Sinister 2 Will Haunt Theaters on August 21st, 2015

6 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sinister 2 is just over a year away.  Focus Features announced today that the horror sequel will land in wide release on August 21st, 2015.  While original director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil)  isn’t returning behind the camera, he did team with C. Robert Cargill (who also worked on the original film) to pen the script and will of course produce the movie alongside Jason Blum.  If you saw Sinister you can probably guess why there aren’t any announcements about Ethan Hawke coming back. I really liked the first film’s use of imagery and I think the general mood of the piece was its most successful element.  So I’m glad that they’re entrusting the reins on this on to Ciaran Foy, who directed the excellent Citadel (seriously, seek that one out if you haven’t seen it already).  Hit the »

If you see him, it’s probably too late. Referred to as Mr. Boogie, or Bughuul, the pagan deity in 2012′s Sinister has a history of haunting and destroying families, as well as consuming children’s souls, making him a truly twisted version of the boogeyman. It was recently announced that Ciaran Foy (Citadel) would direct Sinister 2 and that the film would begin shooting in August, and now Focus Features has slated the sequel for a summer 2015 release.

Deadline reports that Sinister 2 will hit theaters on August 21st, 2015. Scott Derrickson, the director of the 2012 original that starred Ethan Hawke, is writing the screenplay with C.

Sinister 2 To Terrorize Filmgoers Next Summer

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This summer has been a very disappointing season for horror buffs. Deliver Us From Evil was a cheaply written disappointment, The Purge: Anarchy transitioned the franchise from chills to thrills and Jessabelle has been bumped to November. In fact, unless August’s As Above, So Below turns out to be a scary good time (and based on that trailer, I can safely say it won’t), I’ll have to conclude that the only true horror movie to hit theaters this summer was Blended. Luckily, next summer seems a little more promising (not hard, I know). Insidious: Chapter 3 is landing in May, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children should be creepy fun in July, and now we’ve learned that Sinister 2 will be coming in August.

The sequel will go up against Warner Bros.’ romance Me Before You on August 21st next year. Ciaran Foy (Citadel) will »

‘Deus Ex’ Video Game Movie Recruits ‘Predators’ Writer

17 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s not a given that video game film adaptations will, in fact, be the next big thing in Hollywood, but it won’t be for lack of trying on the part of studios. One such project in development is Deus Ex, a big screen take on the cyberpunk series that Sinister writer/director Scott Derrickson and co-writer C. Robert Cargill were recruited to work on a couple years back. However, Derrickson has left the project to go direct Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange instead, and the Deus Ex movie is getting a new script.

Derrickson and Cargill’s Deus Ex movie, judging by how they’ve described it in the past, wouldn’t have been based on any specific storyline from the video game; rather, the ...

Kevin Feige talks 'Doctor Strange' and Scott Derrickson being a good fit

17 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) The future of the Marvel Studios films remains uncertain, but one thing seems more and more likely — that "Doctor Strange" is on the way. The Sorcerer Supreme will make his big-screen debut at some point, as directed by Scott Derrickson of "Sinister" fame. Marvel hasn’t officially announced Derrickson’s involvement, but in an interview with Empire, studio President Kevin Feige all but confirmed the hire, and even explained what we can expect from the filmmaker’s vision. "I would say you can certainly look at the past work of the filmmakers we hire as a bit of an indication for the tone of the movie, but not necessary everything," Feige said. "The Russos, who are well known for their sitcoms, there is nothing sitcom about 'The Winter Soldier!' "No, I wouldn’t say just because he has only done horror movies means that 'Doctor Strange' »

Gotham showrunner talks Harvey Dent and Hugo Strange

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller about the inclusion of Poison Ivy – sorry, Ivy Pepper – and The Joker in the upcoming Batman prequel series, and now he’s been talking about utilising another two members of The Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery in Harvey Dent and Professor Hugo Strange.

“We’re playing Harvey Dent slightly older,” Heller tells IGN with regards to the future Two-Face. “He’s more Gordon’s age in this telling. One of the things to avoid in order not to tell a high school story — which would be great, but it”s a different show on a different network at a different time that I would not be a part of. But he will go back to school and villains will be part of that world.”

And as for Hugo Strange, it seems his story will be linked with that of Arkham Asylum, »

'Predators' Writer Boards Video Game Adaptation 'Deux Ex'

22 July 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

CBS Films has tapped Predators screenwriter Michael Finch to write the screenplay for its video game adaptation Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Back in November 2012, Scott Derrickson came aboard to direct and co-write the script with his Sinister writing partner C. Robert Cargill. Scott Derrickson is no longer attached to direct after signing on to make Marvel's Doctor Strange last month.

The project will be based on the Deus Ex: Human Revolution video game of the same name, which debuted in 2011, telling the origin story of Adam Jensen, a former Swat security specialist who undergoes mechanical augmentation to uncover a vast conspiracy. The Deus Ex franchise was launched in 2000.

Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are producing for CBS Films, with John Powers Middleton serving as executive producer.

Michael Finch's other writing credits also include upcoming projects such as American Assassin, The November Man, Hitman: Agent 47 and Masters of the Universe. »

Just in time for the dreaded by journalists event of the year, the San Diego Comic-Con, we have a brand new one-sheet for Air, which is coming to us from producer Robert Kirkman and stars Norman Reedus of Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" TV series.

Air (formerly Wake Cycle) co-stars Reedus and Djimon Hounsou, who portray workers tasked with maintaining one of the underground bunkers set up to preserve the human race after the Earth's atmosphere has been rendered toxic.

Sandrine Holt ("House of Cards," "The Returned," Terminator: Genesis) also appears in the film, which is slated for a spring 2015 release.

"Predators" Scribe Hops Onto "Deus Ex" Film

22 July 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Predators" and upcoming "Hitman: Agent 47" writer Michael Finch has been hired to work on the script for the film adaptation of acclaimed video game series "Deus Ex" at CBS Films.

Set in the near future where human augmentation has triggered a technological renaissance, the story follows a security specialist named Adam Jensen who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.

Though launched in 2000, the franchise found new life and fans with 2011's "Deus Ex: Human Revolution". That game was not only a big earner but nabbed over 100 industry awards. As a result it will serve as the primary template for the film which Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce.

Finch takes over from "Sinister" scribes Scott Derrickson and Robert Cargil. Scott Derrickson was originally attached to direct but his commitments to "Doctor Strange" now prevent that.
