We told you back in April that Bryan Fuller‘s pilot for Syfy, High Moon, had gone into production. Four months later they’re announcing lead casting, so I’m trying to not be concerned about the time that’s elapsed, and instead be pleased about this forward momentum.
New York – August 13, 2013 – Syfy has inked actors Chris Diamantopoulos and Jake Sandvig for starring roles in High Moon, a 90-minute pilot, co-produced by Universal Cable Productions and Lark Productions set to commence shooting August 26 in Vancouver BC. The project is based on the novel “The Lotus Caves” by John Christopher.

A film that I have been hearing about for the past year is a Chilean exploitation film called Hidden in the Woods. It made such an impact at its North American Premiere at Fantasia last year that Michael Biehn and his daughter felt that they needed to remake the film for American audiences. Artsploitation Films are releasing Hidden in the Woods as their second horror release this year. We have included the trailer and the full press release below as well as the pre-order link from Amazon.

That sound you hear? That’s me, clomping up the stairs to the angry dome. I’ve been spending a lot of time up there in recent weeks. My head is slowly imploding from the sheer WTFness of everything I am hearing. I’m not certain how much more of this I can take.
Let me try to put this concisely: there is a movie about Troll dolls. It is called Trolls. It is not, unfortunately, a sequel to Troll 2. It is being produced by DreamWorks Animation. And it has a writer and director.
The director? Mike Mitchell, who directed Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo, Shrek Forever After and (shudder) Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. His single non-cringe-worthy credit? Sky High, which did not suck. So he’s the guy in charge of Trolls.
The writer? Here we fare a little better. Erica Rivinoja has signed on to write the screenplay. »

.The movie about Troll dolls has been shelved and will be forgotten about by everyone for all of eternity.. That.s what I would be saying if the world were not a place where Hell was allowed to exist. But all it takes is a quick glance at newspapers or the local news to see the naivety behind that. And so, the film has taken its biggest leap forward in gaining creative guidance, which is my way of saying that the film has a director and a screenwriter. Hoora.(cough cough). DreamWorks Animation (via Coming Soon) has announced Mike Mitchell signed on as director for Trolls, while Emmy Award-winner Erica Rivinoja will write the screenplay. Not only is this an instance where the writer completely outshines the director, but if it wouldn.t be for the lame duck spoof flick Extreme Movie, even her worst work is of a relative »
