New Line Cinema has picked up the upcoming memoir Home Is Burning from Dan Marshall in a competitive bidding situation, with Miles Teller set to star and Jonathan Levine attached to direct. Both the actor and filmmaker will also produce the adaptation for New Line. The book, which is Dan Marshall's first, will be published in October through Flatiron Books.
The plot follows the author as he has to move back home into his parents' basement, after finding out that his mother's cancer has relapsed and his father is diagnosed with Als. At the time, Marshall was a recent college graduate living in Los Angeles, when he returned to his family home and reunited with his four siblings, who The Hollywood Reporter describe as all "colorful characters with life challenges of their own." Together they formed "Team Terminal" to help their parents fight off the terminal afflictions.

Filmmaker Joe Dante is responsible for some of the finest B-movie outings to emerge in the late 70s and early 80s. Pirahna, The Howling and Gremlins now exist as generous reminders of an era where monsters were rendered painstakingly with animatronics and puppetry. More recently, Dante’s devout approach saw him tackle kiddie-centric thriller The Hole, which is in this writer’s opinion vastly underrated. While he’s taken a breather from features to focus on TV (Splatter, Witches Of East End and Hawaii Five-o), the horror helmer returns to his origin genre for Burying The Ex.
In development for some time, the zombie rom-com was partially financed through crowdfunding, and the rest was secured (as Dante himself told The Playlist) by the appeal of its attractive leads. Following its worldwide premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year, word on the film’s distribution fell eerily silent. Apart from »

You’re about see Liam Hemsworth like never before. In the upcoming film Cut Bank, the actor stars as Dwayne McLaren, a former high school football star whose life changes forever when he happens to catch a murder on video tape in Cut Bank, Montana. In perhaps his darkest, most suspenseful film yet, it’s the thrill of watching him take charge that will make you fall in love. Again and again.
Rounding out the cast are Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire), John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, and Oliver Platt. With a roster like this, the performances will likely more than deliver. Until we’re able to see the film, let’s just stare at our favorite Aussie some more.
Bye-bye, Gale Hawthorne. Hemsworth has grown his facial hair and has a smoldering stare like Boom.

There is good news and bad news about Kriv Stenders’ neo-noir film Kill Me Three Times. The good news is that it’s fun to see Simon Pegg enjoying himself as a real scumbag of a hitman. The bad news is that if you’ve seen a handful of crime movies in the last 20 years, you’ve already seen most of what Kill Me Three Times has to offer.
Simon Pegg plays Charlie Wolfe, a contract killer we meet as he chases down and executes some poor sap in the desert. He’s hired to take out Alice (Alice Braga, Predators) for reasons not made clear at first, but when he shows up to do the job he discovers that she’s already been rubbed out by married dentists Nathan (Sullivan Stapleton, 300: Rise of an Empire) and Lucy (Theresa Palmer, Warm Bodies).

Magnet Releasing has dropped a new trailer for its upcoming comedy actioner, Kill Me Three Times. The film bowed last year on the festival circuit and has since garnered favorable reviews. Most of that accompanying praise has been directed at the movie’s leading man, Simon Pegg, whose inherent charm and likeability could transform this into a brilliant lil’ indie caper.
Directed by Kriv Stenders from a script by newcomer James McFarland, Kill Me Three Times focuses on Pegg’s morally-bankrupt assassin, Charlie Wolfe, who quickly agrees to a job promising him a 50 grand payday. He soon hightails it to the Aussie surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, where things get interesting. Not only is the hit on a rather attractive woman, but there’s also several other professionals after the loot. Things proceed to twist and turn from there as various secrets come to light.
