Stephen King's The Long Walk Is Happening at New Line

New Line Cinema is staying in business with iconic author Stephen King, after the success of It, the highest-grossing horror movie of all time. The studio is moving forward on an adaptation of Stephen King's The Long Walk, hiring James Vanderbilt to write the screenplay adaptation, although no one has been brought on to direct at this time. Vanderbilt will also produce through his Mythology Entertainment company, alongside partners Bradley Fisher and William Sherak, with Tracey Nyberg serving as an executive producer.

The Long Walk was first published in 1973, with Stephen King writing the book under his pen name RIchard Bachman.

Every year, the country holds an annual walking contest where 100 teenagers must keep walking under strict rules until only one is left standing, with the winner receiving a sizable prize. The

Chris Evans Wants To Play Two Characters In An Avengers/Fantastic Four Crossover

He’s most famous for playing Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the role of the Sentinel of Liberty is just the tip of the iceberg (Cap pun unintended) when it comes to Chris Evans’ comic book movie appearances. As well as featuring in the likes of Snowpiercer, The Losers and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Evans played Johnny Storm Aka the Human Torch in the first Fantastic Four films.

What fans have realized is that exciting new developments in the world of cinema now mean it’s possible for Evans’ two Marvel characters to come face to face. Last month, a historic deal between Disney and Fox was made, meaning that Marvel Studios now has access to the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. So, if they wanted to, Marvel could get Evans to reprise his role as Human Torch opposite himself as Captain America.

Blu-ray Review – It (2017)

It, 2017.

Directed by Andy Muschietti.

Starring Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Nicholas Hamilton, and Bill Skarsgard.

Synopsis:

A group of bullied kids band together when a monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

I saw the original miniseries of It when I was 9 years old. I couldn’t sleep for a month and have never seen the film in full again since that viewing. After seeing various clips from the miniseries since then, I recognize the cheesiness of the acting, effects and some of the writing, but it was still too terrifying for me to ever want to fully revisit.

I never caught the new It in theatres, though I was curious to see it despite the fact director Andy Muschietti’s remake looked 10X scarier than the miniseries. After some hesitation, I finally sat down

‘Slender Man’ Trailer Uses All The Horror Tropes

The Slender Man legend is one of the oldest creepypasta stories around. So old that it feels like the Sony film revolving around this character feels stale on arrival. The trailer feels like one of those Funny or Die trailers without any type of punchline. While this feels like a total cash-in on the character, the question is, do fans of the story even care? Especially after the sad story that became a HBO documentary, Beware the Slenderman

You may remember that many people were trying to make a film adaptation out of The Slender Man but had many issues where many different people claimed they were the genesis of the character. In the Press Release I received, it seems like they nailed it down (or at least credited) to Victor Surge (which is a pseudonym of Eric Knudsen). Let’s watch the trailer, shall we?

Father Of Slender Man Attacker Calls Out Film For “Popularizing A Tragedy”

Beware the Slender Man.

Eric Knudsen’s modern-day boogeyman has been the talk of the town ever since Wednesday’s haunting trailer reveal, and though the Sony horror flick resonated with many, Bill Weier considers the Slender Man movie to be “extremely distasteful.”

Weier’s 12-year-old daughter, Anissa, was one of two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls who stabbed their classmate in order to please the fictional entity. It’s unclear as to whether Sony’s feature film will incorporate this disturbing true-life incident into its story, but that hasn’t stopped Bill Weier from voicing his opinion via the Associated Press (with a tip of the hat to The Hollywood Reporter):

It’s absurd they want to make a movie like this. It’s popularizing a tragedy, is what it’s doing. I’m not surprised, but in my opinion it’s extremely distasteful. All we’re doing is extending

The Slender Man Cometh [Trailer]

Ah, the Slender Man. The internet meme which has taken on a life of it's own and even been cited as the cause for murder.

For a moment, it looked like this story movie might be based on the 2014 attempted murder of a teen girl by two of her classmates but from the trailer, Slender Man is just another horror movie based on the popular character.

The first trailer for Slender Man features a slew of mesmerizing images but little in the way of story. The movie, directed by Sylvain White (I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Losers) [Continued ...]

First trailer & poster for ‘Slender Man’

Directed by Sylvain White (The Losers) and starring Joey King (Wish Upon), Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso and Javier Botet (Freehold, Mama), Slender Man tells the story of a tall, thin horrifying figure with unnaturally long arms and a featureless face, who is reputed to be responsible for the haunting and disappearance of countless children and teens.

In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of Slender Man. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, His latest victim.

'Slender Man': Watch Disturbing First Trailer for Meme-Based Horror Film

Update: Bill Weier, the father of Anissa Weier who was one of the two girls at the center of the Slender Man trial, siad that making the movie was in "extreme poor taste" and has asked theatres not to show it, per Associated Press.

‘Slender Man’ Trailer Reveals the Creepy Film Adaptation

Screen Gems has released the first trailer for the Slender Man movie, a horror adaptation of the famous Slender Man lore that was created from the Something Awful forum. Sylvian White (The Losers) directs the film with a screenplay by David Birke (Elle), which takes place in a small Massachusetts town where four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the Slender Man myth.

Here’s The First Trailer For Upcoming Horror Film ‘Slender Man’

The Slender Man trailer has arrived along with a first poster for the upcoming horror movie. The film, which is based on the internet phenomenon created all of the way back in 2009, is due in U.S. cinemas from May 18, 2018 and this afternoon IGN debuted that very first promo. Watch it below.

Slender Man is directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, The Losers) and is based on the fictional supernatural character that originated as a creepypasta Internet meme created by ‘Something Awful’ forums user Eric Knudsen in 2009. It is depicted as a thin, unnaturally tall man with a featureless head and face, wearing a black suit.

Haunting First Trailer For Slender Man Creeps Online

The urban legend is officially headed for theaters as IGN has premiered the inaugural trailer for Slender Man, Screen Gems and Sylvain White’s horror flick due to arrive on May 18th.

Lifting inspiration from the titular Internet phenomenon, one hatched by Eric Knudsen almost 10 years ago, Slender Man is a long-brewing thriller from the mind of David Birke, who’s perhaps best known for his contribution to Paul Verhoeven’s Elle. This time around, he’s dealing with a modern-day myth, as Slender Man has spawned countless memes, video games, and even an attempted murder in 2014, when two young girls stabbed one of their classmates in an alleged ‘sacrifice’ to the online boogeyman. Chills.

And like all great horror stories, that impossibly tall ghoul has even inspired some half-baked clones, including The Tall Man and The Bye-Bye Man. Neither film was really up to snuff, though, which lends Slender

First Trailer and Poster Creep in For the Upcoming Slender Man Horror Movie

Screen Gems has released the first trailer and poster for the upcoming Slender Man horror movie. The legend of Slender Man has been around for some time and I'm surprised it took so long to get a feature film made. The movie was directed by Sylvain White (Stomp The Yard, The Losers) and it actually looks like it could be pretty creepy! Since I have a fascination with these kinds of urban legends, I'm kinda looking forward to checking this out.

For those of you not familiar with the legend, the character came from a Photoshop challenge on the Something Awful forums. The challenge tasked users to take boring or dull photos and add a nightmarish element too them. The Slender Man idea came from the mind of Eric Knudsen a.k.a. "Victor Surge," who posted a couple photos of children with a tall suited figure standing in the background.

Chilling First Poster For Slender Man Debuts

At this point, Slender Man needs no introduction. A creepy, wire-thin figure, he’s been revered as something of an Internet legend since his inception in 2009, stalking nightmares and effectively clawing his way into popular culture thanks to a string of nerve-shredding short films, an appearance in Microsoft’s über-popular Minecraft and even two video games.

For having so much exposure in the horror scene, it’s small wonder then why it’s taken so long for a Hollywood studio to fast-track a live-action feature film, but thankfully, Screen Gems jumped at the chance in early 2016. Scribe David Birke (Elle, 13 Sins) is handling the script, with French director Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, The Losers) doling out the scares from behind the camera. And now, with production underway, the studio has debuted the chilling first poster, which can be seen below.

It Director’s Cut To Arrive In Early 2018

Just when you thought Pennywise had been silenced until 2019, director Andy Muschietti goes ahead and announces that a super-sized version of It will arrive early next year.

Granted, we already knew that this was on the cards, but up until now, we weren’t sure when exactly we could expect to see it. Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting, though, we’ve received an update today, as Muschietti told the outlet that his Director’s Cut would be released in “a few months” – which pegs it for an early 2018 debut. Unfortunately, he wouldn’t get anymore specific than that, but in the meantime, fans can look forward to the theatrical version of It hitting Blu-ray in January.

From what we know, it’ll be a must-buy release, too, as Warner Bros. has packed in a ton of deleted scenes, which have been outlined as follows:

Jessica Chastain Wants to Play Adult Beverly in It 2

Jessica Chastain Wants to Play Adult Beverly in It 2
Even though it's very early, It 2 is easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. Given how well received It has been, that alone is going to bring a lot of attention to the sequel. But there's also the matter of who is going to play the adult members of The Losers Club. One popular bit of fan casting has been to have Jessica Chastain play the adult version of Beverly. Now, the actress has signed off on the idea herself.

Jessica Chastain is currently promoting her new movie Molly's Game. She was recently doing an interview with her co-star Idris Elba and she was asked about the possibility of taking on the role of Beverly in the It sequel. While she can't commit just yet, Chastain wouldn't rule it out and expressed her love for director Andy Muschietti and producer Barbara Muschietti. Here's what she had to say about it.

Jessica Chastain Game To Play Adult Bev For New Line Horror Sequel It: Chapter Two

Soon after Andy Muschetti’s horror reboot began raking in the box office cash – It‘s lifetime total is now simmering around $677 million (!) – and New Line and Warner Bros. issued the go-ahead for a sequel, it didn’t take long before the Internet dreamed up a wishlist of big-name stars for the adult Losers Club.

And so, as Bill Hader (Richie) and John Krasinski (Ben) were tossed into the proverbial hat for It: Chapter Two, Beverly Marsh quickly boiled down to a two-horse race between Amy Adams (Justice League) and Jessica Chastain. Neither Adams nor Chastain have been approached about a potential deal, but when Screen Rant caught up with the latter, the Molly’s Game actress revealed her desire to reunite with Andy and Barbara Muschetti.

As you’ll no doubt remember, that creative trio worked together on Mama, the 2013 cult hit that was based on Andy Muschetti’s

Robotech Movie Gets Wonder Woman Writer
With It remake director Andy Muschietti coming aboard Sony's long-gestating Robotech adaptation in July, the project has added another key creative addition with Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) signing on to write the script. This adaptation has been in development for several years, but now it seems it may finally have a shot of making it through production. Still, the studio hasn't set a production start date or even a release date yet, but still it's good news for fans of the franchise who have been waiting years to see this story on the big screen.

Deadline reports that Jason Fuchs will be working with Andy Muschietti to craft a brand new story from scratch, meaning they will discard the drafts written by several different writers over the years. We first reported on this adaptation back in 2008, when Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan signed on to write the script. Since then,
