Amblin Acquiring Julian Terry’s Horror Short ‘Whisper’ For Fright Feature

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Amblin Partners is closing a deal to turn the horror short Whisper into a feature film. Julian Terry, who directed the short, is finalizing a deal to helm the movie.

The Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing. Bryce McGuire will write the script. The short is a scary scenario in which household tech devices are used as a gateway for a supernatural entity that has scores to settle. Sources say the feature version has a Poltergeist feel which seems a good fit for Amblin. The producers shopped the package last week and Amblin execs Andrew Calof and Jeb Brody moved quickly to secure it.

The short lasts just long enough to create a scare, and its brevity and proof of concept makes it reminiscent of shorts like Mama, the Spanish short film that launched the careers of It‘s Andy and Barbara Muschietti.

Interview: Javier Botet Talks Getting into Character for Mara, Finding Freedom on Two Pigeons, and More

  • DailyDead
Arriving in theaters and on VOD this Friday is Clive Tonge’s Mara, a supernatural thriller centered on a paranormal entity of the same name who strikes her victims by utilizing sleep paralysis as a weapon.

Daily Dead recently spoke with Botet about his creative process on Mara, how he approaches collaborating with filmmakers on bringing their visions to life, and he even discussed the freedom he experienced recently on Two Pigeons (aka Freehold), in which he plays a stowaway living inside a guy’s apartment and takes full advantage of his stealthy status, as the makeup-free experience allowed him to really let loose.

So great to speak with you, Javier. In terms of Mara, and maybe this applies to other movies as well, but when you're coming on to do a character like this, what is your process as an actor? Do you work out the physicality before the makeup process,

A Bloody Bev Headlines New Set Photo From It: Chapter Two

Beverly Marsh drenched in (fake) blood? It can only be the latest set photo from It: Chapter Two.

The New Line horror sequel is currently in the final stages of production as it prepares for a primetime release in September of 2019, and with big-name stars like Jessica Chastain (Marsh) and James McAvoy (Bill Denbrough) already moving on to X-Men: Dark Phoenix, it’s only a matter of time before writer-director Andy Muschietti has arrived at a finished cut of It: Chapter Two.

Until that day arrives, though, the filmmaker has served up the next best thing – a new set photo of Jessica Chastain as the adult Bev draping her arms around Muschietti, despite the fact she’s smeared in blood. It’s all in good fun, of course, as Chastain and Muschietti previously worked together on the horror hit Mama.

Most folks know the names Doug Jones and Andy Serkis, but far fewer people probably know the name Javier Botet.

Basically, if you see a super lanky creature with big hands in a film, it's probably Botet. Learn more about the actor in the video below, and check out some clips of the films you may have seen him in:

The Flash Is Casting Rag Doll For Season 5

Having known since last month that Cicada will serve as the big bad throughout The Flash‘s fifth season, it’s about time we begin learning more about the guest villains popping up in Central City over the course of the next year. And now that the floodgates have been opened following Kiara Madeira being cast as Spin, it looks like another will soon be added to the club.

As it turns out, the next evildoer in town has been around since the Golden Age, yet hasn’t received too much exposure outside of the comics – barring the animated series The Batman, of course. In case you’re wondering, it’s Rag Doll whom we’re here to discuss today.

It Chapter Two Begins Production – Stars Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy

Back to Derry with these Losers. #ITMovie

— It Movie (@ITMovieOfficial) July 2, 2018

Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s “It Chapter Two,” director Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “It,” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, “It” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest grossing horror film of all time.

Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise. James McAvoy stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s “Mary Kills People”) as Ben,

Check Out The Self-Directed Music Video For Rudy Mancuso’s First Solo Single, “Mama”

The multi-talented YouTube star Rudy Mancuso is continuing his musical foray with "Mama" -- the third single from his forthcoming album, and the first song that he has released from the project without a collaborator. Previously, Mancuso teamed with girlfriend Maia Mitchell and noted writer/performer Poo Bear on singles "Magic" and "Black & White," respectively.

In "Mama," Mancuso reflects on life lessons learned as a result of succumbing to temptation. The music video is surreal and sad, with Mancuso dancing alongside a fleet of animal mascots who attempt to lure him toward the very vices that his mother warns against, like drinking and smoking. He also gets repeatedly slapped in the face in a bid to jar him out of these unhealthy patterns.

Jessica Chastain Joined ‘It: Chapter Two’ Because She’s a Stephen King Fan Who Loves How Horror ‘Empowers Women’

Jessica Chastain Joined ‘It: Chapter Two’ Because She’s a Stephen King Fan Who Loves How Horror ‘Empowers Women’
It was the kind of casting that seems preordained: When Jessica Chastain was officially tapped in February to play the adult Beverly Marsh in the much-anticipated horror sequel “It: Chapter Two,” the news came only after months of fans dream casting the redhead for the role, drumming up enough chatter that Chastain herself happily admitted to wanting the role in November of last year. The chance to take on the part of grown up Beverly (played by Sophia Lillis in the 2017 horror hit) also appealed to Chastain because it would reunite her with two of her favorite collaborators: director Andy Muschietti and his producer sister Barbara Muschietti.

But that wasn’t the only element that spoke to her. Like plenty of other genre fans, Chastain grew up reading Stephen King’s books and watching the movies they inspired, even if she was perhaps a smidge too young to dip into his brand of terror.

Law & Order: Svu Season 19 Episode 21 Review: Mama

I'm a sucker for a good love story.

It was only a small part of the plot of  Law & Order: Svu Season 19 Episode 21, but Hal Linden's guest appearance broke my heart. He was hopelessly in love with a woman who first rejected him for her husband, then forgot him altogether because of dementia.

And then at the end of the hour, he came to the nursing home with flowers and Maddie finally remembered his name, bringing tears to my eyes.

I'm grateful that these two people got somewhat of a happy ending rather than some bizarre twist in which he turned out to have raped her.

"Mama" wasn't really about the love story between Maddie and Leonard Maxwell, of course. That was just a sideline.

In some ways, the case was a subplot too. The real story here was the way elderly people in nursing homes are treated. 

These women,

George Clooney Had Dad Jokes at Met Gala, Quipped Twins Were Underneath Amal Clooney's Dress

He has dad jokes! According to Page Six, George Clooney was overheard at the Met Gala on Monday, May 7, joking that his twins were underneath his wife Amal Clooney's enormous dress. He was kidding, obviously, because no one at the event was lucky enough to meet their son and daughter! The lawyer stepped out in a Richard Quinn rose-covered gown with pants underneath alongside her hubby, who looked dapper in a black tuxedo with a white shirt and black bowtie. The duo previously welcomed their twins, Alexander and Ella, 11 months, in June 2017. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) In a previous interview, Amal gushed about their kids' first words. "We’ve had some 'Mamas' and 'Dadas,'" she shared with Vogue. "George was very careful to ensure that 'Mama' was the first word." Too funny! George and Amal previously tied the knot in September 2014, and both are still smitten

It 2 Will Be Scarier and More Intense Promises Director
It 2 is going to be even scarier than the first movie. It arrive in theaters last fall and, though a great many people were excited about a big screen adaptation of Stephen King's beloved novel, the movie caught virtually everyone by surprise. While the movie was quite scary, it also worked in a lot of humor and heart for good measure, which helped make it appealing to a very wide audience. Now, director Andy Muschietti is teasing a very different kind of experience for the upcoming second installment.

Warner Bros. recently presented at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and, unsurprisingly, one of the projects they teased during their presentation was It: Chapter 2. During the presentation, he promised that the movie is "going to be scarier and more intense," than the first one. He even went so far as to warn moviegoers to, "bring your adult diapers."
