Kitamura's Downrange on Its Way to Thrill in 2018

21 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Kitamura Ryuhei cemented his place in the genre hall of fame with Versus back at the turn of the century. Since then he's found himself in and out of favor with fans as he made the likes of Aragami, Agumi, Godzilla: Final Wars, The Midnight Meat Train (my personal high of that year), and others. Soon he'll be returning to delight his fans with Downrange. Scripted by Joey O'Bryan (Fulltime Killer, Motorway, and more, and a personal friend, too), the film is based on a story by O'Bryan and Kitamura. Per the official statement: "In the film, six college students are carpooling cross-country when one of their tires blows out on a desolate stretch of country road. Getting out to fix the flat, they quickly...

The Grudge Reboot to be Helmed by The Eyes Of My Mother Director Nicolas Pesce

6 July 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Meowing might become a scary sound again, as a reboot of The Grudge, itself a remake of the Japanese film Ju-on: The Grudge, now has a director.

According to Deadline, the latest film in The Grudge franchise is set to be directed and rewritten by Nicolas Pesce, the filmmaker behind 2016's The Eyes of My Mother, a big hit on the festival circuit and a film that our own Heather Wixson called "a hauntingly provocative slice of gothic cinema" in her review.

Pesce is expected to provide additional work to a previous screenplay written by Jeff Buhler, who adapted Clive Barker's The Midnight Meat Train for the screen and also co-wrote the upcoming Jacob's Ladder remake.

A Ghost House Pictures film, The Grudge reboot will be executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise. Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake, and Nathan Kahane.

George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers: TV pilot on the way

11 May 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Jun 26, 2017

A television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novella and 1987 movie Nightflyers is coming to Syfy...

Nightflyers stands as one of George R.R. Martin’s more intriguing pre-Game of Thrones offerings, starting as a 1980 novella, eventually inspiring a schlocky, limited-release 1987 film adaptation.

We heard, about a month ago, that Syfy is developing a Nightflyers series - albeit without Martin's explicit involvement, because he's under contract at HBO.

Today, it sounds like things are pressing ahead: Syfy has ordered a pilot episode. And, according to Deadline, a writers room is being assembled to flesh out the rest of the season. It's sounding pretty likely that this will actually happen, then. 

This, of course, will be the second adaptation of the book...

The story of the George R.R. Martin-conceived supernatural space thriller is set on the eve of Earth’s destruction, depicting the travails of the »

New to Streaming: ‘Kaili Blues,’ ‘Split,’ ‘Tropic Thunder,’ ‘The Void,’ and More

7 April 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Bfg (Steven Spielberg)

CGI loses the day in Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg, a partly motion-captured, eco-minded adaptation of Roald Dahl’s adored children’s book that leans so heavily on green-screen trickery that even Mark Rylance’s kind eyes — squinting out from that computer-generated abyss — can’t save it from mediocrity. The plotline of a friendly, dream-blowing giant who takes an orphaned girl under his wing has »
