Earth To Echo Scribe Henry Gayden Confirms Report That He's Writing Shazam!

There's been a lot of major movement on the Shazam! front over the past week as it went from being just one film to being two as a solo feature for Black Adam was officially announced with Dwayne Johnson headlining. While both films are still in the very early stages of development, with still no directors attached, the recent activity has shed some light on who may be writing one of these two DC cinematic adventures. The Hollywood Reporter, in their initial report on Thursday, revealed that they believed Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo) had been assigned scriptwriting duties and on Friday, Gayden himself confirmed the news on his own personal Twitter account. Check out his exchange with a fan below: @annericelover Confirmed and loving what's to come... :)— Henry Gayden (@HenryGayden) January 20, 2017 Outside of Earth to Echo, which had a fairly average critical reception, Hayden has written the shorts Ham Sandwich and Zombie Roadkill.

Review: Earth to Echo

When watching a release from a first-time director, it's always difficult to know exactly what to expect. Judging by the previews, you might have expected Earth to Echo to be a sophisticated, effects-driven grand adventure on the scale of The Goonies or Et: The Extra-Terrestrial. What you'll get is a charming mashup that pulls its strongest influences from classics like Et, The Goonies and The Iron Giant but never finds enough of its own identity to become more than an "echo" of those sources.

Director Dave Green and writer Henry Gayden, who both worked on the small screen on the series Zombie Roadkill, have assembled a talented cast of relative unknown child actors including Teo Halm (Alex), Brian Bradley (Tuck), Reese Hartwig (Munch), and Ella Wahlestedt (Emma). The most recognizable face is the adult villain Dr. Madsen played by the unlikely Jason Gray-Stanford, best known as police Lt. Randy Disher in Monk.

Trailer: Earth To Echo Brings 80s Kid-Oriented Sci-Fi Up To Date

There is still hope for 80s nostalgia film lovers looking for that contemporary tie-in to the films we loved when we were kids. And it looks like our potential savior comes by way of director David Green. At least this time, the kids look to be a part of the adventure, simply not observers, as in previous efforts. Green is no stranger to us at Twitch. We have already expressed our love for his short film Ham Sandwich and series Zombie Roadkill. And now, we can look forward to his feature debut Earth to Echo, which will open in cinemas on July 2. Tuck, Munch and Alex are a closely bonded trio of inseparable friends, but their time together is coming to an end. Their neighborhood is...

First Trailer For Earth To Echo Promises A Found-Footage Super 8

While it’s nice to see that proponents of found-footage cinema are still strongly invested in moving the subgenre away from its horror roots, I just wish that more upcoming projects hinted at even a spark of originality. The first trailer for this summer’s Earth to Echo, a found-footage sci-fi flick set for release in July, appears to mash up Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial and J.J. AbramsSuper 8, but I can’t spy much about the project that seems even remotely intriguing.

You can check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments section, but I’m incredibly underwhelmed by the footage on display here. Even overlooking the fact that viewers will be treated to whiplash-inducing camerawork from a group of terrified kids, nothing stands out about the characters or even the central alien (evidently named Echo

  • IFC
Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures premiered a new webseries on FEARnet this week called "Zombie Roadkill. The six episode series stars "Sideways"' Thomas Haden Church, "The Ring"'s David Dorfman, and a cast of undead woodland creatures (I once had a squirrel chew his way through a wall into my attic, so I can relate). Before "Roadkill" began airing online, the cast came to Austin to show it to the Alamo Drafthouse faithful at Fantastic Fest 2010. Why? "I think everyone here's really happy and drunk," says series' director David Green.

Smart man. Here's our full report followed by the "Zombie Roadkill" trailer:

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Undead Squirrel. Zombie Roadkill Has Arrived.

No joke: There is a dead squirrel outside my house right now. It's a black one, which is apparently unusual everywhere else but the most common variety here in Toronto, and it lies nestled against the right rear tire of my car though I didn't kill it. It's just there. Has been since last night. I'm hoping someone from the city will take it away during trash pickup tomorrow. If it hasn't come back as one of the rampaging undead by this point I figure I'm probably pretty safe in assuming that it won't at all but you never can tell ...

The point of this ramble? David Green's Zombie Roadkill - produced by Sam Raimi - arrived online today with Fearnet releasing the first two episodes with additional eps due to hit online one a day every day for the rest of the week. Nobody is safe. Nobody. Least

FEARnet's 'Zombie Roadkill' teaser: Hot girls are always first to go

If you didn't fear rodents before, you may now.

Comedy-horror series, "Zombie Roadkill," starring "The Ring's" David Dorfman and featuring "Spiderman 3's" Thomas Haden Church premieres with its first two episodes on Monday, Oct. 4 on FEARnet.

Be prepared to laugh and then get startled by random zombie woodland creatures all hell-bent on payback. The series follows Dorfman and his crew of horny college co-eds as they take off for what was supposedly a fun weekend of camping at a National Park. That very quickly changes when the crew unwittingly run over a squirrel, who's not quite dead. Haden Church plays a park ranger who may be able to help get them out alive.

Watch a teaser for the series below:

Fantastic Fest 2010: Zombie Roadkill Review

It is not a common thing for a festival to give an entire slot over to just a single half hour film. And it is not a common thing for a festival to bring in cast and crew and give that film the full on gala treatment. And yet that is exactly what Fantastic Fest has done with Zombie Roadkill. And they've done it for a very simple reason. Because David Green's Sam Raimi produced, Thomas Haden Church starring film - actually an edited together version of a web series due to premiere on FEARnet October 4th - is a hysterically funny tour through everything that makes splatter comedy fun distilled down into its simplest, most direct form without any of that boring stuff that people load into these things to pad the running time.

The setup is familiar. A quartet of college kids - plus one geeky younger
