Horror Headlines: Friday May 22nd, 2009

Brett Easton Ellis is writing an original screenplay in the vein of horror, about "an awkward social outcast who takes hostage a group of peers who humiliated him, with grim results". Given Ellis' sensibilities, this could be a very dark project. Stay tuned for more.

Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights", "Spin City") has landed the role of Nancy's mother in Platinum Dunes' "A Nightmare on Elm St.", making her officially 100 times hotter than Nancy's mom in the original film.

"Saw VI" has officially wrapped filming, meaning we should start seeing the first stills/footage pretty soon.

MTV has a new still of Michael Myers in "Halloween 2" that I actually like. I figured that was newsworthy right there.

In Real People News: 

Mary Kay Letourneau and her husband (the one who was in sixth grade when they hooked up) are now doing bar appearances called "Hot For Teacher Night". Um... words escape me at the moment.

This guy is a serial killer of bunnies. Yes, you read that correctly.

On this day in history: 

337: Emperor Constantine dies. Although quite dead, his embalmed corpse continues to act as head of state, receving state dignitaries and daily reports from ministers as if nothing had changed. Constantine's macabre leadership continues through winter.

It's rumored that Oliver Stone is in talks to direct "Helter Skelter", based on the book of the same name written by Vincent Bugliosi.

In Real People News: 

A Queens retiree makes extra money by selling flowers at the local cemetery. As it turns out, he gets his stock by stealing flowers from the same cemetery. Now that's a man that understands supply and demand.

On this day in history: 

May 20th 1999 - The dissolving body parts of eight people are discovered inside six plastic barrels sitting in an abandoned bank vault in Snowtown, Australia. I bet it still smelled better than my own rotting savings account!
