  • SAW VII – Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are, of course, writing a seventh SAW movie.  A seventh SAW movie!!
  • WORLD WAR Z – J. Michael Straczynski’s screenplay for WORLD WAR Z is getting a rewrite from THE KINGDOM scribe Matthew Michael Carnahan, which I’m not so sure is a good sign since I recall Moriarty’s script review praising how Oscar worthy Straczynski’s was…
  • SCREAM 4 – Moves along with two Cox’ but no Campbell.
  • GRACE – Anchor Bay has picked up the much loved GRACE for a theatrical and DVD release!
  • RESIDENT EVIL 4 – Gets a bit more official with a start date and confirmation of Milla Jovovich’s return.
  • HACK/SLASH – Gets a new director, Fredik Bond, but still has Justin Marks writing the comic adaptation.
  • THE FLOCK – Prehistoric killer birds?  Game on!
  • CELL – Eli Roth is officially off of the project as it gets reborn in the form of a four hour miniseries.

Remakes

  • LET ME IN – International sales posters confirm the new, shorter title of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN.

  • SENSE AND SENSIBILTY AND SEA MONSTERS – Someone needs to drive a stake into the heart of this whole “tack on monsters to classic novels whose copyright has lapsed” genre.  It’s lazy writing.
  • HARPER’S ISLAND – The ‘slasher as a TV show’ experiment won’t be having a second season, which is a pity since it had some decent word of mouth.
  • DARK COUNTRY – I actually had a dream about this movie last night, I suppose because I went to sleep after watching Tom Jane in HUNG.  Weird.
  • THE WICKER TREE – Robin Hardy’s sequel to his THE WICKER MAN is already filming.
  • TERATOMA – Ryuhei Kitamara moves on to body horror after MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN.
  • THE SHORTCUT – I laugh at this awful idea of what horror movies should be.

Non-Theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • 12 BELLS – In which CUBE gets ripped off…
  • TRIANGLE – I’m hoping Christopher Smith’s latest film ends up getting a theatrical run in the states, but it isn’t confirmed at this point.
  • FRAYED – In which a homicidal son escapes an insane asylum…
  • STRIGOI – In which villagers comedically don’t know how to deal with a new vampire.

  • PANDORUM – I’ll watch anything on a spaceship.

Studio News and Attachments

  • WORLD WAR Z – After the seizure that was QUANTUM OF SOLACE I want director Marc Forster as far away from Max Brooks’ novel as possible.  My fears are being confirmed:  IGN found he’s still working on the script.  Last I recall Moriarty was praising J. Michael Straczynski’s script up and down.  Has the woeful tinkering begun?
  • THE HUNGER GAMES – Just got picked up for adaptation.  Never heard of it, but now I’ll be heading to Amazon to grab this tale of a future in which counties must pay tribute by way of offering boys and girls for a televised death match.
  • WELCOME TO HOXFORD – 1492 Entertainment picked up the IDW comic series about werewolves who run an insane asylum…
  • THE HORSEMEN – Remember that Platinum Dunes flick about the apocalypse?  No?  Well it starred Dennis Quaid and recieved a chupacabra-esque release last week.

Remakes

  • NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – Jackie Earle Haley is exchanging a few words with Platinum Dunes over possibly taking on our favorite oven toasted pedophile.  I’m not convinced we’re that lucky.
  • HELLRAISER – Pascal Laugier reveals that his first draft is in and that his HELLRAISER will be a reboot combination of Barker’s film and the original HELLBOUND HEART novella.
  • RE-ANIMATOR – Remember the news that there was a 3-D remake of Stuart Gordon’s classic in the wings?  Well its bullshit.
  • HEBERT WEST: THE SERIES – Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case with the O.C.ification of Lovecraft’s entire works.
  • MOTEL HELL – Steven C. Miller of AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION says he’s doing a remake of MOTEL HELL for MGM.

Indie, Foreign and Random News

  • THE REVENANT – I was indifferent to the story of an Iraq vet resurrecting with a blood lust Stateside, until this bit from the official site, “Bart will learn that he must eventually embrace the path of his own horrific destiny… all while cruising in a 1979 Camaro with a surfboard on the roof.” Now I don’t know whether to laugh or set a time machine to its release.
  • MEGA SHARK VERSUS GIANT OCTOPUS – Starring not only Lorenzo Lamas but Debbie Gibson.  Yes, that Debbie Gibson.
  • IT’S A WONDERFUL AFTERLIFE – Is not actually a scary version of IT’S A WONDERFUL life, rather a horromedy about a mother who kills off unsuitable suitors for her daughter.

Really?  I was gone for two weeks and not a single new theatrical trailer came out?  I must have missed something…
