Last Week in Horror News: June 14th to the 21st.

Posted by Peter Hall - June 21st 2009 @ 4:39 pm

Theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • ZOMBIELAND – Naturally a US answer to SHAUN OF THE DEAD would feature a ton of hi-def slo-mo.
  • THE STEPFATHER – From the considerate minds behind PROM NIGHT 2009.
  • 2012 – Ahhh how I love you Roland Emmerich.
  • THIRST – US Red Band trailer.

Studio News and Attachments

  • 25/8 – Wes Craven was done filming his new slasher.  Not anymore.
  • SCREAM 4 – According to Kevin Williamson’s Twitter account, Neve Campbell does not want to do another SCREAM.  Guess she’s too busy.
  • BOO U – DreamWorks has several animated ghost flicks on its slate, the newest of which is about a haunter who has lost his touch and must go back to school in order to learn the ways of the spook.
  • THE WARD – John Carpenter has cast F13 ’09′s Danielle Panabaker in his return to feature films.
  • THE HAUNTING IN GEORGIA – Ti West will direct the unrelated sequel to Gold Circle Films’ money maker THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT.

Remakes

  • TEEN WOLF – Warner Brothers is seeking someone to write a remake.  I doubt Michael J. Fox will be doing a cameo.
  • HALLOWEEN 2 – I never thought I’d admit it, but I really dig this H2 poster, though I’m not sure there is anything attached to that tuft of hair homeless Mike is clutching.
  • BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN – I guess with Guillermo del Toro poised to make FRANKENSTEIN relevant to mass audiences once again it only makes sense that Universal would put out feelers for a BRIDE cash-in.

Indie, Foreign and Random News

  • BLACK SWAN – Darren Aronofsky’s next film will not be a ROBOCOP remake, instead the auteur is opting for a haunted ballerina story staring Natalie Portman.
  • THE COLLECTOR – Marcus Dunstan’s directorial debut has a wide release set for July 31st according to the official site.  I’ve heard good things about it, but seems stupid for Freestyle Releasing to go up against THIRST…
  • JENNIFER’S BODY – Megan Fox reveals a bit more of the plot to Diablo Cody’s horror flick: Fox’ demonic possession takes place after “She gets improperly sacrificed by Adam Brody’s band, who have sold their souls to Satan in order to get a record deal”.
  • NIGHT OF THE CREEPS – Just a Flickr pool of pics from the Dekker and Cast reunion screening, though sadly I’m in none of them.
  • THE SHRINE – JACK BROOKS 2 is benched while director Jon Knautz directs THE SHRINE (originally titled THE CULT).

Non-theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • CHAW – Full Trailer.
  • DETOUR – Norway is starting to get big on slashers.
