New "Whiteout" still, from the thriller starring Kate Beckinsale. Basically she's an FBI agent hunting a serial killer in Antarctica, right before the sun is about to set for 6 months. So yes, probably the least original story in the world at this point. And with the cold weather, I'm guessing we won't be seeing any leather body suits, either.
Todd Lincoln to adapt the comic "The Nye Incidents" for Dark Castle. Lincoln is currently working on Universal's adaptation of "Hack/Slash". So what's "The Nye Incidents" about? A children's television scientist who goes apeshit and kills all the world's children? I kid, I kid. It's actually about a "medical examiner on the hunt of a killer of alien abductees". Sounds pretty great, actually, although I still want to see my interpretation make it to the big screen.
You know how we're always saying that once our generation gets to the age where they're running for political office, we're all going to be screwed by incriminating evidence on the internet? Well, it's officially started. Better kiss that career in politics goodbye. (source complete with "ya, that's right" picture, priceless!)
1847: Lewis Keseberg, the final member of the Donner Party still stranded in the mountains, is escorted to safety by a fourth rescue party. Later accounts hold that Keseberg was discovered "seated, like a ghoul, in the midst of dead bodies, with his face and hands smeared with blood, and a kettle of human flesh boiling over the fire."
AICN has the first look at "Goon", the CGI adaptation of Eric Powell's comic book of the same name, being produced by David Fincher. I've never heard of the property but it looks pretty sweet to me.
I'm sure this movie "And Soon the Darkness" is about something. Personally, I stopped reading after "starring Amber Heard and Odette Youstman". What are they trying to start the apocalypse? Do they sincerely thing our pea-brains can handle all that hotness on one movie screen?
1942: John Wayne Gacy, part time clown, serial killer, and sodomizer of dozens of boys, is born in Chicago. His father was convinced Gacy was a "sissy", but friends and family didn't really suspect anything untoward was afoot until his 1968 arrest for coercing a teenage boy employee into committing multiple homosexual acts.
