  • SPLICE – Warner Brother’s Dark Castle division will be putting out Vincenzo Natali’s well-buzzed sci-fi/horror hybrid SPLICE this June with a few alterations in place from its last screening at Sundance.
  • THE DARKEST HOUR – Timur Bekmambetov is producing an alien invasion flick for RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR director Chris Gorak to be shot in Russia but released in the US by Summit.
  • ALIEN PREQUEL – Guess how many dimensions the Ridley Scott-directed prequel (which is likely the first part of a new trilogy) is going to be shot in.
  • ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER – Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov will be producing an adaptation of the just-published novel by Seth Grahamme-Smith.

Remakes

  • THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER – Marcus Nispel is off the Dracula-at-sea project, replaced by COUNTERFEITERS director Stefan Ruzowitzky.
  • SOLOMON KANE – Producers of Michael J. Bassett’s solid bit of dark fantasy are hoping to use the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY “Demand it!” ideology.  Not sure it’s going to work, but the movie is worth the 40 seconds it’ll take you to fill it out for your city.
  • THE CHILD’S EYE – The Pang Brothers are doing a fourth entry in their popular EYE series.  Curious considering the first entry was, for a good while, my favorite Asian horror movie.
  • [REC] 2 – Since Sony has shown no plans of releasing it in the States any time soon, your best bet for (legally) seeing [REC] 2 is one of these import DVDs/Blu-rays.
  • THE BLACK WATERS OF ECHO POND – Poster and city list for its theatrical run.

  • MANDY LANE – Senator is finally going to release ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE (review) on July 17th?  I wouldn’t count on it.
  • SPLICE – Senator must be on a PR kick as they also slipped Bloody-Disgusting some photos from the upcoming Vincenzo Natali directed chimera-horror flick.  Pics look great, though if one commenter is to believed, the script is awful.
  • REPOSSESSION MAMBO – The Jude Law starring sci-fi tale of borrowed organs gets an R rating.

Remakes

  • FRIDAY THE 13TH 2 – How does BD surmise the headline, “FRIDAY THE 13TH Sequel Officially Announced” and then link to a source article that clearly states, “Insiders caution that there is no green light”.  We all know there is going to be a F132, but man, let’s wait until that “officially” means the same thing the dictionary says it does.
  • THE BIRDS – According to Brenna Roth, who is in talks for a role in the Platinum Dunes recash, THE BIRDS will be shot in 3-D.
  • TOTAL RECALL – Neal H. Moritz, yes the NHM curse of PROM NIGHT ’08, is allegedly bringing TOTAL RECALL back to the big screen his bank account.
  • SORORITY ROW 2 – Summit has yet to release the remake of THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW and already the sequel is on a word processor somewhere.

  • 100 FEET – The Sci-Fi channel will be premiering Eric Red’s impressive haunter (review) on April 26th.
