Strangers Things Casts Cary Elwes And Jake Busey For Season 3

Stranger Things season 3 is set to begin filming later this month and, ahead of the Netflix phenomenon once again going in front of the cameras, two exciting new casting additions have been revealed to be moving to the weird and frightening town of Hawkins.

Cary Elwes – familiar to modern horror fans as Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the Saw films – is joining the ensemble cast as Mayor Kline, suggesting that season 3 will finally introduce us to the mayor of Hawkins. With all the odd shenanigans going on in the town, we expect him to be a very shady individual indeed. Meanwhile, Jake Busey – set to star in the upcoming Predator – is set to play a man named Bruce. That’s all we know about his role for now, though.

Elwes should definitely be right at home on Stranger Things, as he’s yet another cast member who’s previously appeared in a fondly-remembered classic 1980s movie.

‘Upgrade’ Trailer & Poster Unveil Leigh Whannell’s Bloody Directorial Debut

Blumhouse Productions has unveiled the first trailer and poster for the sic-fi/revenge film, ‘Upgrade‘. The film marks the directorial debut of Leigh Whannell, the writer behind the Saw and Insidious franchises. The plot follows Logan Marshall-Green‘s Grey Trace who, after being paralyzed in a mugging that kills his wife, is presented with an experimental cure to his paralysis called Stem–an artificial implant that gives him abilities beyond anything than he could have imagined. Described as a “Thrilling and hyper violent vision of the future”, the film premiered a this year’s SXSW festival, and this is what one critic had to say:

Leigh Whannell’s latest film Upgrade is one of the most strikingly invigorated sci-fi watches I’ve been awestruck by in quite some time. I’m talking *hard* sci-fi, with callbacks to anything from eXistenZ to The Matrix to Minority Report. Whannell customizes an “efficient

The Writers of Jigsaw Are Working on Another Saw Sequel

A couple of months ago it was rumored that Lionsgate was going to be developing a ninth film in the Saw franchise. It shouldn't come as a surprise. Jigsaw was a big success for the studio, and as long as these Saw films keep raking in the cash, Lionsgate is going to continue to make sequel after sequel until finally, people stop watching them.

Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that the studio is now actually moving forward with these plans and that they have hired the writers of Jigsaw, Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, to bring back that bloody magic. They are currently actively developing that script.

The report says they are "unsure if the next installment will be a direct followup to Jigsaw or Saw 3D: The Final Chapter." Aren't they part of the same story though, just with a different name? It's just going to be the ninth chapter in the horror franchise.

Ninth Saw Movie Reportedly In The Works With Jigsaw Scribes

Contrary to popular belief (and common sense?), Saw: The Final Chapter did not signal the end of Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate’s cult horror franchise. And neither did Jigsaw, it seems.

Sources close to Bloody Disgusting suggest Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) are currently in the midst of developing a ninth Saw movie, though it’s unclear if this continuation will be angled as a direct sequel to Jigsaw or The Final Chapter – or something else entirely.

What we can tell you, however, is that Jigsaw helmers Michael and Peter Spierig will not be returning to the director’s chair, meaning the Powers That Be will likely be sending out the feelers to find a potential replacement(s), if they haven’t already.

Buoyed by the return of John Kramer (Tobin Bell), Jigsaw scored $102 million off the back of a $10 million production budget back in October,

Jigsaw Writers Currently Working on Next Saw Movie

The chances of seeing another Saw movie hitting theaters has taken another small step forward, as the writers of Jigsaw are reportedly hard at work penning Saw 9. As ever, the critical reception for the eighth film in the enduring horror franchise was lukewarm to say the least, but it was a solid box-office hit and laid the groundworks for future sequels, and this certainly appears to be happening.

First Upgrade Trailer Teases What May Be One Of 2018’s Most Stylish Action Flicks

By now, there shouldn’t be a horror fan reading this who isn’t familiar with the work of Leigh Whannell. Having previously penned films such as Saw, Insidious and Dead Silence, the screenwriter/actor has proven himself to be quite the asset for studios looking for bold new intellectual properties.

So, as was the case with Insidious: Chapter 3, he’s writing and directing the upcoming science fiction/action flick Upgrade, which I must admit is taking me by surprise. As you can imagine, I naturally thought this to be a horror movie upon first hearing that Whannell was behind it, but I’m pleasantly pleased that the footage I’ve thus far seen has defied my expectations.

In short, the picture “centers on Grey Trace, a technophobe in a utopian near-future when computers control nearly everything – from cars to crime-surveillance – who’s paralyzed in a freak mugging. But when
