First 'Scout' Prepares for Battle with the Undead!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 21:51

THR reports that Tye Sheridan, the actor who broke through playing opposite Matthew McConaughey in last year’s indie drama Mud, will battle the undead in his first major studio gig.

Says the site, the youngster has signed on for the lead role in Scouts vs. Zombies, Paramount’s horror comedy to be directed by Christopher Landon.

The story centers on three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town faces a zombie outbreak. Sheridan will play the budding honors student who is handsome and athletic but doesn’t know it yet, still lacking the confidence needed to talk to girls he likes.

Todd Garner, Andy Fickman, Betsy Sullenger and Bryan Brucks are producing the project, which is scheduled to begin shooting in May.

Jack Reher to Adapt Corrosion!

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 20:52

Just when you thought the news day was over... more comes rolling in! Good thing for you we don't eat, sleep, or have actual lives outside of the horror industry. We do, however, drink heavily whenever possible. In any event...

Variety is reporting that The Ring producer Mike Macari and Affirmative Entertainment’s Nicholas Bogner have optioned Jon Bassoff’s novel Corrosion and tapped Jack Reher to adapt the tome. We first told you about this back in September, but today it's official.

Corrosion is currently the number one selling noir novel on Amazon and revolves around a battle-scarred soldier making his way through the backwater towns of Colorado to get back to a woman, who might be his loved one or his next victim — or both. It is in the vein of Primal Fear, Se7en, and No Country for Old Men.

Production is set to start later this summer.

J.K. Simmons in Talks for Terminator: Genesis

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 19:42

The casting news, or should we say possible casting news, continues for the next installment in The Terminator film franchise as THR reports that the always great J.K. Simmons is in negotiations to join the cast of Terminator: Genesis from Skydance and Paramount.

The flick will thread together multiple ideas from the previous movies as it relaunches the story of a cyborg from a future where computers gained intelligence and waged war against mankind.

Emilia Clarke is playing Sarah Connor, the woman first saved by Kyle Reese, a fighter from the future and inadvertent father of future resistance leader John Connor. Jason Clarke (no relation to Emilia) is playing John Connor, while Jai Courtney will be playing Reese. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back as a Terminator -- whether he is good or bad remains to be seen.

According to sources, Simmons would play a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which, not coincidentally, is the year the original movie, directed by James Cameron, was released).

Terminator: Genesis begins filming soon in Louisiana under the direction of Alan Taylor (Thor 2) for a July 1, 2015, release.

Syfy Launching Event Series Ascension in November 2014

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 19:40

Syfy is reigniting the channel’s traditional long-form scripted programming event for 4th quarter 2014 with the greenlight of the 6-hour series "Ascension," it was announced today by Syfy President Dave Howe. Read on for the details.

From the Press Release:
"Ascension" is an ambitious original drama created and written by Philip Levens ("Smallville"), who will serve as executive producer and showrunner. The series will be produced in Montreal, QC, by Sea To Sky Studios in association with Blumhouse Productions.

Jason Blum (Stranded, "The River," film franchises Paranormal Activity and The Purge) and Mark Stern are executive producers on the project along with Ivan Fecan, Tim Gamble, and Brett Burlock on behalf of Sea To Sky Studios. The event series will be co-financed and distributed by Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television.

Said Howe, “Syfy is more committed than ever to bringing to life epic event television. We have a rich history in this arena, from Steven Spielberg’s ‘Taken’ to the highly acclaimed mini that launched the ‘Battlestar Galactica’ series to reimagined takes on classic tales such as ‘Alice’ and ‘Tin Man.’ In keeping with that grand tradition, we are delighted to bring this thrilling, provocative and intelligent event to our fans later this year.”

In 1963 the U.S. government launched a covert space mission, sending hundreds of men, women, and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

"Ascension" is slated to launch in November 2014 and air through December.

Said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President of Original Content, Syfy, “Phil Levens has crafted a bold and surprising spin on the space opera. We are equally excited to embark on this journey with our partners at UCP, Sea To Sky, Lionsgate, Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions, and also with Mark Stern, who shepherded this project while at Syfy.”

[SXSW '14 Interview] 'Starry Eyes' Cast and Crew On Film's Violence and Universe

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 18:57

Starry Eyes may be the film from SXSW I want to revisit the most. There’s so much going on in it that I have a feeling it will have very high replay value. I already dig the film (as you can see by my review), and I’m certainly looking forward to looking at it from a different angle.

This is even more true after sitting down for a lengthy interview with the filmmakers. Present at the table were directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, actors Alexandra Essoe and Pat Healy and producer Travis Stevens. It was easily a half hour chat and there’s no way I can even begin to share the bulk of it with you guys until after you’ve had a chance to see the movie. It literally took me a longer time to remove spoilers from the transcript than it did to type it out.

So what I’m going to do is share a very light, surface-y interview which should hopefully entice you even more to see the film. Then maybe its release I can share a bit more. Cool? Thanks. Check it out below.

For a movie about the downside of ambition, it’s a very ambitious film.

Kolsch: We’ve always been influenced by films by early Cronenberg and Possession and things like that. Rosemary’s Baby, obviously. Genre-wise we wanted to do something in the same vein. We wanted to start with a character and let the horror come out of there. Working in an industry where your body is such a commodity and you’re racing against the clock, it’s probably the most suited character for a body horror film.

And Alex your performance has so much going on in it.

Essoe: The audition process for actors is kind of unholy and masochistic. You kind of have to steel yourself and be thick skinned for the business side of acting but then for the actual acting side of it you have to be vulnerable.

Healy: The skin of a rhinoceros and the heart of a baby.

Essoe: Exactly. And that’s what I love so much about this film, you have to jump back and forth between those two things. And Sarah of course does not have thick skin, which makes her easily exploitable. It pushes her to a very destructive place, she approaches it with such naiveté and innocence that it’s sort of heartbreaking.

Widmyer: Which extends beyond acting as well. Sometimes as a filmmaker you feel like if you’re not currently writing at that moment, not trying to pitch something or not trying to meet somebody – you’re wasting your life. I go to coffee shops and I’ll pass by 10 laptops with screenplays open on them and you realize everyone is going for it and you’re not getting any younger. You feel like it’s a race. But if you feel that way too much, you might leave yourself susceptible to a bad decision.

Pat, your character surprised me. I thought that he was going to be a total sleazeball.

Healy: That was a really interesting thing that these guys wanted. What he does may be a joke or silly, but he’s sincere about it and has worked hard for it and believes in it. And he believes in trying to protect her and have her do the right thing. I didn’t want to play it joke-y, I wanted it do be sincere even though I personally might find those things kind of silly. And her friends too, they’re actually trying to help her.

I want to talk about the universe of the film. It feels big, even though you had limited means you have these colliding universes.

Widmyer: I think it’s smart to make your film go places. Kevin and I have done things in the past for low budgets where you’re sort of trapped. And we wanted this one to move. We wanted to show parts of LA you don’t normally see on film. The downtown areas, the smoggy hills, the construction and the graffiti of it all.

Essoe: And I think the tone changes very organically throughout the film. Nothing is added for the sake of variety.

There’s also some brutal shit in this movie.

Kolsch: We were telling a very Hollywood tale and so many of the other things I find interesting in Hollywood lore is the Hollywood violence. Like the Manson killings, the Wonderland killings. It’s just another part of Hollywood and celebrity killings – this use of brutal force. We wanted to make sure the kills sat in that same world of what desperate celebrities would do. You hear different takes on the Manson thing, like he still thought it was the house of the producer who wouldn’t put his album out. Or John Holmes with the people at Wonderland.

Widmyer: It had to be organic too. We weren’t purposefully trying to make people go “ugh.” We wanted the ending to feel like something you would read in Hollywood Babylon.

Per THR, “According to sources, Simmons will play a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which, not coincidentally, is the year the original movie, directed by James Cameron, was released).

Wolf Creek 2 US Release Details; New Artwork

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 18:21

Finally some news we've been waiting to arrive has come! On tap right now is the first information on Wolf Creek 2's Stateside release along with a brand new one-sheet. Read on for the details, and check it out!

Image Entertainment will be giving Wolf Creek 2 a VOD release on April 17th with a theatrical run set for May 16th!

Directed by Greg Mclean, written by Mclean and Aaron Sterns, and produced by Helen Leake (Swerve, Black and White, Heavens Burning), Greg Mclean, and Steve Topic (Crawlspace), the sequel started production seven years after the original Wolf Creek hit screens internationally in November of 2005.

The original not only gave Australian audiences an appetite for their own horror movies but showed the world a fresh, daring take on the genre. Selected to screen at Sundance and the Cannes Film Festival, it was supported by The Weinstein Company, who presented it to an international audience. It then went on to claim the title of the number one Australian film in 2005 and also became the highest grossing Australian R18+ film of all time.

Synopsis
Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes an horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet: Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white-knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

[Random Cool] Here's A Wicked Acoustic Cover Of Tool's "The Pot"

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 17:00

I don’t know how Sam Westphalen does it, but he keeps surprising me with his acoustic fingerstyle covers of metal tunes. Today he released a cover of Tool‘s “The Pot”, which is one of my favorite tracks from the band’s most recent release, 10,000 Days. It’s pretty incredible, especially when he plays Maynard’s vocals and also the guitar intro at the same time. The two conflicting melodies seem like they’d be truly difficult to perform simultaneously and Westphalen knocks it out with what looks like greatest of ease.

Head on below to check it out.

Kojima Would Like To Make A 'Silent Hill' Game

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 16:39

I feel like I’ve written that headline a few times now, but this time it’s real. Or, at least, it’s getting closer to becoming a reality.

As Hideo Kojima wraps up development on Metal Gear Solid V, many fans are left wondering what his next project will be. He’s mentioned his desire to step down from the Metal Gear series, which he created, more than a few times already, but it looks like this time he may actually go through with it. We know Konami has reached out to Kojima in the past about taking the reins on a future Silent Hill, and today, we just got one step closer to seeing that come to fruition.

During a Twitch Q&A held earlier today, Kojima chatted about Snake’s next adventure, the possibility of creating a mobile game, and yes, even the possibility of his having a hand in the inevitable next Silent Hill

When a fan asked him which Konami franchise he would like to direct or reboot if given the chance, Kojima replied, with a mischievous grin on his face, with two words: “Silent Hill.”

Then Geoff Keighley pushed him further regarding what he’d do with the franchise. That’s when things got interesting.

While Kojima admits there’s a problem in that he’s easily scared of many things — he and I have that in common, but that doesn’t stop me from losing it on our YouTube channel on a near-daily basis — he’s confident that that would only aid him in crafting something that is truly terrifying.

“I have no idea when I’ll be able to do this, but maybe some day in the future,” he added.

I am all for a Kojima-developed Silent Hill game, though I’d recommend he reads this first.

Come Face-to-Face with Danger in this Trailer for Enormous

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 15:24

The live-action pilot for an adaptation of Enormous, in which the world as we know it has ended, launches next Thursday (March 20th) on Machinima; and we have a look at its trailer and artwork right here.

The pilot/short film is based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel of the same name that launched last year. Written by Tim Daniel and drawn by Mehdi Cheggour, Enormous tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world in which massive insect-like beasts have taken over the world and humans are now the bottom of the food chain.

The creative minds of director BenDavid Grabinski (short film Cost of Living), writer Andre Ovredal (Trollhunter), and producer Adrian Askarieh (Hitman, Agent 47) are taking Enormous from the page to the screen.

You'll find the goods below plus synopses of both the film and the graphic novel. Be sure to check back in a week for the full video. After the pilot debuts, the plan is to turn Enormous into a full-fledged series that can play on various digital platforms the company appears on, including the new Xbox One.

Enormous Short Film Synopsis:
The film picks up years after E Day, the worldwide attack of massive insect like beasts, as the remaining humans from all walks of life must band together to survive and fight back against the monstrous invaders. Viewers are introduced to Ellen (Ceren Lee), a mother who has lost her child, and watch as she prepares to play a major role in the human resistance. The cast also includes Steve Braun (Wrong Turn 2) and Erica Gimpel ("Veronica Mars").

About the Enormous Graphic Novel:
Enormous tells the full tale of the aftermath of a vast ecological cataclysm which spawns colossal beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind stares down imminent extinction, and the only law is to hunt or be hunted. It’s survival of the biggest as the earth-shaking sci-fi action adventure continues.

As the last vestige of humankind spirals towards annihilation, Ellen Grace leads the only remaining North American Search & Recovery Team through the deadly giant monster-infested streets of Phoenix. However, she soon encounters another predator far more dangerous than the other-worldly creatures stalking the desolate city: her fellow humans.

Nitehawk Cinema - Killer Legends Preview SCREENS TONIGHT

Dread Central - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 15:05

Attention, New York! Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn has been developing its "Signature Series" program for some time, including revisiting the more mainstream ‘70s pornography for "Nitehawk Naughties", which will continue into the summer months.

Now, their "One Nite Only" series will highlight nine upcoming films including artist and music documentaries, re-releases and anniversaries, restorations and classic repertory films.

Tonight at 9:30 P.M. ET, Nitehawk presents a special One Nite Only screening of the new horror documentary Killer Legends in celebration of its upcoming March 16 premiere on the Chiller Network. The event includes a Q&A with filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills moderated by Fangoria’s Sam Zimmerman. If you enjoyed the documentary Cropsey from Zeman and are in or around Brooklyn this evening, Killer Legends looks to explore the true origins of urban legends on a much grander scale than the more intimate, personal exploration in Cropsey.

Killer Legends is a hair-raising film that focuses on four timeless urban legends that continue to haunt the psyche of the American public. This horror documentary follows filmmakers Joshua Zeman (Cropsey) and Rachel Mills as they investigate the true crimes that may have spawned these urban legends, while exploring how these myths evolved and why we continue to believe. The documentary probes the following legends: The Candyman, The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs, The Hookman, and The Killer Clown.

Killer Legends is produced by Gulp Pictures and Storyville Entertainment in association with Gigantic Pictures. Killer Legends premieres this Sunday, March 16th, at 8pm ET on the Chiller Network.

Invada Records (which is operated by Geoff Barrow of Portishead) has announced that they will be releasing a limited edition 2xLP neon pink vinyl soundtrack to the hit Ubisoft game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on Record Store Day (April 19th). The soundtrack was composed by Australian duo Power Glove and is a total throwback to the great soundtracks of the 80′s.

The artwork will be done by James White, who has done posters for Blade Runner and The Thing. Head below to listen to the brooding track “Power Core”.
