  • THE DESCENT 2 – Trailer.  Gander it quick as it keeps getting yanked from YouTube.  Despite severely hating the first one, this looks like like a solid flick.

Studio News and Attachments

  • SUBTERRANEAN – Sean Hood has scored writing duties on Marcus Nispel’s next film, as explained by this amusing anecdote from the writer himself.  A plot set in an underground labyrinth of tunnels below NYC helps explain Nispel’s need for Jason to run around tunnels of his own.

  • JONAH HEX – Josh Brolin now vs. John Malkovich.

  • NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – Samuel Bayer, perhaps best known for creating the Smells Like Teen Spirit music video, will be calling the shots on Platinum Dunes’ next remake.
  • NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – If you believed that Lindsay Lohan was going to star in the reboot you are a sucker.
