Horror Headlines: Wednesday September 15th, 2010

According to the twitterverse Kevin Pollak has signed on to the cast of Kevin Smith's "Red State". The film is about a group of kids who encounter a gang of crazed fundamentalists in middle America. The good news? No mention of Jay or Silent Bob in the cast list

Gore Verbinski, the guy who directed all the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, still wants to make a "Bioshock" film and he's willing to murder to make it happen. Alright he probably won't go that far but he's super into making it happen. So into it he would kill! Sorry.

What's better than 6 new clips from "Let Me In"? How about 8! You guessed 7 didn't you? Of course if the movie sucks 0 would be the correct number. Either way there's a lot of math going on here and I need a nap.

Why wouldn't you do a 3D remake of the 1977 film "Kingdom of the Spiders"? Well alright there's really a long list of reasons but at this point who gives a crap. 3D is freakin awesome! Bring on the spiders and whatnot.

Magnet Releasing, which is a part of Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to "Chawz". If you couldn't guess by the title the Korean film is about a giant crazed pig terrorizing a peaceful countryside. My mistake, there's no way you could have guessed what this movie is about.

Two new procedures have been approved by the FDA to help fight obesity. Both break down fat cells by cooling them to the point of no return and flushing them from your body. I look forward to the next release where it warms the fat into a creamy dip for chips and crackers.

Gore Verbinski has surfaced from the depths to talk about the delays surrounding the big screen adaptation of 2K Games "Bioshock", sighting troubles of maintaining a manageable budget while keeping a hard R rating.

AMC made clear some time ago that director Frank Darabont would only be directing the pilot of their epic undead series "The Walking Dead". As the production of the show hits full steam, AMC starts to look towards their next director with their sites set firmly on "Breaking Bad" helmer Michelle Maxwell McLaren.

Nobody knows for sure what the viral "Patient Zero" is advertising, but the postcards handed out to patrons of this weekend's Anime Expo are intriguing at least.

Who is Roger Jackson? He's none other than that gravely voice we hear on the phone whenever Ghostface calls to flirt with Drew Barrymore in the "Scream" movies. Not that it makes much of a difference on the outcome of "Scream 4", Mr. Jackson has officially signed on to reprise his role.

In Real People News: 

Some guy in England thought it would be a good idea to make jelly out of a piece of Princess Di's hair. Surprisingly, he only made $10 off of his concoction on Ebay.

Indian police rescued a man who had been held prisoner in a 6 foot by 3 foot coffin since 2007.

I'm actually pretty proud that it took me nearly two days to realize that "Twilight" won best movie at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend. If you also didn't know, consider yourselves lucky.

Gore Verbinski says he's pretty much off of "Bioshock", mainly because he doesn't think his schedule will allow him to shoot outside of the US for a year and a half, which will pretty much be a requirement due to the film's logistics and budget.

International trailer for "Train", the remake of "Terror Train" that it turns out isn't a remake but still has "Train" in the name. Got all that? I'm glad, because it was probably the most pointless sentence I've ever written.

Lionsgate is moving forward with a 3D remake of the 80's film "Happy Birthday To Me". The original is a fairly classic 80's slasher with a mess of an ending, that most people seem to love. I was a little peeved. Either way, it will probably make for pretty simple fair to remake.

In Real People News: 

High School teen in trouble for eating pig testicles on a dare. I know that animal testicles are eaten in certain parts of the country, but not like this. The kid ate the nuts off of a fetal pig, that had been soaking in FORMALDEHYDE. So, now you see how that may pose a problem.

1793: Jean-Paul Marat recites names of 29 people to the French Assembly, virtually all of whom will be guillotined. Over the next year 17,000 will be executed in the Reign of Terror.

Here's the trailer for "The Cell 2". So ya, that happened. The film goes direct to DVD on June 16th.

A list of the schools that will be used as external locations for the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake shoot, which will apparently be shot in Chicago. Area students over 16 are welcome to audition as extras. The film begins shooting May 5th under the direction of Samuel Bayer.

Bill Murray to have a cameo in Woody Harrelson's zomcom "Zombieland", a film which just got a lot cooler.

Here's your "bang your head off your desk" story for Monday morning. "Videodrome" is being remade at Universal as a "large-scale sci-fi thriller". Oh boy, that's up there with one of the worst sentences I've ever had to type on this site.

But wait... there's more to this story than meets the eye. Universal has also put Gore Verbinski's adaptation of "Bioshock" on hiatus because of money concerns. So let's recap. The same company that doesn't have money for the amazing original property "Bioshock", does have the money to remake a dumbed down version of "Videodrome" as some sort of big budget action/sci-fi movie. Kind of gives you the warm & fuzzies, doesn't it?

It's being reported that Robert Rodriguez is aiming to shoot "Machete", the full version of his "Grindhouse" trailer, in June. Danny Trejo to star. This should be interesting.

In Real People News: 

Japanese pop star found naked in a public park in Tokyo, screaming his fool head off about how there was "nothing wrong with being naked". Certainly not. Carry on.

I'm not a huge science fiction fan, but I've seen enough of the films to know that anything being described as a "space blob" is bad news. Trust me.

On this day in history: 

1940: Heinrich Himmler gives orders to construct a concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland. Only 14 months later, Auschwitz is open for business.
