Syfy Goes to The Asylum for Zombie Series Z Nation

8 April 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Prepare yourselves people. The Asylum is coming to TV on a regular basis. Oh yes, the guys that have brought us cheap rip offs of everything from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies) to Snakes on a Plane (Snakes on a Train) and the ridiculous Sharknado, have signed a deal with Syfy to produce 13 episodes of a action-horror zombie series titled Z Nation.

True, once in a while The Asylum manages to eek out something which is curiously entertaining (I didn't watch all of Sharknado but I laughed at quite a bit of what I saw) but for the most part, the quality of their work is sub-par and only mildly entertaining. I'm not sure on which end of the scale (gloriously bad or absolutely terrible) Z Nation will be but [Continued ...] »

News Bites: 'Goonies' Sequel, 'Gremlins' Remake, and 'Wreck-It Ralph 2' All Moving Forward

7 April 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

The Goonies: Back in 2011, we asked director Richard Donner about possible sequels to any of his movies, and he said, "Maybe there is a possibility for The Goonies. We didn't try very hard to do one—we couldn't do the screenplay, and hopefully that means it lays where it lays." At the time, he was trying to mount a musical version of the movie. This weekend, however, he stated, "We're making a sequel" and "hopefully" bringing back the original cast, which include Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Corey Feldman. No other details are available. [TMZ]   Gremlins: We've heard talk about a reboot of Joe Dante's Gremlins for a long time, most recently last year, when Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) was...

Pierce Brosnan heads the cast as King Louis Xiv, who is determined to protect the future of France by reigning for all eternity.

House Of Flying Daggers Director Zhang Yimou to Replace Ed Zwick on Great Wall

18 March 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Legendary Pictures is putting The Great Wall back together.  The project initially came very close to production with Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai) directing and Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) in the lead roles, but scheduling issues and creative differences brought the film to a halt.  The central conceit—which was hatched by Legendary CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery behind why The Great Wall was constructed in China.  In Zwick’s iteration, supernatural forces played a role as the wall was built not to keep anyone in, but to keep terrifying creatures out. Though it was over a year ago that Zwick dropped out, Legendary is going to try to get The Great Wall moving again with Hero director Zhang Yimou.  Hit the jump for more. Per Heat Vision, Chinese director Zhang Yimou is in talks to take »

Fox's Dr. Doom Down to 4, Pan Finds Smee, Tiger Lily & Controversy, Something Wicked Comes Again, Joss Whedon Does Cap, Sienna Miller Snipes

15 March 2014 12:42 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Ff Comic book movie fans still have their Underoos in a bunch over the casting of the title superheroes in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot — Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch and Jamie Bell as the Thing — but at least they can rest easy knowing that a female actress won't be cast as Dr. Doom, as was rumored a few weeks ago. According to TheWrap, four male actors (with accents!) are on the short list to play the evil ruler of the fictional Eastern European nation of Latveria: Sam Riley (Maleficent), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor) and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd). The Fantastic Four reboot is slated for a June 19, 2015, release.

‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ to Theaters Again With a Remake From Disney and Seth Grahame-Smith

13 March 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Like it or not,  Robocop 2014 happened and was an arguable success while it half-humanly, half-robotically stormed through the box office delivering justice. And with that justice comes another price: every ’80s movie and its sequel is continuing to get the reboot treatment while we all just wait around and see what sticks. Up next in the time machine is the 1983 Disney classic Something Wicked This Way Comes. The studio is redoing its own material by taking the Ray Bradbury story and giving it to writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), who will make his feature directorial debut with the project. For those who said “I’m okay” after Fahrenheit 451 and haven’t familiarized themselves with other Bradbury novels, this one follows Mr. Dark, the evil owner of a traveling carnival (is there any other kind?). Dark gets his kicks by bartering with the residents of each town his carnival visits, their »

Seth Grahame-Smith to Adapt Something Wicked This Way Comes

13 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

sharksden

Ray Bradbury's classic 1962 novel Something Wicked This Way Comes is set to be adapted into a feature film by Walt Disney Pictures. They've hired Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows scribe Seth Grahame-Smith to script the film. The guy can write fun novels, but so far his movie scripts haven't been that impressive.

The book was previously adapted into a film back in 1983. It's been so long since I've seen it that I honestly don't remember if it was good or not. The story follows a character named Mr. Dark, the evil proprietor of a traveling carnival who preys on the residents of a small town by bartering possession of their souls for the dreams each one has. Smith had this to say in a statement:

“I have been so crazy about this book, and it was such a formative title in my life that I actually »

Disney Gets Creepy with Something Wicked This Way Comes

13 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Attention book lovers! A classic tale is being revived for the big screen, and with Disney backing the adventure, we know this is going to be a sure-fire hit!

"Something Wicked This Way Comes" is a Ray Bradbury book about a traveling carnival run by an evil man. He goes from small town to small town, gathering souls in return for giving the townsfolk what they dream of most.

Disney has picked Seth Grahame-Smith to make his directorial debut for Something Wicked This Way Comes, but don't worry, Seth has more than enough experience with the dark and sinister. He's worked on the sets of movies like Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, so there's plenty of experience supporting this choice!

This isn't the first time Something Wicked This Way Comes has made the leap to the big screen, and Seth plans to include many of the elements that »

Need for Speed review: might as well be based on a breakfast cereal

13 March 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Thinks it’s poetical and epic, and the more dramatic it thinks it’s being, the more hilariously histrionic it all is. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s a Fast & Furious ripoff! No, wait, it’s based on a popular videogame!

Which one makes Need for Speed sound more junky and more calculated to trick audiences into parting with their hard-earned cash? Cuz: that one.

And if throwing away 2D dollars on this doesn’t thrill you enough, know that the 3D version was created in postproduction– which never, never looks good — as an extra bonus cash grab. If you want to feel like you’re driving a car in 3D, you could just go drive a car.

There’s no story and no characters in the Electronic Arts series of games this »

Seth Grahame-Smith to Direct 'Something Wicked This Way Comes'

13 March 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since it doesn't seem like Seth Grahame-Smith will ever see his novel remix Pride & Preudice & Zombies hit the big screens, the author has found work with other big screen projects. While his Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter wasn't exactly a treat, Grahame-Smith has worked on the script for the gestating reboot of Fantastic Four, is collaborating with Tim Burton on a sequel to Beetlejuice, and there have been rumors that he's involved with a reboot of Gremlins. Now Deadline reports the writer is slated to make his directorial debut with a new adaptation of Ray Bradbury's novel Something Wicked This Way Comes at Disney. For those who aren't familiar with Bradbury's book, here's the official synopsis: The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. The shrill siren song of a calliope beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, »

'80s Films 'Explorers' & 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' Going Down The Remake Road

13 March 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Despite being a bit of a flop in North America, the moderate worldwide success of this year’s “RoboCop” remake has apparently proven to Hollywood that redos of ‘80s movies are profitable. They may not be breaking the bank, but they’re definitely putting more cash into these studios’ wallets. So, why not make more of them, right? First up, screenwriter/novelist Seth Grahame-Smith (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) has finally found a project to make his directorial debut with. He’s teaming up with Disney to remake the 1983 film “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” which is based on the Ray Bradbury novel of the same name. The novel tells the story of an evil proprietor of a traveling carnival who takes advantage of small town residents by taking possession of their souls in exchange for the dreams each person has. Grahame-Smith wants to take the novel and make it relevant for a whole new generation. »

Seth Grahame-Smith Will Direct Something Wicked This Way Comes

13 March 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the long line of adaptations and remakes that will arrive in cinemas from now until the end of time, there are very few that actually seem necessary. One exception might be Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, which Disney made in 1983 and now plans to remake, with writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) penning a treatment for the adaptation and making his directorial debut on the film.

Something Wicked This Way Comes is the story of two young boys whose small town is invaded by a traveling carnival, lead by the malevolent Mr. Dark. The carnival offers wish fulfillment of a sort – a chance for the adults of the town to relive lost childhoods, and for the children to become the adults they dream of. But it all comes at a horrifying price, as the two boys discover. The book is nothing short of terrifying, »

Disney Remaking Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes

12 March 2014 9:53 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Having released a film version of Ray Bradbury's dark fantasy novel Something Wicked This Way Comes in 1983, Disney has now hired Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith to direct a remake, just as soon as he finishes that Beetlejuice sequel he's making with Tim Burton. First Cary Fukunaga plans to make a new version of Stephen King's It, and now this. Why not remake every movie that freaked us out as children? At this point, it's not like we were going to make clowns fun and wholesome again anyway. »

Disney Remakes "Something Wicked"

12 March 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Dark Shadows" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" scribe Seth Grahame-Smith is set to make his feature directorial debut on a new film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's thriller novel "Something Wicked This Way Comes" for Disney Pictures.

The story follows Mr. Dark, the proprietor of a traveling carnival who preys on a small town by making deals for the townsfolk's souls in exchange for the dreams that each one desires.

Grahame-Smith is set to write a treatment, the studio will then hire a writer to work on the script while Grahame-Smith continues his wok on a "Beetlejuice 2" script. David Katzenberg will produce.

Disney previously adapted the property back in 1983 which Bradbury himself adapted, but later expressed disappointment that much was lost in translation.

Grahame-Smith says he plans to ignore the film and return to the book, including some of the classic scenes missing from the previous film.
