Last Week in Horror News: April 12 to the 19th
Theatrical Trailers and Clips
- HALLOWEEN 2 – Clip from Entertainment Tonight.
- CREEK – Lionsgate has yet to pin a release date for Joel Schumacher’s Nazi experiments flick once titled TOWN CREEK.
Studio News and Attachments
- Fox Atomic Dies – Fox Atomic is, in all likelihood, getting folded back in to 20th Century Fox. How this alters plans for JENNIFER’S BODY or the hypothetical 28 MONTHS LATER is unclear.
- OFFSPRING – Ghost House Pictures picks up Jack Ketchum’s OFFSPRING, joins already acquired THE CHILDREN and SEVENTH MOON.
- DRAG ME TO HELL – Looks like Ghost House opted to release the PG-13 variant. Don’t blame ’em.
- ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE – Has a US theatrical date of July 17th, which is 361 days after the film’s release on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK; oh, and those discs are only $8 and $15, respectively. Despite having a region listing on the back, my Blu of MANDY LANE plays just fine in a PS3. This wait is ridiculous.
- THANKSGIVING – Eli Roth is currently pitching a deal to direct a more accessible disaster(ish) film for $80mil if the studio involved will also pay $5mil for a feature length do-up of the hit trailer.
- MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D – Lionsgate has no plans for a sequel, but has 30 minutes of deleted scenes and an alternate ending ready for the disc due in May.
- FRIDAY THE 13TH – Out on DVD and BRD June 16th.
- EYES OF LAURA MARS – Chris Fischer, writer of S. DARKO tells fans at Weekend of Horrors that he has writing duties on the John Carpenter remake.
Indie, Foreign and Random News
- HATCHET 2 – Adam Green says the sequel is happening likely next winter, but is unsure the extent of his involvement.
- I, FRANKENSTEIN – Classic monsters in a neo-noir mystery produced by Ryan Rotten of Shock and Robert Sanchez of IESB.net.
