New 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' on its Way from 'The Conjuring 2' Writer

20 July 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

David Leslie Johnson, whose credits include The Conjuring 2, Orphan and Wrath of the Titans, as well as the upcoming The Conjuring 3 and Dungeons and Dragons, has been tapped to write a new version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, according to Deadline. John Davis (The Predator) will produce. Jack Finney wrote the novel that started it all, titled The Body Snatchers. First published in 1954, it envisioned the town of Mill Valley, California under invasion by seeds from space that have drifted to Earth. The seeds bloom into pods; once in proximity to sleeping humans, the pods grow into exact duplicates of the humans, only without emotions or independent thoughts. The humans then die. It wasn't the first science fiction novel to tackle the idea of plants somehow becoming a...

A Fifth Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Movie Is Headed Our Way

20 July 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers is undoubtedly one of the most iconic stories in science fiction, which is perhaps why it’s been resurrected in cinema on a semi-regular basis. Since the first version of the tale arrived in theatres in 1956, we’ve seen a further three takes on that same narrative – some attempting to apply the social concerns of the time to the themes explored in the story. Now, we have a fifth heading our way, and this one comes from Warner Bros.

The source material is the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers, by Jack Finney – which began life as a serial published in Colliers Magazine in 1954. For those unfamiliar, the story sees alien seeds drift to Earth through space, and grow emotionally void clones of unsuspecting town residents while they sleep. The residents are then turned to dust, and the clones replace them in their community. The clones do not reproduce, »

The Conjuring 3 confirmed, new writer hired

Simon Brew Jun 27, 2017

Warner Bros confirms The Conjuring 3 - but it might just need a new director this time...

Not a huge surprise this, but Warner Bros – through its New Line Cinema arm – has ordered another film in The Conjuring series. This one is going by the title of The Conjuring 3 for the time being. Expect that to change by the time the movie is released.

The script this time is going to be penned by Davie Leslie Johnson, who penned Orphan and Wrath Of The Titans, and has recently been working on Aquaman. James Wan and Peter Safran are set to produce.

There is going to be a slight change behind the camera this time, though. James Wan, who has directed the two films in the series to date, is not likely to helm this one. He’s currently shooting Aquaman for Warner Bros, and that’s going to »

26 June 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The “Conjuring” universe continues to expand.

New Line is moving forward on its third iteration of the “Conjuring” franchise with “The Conjuring 3[/link].” David Leslie Johnson is on board to script. James Wan will serve as producer through his Atomic Monster production company with Peter Safran.

The logline for “The Conjuring 3” is under wraps. As with the first two “Conjuring” films, which starred Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as paranormal researchers Lorraine and Ed Warren, the story will be taken from the Warrens’ case files.

Johnson wrote “The Conjuring 2,” which went on to gross $320 million worldwide. The news comes two weeks after New Line launched development on “The Crooked Man,” based on the malevolent character in “The Conjuring 2” in the the fourth film spinoff from Wan’s 2013 hit “The Conjuring.” The others are “Annabelle,” “Annabelle: Creation” and “The Nun.”

The two “Conjuring” films and 2014’s “Annabelle” have combined to gross $897 million in box office worldwide. “Annabelle: Creation »

Spain Rebates Lure Productions From Abroad

19 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Thanks to the foreign shoot tax credits, especially on the TV side, Spain is a big hot spot now,” says producer Adrian Guerra. That seems almost an understatement. Luring big shoots is a big growth industry in Spain. But every region is its own story. Beyond Madrid, here are some of Spain’s key filming locales:

Canary Islands

With one of the most attractive tax systems in Europe, the Canary Islands have become a top shooting destination. Per industry sources, foreign shoots have spent some €200 million ($218 million) in Spain since 2015. Of them, the largest part has gone to the Canaries.

Last year, 14 feature films rolled there, including Robert Zemeckis’ “Allied,” Rodrigo Cortés production “Down a Dark Hall,” and Sony Pictures-Atresmedia’s “Oro.” Among TV dramas: Netflix’s “Black Mirror” plus BBC’s “Doctor Who” and “Silent Witness.”

Exclusive Interview: Sam Worthington Talks The Shack, Avatar 2 And Hacksaw Ridge

1 March 2017 7:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since Wrath of the Titans in 2012, Sam Worthington has successfully made the transition from leading man in studio blockbusters to dependable supporting actor in independent films. Following his last appearance as Perseus, the actor has peppered his resume with excellent turns in efforts like The Keeping Room, Everest and Hacksaw Ridge. Now, he’s back in theaters to play lead Mack Phillips in the upcoming film adaptation of the bestselling novel, The Shack.

Mack’s life is destroyed when his youngest daughter is abducted during a camping trip, with nothing but her clothes recovered from a secluded shack. After receiving an invitation possibly from God, he returns to the shack where he embarks on the spiritual journey of a lifetime.

A few weeks back in New York City, we had the chance to sit down with Worthington for an exclusive interview. The actor dished on his new film, how he selects his roles, »

The ‘Van Helsing’ Reboot Tracks Down ‘Wrath of the Titans’ Writer

22 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I’ve become something of a broken record when it comes to Universal’s upcoming “shared monsters universe,” where the likes of Frankenstein and Dracula and the Wolf Man will brush shoulders across a series of movies. I love the original Universal monster movies too much to not spend at least 30 seconds of every day worrying […]

Universal Monsters shared-universe movie Van Helsing will be written by Wrath Of The Titans scribe Dan Mazeau

Universal Studios’ ambitious shared-universe films featuring classic movie monsters manifests this summer with another reboot of The Mummy. That's set to star Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. Now, though, we learn of the planned remake of Van Helsing, that has landed a new writer.

According to The Tracking Board, the script for Universal Monsters entry Van Helsing is now in the hands of writer Dan Mazeau. Mazeau, whose only major credited screenplay was the 2012 Greek myth series sequel Wrath Of The Titans, is in the process of rewriting the Van Helsing script after it was originally drafted by The Mummy writer Jon Spaihts (Passengers) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival).

Mazeau reportedly took on the Van Helsing script duty somewhere around last September after being part of the Universal writer’s room, »

Van Helsing Reboot Gets Wrath of the Titans Writer

21 February 2017 4:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has brought on Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) to rewrite the script for the studio's Van Helsing reboot. It is part of Universal Studios' monster universe, which will feature a bunch of classic creatures in modern day. While his involvement hasn't been reported until now, Dan Mazeau has been with this project since September. He was also part of the original writers room that came together to flesh out this universe, which included Noah Hawley (Legion), Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black).

The Tracking Board broke the news of this writer coming aboard, with Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (The Mummy, Passengers) previously working on this project together through the writers room. Just yesterday, Eric Heisserer revealed that he tried to make the movie as scary as possible, although he qualified that by stating, "I don't know what it's going to look »

Screenwriter Dan Mazeau To Pump Fresh Blood Into Universal’s Van Helsing Reboot

21 February 2017 2:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Consider it a rumor no more – Universal has officially drafted in Wrath of the Titans screenwriter Dan Mazeau to pen a new (final?) treatment for its upcoming Van Helsing movie.

First reported by The Tracking Board, Mazeau is now expected to pump fresh blood into the fantastical reboot under the watchful eye of producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. Together, they’re widely considered to be the creative focal point of the studio’s shared universe, which will introduce moviegoers to a terrifying realm of gods and monsters when The Mummy looms into theaters this summer. Kurtzman is behind the lens for that one.

Van Helsing, meanwhile, has been gestating in the early stages of pre-production for months, and Ttb notes that Dan Mazeau was first linked with the action-horror property back in September. Since then, Oscar nominee Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) have each had a crack at the script, »

The Great Wall review

16 February 2017 9:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matt Damon stars in the hugely expensive The Great Wall, an American and Chinese co-production that fails to really impress.

While it's arguably insensitive to release a movie about a big wall given the current news cycle, this hasn't deterred Universal. The Great Wall, whose title and very being invites accusations of hubris, is as big, daft, paper-thin and transparently China-chasing as you expected it to be, but on the plus side it might make you feel like 3D’s finally had its day.

It takes a certain type of Western arrogance to make a play for the Chinese market through a fantasy reimagining of its greatest landmark’s history, but hey, this is Hollywood, baby. Consider the implications of a Chinese blockbuster pitched aggressively at American theatres, telling how Mount Rushmore was attacked by aliens but only survived because Michelle Yeoh defended it. But then: this is a Us-Chinese co-production, »
