Showtime has picked up the rights to "Chew", a new series they'll be putting out based on the comic book of the same name. The show will follow a federal agent who has psychic abilities based on the food he eats. I have absolutely no idea how that works but the idea that the twenty piece McNuggets I just had could predict the lotto numbers is blowing my mind.
"The Taint", "All About Evil" and "Kidnapped" have all been selected for this year's Tromadance Film Fest that will take place from April 22-23 in Asbury Park, NJ. Bill Plympton will also be premiering some new shorts at the event and I assume there's going to be some dancing. Probably a lot of dancing actually. Giant big semi-overweight dancing... Entry is free!
In what might be the most disappointing there I've seen this year there is a new red band trailer for "Nude Nuns with Big Guns" on the tubes. I say disappointing because red band implies there's going to be awesomeness that you can't show in a regular trailer, but this contains none of that. Oh sure there's some blood and I may of even seen a nip but there nothing that lives up to the movie's name. I'm crying right now as I type this.
In response to the rumors surrounding the sequel to "Deadgirl" writer Trent Haaga has taken to his blog to set the record straight. Haaga states that the not only are the rumors that he wrote a script where a group of women find the body of a dead boy are completely false and goes on to say that if a sequel does happen he won't be involved. Truth be told I thought Haaga started these rumors so now I'm completely confused. If you can't trust a guy who writes a movie about necrophilia than who can you trust?
In Real People News:
A 40 year old man in the UK has been arrested after he broke into a farm, covered himself in cow crap and then went to town on himself. And by that I mean he made love to himself. Although I can't imagine there was much love involved. The worst part? This isn't the first time he's been arrested for the cow doodie lovin.
A new movie is in production based on the book "Kong: King of Skull Island", a prequel to "King Kong" that was released around the time of Peter Jackson's 2006 adaptation. Apparently it deals with how the giant became "king" of Skull Island (I guess that's self explanatory). Not sure how the story works with a bunch of apes and dinosaurs, but I'm sure there are some annoying humans in there somewhere.
Poster for the indie "All About Evil", starring Natasha Lyonne, about a young woman who inherits her family's theater chain and brings it back to life with a series of "all too real" grisly, gory short films.
1870: Andrew Carr is hanged at Richmond Prison, Dublin. He is dropped from too high, causing his head to separate from the rest of his body -- the greater portion of which twitches for several minutes.
