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.
