Ivan Reitman wants to remake "Ghostbusters" now. Why the hell not already.
Barry Sonnenfeld, the guy who directed all three "Men in Black" films, has been tapped by the folks over at Warner Brothers to helm the big screen adaptation of the graphic novel "Lore". The film will focus on a man who becomes a member of a secret order that protects the world from folk bands. I kid it's got something to do with beasts or something. Dwayne Johnson is going to star. I adore him.
Holy crap don't you just love a good spoof movie? Did someone say "Scary Movie 19"!? Sign me up! And while you're at it serve me up a hot plate of "Supernatural Activity" which has just been bitch slapped with a November 9th DVD release. I'm not going to bother telling you what it's about because you can probably guess from the title but I will answer that one question that's burning in your loins right now... yes the guy from "My Sucky Teen Romance" is in it.
AMC is just cutting right to the chase and confirming that "The Walking Dead" will in fact get a fourth season. That's got to take a lot of pressure off the third season, huh? Have they finished filming yet? If they haven't I bet they will tomorrow.
In Real People News:
A Tennessee college student was rushed to the hospital after he nearly died from "butt-chugging". What's that you ask? Well it's when you put a tube up your bum hole and funnel wine into your ass. Turns out that isn't how Jesus intended you to drink his blood.
Wait you can get arrested for having sex with a couch? This guy in Wisconsin only got arrested because he was doing it in public, right? Please say yes...
"No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!". Very funny Mr. Bill Murray but I beg to differ. But apparently that's the note he included in a box he sent to Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman that also contained a shredded copy of the current "Ghostbusters 3" script. Look I get the guy is trying to be all Mr. indie and stuff but he also did not one but two "Garfield" movies so what's say ya make with the funny and go put on the pack, buddy.
Here's the first trailer for "Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection". If you just read that sentence and got excited then you might want to see some sort of specialist. You probably don't need to know the plot but there's some zombies obviously and a bunch of people held up on a farm. More importantly it looks like it was shot on a VHS camera from the mid-80's.
The year is winding down and it's a slow ass news day so here's some details on the upcoming "Shark Night" Blu-Ray release. A survival guide, some extra scenes and a clips of people being frightened by a fake shark will be included on the disc that will be released on January 3rd. Unfortunately the movie "Shark Night" will also be included so it's a toss up if you want to get it or not.
And to keep the 'China White' fun going, here's a study that found cocaine was on 90% of the baby changing tables they tested in public locations. This explains why my little bundle of joy is so happy after we change her at the mall. Of course an hour later she's throwing crap at us and slurring like Keith Richards.
"Vanishing on 7th Street" is apparently already available on VOD even though it won't be released in theaters till next month. In honor of all this a new clip has been released and I have to say the Brad Anderson directed gem is looking pretty good. I'm pretty sure the DVD was released back in July.
Director Joe Johnston now admits that "The Wolfman" remake was a big piece of crap and that he only did it because he was having money problems. Normally I would just think he's a prick trying to explain his way out of the doodie pile he made but I refuse to believe anyone that directed "Jumanji" could lie.
So apparently there's a new origin sequence in the second "Ghost Rider" film? Correct me if I'm wrong but I've seen the first one 37 times and there was an origin scene in that one right? Two origins? I'm not one to question it, I was terrible in science class and I'm not even sure this is actually science.
Ivan Reitman is here to crush all your hopes and dreams my friends. According to him "Ghostbusters 3" hasn't been cast yet so all the rumors you've heard about who will be playing the various characters are pretty much false. That and he's confirmed we're all going to die in a fiery hellstorm sometime this year. So there's that.

Nothing weird to see here. It's just a report about found documents about a Finnish dog who would impersonate Hitler during World War II. I'm surprised there was only one.
Bjork, who apparently still sucks, recently protested some sort of energy deal that no one gives a crap about because it's in Iceland by having a Karaoke marathon. You can make up your own jokes here folks. I've hated that little troll for close to twenty years now and I really just don't have it in me.
