Syfy and Universal have today announced they have greenlit Blood Drive, a high-octane, over-the-top scripted series in the classic grindhouse movie tradition. Set in a near-apocalyptic future, the 13-episode series centers around La’s last good cop who is forced to join a twisted, gory cross-country death race – with cars powered by blood (Blood Car anyone?) and a dangerous femme fatale partner who sees people as fuel. Sounds a lot like Blood Drive the video game (pictured above) – but apparently this is no relation.
Blood Drive is from executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld: Awakening, The Shield) and David Straiton (Bates Motel, Hemlock Grove), who will also direct. Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller:
This highly stylized roller coaster ride is a throwback to 1970s grindhouse cinema. With its fast-paced thrills and indie feel, Blood Drive will make an exciting and edgy addition to Syfy’s growing slate of original scripted series. »

Despite it looking as though the Underworld franchise would be moving away from Kate Beckinsale’s killer vamp Selene and focusing on a younger generation, Underworld overlord Len Wiseman dropped word last October that she’d be back for more. And so it has come to pass, with news that Beckinsale is officially aboard a fifth film.Previous reports have mentioned Underworld: Next Generation as the new movie’s name, though The Hollywood Reporter’s update on Beckinsale’s status doesn’t mention the title. The Divergent franchise’s Theo James is aboard to reprise his role as the vampire David he first played in 2012’s Underworld: Awakening, with an immortal blood oath his contract committing him to another run-around. Priest/The Last Witch Hunter’s Cory Goodman has been working away on the script, but the main plot is being kept under wraps for now. Given how it’s »
In this day and age, where studios view every film as a potential franchise starter, it shouldn.t surprise me when I hear about an unexpected sequel. Still, every time there.s news about a new Underworld movie my first reaction is, "Really?" Well, Underworld 5, also known as Underworld: Next Generation, is indeed happening, and it will once again feature the true face of the franchise, Kate Beckinsale. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the badass vampire Selene, who has appeared as the protagonist in three of the previous four installments. She sat out 2009.s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. At this point in the franchise, she has a daughter with her lycan/vampire hybrid hubby Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), though at the end of the last film, Underworld: Awakening, he is nowhere to be found, which will probably come into play at »
Kate Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the vampire warrior Selene in Underworld 5. Anna Foerster (Outlander) will direct the film, making her the first female director to helm an installment in the female-led action franchise. Theo James, who appeared in 2012's Underworld: Awakening, is also attached to star. The script comes from Cory Goodman, and while plot details are currently under wraps, THR reports the film will focus on a new, younger generation of vampires and werewolves who are still locked in the seemingly endless war between supernatural races. [caption id="attachment_134370" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Sony[/caption] While "new and younger" often leads to pretty grim results, it's interesting that Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems are choosing to move forward with another sequel in the existing franchise rather than rebooting the whole thing altogether, as was reported back in 2014. Given that Goodman is still scripting the film, Underworld 5 looks to be a soft reboot of sorts. »

Every October, we stab them with knives, killing their regular appearances and bringing them to new life with sharpened teeth, ghoulish gazes, and impossibly wide, sinister smiles. We make pumpkins into little monsters every year, but what if they came to life on their own... and wanted revenge for the years of jack-o'-lantern carvings, discarded guts, and baked seeds? Darin Beckstead's Proof of Concept for his planned feature film, Evil Nature, expertly explores this unnerving "what if?" with ample amounts of holiday humor and creature-centric horror. We've been provided with the fun and frightening Evil Nature Proof of Concept to share with Daily Dead readers, along with an exclusive Q&A with director Darin Beckstead.
Press Release -- "The brainchild of filmmaker Darin Beckstead has been unleashed! This two-minute Proof of Concept was inexpensively lensed during a single evening in Los Angeles and Executive Produced by Gilbert Adler (Constantine, »

A contemplative film pondering the nature of the difference between reality and fiction, one with resonance beyond the true-crime story it’s kinda sorta about. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Michael Winterbottom’s movies
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Let’s be perfectly clear: The Face of an Angel is most definitely not the story of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, or the story of her roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the crime along with her then boyfriend. (And then they were acquitted on appeal.)
Well, it is that story. But it isn’t, either. It’s both and neither at the same time.

Theo James is a not only a pretty handsome fellow, he is also a talented actor that can handle a whole lot of action and more. While his past work in Underworld: Awakening and the Divergent series found the actor in daring situations, he continues to take on different types of characters as well. You can find Mr. James in The Inbetweeners Movie, the hit series Downtown Abbey as well as the series Golden Boy. And of course you can catch him in the latest of The Divergent Series »
