Way back in 2011, news arrived that "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Final Destination" producer John Rickard set up an adaptation of quarter-eating arcade game "Rampage" at New Line. And that was the last anybody heard about it, because really, who is asking for a "Rampage" movie? Well, apparently Hollywood is, because they've just got a big star attached. Dwayne Johnson is now flexing his muscles for the project, with the live-action movie looking to shoot next summer. Ryan Engle ("Non-Stop") is writing the script, and while it's not certain how the game will be turned into a narrative, you may have forgotten that in the video game, the gorilla, lizard, and werewolf are actually the result of an experiment gone wrong on three humans, George, Lizzie, and Ralph.

At MoreHorror.com, we see a lot of horror films seeking funding through Kickstarter. Here’s one that caught our eye. We think this is a film that actually matters to the horror community.

Hiroshi has had a stellar career in makeup and special effects, and is known especially for sculpture, which is the art that “creates the creature”. He’s done three films with Spielberg, worked on multiple films with Guillermo del Toro, and his 39 film credits also include Wolverine, Pirates of the Caribbean, Alien v Predator Requiem, Cabin in the Woods, and The Hunger Games. His TV credits include being part of an Emmy winning team for The X-Files. He is also a true fan of horror and suspense, and has written and directed several acclaimed horror shorts.

Denis Villeneuve is on fire after 2010's Incendies followed by Prisoners and Enemy. Now he has Sicario coming later this year with an already impressive cast that includes the likes of Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin, and to go with that he's attached to direct the Untitled Blade Runner Project, but it appears before he heads to the world of Blade Runner he has a project lined up for mid-June with Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams set to star. The film is Story of Your Life, an adaptation of the short story by Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author Ted Chiang. The story is set in motion when alien crafts land around the world, and an expert linguist (Adams) is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. amz asin="1931520720" size="small"As she learns to communicate with the aliens, she begins experiencing vivid »

Beginning his acting career very young, Fear Clinic‘s Thomas Dekker has worked with everyone from John Carpenter to Jerry Seinfeld and most people in between. Always jumping into each role and doing a hell of a job with them, Dekker’s always good, even if certain films might not have been (I’m not the biggest fan of the A Nightmare On Elm Street remake, but still liked what Dekker brought to the table). When Dekker was cast as a young John Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he met and began a creatively rich working relationship with FX maestro Rob Hall, who went on to cast Dekker in both Laid To Rest films, as well as Fear Clinic. Playing Blake, a mysterious (and somewhat catatonic) survivor of a shooting which comes to the film’s Fear Clinic to be cured of his fears, Dekker does an excellent »
