‘Based on a true story’? Check. Rural American setting packed full of aggressive Hillbillies and weirdos? Check. Not really based on a true story? Check. One of the most annoying American teenagers ever to inhabit a horror film this side of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s Franklin? Check and check, in spades. Said teenage irritation and his three relatively bland friends get into trouble seeking a fabled strip club (really) out in rural America.

What sets American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire apart from its fellow Deliverance and Texas Chain Saw Massacre imitators is its devotion to sleaze and annoyance. Both, for the most part, being intentional. Bevvies of big

Hunger Games Tribute Up For Endless Love Remake

With its need for plenty of fresh-faced, young actors to fill the roles of it numerous doomed tributes, The Hunger Games proved a spectacular showcase for more than just its leads. Prior to this sci-fi adventure, Nigeria-born actor Dayo Okeniyi had only a couple of short films and a TV movie to his name. But after playing the brawny yet compassionate Thresh of District 11, Okeniyi scored roles in a string of features including James Ponsoldt's critically heralded The Spectacular Now, the recently wrapped horror-thriller Slew Hampshire, and the upcoming Ben Affleck-fronted crime drama Runner, Runner. Still, his next part could be his biggest yet. THR reports Okeniyi has entered into talks to join Universal Picture's remake of the 1981 drama Endless Love. Re-imagined by Gossip Girl writer Joshua Safran, the remake's script was given a polish pass by Country Strong writer-director Shana Feste, who is also set to helm.

Next Factor: The Hunger Games' Star Dayo Okeniyi

Hollywood newcomer Dayo Okeniyi has been thrust into the spotlight as Thresh, one of the Tributes in "The Hunger Games" who is, as he puts it in his Twitter bio, "the reason Katniss makes it to Catching Fire No biggie." Uh, yeah, it's a biggie! And so is Dayo, who moved to Los Angeles just a few years ago to become an actor. Hey, he's always got a bachelor's degree in Visual Communications Design if this whole "being awesome" thing doesn't work out. We suspect it will, though.

Age: 23

Hometown: Dayo grew up in Lagos, Nigeria.

What He's Done: This is his first feature-length film!

What He's Doing Now: He plays Thresh, the other Tribute from District 11 along with Rue (Amandla Stenberg). We can't give much away about his character, but suffice it to say he's pretty darn tough, and Katniss thinks highly of him.

Hollywood's Up-and-Coming Black Actors

February is Black History Month, and right now two African-American actors are Oscars front-runners (we're talking about you, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer). Plus, the talented and beautiful Adepero Oduye and Paula Patton were included in Vanity Fair's annual Young Hollywood issue -- which is usually all white.

In keeping with the props bestowed upon Hollywood's black performers this month, we present 13 black actors (and a bonus couple of pop stars transitioning to film) whose names you should memorize now, because we're predicting big things, juicy roles and long careers for all of them.

Nicole Beharie

Who She Is: The half-Nigerian, half-Jamaican beauty had a pivotal supporting role as the only woman Michael Fassbender actually wants to woo (and not just have sex with) in Steve McQueen's acclaimed drama "Shame."

Wicked Trailer for Slew Hampshire

Some guys just know how to put together a trailer. The creators of the upcoming film Slew Hampshire definitely know what they're doing. Writer/director Flood Reed brings us a horrific vision of backwoods violence set to some kick-ass background music. In this 90-second trailer you get buckets of blood and the biggest collection of psycho eyes you'll ever see in such a short span of time!

Starring Dayo Okeniyi, Claire Dodin, Tyler Rice, Matt Hish, Shawn Thomas, Brian Allen and (in my opinion) one of the scariest guys in the horror business, Michael Todd Schneider of August Underground's Mordum fame. I'm sure the rest of the cast is brilliant as the trailer is very entertaining, but Schneider gives me chills. If you listen closely to the background song, you'll hear a line mentioning something about "…backwoods mutherfuckery…" That seems to pretty much sum things up.

Check out the trailer below,

The talks have now been sorted out, and Banks has been officially confirmed for the role.

'The Hunger Games' - Does New Cast's Race Matter?

So, the last few days have shown us that writer Collins and director Ross decided to finally go ahead and cast black people in their movie (probably because everyone got pissed that they kept casting white people in all the ethnic roles), but now have finally moved on to casting white people again.

It's as if they cast the two blackest people whitey could find on short hand to quell the accusations of racism, and now they can go back to casting people like blond-haired, blue-eyed Elizabeth Banks in the other important roles.

District 12 tributes will be played by white people Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) and Josh Hutcherson (Peeta), and the District 11 tributes will be played by black actors Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh) and Amandla Stenberg (Rue). Okeniyi will actually be in an upcoming horror film with the crappily amusing title Slew Hampshire (oops! Oh well. Even George Clooney was in Return to Horror High
