It's 4/20, kids! I forgot what I was going to write here.

Well it's official folks. Francis Lawrence, the guy who directed "I Am legend" has been selected by the folks at Lionsgate to direct "Catching Fire", the much anticipated second film in the "The Hunger Games" series. This squashes the rumor that David Cronenberg might be taking on the task. I guess it also kills any dreams I had of directing it too.

Genre supervet David S. Goyer is currently on the hunt for a writer to pen the script of his new supernatural thriller. He's teaming up with David Linde’s Lava Bear for the joint which he hopes to begin rolling on in the near future. At least I assume he hopes. Honestly there's not much info here and I'm just trying to keep you interested. Want me to show you some cleavage?

I have never seen Chan-wook Park's "Old Boy". I'm sorry. I've also never heard of the 2005 French film "The Ax". So I can't even begin to explain how excited I am not that Chan-wook Park is doing a remake of "The Ax". The film is about a young chap who's out of work and decided to do away with his competition. Sounds like a real, cut up... haha get it!? Cause of the ax reference. Man I'm on today.

Good news hot pockets. Both Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson will reprise their roles in the upcoming "Sin City" sequel currently titled "Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For". If I remember right Rosario Dawson had a small role as a hooker right? Who lived in Hooker Town? I wonder what she's been up to this whole time. I hope she's the mayor of Hooker Town. She's earned it.

A Delaware man is in hot water after being arrested for dropping a deuce on people's lawns for close to a year now. I have no idea why it took people a year to catch the guy. Isn't Delaware about the size of 3 square city blocks? There's about 14 people living there. What the hell is wrong with these people?

And here's a story about a veterinary student who's in trouble for having sex with a horse. As if there's any other reason people go to veterinary school.

Snapshot: Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock

Anthony Hopkins is gearing up to play Alfred Hitchcock and from the looks of things so far, he is spot on. Production on the film began just last week and the above snapshot has already been making its rounds. Well done, sir, well done. "Hitchcock," about the making of Psycho, also stars Helen Mirren as Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville; Jessica Biel as actress Vera Miles; Scarlett Johansson as actress Janet Leigh; and James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins.

The Voice of a Firefight - Interview with Blackguard's Paul "Ablaze" Zinay

As a band, Blackguard is a lot of things to a lot of people. Symphonic metal. Power metal. Folk metal. Death metal. A band that knows how to raise the rafters, bring down the house and entertain the multitudes. A band that puts on the same show, gives every effort, for forty or four thousand. The public face of this non-stop touring train is Paul "Ablaze" Zinay, lyricist, vocalist, frontman extraordinaire, who beneath all the intense metal carousing is a man with a gregarious personality and an easy smile. He and I sat down just a couple hours before he and Blackguard would take the stage to talk music, his native Canada, the nature of subgenres, where the band has come from and where they're going next.
M. DREW: Begin at the beginning – You’ve had an awful long road to get where you are. The band toiled for a number of years and then you had your first-release in 2007, your first big release in ’08 and now your current release. What’s it been like?

Album Review: Cancer Bats - "Dead Set on Living"

The time-tested axiom holds that a person, by proxy a leopard, cannot change his or her spots. The jaws of this seemingly ironclad tenet have firmly clenched themselves around the world of music, backed up by a fervent fan base who reliably and predictably ridicules a band that attempts to do so.

Horror Headlines: Thursday, April 19th, 2011

Jamie King kind of looks like a grown up Emma Stone yet for some strange reason I don't dislike her. I don't care how long ago that "Superbad" movie came out I will hate everyone who was in it till the day I die. I'm telling you all this because King has been confirmed to be joining the cast of the upcoming "Silent Night" remake. I have no problem with that either. So just to keep track I dislike everyone from "Superbad", have no problem with King or the remake, and the news is still very much incoherent.

Rupert Wyatt, the cat that brought us "Rise of the Planet Of the Apes" is teaming up with Charlize Theron for a new sci-fi flick titled "Agent 13". The plot of the film is currently under wraps but I can tell you that I dislike every person in this post. I mean I use to like Charlize Theron but then I saw her on Letterman and it turns out she's really annoying and kind of a prick. So now I don't. I've said too much now.

Well suck me dry and call me dusty because it looks like "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" is getting a wide theatrical release on October 26, 2012 thanks (?) to the good people at Open Road Films. I've never seen the first "Silent Hill" movie so I have no opinion on it. Let's just say I dislike it though for consistency.

Because there isn't enough sex appeal in today's news here's the trailer for "Robin Hood - Ghosts of Sherwood 3D" which stars Kane Hodder and Tom Savini. Try to guess which one plays Robin Hood. Just try. Here's a hint, he should have done the role in a speedo. Tick tock mutha trucka.

In Real People News: 

Wait it's illegal to spray paint a dog's face now? Man what fun CAN you have these days?

Yup, it's a story about a man who attacked his wife with a box of Cheez-It crackers and yup it happened in Florida. I know I've used this joke before. It's still funny.
