Last Week in Horror News: April 19th to the 26th

Posted by Peter Hall - April 26th 2009 @ 5:14 pm

Theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • CASE 39 – This Renee Zelwegger vehicle has been bounced around so many times I’m not positive it’ll ever end up theatrical.
  • H2 – Trailer for Zombie’s HALLOWEEN sequel looks even more unnecessary than his first go at running a treasure into the trailer park mud.

Studio News and Attachments

  • BIOSHOCK – Gore Verbinski’s adaptation of the wildly popular retrofuture first person shooter has been stonewalled by budget concerns.
  • ECLIPSE – David Slade, he of HARD CANDY and 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, will be directing the third installment of the TWILIGHT series.
  • 30 (more) DAYS OF NIGHT – Steve Niles tells MTV that a script has been turned in and that the lights are getting closer to green.
  • SILENT HILL 2 – Having not heard anything in what feels like a long time, I’d of assumed a sequel fell by the wayside, but now claims things have stopped entirely in an attempt to retool the haunter with a teen cast.
  • THE NYE INCIDENTS – Todd Lincoln, who still has HACK/SLASH on his bill, will be directing an alien abduction flick for Dark Castle.


  • NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – Kata Mara’s younger sister, Rooney Mara, will take on the role of Nancy.
  • PREDATORS – What I thought must be bullshit is now confirmed. Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios is producing a reboot of the intergalactic head hunter(s).

Indie, Foreign and Random News

  • BUBBA NOSFERATU – Ron Perelman thinks that he’ll be stepping into Bruce Campbell’s shoes for the role of Elvis this fall/winter.
  • THE WAR OF THE WORLDS PLUS BLOOD, GUTS AND ZOMBIES – Alright this insert zombies into classic literature malarkey is out of control, as evidenced by this forum post-cum-press release.
  • DANTE’S INFERNO – Game trailer looking great, except for the complete lack of gameplay.
  • THE STRAIN TRILOGY – In addition to having his name attached to every supernatural project of the next millennium, apparently Guillermo del Toro still has time to help write a trilogy of books.
  • THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL – Ti West, understandably, does not appreciate having producers excise scenes from his new movie.

    You know, I had somewhat high hopes for SH2. I thought if they fixed the errors of the first, it would have been really good. In the beginning the director of the first said he was aware of and wanted to fix the errors but then he dropped out of the project. I guess I’d rather have NO SH2 rather than some teen drama-gossip flick.

    Bioshock delayed? Oh please be cancelled, I never want that to see the light of DAY. After the abomination of Wolverine: Origins, I just would rather have nothing than a bucket of shit. Not worth it anymore, even if some people pirate the shit out of movies and aren’t forced to pay :-)
