Variety has announced this morning that a sequel to the Korean film "The Host" has been greenlit, and it will be shot in China (and Chinese). This is a departure of course from the original, which was shot in Korea(n). The article also talks about the dance that a filmmaker in China must do in order to not fall afoul of Chinese censors. Pretty interesting story that we'll definitely stay on top of.

Official "Deathrace" poster. The film from Paul W.S. Anderson hits everywhere August 22nd.

The lineup for the Fantasia Filmfest has been announced, and as usual, it's jampacked with horror stuff. Kind of makes me wish I still lived up North (it takes place in Montreal). The fest will take place in July.

August 14th, 2009 is the official release date for "Final Destination 4", in 3D. I'm guessing lots of people will die in wacky ways and stuff will fly at the audience. You may think I'm being sarcastic but that actually sounds pretty amazing.

So if you're looking forward to "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" like most of us are (good reviews + nonsensical shelving = excitement), than you might have another option. A DVD of the film will be released in the UK on July 21st, as well as a BluRay version. And don't worry about formatting, because most modern computers will play just about anything you throw into them so you should be able to check it out. I say screw whoever is holding the film back in the states, let's import!

It looks like a "Cloverfield" sequel may be on hold, at least for now. Probably a good idea to let the idea sit for a while, even though the first one was so kickass.

Most of us love comic books. Who doesn't love FREE comic books?

Warren Ellis, scribe of many comic classics such as "Transmetropolitan" and "Planetary" joins forces with Avatar Press and artist Paul Duffield to bring us this weekly updated free comic in the post apocalyptic land of future London's Whitechapel district.

I promised to post a follow up to Shelton's post about MUTO almost a month ago and I finally got around to it.

Sweet "Final Destination 4" behind the scenes video, featuring some stuntwork being done for the race car crash that will (presumably) start the film out. FD4 will be made in 3D and be released later this year or early next.

It turns out that the wait for "My Name is Bruce", Bruce Campbell's "Three Amigos" type film about him being mistaken for a monster slayer, was all for a good cause. Apparently, the studio gave them more money to "beef" up the film, so that it can go theatrical. No word on how wide yet, but this does mean that at least some of you will get to see it in the theater so, good news all around.

Behind the scenes pictures from "Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds". And yes, they still hold the award for best upcoming title. The film will follow a few survivors of the previous film (as well as a few non-survivors, odd enough) who manage to get to a nearby town where they're tracked down by the beasts from the first film. It will star Jenny Wade, Krista Allen, Judah Friedlander, Clu Gulager, Martin Klebba, Tom Gulager, and Diane Goldner.

News on "Alice" today, the adaptation of American Mcgee's (now) old school video game, and shocker (!) it's not good. The film is at a "turnaround" after being dumped by Universal Studios. They have a "very compelling script" that is now looking for a new home, and both Marcus Nispel and Sarah Michelle Gellar are no longer involved. If there's a comparable term in the movie industry to "Vapor Ware", I think it's time to start using it in this case.

First 1-sheet poster for "Quarantine", and it looks as generic and not interesting as the movie itself. Just my opinion people, don't shoot me!

HARD ROCK ZOMBIES

Everyone has that pothead friend who, when he puffs some chronic, goes off on rambling tangents, describing ideas that he has movies that have no chance of ever being filmed, although, secretly, you wish that they would. It seems that from one of these THC-soaked diatribes that the wonderfully transcendent Hard Rock Zombies must have come from; it’s so utterly bizarre and unintentionally hilarious that someone must have been smoking something as they sat at the typewriter.
