What a time to be alive. Shia Labeouf the performance artist is on the loose again and we couldn't be more excited. By now you've heard about his latest stunt, #allmymovies, right? According to The Guardian, the actor is currently at the Angelika Film Center in New York City, watching all of his movies back to back. That is correct, all of his movies. Shia tweeted the address for the event this morning so that you can sit alongside him and lose yourself in the cinematic work of Shia. Disturbia-ing, right? His films will screen 24 hours a day for the next three days, with small breaks in between each of them. If you can't jet to NYC in »
Undoubtedly one of the funniest genre films of the year arrives in theaters this weekend, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, which was directed by Christopher Landon and stars David Koechner (Anchorman), Tye Sheridan (the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse), Logan Miller (+1), Joey Morgan, and Sarah Dumont (Don Jon). The film follows a group of Scouts as they deal with an impending zombie invasion, with often hilarious results.
At the recent press day, Daily Dead had the chance to speak with Landon—who previously made his mark in the genre world as a writer and director for the Paranormal Activity franchise—about his experiences helming Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, working with Koechner as well as the film’s younger stars, his thoughts on how the landscape of horror comedies has never been stronger than it is this year, and much more.

Can you kill a zombie with Britney Spears music? The Walking Dead would have us believe that zombies are unthinking murder machines that can't be stopped by anything except a sharp blade or bullet to the head. So it's always fun to see a twist to that conceit. We'll be getting a slightly different take on the overcrowded Living Dead genre in this weekend's Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. And the latest clip from the movie teases that this will be a blood-soaked blast.
Ben, Carter and Augie are three way-ward American Scouts who have found themselves teamed up with Denise, a kick-ass strip club waiter who knows her way around shooting an animated corpse in the head. Attempting to save themselves from an onslaught of the living dead, they encounter a creeping ghoul who wants to eat their flesh. Augie attempts to dominate the sub-species with some of his Scouting skills, »
When the apocalypse happens, of course the first place you're going is the local strip club. Two scout friends do just that in the latest red band look at Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. While one of them goes to the Atm for cash, the other finds a spot in the mostly deserted watering hole. Neon lights shine on an empty stage. There are no other patrons left in the building...Or are there?
What starts out as an uneventful night for three Boy Scouts turns into a fight for survival in Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. This blood-soaked clip contained a lot of top shelf nudity, and isn't meant for anyone under the age of 18. Just as the zombie stripper goes to make her deadly move, one of the Scouts makes it rain dollar bills. This sends the undead woman to the stripper pole, where she carries out her usual routine. »
Published by DC imprint Vertigo and launching in 2002, the ongoing series ran for 60 issues through to 2008 and “revolves around Yorick Brown — the last surviving human with a Y chromosome — and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. The series follows escape artist Yorick after the mysterious plague as he sets out to find what might have wiped out the world’s male chromosomes.”
There have been several attempts to bring Y: The Last Man to the big screen, with D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) attached to direct in 2008 and Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (Jericho) in talks in 2012, although both projects failed to materialise.

The 60-issue comic follows young amateur escape artist Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand, the last two men on Earth. Something simultaneously kills every mammal on Earth possessing a Y chromosome - including embryos, fertilized eggs, and even sperm.
Society is plunged into chaos as infrastructures collapse and the surviving women everywhere try to cope with the loss of the men. Yorick goes on a mission to find his girlfriend Beth, who was on vacation in Australia.
Attempts have been made for years to adapt the property as a movie. DJ Caruso ("Disturbia"), Louis Leterrier ("The Incredible Hulk") and Dan Trachtenberg were previously attached as directors while Shia Labeouf and Alicia Keys were linked as stars to earlier versions.
It has taken a while for the TV series plan »

During a promotional interview with io9 for his new film The Last Witch Hunter, Vin Diesel has revealed that director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye, I Am Number Four) has signed on helm the upcoming action threequel xXx 3.
“I’m excited as hell about XXX,” states Diesel. “D.J. Caruso is directing it, which is exciting. The big question now is which will race to production first now that F. Gary Gray is on [Fast & Furious 8]? Will XXX race to production first or will Fast race to production first?
xXx was released in 2002 and starred Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports enthusiast turned Nsa spy. It was followed in 2005 by the Diesel-less sequel xXx: State of the Union, which saw Ice Cube as a new lead.

The highly anticipate movie in the xXx series, xXx3, has finally bagged itself a director in D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye), but it looks like Vin Diesel‘s other hot franchise, The Fast and the Furious, will have its eighth movie go before the cameras before shooting gets underway on another Xander Cage adventure.
Diesel spoke to io9, who revealed the hiring of a new director.
“I’m excited as hell about xXx. D J Caruso is directing it, which is exciting. The big question now is which will race to production first now that F Gary Gray is on [Fast & Furious 8]? Will xXx race to production first or will Fast race to production first?”
We’re guessing Fast 8, Furious 8, or whatever they decide to call it will make it to the start line as »

Disturbia helmer D.J. Caruso is fast becoming Hollywood’s go-to guy for threequels no one asked really asked for in the first place. After signing on to tackle G.I. Joe 3 for Paramount, the director has reportedly boarded the long-in-the-works xXx 3.
Speaking with io9, Diesel seemed bullish about the would-be blockbuster, though he noted that Furious 8 may end up taking off before it now that F. Gary Gray has been selected to replace James Wan in the director’s chair on that far more high-profile project:
“I’m excited as hell about XXX. D.J. Caruso is directing it, which is exciting. The big question now is which will race to production first now that F. Gary Gray is on [Furious 8]? Will XXX race to production first or will Fast race to production first?”
Whenever it ends up happening, the xXx threequel will find Vin Diesel once more slipping into the role of Xander Cage, »

This past week, it was finally confirmed that F. Gary Gray will be directing the hotly anticipated sequel Fast & Furious 8. Now, Vin Diesel has moved onto his next project, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. The actor announced today that D.J. Caruso will be taking the helm.
Vin Diesel has been teasing his return as Xander Cage since as far back as 2008. It will only be the second time he's played the character of Xander Cage in a feature film, with xXx debuting in 2002. The first sequel, XXX: State of the Union, arrived in 2005 with Ice Cube in the lead. And a short film that came with the DVD alluded to Cage being dead.That's certainly not the case, though.
Speaking with io9, Diesel has revealed that "Eagle Eye" and "Disturbia" helmer D.J. Caruso is set to direct "xXx 3" which, at last report, was set to start filming this December in the Philippines. With Gray's hiring though, even Diesel himself isn't sure which will go first, saying:
"Furious 8" is currently targeting an April1 4th 2017 release which means it will have to begin shooting very early in 2016 to meet that date. Talking about returning to the role of Xander Cage, Diesel says:
"xXx is one of those films you »

Over the past few years, we’ve lost count of the number of times there’s been talk that the long-rumoured new instalments of Gremlins and The Goonies could be moving forward, only for the projects to seemingly slip back into development hell.
Well, now we have another update direct from Chris Columbus, writer of the original two movies, who has told Screen Crush that he’s “heavilty developing” both projects with Warner Bros.:
“The stuff that I’m involved with — the Gremlins and Goonies reboots, for instance — they would do that without me. So, I’m staying involved just so I can be protective and actually protect what people love about those movies so it doesn’t go off track.”
- Gary Collinson
Before he began a successful career as a director starting with 1987's "Adventures in Babysitting," Chris Columbus began his career as a screenwriter. Two of his first scripts have since gone on to become bonafide classics - "Gremlins" and "The Goonies".
Both films, now just over thirty years old each, have also been the subject of rumored reboots in recent years, with new takes on both properties in early development. So far though, they still seem to be stuck in that stage and have yet to progress.
Ahead of the release of Columbus' new film "Pixels," the director is out doing press and was asked by Screen Crush how the two reboots are going. He says they are still in active development, but that they're very slow going:
"The stuff that I'm involved with - the Gremlins and Goonies reboots, for instance - they would do that without me. So, »

If you were heartbroken to hear that Joe Dante's seminal holiday horror comedy Gremlins (1984) was on the track to being remade, you can cling to some hope that characters from the original film (perhaps both human and otherwise) will be involved in the new entry to the beloved franchise. In a recent interview, Chris Columbus—who wrote the original Gremlins and will produce the new film—shared details that hint at the Gremlins reboot being more along the lines of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek films and upcoming Star Wars movie in terms of mixing familiar faces with new characters. It sounds like this new Gremlins film could be more of a sequel than a remake.
Collider spoke with Columbus at CinemaCon about the Gremlins reboot, a project Warner Bros. recently hired Carl Ellsworth (Goosebumps movie, Disturbia, Red Eye) to write. Columbus discussed revisiting the idea of a Gremlins »
