More casting news has arrived for Terminator: Genesis, as THR is reporting that Byung-hun Lee, who played Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe movies, has signed up for action along with "Mad Men" actor Michael Gladis and Sandrine Holt ("House of Cards").

Schwarzenegger is back as the Terminator cyborg, and his older appearance will be explained. Dayo Okeniyi is playing the son of Miles Dyson, the Cyberdyne exec played by Joe Morton in Terminator: Judgement Day; the character was a little boy in that movie. Emilia Clarke is portraying Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney will be Kyle Reese, and Jason Clarke is John Connor.

Lee's (pictured) role is being kept quiet, but it's promised "to be a doozy."

The film has a July 1, 2015, release date.

Shooting begins soon in Louisiana.

'Betrayer' Review: Black, White, And Sporadically Red

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 19:41

Last year, a handful of former Monolith developers decided to do what so many other industry veterans are doing — including Zombie Studios (Daylight), The Astronauts (Ethan Carter), and Tangentlemen (Daedalus), among others — and leave the ridiculous world of AAA video game development to form a new studio focused on smaller scale titles. Blackpowder Games’ debut is the atmospheric first person shooter Betrayer, and its horror theme is fitting seeing as these guys helped bring us the original FEAR.

Blanc/Biehn Productions Set to Begin Production on Fetish Factory

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 19:10

Alrighty, kids! We're very proud to announce that our very own Staci Layne Wilson's latest film, Fetish Factory, is officially in production! Read on for casting along with all the details you need!

From the Press Release
Blanc/Biehn Productions, along with Lony Ruhmann as executive producer, will be going into production on Fetish Factory, written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson.

Imagine a wickedly saucy by invitation-only stage show and posh private peeps in which your every fantasy can come true, fulfilled by the likes of luscious ladies imitating the sex goddesses of yore: Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield, and Suzie Wong. Along with classic burlesque strip-teases and curio acts – a ventriloquist, a magician, and a whip-dancer – you are in for the night of your life at the Fetish Factory. That is, until your life is at stake when the apocalypse strikes! Once mild-mannered men become bloodthirsty zombies, and it’s up to the girls to defend themselves by any means – even if that means turning their bullet bras, garter belts, and spike-heels into deadly weapons.

Wilson is an award-winning filmmaker for her shorts and music videos. Fetish Factory marks her feature debut. “The story centers on pin-up vixens vs. bloodthirsty zombies and is set in post-apocalyptic Hollywood,” she said, “which is perfect for me, since my mom was a celebrated ‘nudie cutie’ model in the 1960s, I was born and raised in L.A., and I’m a lifelong horror movie fan.”

While the film is still in the final casting stages, Chase Williamson (pictured above; John Dies at the End) is set for the male lead. “Love the script, this movie’s going to be a total blast!” said Williamson. Also starring Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (The Victim, Wrong Cops, She Rises, Everly), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), Diane Ayala Goldner (The Collector), Emma Julia Jacobs (Hitchcock), Jesse Merlin (Re-Animator: The Musical), Ruben Pla (Big Ass Spider), and Morgan Peter Brown (Absentia). Montreal-based alternative model and fetish superstar The Richard and gorgeous go-go icon Jenimay Walker round out the cast. (More announcements coming soon!)

Producer/actress Jennifer Blanc-Biehn has known Wilson for years, but this is their first collaboration. “I am so excited to finally be working so closely with Staci. This is something we have been trying to make happen for quite some time now.”

Executive producer Ruhmann, who came up with the idea for the story and tapped Wilson to flesh it out (so to speak) with an original screenplay, said, “When I was a kid, these grainy, cleavage obsessed pin-up photos used to put me in another world. I want to see these mysterious, unattainable, naughty women of my adolescence come to life. I anticipate our film’s vibe being fun, humorous, ironic, visually pleasing, and lusty in a happy way.”

“After I read the script, I just couldn’t stop smiling. There is so much love created here in Fetish Factory for all... That is the best of beauty and horror,” said The Richard, who will be working with Wilson for the first time.

Goldner, on the other hand, is a veteran, having appeared in most of the director’s short films. “Having worked with Staci several times, I consider her a master of imagery. Her script integrates her favorite things: pin-ups and monsters. My character is bawdy, sexy and in charge - I can sink my teeth into that!”

Jesse Merlin, who plays a makeup-mad character dubbed Lipstick, said, “Super-thrilled and delighted to fight zombies as a suave, gentlemanly pervert. Facing down a ravenous horde in immaculate ladies’ makeup marks a new personal high in badassery. Having been decapitated as Dr. Hill in Re-Animator: The Musical 170 times, I've always been on the other side of the zombie barricade. Until now.”

Pla, who plays a character called Whipping Boy, added, “I am so looking forward to being whipped into shape.”

Cinematographer Steve Romano, whose credits include Blanc/Biehn Productions' She Rises, The Night Visitor, and Altered Perception, has also shot sexy music videos for Beyonce (“Rocket”), Vassy (“Beautiful”), and many more. “Steve appreciates female beauty, and his work shows that in every frame. I can’t wait to work with him on bringing our lovely ladies to life… and our zombies to their grisly deaths,” said Wilson.

Mars Homeworld will be doing the original score. “As a musician who often feels completely uninterested with whatever the cinema music d'jour is,” he said, “I am truly excited by this opportunity to delve into those retro-racy, superphonic, swinging musical influences of yesteryear to bring the Fetish Factory score alive. A little old, a little new; I get to pull out the vintage gear and pretend I'm Les Baxter as re-sampled by Trent Reznor. Too cool.”

Fetish Factory is a thrilling and sensual horror suspense film with a heaping helping of vintage burlesque bawdiness. Production begins in May 2014.

NBC Gives a Series Order to Aquarius Starring David Duchovny

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 18:11

For those of us wondering what David Duchovny will be doing once his Showtime series "Californication" comes to an end, the answer has come today; and it involves NBC and Charles Manson! Read on for the details.

NBC has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order for the drama “Aquarius,” starring two-time Golden Globe Award winner David Duchovny in his return to broadcast television.

In this gripping drama series set in the late 1960s, Duchovny stars as a Los Angeles police sergeant with a complicated personal life who starts tracking a small-time criminal and budding cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his “cause.” The name of that man is Charles Manson. The twists and turns of a complicated undercover operation will lead Duchovny’s character and his young partner to the brink of Manson’s crimes that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders in subsequent seasons.

Writer John McNamara (“In Plain Sight,” “Profit”) will executive produce with Duchovny, Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break,” “Last Man Standing”), and Melanie Greene.

“Event series are a big priority for us, and the combination of a show that charts the lead-up to the Manson murders, along with a television star of the magnitude of David Duchovny, is the very definition of an event,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to be working with these talented producers, including Marty Adelstein and creator John McNamara, to present something truly original.”

“After being involved in the production of both ‘The X-Files’ and ‘Californication,’ it gives me great pleasure to work with David Duchovny for the third time on this compelling drama,” added Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “I’m especially pleased that he wanted to come to NBC, where I know there is a big audience waiting to see him.”

Added Duchovny: “I’m thrilled to be working with Bob Greenblatt again and coming back to broadcast television. I think ‘Aquarius’ has a chance to be a special show, and I can’t wait to get going.”

Duchovny is a TV veteran who had a recurring role on the hit show “Twin Peaks” before co-starring for nine seasons as Fox Mulder in the iconic series “The X-Files” with Gillian Anderson. In April he will begin his seventh (and last) season on Showtime’s comedy “Californication.”

“Aquarius” is produced by ITV Studios America in association with Marty Adelstein Productions.

[TV] David Duchovny Hunts Charles Manson In "Aquarius"

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 18:07

While Rob Zombie and Bret Easton Ellis develop their own network Charles Manson drama at FOX, NBC has already beat them to the punch…

According to Variety, “X-Files” and “Californicaion” vet David Duchovny will star in a period NBC drama as “a police detective on the trail of the Los Angeles-area hippie cult leader who turns out to be Charles Manson.

NBC has given a 13-episode straight-to-series order to “Aquarius,” penned by drama vet John McNamara (“In Plain Sight,” “Profit”) who exec produces with Duchovny, Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”) and Duchovny’s longtime manager Melanie Greene. “Aquarius” hails from ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein Prods.

In “Aquarius,” Duchovny will play a Los Angeles police sergeant with a complicated personal life. In the late 1960s, he and his younger partner begin tracking a small-time criminal who specializes in luring vulnerable young women to his “cause.”

The plan is that the series will follow “the twists and turns” of Manson’s early efforts, but the horrific murder spree in August 1969 that made his name synonymous with evil will not enter the story until subsequent seasons.

There Are Only Lovers Left Alive in this New Clip!

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 17:19

On tap right now is another new clip from Jim Jarmusch's vampire tale Only Lovers Left Alive (review). Check it out, and rest assured that as soon as more comes our way, we'll pass it on to you cats!

For more info on the film, visit the official Only Lovers Left Alive website on Tumblr, and check out Only Lovers Left Alive on Facebook!

Look for it in theaters on April 11th

Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton as Eve and Tom Hiddleston as Adam.

Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance but still retain their innate wildness.

Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization’s decline and worries about future survival. Eve, who is perhaps 3,000 years old to Adam’s 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.

As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals, or they will perish. Eve’s close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare’s plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price.

Adam and Eve’s precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree and uncontrollable little sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam.

Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

New Writer Comes Aboard Vin Diesel's The Last Witch Hunter

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 17:12

Some quick news is coming in regarding the latest genre offering from Vin Diesel, The Last Witch Hunter. Dallas Buyers Club writer Melisa Wallack has been hired to polish up the script for Summit Entertainment.

Mark Canton is producing via his Mark Canton Productions banner along with Bernie Goldmann and Diesel via his One Race Entertainment banner. Erik Feig, Geoff Shaevitz and Matthew Janzen will oversee the project for the studio.

Five hundred years ago, war raged between humankind and witches, vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe, including Kaulder (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay an all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments before her death, the Queen exacted her revenge by cursing Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Kaulder has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones.

Today, he is the only one of his kind–-the last witch hunter. With the help of Father Dolan, a Catholic priest, and a mystical arsenal hidden beneath New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, he continues to pursue the renegades and outlaws who endanger humanity. Chief among their adversaries is Belial, a powerful rebel witch who Kaulder believes has found a way to restore the Queen Witch to power and reignite her campaign to destroy the human world.

With the help of Chloe, a goodhearted young witch, Kaulder sets out to stop Belial before he can set his plan in motion, but allies in unexpected places keep the evil witch one step ahead in a cunning cat-and-mouse pursuit that will determine the survival of the human race.

More soon!

'Metro' Series Coming To Next-Gen In 'Metro Redux'

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:47

After a leak teased it, Deep Silver has confirmed in a letter to their fans that Metro Redux is indeed a real thing, they’re just not ready to share details about it with us yet. They promise we’ll know more about developer 4A Games’ first next-gen project by E3 in June, so that leaves us with only a few months to wonder what it could be. It could be a bundle of remastered ports of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, or it could be something a little more exciting. Their letter hints at it being more of the latter.

“Is Metro Redux real? Yes. We never made any secret of 4A’s desire to bring Metro to the latest generation of console hardware,” the company wrote. However, it sounds as if the real thing is significantly more exciting than a couple of remastered games.

“We think the reality is a lot more exciting than the outdated material that got leaked shows, and we’re itching to share it with you. Just not yet,” the company added.

So Deep Silver isn’t ready to show us what 4A is working on. I’m all right with that. What would you like it to be?

Lawsuit Conjured Up Against Conjuring Sequels

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:46

Never mind ghosts, demons, and demonic possessions! Wanna know what's really scary? Lawyers! A team of which have just swooped in to try to put a stop to any and all sequels to the James Wan mega hit The Conjuring.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. and New Line have been hit with a copyright lawsuit seeking to block production of sequels.

The suit, filed Friday by Evergreen Media Group and Tony Derosa-Grund in federal court in Houston, alleges theft of the underlying rights to the case files of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. For its part, Warner said that the suit is “improper” and noted that New Line filed a claim against Evergreen last year over rights to a “Conjuring” TV series that has gone to arbitration.

New Line has been and is vigorously defending itself against these spurious claims in a binding arbitration proceeding in Los Angeles, and therefore the Texas filing is both procedurally and substantively improper,” the studio said.

New Line has set its Conjuring sequel for a pre-Halloween release on October 23, 2015, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning to star. The yet-to-be titled sequel does not have a director yet.

New Line has already started filming Annabelle, a spin-off based on the possessed doll introduced in The Conjuring.

Evergreen Media said in the new suit that New Line was only granted rights on less than 1% of the case files of the Warrens’ stories in exchange for a purchase price for each theatrical production as well as crediting and employing DeRosa-Grund as producer.

Plaintiffs and New Line successfully developed and produced a hit theatrical motion picture entitled ‘The Conjuring’ based on one of the selected case files,” the suit said. “Defendants, however, now seek to reap all of the profits from ‘The Conjuring’ while denying their financial obligations and failing to pay any profits to Plaintiffs.”

New Line has acted in bad faith and breached its agreement with Plaintiffs by, among other things, failing to pay for the underlying rights and stealing those rights to make additional films, both theatrical films covered by the agreements as well as direct-to-video films that are not covered by the agreements, without compensating Plaintiffs or including Mr. DeRose-Grund as producer.

The suit also alleges that Warner and New Line have refused to pay Evergreen the 5% profit participation that it’s due for The Conjuring under the producer agreement.

Additionally, the suit asserts that because of the dispute over the TV rights, Lionsgate has withdrawn from a proposed “Conjuring” TV series with Evergreen.

As a direct consequence of Defendants’ deliberate actions and interference, Evergreen is unable to collect the compensation owed under its agreement with Lionsgate and has suffered monetary damages that reach well into the millions of dollars,” it said.

The lawsuit alleges that Warner Bros. has committed a breach of contract, a breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, tortious interference, fraud in the inducement, promissory estoppel, and conversion. The plaintiffs are seeking damages including the studio’s profits and revenue.

This past weekend the Emerald City Comicon took place in Seattle, and while the horror news coming out of it was pretty light, we do have word on a new series heading our way from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, and Dark Horse entitled Baltimore: The Witch of Harju.

From the Press Release:
Eisner Award–winning horror master Mike Mignola and #1 New York Times best-selling author Christopher Golden present a new comics series featuring the world’s greatest monster hunter, Lord Henry Baltimore, in Baltimore: The Witch of Harju.

In his newest adventure, fresh off a showdown in London, Baltimore shelters a woman on the run from a possessed dead man and the witch playing his puppet master.

This three-issue miniseries from writers Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, with Eisner Award–winning colorist Dave Stewart, will feature the artwork of Peter Bergting (The Portent: Ashes, Domovoi). Writer/artist Bergting has written young adult novels in both Swedish and English and numerous short stories, reviews, and editorials. He has been published in the US, Sweden, Norway, Spain, France, Germany, Denmark, and Italy.

Baltimore: The Witch of Harju Issue #1 goes on sale in comic shops July 30th.
