"Deadman" Director Rumored

Variety is rumoring that Danish director Nikolaj Arcel is onboard to direct a "Deadman" movie based on the DC series of the same name. Arcel's films include "King's Game" and "Island or Lost Souls." Beloved Guillermo del Roro and Susan Montford are said to be producing.

"Deadman is the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who has the power to possess the living in order to seek out his killer as well as to help the innocent. The character first appeared in 1967 and was created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Carmine Infantino."

"Eve" Creator Bows to "Hack/Slash"

In yesterday's news we reported on a story regarding a new film called "Eve", and how its plot bore a striking resemblance to another film in production right now called "Hack & Slash". Both stories involve a sexy female with a dead parent who has made it her life mission to track down "slasher killers".

Horror Headlines: Tuesday March 16th, 2009

Here's the teaser for Park Chan Wook's vampire film "Thirst". I have no idea what's going on since it's in Korean but people seem excited so I'm just going to go with it.

The guy who wrote "Watchmen", David Hayter is going to direct a werewolf thriller called "Slaughter's Road". No real details as of yet, but Thomas Dekker ("The Sarah Connor Chronicles") and Ray Stevenson ("Punisher: War Zone") are in talks to star.

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?

In Real People News: 

Officials are trying to ban genital waxing in New Jersey. This should be fine, since there aren't any hairy Italian people running around... oh wait...

Hiding stuff in plain sight is sometimes a great tact... unless of course you're talking about growing weed. In that case, keeping the plants on your front porch might not be a great idea.

When he dies Michael Jackson plans to be "plastinated", just like those poor Chinese people in the "Body Worlds" exhibit currently traveling the country. Enjoy that breakfast!

On this day in history: 

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.

Who watches the Watchmen? I do!

In the event that you live in a cave, or under a rock, you know full well that this past weekend marked the release of Zack Snyder's "Watchmen". The internet is a buzz with post viewing talk and for myself, I feel the need to join them!
