Press Release -- "An Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead action-packed horror comedy, Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern).

Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands »

1 April 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Synopsis:

In a massive, mysterious chamber, fifty strangers awaken to find themselves trapped with no memory of how they got there. Organized in an inward-facing circle and unable to move, they quickly learn that every two minutes one of them must die... executed by a strange device in t [Continued ...] »

Red Sea to sell Hk romance, vampire comedy

25 March 2015 | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: La-based sales outfit brings It’s Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong and Bloodsucking Bastards to Filmart.

Roman Kopelevich’s Red Sea Media is to handle all international sales for It’s Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong and is debuting the romantic comedy to buyers this week at Filmart.

Directed and written by Emily Ting, the film stars Jamie Chung (Big Hero 6) and Bryan Greenberg (Friends With Benefits), and was produced by Ting with Sophia Shek.

Chung plays a Chinese American who visits Hong Kong for the first time and meets a Us expat (Greenberg). But as romance blossoms, time is not on their side.

The rights deal was negotiated by Kopelevich for Red Sea Media and Ari Haas of Sedgemoore Pictures on behalf of the filmmakers.

Ting said: “We shot the film in Hong Kong last summer and I couldn’t be happier to be returning ‘home’ a year later with the finished product.”

Saw Writers Take A Stab At Halloween “Recalibration”

10 February 2015 11:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Any Halloween fan will tell you that, as far as Michael Myers goes, one thing is for certain – the guy doesn’t stay dead for long. Dimension Films is actively plotting the fearsome killer’s latest return to the big screen, and in order to get the ball rolling on what one source called a franchise “recalibration,” the studio has hired Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the screenwriting duo behind multiple Saw movies, to pen the script.

Franchise mainstay Malek Akkad, who has been producing Halloween movies since the 2007 reboot but involved since the mid-1990s, is producing alongside Matt Stein. Akkad is the son of original executive producer Moustapha Akkad.

It’s still unclear what role this new Halloween entry will play in deciding the future of the franchise. Dimension obviously understands that some repiloting is in order given how poorly Rob Zombie’s 2007 reboot and 2009 sequel were received by fans, »

Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan to Write New Halloween Movie

9 February 2015 6:04 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In October of 1978, we saw Michael Myers come home. It was the first time he’d stepped on his town’s soil in 15 years, but it certainly wouldn’t be the last. Over the decades, we’ve seen the serial killing prodigal son of Haddonfield cross back into small town limits to create carnage with everything from a butcher knife to a pitchfork, though we haven’t seen his silent rage at work on the big screen since Rob Zombie’s H2 in 2009.

But we’re now one big step closer to seeing Michael come home again, as the folks at Dimension Films have hired a pair of writers to pen the long-gestating next entry in the Halloween franchise, and many horror hounds are very familiar with the duo tasked with bringing back The Shape.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been hired to write »

Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, the scripters behind Saw IV-VII, the Feast series and The Collector and The Collection, will pen a new Halloween, finally following Rob Zombie’s films.

New 'Halloween' Movie Gets 'Saw' Sequel Writers

9 February 2015 3:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dimension Films is going back to Haddonfield, Illinois for a new Halloween project, hiring writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who wrote the last four Saw movies, to craft the screenplay. Heat Vision Blog's sources say the project is not a reboot, remake or a re-imagining, with one source calling the project a "re-calibration." No director is attached at this time, and no details were given for this new story, which will likely still follow the maniacal serial killer Michael Myers.

We reported back in August that The Weinstein Company/Dimension Films are calling the project Halloween: The Next Chapter. The story would follow the same continuity from Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween II reboots, although Rob Zombie himself was not coming back to direct. Those details have yet to be confirmed, but the earlier report also indicated that the studio was throwing out the previous version of the »

‘Office Space’ meets ‘True Blood’ in first trailer for ‘Bloodsucking Bastards’

14 January 2015 12:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Pedro Pascal

What happens when one of the stars from Cabin in the Woods is an employee for a Game of Thrones star? Well, I guess bloodshed can be assumed.

The first trailer for Bloodsucking Bastards premiered on Wednesday. The film stars Fran Kranz as a working stiff who gets passed over for a big promotion because the company hired the flashy, handsome big talker played by Game of ThronesPedro Pascal. The movie also stars Joel Murray (Mad Men), Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice) Joey Kern (Super Troopers) and Emma Fitzpatrick (The Collection).

Directed by Brian James O’Connell, the premise seems hyper absurd and looks destined for cult fame much like Franz’s other major starring role, Cabin in the Woods. It also includes what looks like a few crazy performances by Pascal and the rest of the cast so it could be a fun genre ride when it »
