Die Hard 6 Moves Forward with Conjuring Writers

Die Hard 6 Moves Forward with Conjuring Writers
Bruce Willis confirmed just this past February that Die Hard 6 is definitely still happening. Now the project is chugging forward at a faster rate, with 20th Century Fox bringing on new writers. The studio has hired Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, the sibling scribe team best known for their work on The Conjuring franchise. They will rewrite the Die Hard 6 script. Len Wiseman is still attached to direct this action sequel, and also serve as a producer alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Die Hard 6 will bring back Bruce Willis, reprising his iconic role as New York cop John McClane, but the story will actually focus on a much younger John McClane as a NYPD cop in the 1970s. Bruce Willis is expected to appear in present-day scenes that will bookend the movie, that will shift back and forth between present-day and the 1970s. While Bruce Willis was originally expected to make

Moving can be a real pain. Finding that perfect house can be an even bigger inconvenience. Well, if I ever had any sort of informal education from horror movies, I’ve learned two fundamental truths. There’s gonna be trouble if hooking up with a beautiful woman is effortlessly easy, or if you run across a seemingly sweet real estate property at a ridiculously low price. I’ll go a bit further and say that said real estate property is probably going to be a murder house inhabited by a vengeful spirit with some serious emotional baggage. I would almost bet the farm on it.

What Renaissance Pictures did for geek TV

Feature David Menzies 12 Apr 2013 - 07:00

Would we have had Mutant Enemy or Bad Robot without Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert's Renaissance Pictures? David thinks not...

After 1992's Army Of Darkness, another Sam Raimi feature film wouldn't emerge in theatres for another three years. What Raimi did with the time in between is anybody's guess - perhaps he wandered the world; maybe he dug through a peculiar collection of Spider-Man comics with most of the dialogue cut out. But what he certainly did with his Renaissance Pictures partners was bring to light a new frontier of genre TV (cue heroic music and a narrator saying, "This is the story of a time long ago – a time of myth and legend. When the ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering, only one man dared to challenge their power...")

Go House Hunting with the Beastmaster this March

The American dream once again becomes the American scream when two families looking to buy a new home attend an open house only to find themselves trapped in a hellish nightmare unleashed by the wrathful spirit of the original owner.

This sounds like a job for Dar the Beastmaster… I mean Marc Singer!

Marc Singer, Janey Gioiosa, Hayley DuMond, Paul McGill, Rebekah Kennedy, Victoria Vance and Art Lafleur star in Eric Hurt’s House Hunting, the new horror movie in which it isn’t just the house that’s condemned.

If the American dream for most families is buying a house, then for the two families headed to what they think is a simple open house, their dream is about to become a nightmare. We meet our two very different families as they search for the perfect house to call a home. When both families show up at the deserted farmhouse,

Hollywood! Adapt This: The Beastmaster

This week has seen some progress in video game adaptations Splinter Cell, which landed Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) in a lead role, and Deus Ex, which will be written and directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister). While it appears the Hollywood Adaptation machine for new movies is still running strong (for better or worse), sometimes an old property deserves to be revisited, refreshed and rebooted.  Today's suggestion first graced the screens thirty years ago and spawned two (terrible) sequels, a TV series and a cult following. An early work from director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm), this swords-and-sandals picture was a very loose adaptation of a book series from award-winning author, Andre Norton. Hit the jump to see why there's more to this property than you might think. Hollywood! Adapt this: The Beastmaster.

B-Sides: Beastmaster 2 Rocks Los Angeles

Like a mentally handicapped remake of Dolph Lundgren’s Masters of the Universe, Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time sent a half-naked fantasy adventurer to modern-day Earth to defeat the forces of evil and bring back to his tribal people the greatest magical force in the universe: rock ‘n roll.

Nearly a decade after the release of the Don Coscarelli-directed cult favorite Beastmaster Marc Singer once again donned his loin cloth and bitchin’ mullet to return to the role of Dar, the Dr. Doolittle of barbarians, for a sequel with its tongue planted so firmly in cheek it often came close to choking to death on that tongue. The more sitcom than fantasy adventure sequel saw Dar and his animal sidekicks dimensional traveling to 1991 Los Angeles to save a spoiled party girl from an overacting warlock searching our world for a thermonuclear paint can.

The Beastmaster Real-Time Review: Never Doubt Our Commitment To Diaper Power

  • Pajiba
Welcome to Pajiba's newest experiment. Something we've never attempted before -- a real-time review, done by two people 3000 miles away from each other. For tonight's feature, we'll be discussing the 1982 classic, The Beastmaster, otherwise known as "The Best Fucking Movie Ever." Your hosts this evening are Tk, most well-known for his irritability, misanthropy, general disdain for all humans (yes, including you) and burgeoning alcoholism, and Joanna, best known for general cleverness, a dedication to witticism, and burgeoning alcoholism. Let's get right to it, shall we?

Jr: The porno-vibe evoked by the title Beastmaster is not helped by the opening shots of taxidermied animals that look like they belong in your uncle's rape basement.

Exclusive: Marc Singer Speaks on Return to ‘V’ and Season 3 Expectations, BeastMaster

It’s not everyday you get to speak to a living legend like Marc Singer. The former BeastMaster star was at WonderCon this past weekend, showing his support for the V reboot and talking about his role as Lars Tremont.

Singer graciously shared with us his thoughts on ABC’s V, how he thinks Elizabeth Mitchell is doing as the Fifth Column ringleader and his prospects for coming back to the show should it be renewed for a third season. Of course, we couldn’t get this close to the original BeastMaster without asking him if there should be another reboot of that in film form.

He also shares with us what he checks out when he comes to events like WonderCon and Comic Con.

Of course, there’s still another month and a half to go before V gets word on an official renewal. Hopefully, Season 3 will get the

Exclusive Interview: Elizabeth Mitchell Talks ‘V’ Season 3

During WonderCon 2011 this past weekend, we had the pleasure of speaking with self-professed sci-fi geek Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), who was on hand with legend Marc Singer (BeastMaster, Original V Series) and Executive Producer Scott Rosenbaum to talk about V.

Of course, V is currently in renewal limbo, so Elizabeth was there to pump up fans and make sure that a third season does happen. She talked to us about that wild Season 2 finale, her thoughts on Season 3 and just how her character Erica will react to Anna’s latest victory. Wondering where Hobbes went? She also dishes on her thoughts on what happened to the treacherous mercenary. Finally, she gives us her idea on how the whole show should end.

Fans will find out if V is renewed once the ABC Upfront Presentations happen in May. Stay tuned here for more info.

The 10 Most Cheesilicious Sword And Sorcery Films

  • Pajiba
A couple of weekends ago, after a vigorous night of drinking and carrying on, I found myself idly scanning the cable channels, looking for something to help me fall asleep before the spinning walls caught up with me. I flipped past the abominable 1987 adaptation, Masters Of The Universe, and then flipped back to it, because I'd completely forgotten about it. The movie had been on for 20 minutes. I watched the entire remainder of it, fascinated and strangely enjoying myself.

There's a great deal of fun to be had with the sword and sorcery genre, particularly for those of us who grew up with comic books, Dungeons & Dragons (both the RPG and the Saturday morning cartoon), the artwork of Frank Frazetta, and books by the likes of David Eddings, R.A. Salvatore, and the Weis/Hickman combo responsible for the Dragonlance novels (Raistlin forever, motherfuckers). Particularly in the 80's, there were a
