Jonathan Craven (son of Wes) and Cody Zwieg - who previously produced The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes remakes - are back with a new thriller entitled Charm, from director Ashley Cahill.
Kirsten Dunst apparently makes a cameo as well.
Cahill plays Malcolm, a young man whose principle interests are movies, New York, and mass murder. He's a New Yorker who gets tired of how gentrified, tepid and antiseptic it's all become. So, he decides to take matters into his own hands by personally starting a crime wave which he hopes will catch on and drive real estate value down, opening up the city to bohemians, artists and a swell of creativity, just like the supposed good 'ole days of the 1970s and '80s. The only problem is: Nobody is paying attention. »
Kirsten Dunst/Camille On the Road poster If this isn't an all-out smile, I don't know what is. Those sparkling white teeth and healthy-looking gums belong to Kirsten Dunst. What a world! What a life! What a dentist!. I'm assuming Dunst's is the last On the Road "character" poster we're adding, as every major On the Road character has already gotten his/her poster. Dunst's actually came out before the ones for the film's three leads, Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kristen Stewart. We're just late posting it. In On the Road, Dunst plays Camille, the wife of Dean Moriarty (Hedlund), who leaves her behind to go on the road with the much younger Marylou (Stewart). Camille is based on Carolyn Cassady, the first wife of the sexually adventurous Neal Cassady (Moriarty in the novel/film). Sissy Spacek played Carolyn Cassady in John Byrum's Heart Beat, based on Cassady's 1976 book of memoirs, »

Charm is a fresh, shocking and darkly comic film in the vein of American Psycho and A Clockwork Orange. The film marks the feature debut of writer/director Ashley Cahill, who also stars in the film as “a New Yorker who goes on a crime spree in protest of how gentrified and antiseptic his beloved city has become. The only problem is nobody takes notice of his acts.”

 Patrick Wilson could be reuniting with his Insidious director James Wan for The Conjuring, as he and Vera Farmiga enter final talks to star in the new supernatural thriller. Written by Chad and Carey Hayes, the script centers around a married couple (Wilson and Farmiga) investigating spirits in a Rhode Island farmhouse, in what turns out to be the most terrifying case of their demonology careers. The plot is inspired by the true-life tale of the Perron family in the 1970s, as chronicled by daughter Andrea Perron in her memoir House of Darkness House of Light: The True Story. Wilson currently stars on the big screen in Jason Reitman's Young Adult, and on the small screen in CBS' A Gifted Man. He'll next appear in Ridley Scott's Prometheus, due out this summer. Vera Farmiga will star in next month's Safe House opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Production »
