RocknRolla), Chris Evans (Sunshine), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), and Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid), I have been very skeptical about this project since Sylvain White took over directing duties.

If you are not familiar with White’s work, he is the man responsible for the atrocities known as Stomp the Yard and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. I will reserve judgement on The Losers until I actually watch the film, or at least a trailer,

James Wan To Direct and Co-Write Castlevania

Wan-tastic! Australian film-maker James Wan has been named as co-writer and director on the long awaited 'Castlevania' adaptation project. The movie, based on the Konami developed franchise of the same name, had Sylvain White ('I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer') originally set to direct. Wan, whose probably known best for co-creating the ever popular 'Saw' franchise, has had a quiet time of late as it's been nearly 3 years since his last two directorial ...

Castlevania Adaptation Is Dead

A Castlevania movie would seem pretty logical right now, right? Vampires are all the rage, video game adaptations have been popular for at least a decade now, and there's money to be made! But Bloody Disgusting has it from a good source that Paul W.S. Anderson's planned adaptation of the long-running video game is on hold. Sylvain White, who directed Stomp the Yard as well as the lesser known I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, had been picked to direct the story, which would have focused on the origins of the video game's Belmont clan of vampires. But hey, that's all in the past. The idea of a movie adaptation for this video game probably isn't entirely dead, but it won't be popping up very soon. Sorry if you're disappointed.

Paul W.S. Anderson’s Castlevania Movie is Dead

A big screen adaptation of Konami's Castlevania video game series has been in development for years now, but with Paul W.S. Anderson at the helm, it seemed destined to be just another terrible video game movie. When it was announced that Anderson would step back to take a producer role, there was a brief glimmer of hope, but then Sylvain White (Stomp The Yard, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer) was chosen to take his place [1] in the director's chair and everyone went right back to not caring. Ian Jeffers (Death Sentence) was hired to write the script with Anderson. Well, the good news is, it looks like Paul W.S. Anderson's take on the project probably won't be seeing the light of day. The bad news is, no one else will likely have a crack at it either. Bloody Disgusting [2] reports that the movie has since fallen

A Nail Hammered Into 'Castlevania's' Coffin

Sources close to Bloody-Disgusting have confirmed that Paul W.S. Anderson's Castlevania adaptation has officially turned to dust. The project, originally announced with Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer) attached to direct, had recently went out to new directors only to take a trip into the abyss of "development hell." Simon Belmont, it was nice knowing ya. The pic was to focus on the origins of Dracula and the uprising of the Belmont Clan, a vampire-slaying family who supposedly become humanity's last hope. Ian Jeffers had been penning the screenplay alongside Anderson. We'll keep you posted if any fresh news arises, until then back to the control pad.

Sylvain White Takes Over 'The Losers'

So remember back in 2007 when no one could understand why Warner Bros. had chosen to hire Tim Story (Taxi) to direct a feature film version of Vertigo's The Losers? Well, it looks like WB might have come to the same conclusion as we did because Variety reports that Story has now been replaced by Sylvain White. Personally, I haven't been able to wrap my head around either of WB's choices for the comic book flick. It is nothing against either one of these guys, but keep in mind that White directed Stomp the Yard and I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer .

The Losers was originally a DC title about a group of WWII bad-a**es, but in 2003, Andy Diggle revived the title with a few minor changes for Vertigo. The 'new' Losers still centered on a Special Forces team, but the story was now set in the 1990's
