It's been in the works for six years and retreats to new release dates seemingly every time the calendar draws near, however, the new Friday the 13th movie is very much alive and on its way back to the big screen, as the project has now added a new writer to its ranks, one who helped scribe the upcoming third season of NBC's Hannibal.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Nick Antosca (Hannibal Season 3, Believe) has been set to scribe a fresh draft of the new Friday the 13th movie for Paramount and Platinum Dunes. A prior draft was penned by Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg (upcoming The Autopsy of Jane Doe).
Slated for a May 13th, 2016 release, the next Friday the 13th film will be directed by David Bruckner (The Signal, "Amateur Night" segment of V/H/S). Though THR states the film is "expected to employ the found-footage technique »

The new Friday the 13th movie took yet another step back in January when Paramount nixed the November 2015 release and gave it the May 2016 spot instead, but hopefully that date will stick now that Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller have tapped Nick Antosca to pen a new draft of the script. Antosca has written for Teen Wolf, Last Resort and Believe, none of which really scream, "This guy would be perfect for Friday the 13th," but he did pen the script for an upcoming horror movie called The Forest. The film has Natalie Dormer and Michiel Huisman attached, and also already has distribution, so hopefully that's a sign Antosca can deliver. David Bruckner, the guy behind “Amateur Night” in V/H/S, is set to direct the film, which, according to THR, "is expected to employ the found-footage technique and answer the decades-old question of why slasher Jason Voorhees can't be killed. »

The scariest part of the first V/H/S film was easily the performance of Hannah Fierman, the infamous “I Like You” girl in the “Amateur Night” segment. Ever sense viewing that segment, I have been absolutely interested in what Fierman has been up to, project wise, and news has come our way that she has officially joined the cast of Events Surrounding A Pepper Tom & The Horror That Follows, a psychological thriller being crowdfunded via Kickstarter as you read this.
The buzz on the film has been growing at quite the rapid pace, with Spring Breakers and the upcoming Holidays horror anthology producer Brian James Fitzpatrick handling the productions ditues and and all practical FX extravagaza being planned by the Emmy nominated Jeremy Selenfriend (Boardwalk Empire, Chernobyl Diaries, The Blacklist, Netflix’s Daredevil) and his FX house, Monster in My Closet to get this thing done right!

I think Nick Kroll is a very funny guy. Whether it be television, film, podcast, or whatever, they man makes me laugh. So, I am very interested to see how he fairs in a slightly more dramatic role, which is what we will get with Adult Beginners. Thankfully, I will not have to wait that long, as it is showing at SXSW. According to my schedule, I will be seeing it on Tuesday the 17th. For those of you who don't get to see it as soon, you can check out the new trailer for the film below. That said, you won't have to wait too long to see it. Adult Beginners hits theaters and VOD on April 24th. The word out of Sundance wasn't overwhelmingly positive, but it wasn't hateful either. Kroll alongside Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Joel McHale, and Jane Krakowski, makes up a talented cast and with »

Cal’s promised havoc-wreaking will start next week, with the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. facing a new Marvel villain - Angar The Screamer…
Amongst all the Coke-can crushing, though, Kyle MacLachlan’s unhinged Cal was hopping around talking aloud about looking into the super-powers index and ‘wreaking some havoc’ for Coulson and co.
He will be following through on this idea sooner rather than later, popping up in next week’s One Of Us with a new powerful baddie helping him out - Jeff Daniel Phillips as Angar The Screamer. He’s empowered, you guessed it, by a superhuman scream. He first used it against Daredevil back in 1973, making us wonder if he will ever pop up on Netflix.
Also joining the fray will be Drea De Matteo as Karla Faye Gideon. This »
The Flash is returning to our telly boxes on Tuesday the 17th of March, with an episode that promises to blow the bloody the doors off of Barry Allen’s cosy status-quo. As you may already know from previous trailers and teasers, this is where the time travel antics look set to take a more central positioning.
However, this new trailer is interesting for other reasons besides hyping up time travel - it has also given us the first decent footage of Mark Hamill’s return to The Trickster. Have a look here, if you like…
The Flash is taking a break for a few weeks to iron out some scheduling errors. Reverse-Flash is taking centre stage when it returns…
We’ll get the non-spoilery news done first – The Flash is taking a few weeks off, giving Arrow some time to catch up (in a brilliant example of life imitating art). While Arrow will keep running for two weeks – before skipping a week as well – The Flash wont be on again at all until Tuesday the 17th of March. If none of that makes sense, see here.
When The Flash returns though, it would seem that smelly bodily exports will be hitting large rotating fans. If you’re a few weeks behind with The Flash, you will not want to read the rest of this story. In particular, if you haven’t caught up with the mid-season finale The Man In The Yellow Suit, you will »
It's been in the works for six years and has retreated to new release dates seemingly every time the calendar draws near, however, the new Friday the 13th movie is very much alive and on its way back to the big screen. But it's been a long return road to camp. Nobody knows that more than Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller, the creative mind who helped bring 2009's Friday the 13th to fruition. And with the next Friday the 13th film due out on May 13th, 2016, Fuller looks to bring Jason Voorhees back to life once again.
Friday the 13th is understandably on the minds of a lot of the franchise's fans on this unique Valentine's Day Eve, and with the fan base being all ears on any Camp Crystal Lake news, Fuller spoke with Esquire about what he's interested in exploring with the next Friday the 13th film, including »

Saturday night, D'Angelo sang live at the Apollo, where he gave fans a 14-minute rendition of his classic "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" as part of a three-hour, two-encore performance. (It ended in a singalong.) You might remember "Untitled" as the song off of Voodoo that anointed D'Angelo as the second coming, and also in some ways, sent him into a tailspin. (He's a sensitive guy!) D'Angelo first graced the stage of the Apollo on Amateur Night in 1991 at the age of 16. More than 20 years later, it's good to see have him back. »

Whiplash whip-master and recent Golden Globes winner J.K. Simmons will remind people that he has a funny side when he hosts Saturday Night Live on January 31st. The show will also mark musical guest D'Angelo's first televised performance since releasing Black Messiah in December.
The actor, whose comedy credits include playing the dad in Juno and appearances on Parks and Recreation and Arrested Development, last appeared on SNL in 1999 when he portrayed his Oz character Vern Schillinger for a skit in which Jerry Seinfeld went to HBO's fictional prison after the Seinfeld finale stank. »
