A trailer has arrived for Spring, the latest film from directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. I'm very eager to check this one out at Fantastic Fest this month as I greatly enjoyed their previous effort Resolution (now on Netflix Instant).
Lou Taylor Pucci of Evil Dead and Carriers stars. He plays a man who relocates from Southern California to Italy. While there, he meets a young woman – played by Nadia Hilker – with a dark secret. Check out the trailer here, courtesy of Deadline.

Highland Film Group announced today that Emma Roberts (We're the Millers, American Horror Story) and Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, Carriers) will star in the horror/thriller film February, which will be written and directed by Osgood Perkins, the son of legendary actor Anthony Perkins.
In February, beautiful and haunted Joan makes a bloody and determined pilgrimage across a frozen landscape toward a prestigious all girls prep school where Rose and Kat find themselves stranded after their parents mysteriously fail to retrieve them for winter break. As Joan gets closer, terrifying visions begin plaguing Kat while Rose watches in horror as she becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.
"We look forward to bringing Osgood's tantalizing story to life while keeping audiences riveted with suspense."
Highland Film Group's Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier added their own statement. »
It was announced today that Spring would be joining the Toronto International Film Festival's Vanguard programming. I wanted to draw a bit more attention to this title because it's the latest film from the guys who brought us last year's Resolution, a film that made my top of 2013 list: Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Beyond these two talented fellas, Spring also attracted some on-screen talent I dig: Lou Taylor Pucci of Evil Dead and Carriers. He plays a man who relocates from Southern California to Italy. While there, he meets a young woman – played by Nadia Hilker – with a dark secret.

Exclusive: When seasoned agents leave one major percentery for another, the tale is told by how many clients change addresses with them. Back in March, Stuart Manashil made the leap to Wme after spending the past 6 1/2 years at CAA and before that spent six years at UTA. In what marks the third case — Dan Aloni and Warren Zavala were the first two — where agents pried their clients away from CAA, Manashil has strengthened Wme’s writer-director roster quite a bit. Related: Selena Gomez Signs With Wme Here’s who he brought with him: Alex Graves, who helmed the most recent Game Of Thrones episode; Pixar’s Day Of The Dead writer Matt Aldrich; Evil Dead‘s Fede Alvarez & Rodo Sayagues; Carlos helmer Olivier Assayas; Simon Barrett (You’re Next); Henry Bean (Internal Affairs); Simon Brand (Default); Juan Campanella (The Secret In Their Eyes); John Dowdle & Drew Dowdle (Quarantine); Kieran Fitzgerald »

The directing duo behind the underrated Carriers, Alex and David Pastor, return for yet another slice of post-apocalyptic horror with The Last Days, which sees a mysterious epidemic known as The Panic spread across the planet – essentially extreme agoraphobia, this new-found irrational fear of open spaces leads to instant death and soon the world’s population remains trapped inside buildings afraid to move. As Barcelona descends into chaos Marc embarks on a citywide quest to search for his pregnant girlfriend Julia without setting foot outside. Teaming up with his hated boss Enrique who was just about to fire him, this means travelling via sewer, subway line, cellars and basements, avoiding opportunistic feral gangs, armed only with a failing Gps device and lots of ingenuity.
Despite differing wildly in subject matter, The Last Days »

The cast for the feature version of post-apocalyptic novel Z for Zachariah is beginning to firm up with some high-profile actors, including the currently red hot Margot Robbie from The Wolf of Wall Street.
Per THR's Heat Vision Blog, Aussie actress Robbie is in negotiations to replace Amanda Seyfried, originally set to star in the adaptation as Ann Burden, a teen who is seemingly the sole survivor of a nuclear war (she dropped out due to scheduling issues). Should Robbie sign, the character will be aged up a bit.
Already confirmed for the film are Chris Pine (Star Trek, Carriers) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, Children of Men). Craig Zobel is directing, and Nissar Modi wrote the script based on Robert C. O'Brien's thriller, which was published posthumously in 1974. O'Brien's real name was Robert Leslie Conly, and upon his death, the last few chapters of Z for Zachariah »
