Movie Version of ‘Eat, Brains, Love’ Zombie Novel in Works at Van Toffler’s Gunpowder & Sky

Gunpowder & Sky, the youth-focused studio launched by ex-Viacom exec Van Toffler in January, has signed an exclusive deal for a film adaptation of “Eat, Brains, Love,” a comedic zombie road-trip novel by Jeff Hart.

G&S, backed by At&T and Chernin Group’s Otter Media, is working on the project with Diga, an independent production studio founded by former MTV executive Tony Disanto, and author James Frey’s Full Fathom Five media and production firm.

The project reunites Toffler and Disanto, whose productions at MTV included “Jersey Shore,” “Scream,” “Teen Wolf” and “My Super Psycho Sweet 16.” The companies said they are in talks with potential screenwriters for “Eat, Brains, Love.”

“Eat, Brains, Love” — the title is a play on Elizabeth Gilbert’s best-selling novel “Eat, Pray, Love” — is the story of a pair of high-school sweethearts who contract a mysterious zombie virus and devour the brains of half their senior class.

Gunpowder & Sky Announces Film Adaptation Of Zombie Road Trip Novel ‘Eat, Brains, Love’

Gunpowder & Sky (G&S), the digital-first studio founded by former MTV executive Van Toffler, has announced its first project since launching in January: a film adaptation of Eat, Brains, Love -- the zombie road trip novel by Jeff Hart.

G&S will team with independent production studio Diga and digital book publisher Full Fathom Five -- which also creates television shows, films, and video games -- on the forthcoming film. Diga was founded by Tony Disanto, whom Toffler calls his “former work wife and Jersey Shore co-production partner,” while Full Fathom Five is the brainchild of novelist James Frey.

“It’s got everything you need from a movie,” said Disanto in a statement, “high school insanity, zombie sex, action, zombie sex (again) and over the top violence.” Disanto and Toffler also previously produced several teen-oriented horror projects together at MTV including Teen Wolf, Scream, and My Super Psycho Sweet 16.

Synchronicity Review

Not many filmmakers can turn heads with a single release, but Jacob Gentry earned his must-watch potential after striking gold with 2007’s The Signal (a shared effort with David Bruckner and Dan Bush). All eyes were on what Gentry would do next, which ended up being a three-part slasher franchise on MTV known as My Super Psycho Sweet 16 – which, admittedly, weren’t the worst. But his televised splatterfests didn’t showcase Gentry’s full potential, which makes Synchronicity all that much sweeter a return for the ambitious indie auteur. Once again Gentry explodes with genre vibrancy (Sci-fi this time), as we’re transported to a metallic future that’s molded into an engrossing cinematic universe. Gentry does more than make movies, he builds entire worlds. It’s immersion in the fullest form.

Chad McKnight stars as Jim Beale, a physicist who is on the verge of mastering time-travel. Aided by his laboratory associates,

Review: Synchronicity

When 2007’s The Signal first hit audiences, it did a hell of a job showing a small glimpse of the capabilities of the film’s trio of writer/directors, David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry. Each director’s segment felt completely different from the previous director’s, and there was a sense of promise that you felt upon watching the film, one that made you know each of the three filmmakers would go onto promising futures in storytelling. Bruckner went on to direct the best segment of the first V/H/S film and is now set to helm the latest Friday The 13th, while Bush directed one of the most memorable films of this year, the sci-fi grounded in reality film The Reconstruction Of William Zero (review). Gentry, following The Signal, focused on solid short films, and the made for MTV slasher series of films, My Super Psycho Sweet 16.

Synchronicity: Exclusive Pics from Sci-Fi Noir and Fantasia Premiere

We Visit The Set of 'Joy Ride 3: Roadkill"

  • FEARnet
We Visit The Set of 'Joy Ride 3: Roadkill
Absolutely nobody suffers from road rage like Rusty Nail. In 2001's thriller Joy Ride, the growly-voiced trucker taught a trio of travelers a deadly lesson for pulling a prank on him. The direct-to-dvd sequel, Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead found Rusty targeting some youngsters who were stranded and stupidly "borrowed" a car from him. Now, the bloodiest instalment, Joy Ride 3: Roadkill, hits DVD today.

The movie follows a bunch of streetcar racers – Jordan <Jesse Hutch>, Jewel <Kirsten Prout>, Mickey <Ben Hollingsworth>, Alisa <Leela Savasta>, Austin <Gianpaolo Venuta> and Bobby <Jake Manley> - on the way to a rally. A little too cocky for their own good, they commit the ultimate driving sin against Rusty <Ken Kirzinger> and pay the price for their recklessness.

"They speed past him and Rusty takes exception to it," states Hollingsworth during a break on production. "He pulls out in front of them. They are hotshot kids in a new race car and they show him up and speed past him.

Killogy Animated Series Pits Murderers Against A Voodoo Curse

Sometimes it doesn't take much to sell me on a premise. Killogy is one of those, where the notion of three over-the-top criminals squaring off against voodoo magic is too good to resist.

You may already be familiar with Killogy, an Idw comic by Alan Roberts that mixes horror and comedy into a concoction of splatstick madness. Featuring the likenesses of Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, "The Sopranos"), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones) and Brea Grant ("Dexter"), it seems like a no-brainer that this could translate quite easily into some kind of show or movie.

Enter "The Boondocks" creator Rodney Barnes, who will do exactly that. Deadline reports that both Barnes and Roberts will serve as executive producers on a Killogy animated series, which will see Vincent, Ramone and Grant lending their vocal talents to the proceedings.

Killogy will be produced by Chris White (My Super Psycho Sweet 16) and Jeff Mazzola,

Victoria Justice Struts Her Eye Candy for MTV

MTV is really enjoying its run in with the horror genre which began officially several years ago with the original My Super Psycho Sweet 16. Word of another project has just hit the wire, and we continue to be perplexed by when exactly we can tune in to the network to actually hear music.

Todd Lincolns The Apparition Spooks up an Early DVD and Blu-ray Release

After a surprisingly lackluster performance at the Us box office Todd Lincoln's supernatural chiller 'The Apparition' is being rushed onto DVD and Blu-ray. The flick which stars hottie Ashley Greene -below ('Twilight') and 'Black Swan' star Sebastian Stan hit theatres towards the end of August and didn't so much as manage to scrape into the top ten. The less than supportive reviews that came with it didn't exactly help. Warner Bros will now be unleashing the project onto both DVD and Blu-ay on the 27 November but there still appears to be no word of any form of release for the movie here in the UK. Tom Felton ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1'), Julianna Guill ('Friday the 13th', 'My Super Psycho Sweet 16') and Luke Pasqualino co-star....

What’s In A Best Kiss? MTV Stars’ Opinions Might Differ From Yours

[ video unavailable on this device ]

Just as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have dominated the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category for the past four years — including last night, when KStew had to settle for a little onstage self love — their first onscreen lip lock was victorious in our own tournament last week. By an overwhelming majority of 84 to 16 percent, the Twilight kiss crushed The Notebook in our Ultimate Best Kiss Smoochdown. Judging by that vote, you guys your kisses wrought with tension and danger, but no tongue.

VH1 News hit up the Movie Awards carpet last night to find out what the stars thought was their own best kiss, and their tastes tend to differ from the typical Twi-hard.

“A five-minute Frencher is usually the go-to, and if that’s too long of a scene and people get all weird about it, then a nice, light tongue nibble on the lip kind of thing with groaning,
