During a recent interview actor Sam Neill spoke out about whether or not he'd be returning as Dr. Alan Grant for Jurassic World if given the opportunity. Fans hoping for a resounding 'YES' to that question are in for a disappointment.
"Look, you never say no," Neill answered. "I think there’s a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that’s great. As I said, I’d never say no, but I wish them… well, I’m sure it’s going to be great, but they don’t need me."
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and Nick Robinson are in various stages of talks to star. Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) penned the script with Derek Connolly and will direct the film. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known that Robinson would play Simpkins’ older brother.
Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Pat Crowley will produce Jurassic World, which is set to begin filming in early 2014. The dinosaurs will hit theaters June 12, 2015.

Well, it was inevitable, right? Anytime something gets incredibly popular, there's always a spoof waiting in the wings somewhere. That being said, are you cats ready to sink your teeth into Walking with the Dead?
According to Coming Soon, Jacqui Holland (Stretch, My Best Friend's Girl), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), Joey Oglesby (Fruitvale Station), Sophia Ali (The Longshots), and Tim Ogletree (Supernatural Activity) have joined the cast of the flick, a spoof of AMC's popular series "The Walking Dead."
The project, currently filming in San Antonio, Texas, is based on an original script by Ogletree and directed by Scott Dow. It's described as follows:
A month into the zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors, including four who "for safety reasons" go by the names of their favorite cities--Green Bay, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Harlem; a sheriff fresh off a nice, relaxing six-week coma; his small-business-owner 10-year-old son; and a voiceover-prone zombie who has convinced the group that he's not dead, just a little slow, are forced from the safety of their mall-camp in hopes of finding a rumored safe haven.

The new flick from Rammbock director Marvin Kren, Blood Glacier (aka The Station), will be hitting DVD across the pond on January 20, 2014, and right now we've got a a new clip for you to dig on that may just have you losing your lunch.
Kren's new film stars Michael Fuith, Edita Malovcic, and Brigitte Kren.
Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the Alps. He is a loner; the regularly changing scientists who share the rocky idyll with him are just tolerated by him. Making things more difficult is the approaching visit of the environment minister, which brings rivalries at the station to the boil.
So everyone involved is grateful when their barren routine is interrupted by a strange discovery. A red liquid pours from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust shrinking with climate change. This “glacier blood” turns out to be a very special juice, with unimagined effects on the local animals.
Soon Janek has his hands full defending himself and the station against a growing horde of monstrosities: biological ones lurking outside, human ones inside. And as if all that wasn’t already dangerous enough, his heart also threatens to break: Among the minister’s entourage is Tanja, who is the only one who knows the reason for Janek’s self-chosen isolation…
Apparently the powers-that-be at 20th Century Fox are planning ahead because they've just secured Matt Reeves for the third of the new Planet of the Apes films, which will follow the upcoming flick Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Read on for more.
According to Deadline, right after 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment began screening his cut of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, they signed Matt Reeves to direct the third installment of the franchise.
This time he will write the script with Mark Bomback, who scripted the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which grossed $482 million worldwide in 2011. The directing deal is done, and the writer deals are being worked out right now. It is likely that Reeves will go right into the third film, a priority for the studio.
Look for Dawn in theatres on July 11th, 2014. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smith-Mcphee, Enrique Muriciano, and Kirk Acevedo.

They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

In addition, Bloody Disgusting got hold of a new infographic that pins up some character information and highlights the characteristics of a serial killer. Check it out below as well, and to see a bigger version, be sure to click the above link.
The acclaimed thriller starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy will unveil "Resurrection," a special preview episode, on Sunday, January 19th, immediately after the "NFC Championship Game" (live, 6:00 PM-CC ET), kicking off 15 heart-pounding weeks of uninterrupted episodes.
The Season 2 premiere of "The Following" will air Monday, January 27th (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following an encore of the preview (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
"The Following" Season 2:
Created by Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the Scream franchise) and starring Golden Globe Award-winning actor Kevin Bacon (X-Men: The Last Stand, Frost/Nixon) and James Purefoy (“Rome”), Season 2 will catch up with RYAN HARDY (Bacon) one year later in the wake of an horrific new murder spree. The FBI calls on Ryan and MIKE WESTON (Shawn Ashmore) to speak with the lone survivor, LILY (Connie Nielsen; “Boss,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), in order to help them solve the case. Ryan is reluctant to re-engage with the FBI but finds a valuable ally in his niece, MAX (Jessica Stroup, “90210”), an NYPD cop working in the Intel Division.
As the investigation proceeds, Ryan crosses paths with several complicated individuals, including LUKE (Sam Underwood, “Dexter”) and MANDY LANG (Tiffany Boone, Beautiful Creatures), which furthers his suspicion that JOE CARROLL's (Purefoy) reign of terror is far from over.
Valorie Curry returns as EMMA. Other new faces joining the show this year include Valerie Cruz as an NYPD cop who works closely with Mike Weston, James McDaniel as an FBI agent, Keith Carradine as a friend of Ryan, Jacinda Barrett as Julia, a disarming and alluring woman with mysterious intentions, and Lee Tergesen as Kurt Bolen, a seemingly normal family man who may harbor a dark secret.
Whether you're looking to load up those flashy new Kindles you got for Christmas or spend some of that gift card credit, you're going to want to take note that Adam Cesare has a new novel out today, and it's netting him some of the best reviews of his career.
Welcome to Mission, Massachusetts. Praying won’t save you, but it couldn't hurt.
Claire is an alternative girl looking for an alternative. Her post-college prospects have fizzled, and she’s looking for a new job, a new town, a whole new life. A summer position at a remote hotel may be just what she needs.
Very soon, though, she begins to suspect the hotel may have decidedly sinister motives. At the same time she falls back into her old wild ways with the young people of the town, a radical group totally at odds with the sinister leaders of a local cult. Caught between two worlds, Claire has to plot her escape while spiraling deeper into a nightmare of ritual sacrifice and killer parties.
