Exclusive: As Charles Manson gears up for his behind-bars nuptials to a young follower named Star, a February shoot has been set for long-gestating indie drama Manson Girls. Susanna Lo is directing the film about the female devotees who joined Manson’s flock in the 1960s and helped carry out brutal killings meant to start an apocalyptic race war. Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects) will portray Manson in the film, which TriCoast Worldwide boarded this month at Afm.
Rather than probe the twisted brain of Manson himself, Manson Girls will chronicle how eight young women in his brood came from diverse and even privileged backgrounds to become the most notorious female serial killers of the decade’s Love Generation. The pic will follow the girls’ pre-Manson teen years through their indoctrination into the Family and up to the bloody summer of 1969 when their violent “Helter Skelter” campaign that »

Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.
The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.
But don’t label them as horror queens.
“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way, »

Just a couple months ago, we learned that a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel was on the way called Leatherface. The story was said to take place before the original 1974 classic horror film, following the teenage years of the chainsaw-wielding killer in the 70s with a script from rising writer Seth M. Sherwood. Now Bloody Disgusting has word that Inside, Livid and Among the Living directing duo Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury have been tapped to direct the prequel finding Leatherface as a teenager in a mental institution with other disturbed young people. So how does this lead to the inception of the killer? Well, a group of kids break out of the institution and end up getting into trouble in the outside world, though no specifics are mentioned. It's the events that happen outside of the institution that will lead to the creation of Leatherface's identity. Carl Mazzocone (Texas Chainsaw 3D »

After horrifying and enthralling us in equal measure with their debut feature Inside, French filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury are now set to bring their unique sensibilities to a more mainstream project – Leatherface, a prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 slasher classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that will chart the origins of the titular killer.
Millenium Films has struggled to turn the Texas Chainsaw property into a bankable franchise, and the studio’s seventh attempt, 2013’s Texas Chainsaw 3D, didn’t seem to know whether or not it wanted to be a gruesome, full-blooded horror pic or a more tongue-in-cheek entry. As a result, it succeeded at being neither. With this prequel, however, Millenium has a chance to hit the reset button and launch a new franchise around everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding psycho.
Bustillo and Maury, who also helmed Livide and the upcoming Among the Living, have strong ties »

In August, it was announced that the eighth and latest addition to the seemingly endless string of Texas Chainsaw Massacre entries was shuttling back to prequel territory, thanks to a script from Seth M. Sherwood. Now we know who will probably be directing the film that is currently called Leatherface: Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.According to Bloody Disgusting’s sources, Sherwood remains in charge of the screenplay, which is still largely under wraps save that it will be an origin story exploring Leatherface’s early years in the 1970s. Will we learn he loved disco? That his favourite TV series was Happy Days? Doubtful, but you never know…Maury and Bustillo have form with horror, having previously made slasher pic Inside and a segment for The ABCs Of Death 2. The pressure will be on them to deliver the gory goods for a franchise that has been decidedly »

A few months ago the news hit that the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film would be called Leatherface and would be a prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic Texas Chain Saw Massacre (I will always remind people that some films in the franchise combine the words "chain" and "saw) and a prequel to last year’s Texas Chainsaw 3D. And now the film has found its directors in Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the French duo best known for helming Inside and Livid. To me this is ultimately good news because it at least sounds like they're aiming for something new. Stylistically this will most certainly not be a retread of Texas Chainsaw 3D, which had a great opening weekend at the box office before dropping off somewhat drastically. It feels like producers Carl Mazzocone and executive producers Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are cognizant of the issues that sank »

This year’s Blood List has named the 13 best genre scripts around town, and in its sixth year the annual screenplay contest is expanding its scope to include hot books, TV pilots, and young scribes ripe for signing. Taking top honors in 2014 is sci-fi thriller Bird Box from The Thing and Final Destination 5 scribe Eric Heisserer, an apocalyptic tale of a woman trying to lead her children to safety – all three blindfolded – after monsters descend on earth that turn people insane on sight. Universal set Heisserer to adapt the manuscript from Josh Malerman in 2013 for Mama helmer Andy Muschietti. Previous Blood List alumni include Black Swan, Stoker, Warm Bodies, and the upcoming Blumhouse thriller The Boy Next Door.
Like the Black List naming the top unproduced screenplays circulating around Hollywood, the genre-focused Blood List taps exec votes to determine each year’s best unmade horror, sci-fi, and thriller scripts. »

Halloween is scary in more ways than one for the Hollywood studios, who get skittish about losing audiences to trick-or-treats and parties. Even though it's a week away, the studios took a hiatus from opening any star-driven, high-end films. Per usual, a pre-Halloween horror flick-- "Ouija" from Universal--topped the weekend, while "John Wick," a new film from one-time powerhouse action star Keanu Reeves, added some wattage. Still, the Top Ten continued to improve over last year, generating $96 million compared to $93 in 2013. At this juncture the year to date is down 3.7%, nearly half the highest level of drop earlier in the year. While the weekend before Halloween is often host to a new horror film, "Ouija" is nonetheless a rarity. In recent years, we've seen more horror franchises ("Paranormal Activity," "Saw," "Scary Movie") or remakes ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre"), often opening with weekends of $30 »
