Robert Rodriguez has found a writer for "Predators". His name is Alex Litvak, and he has never written a film that has actually been completed, with only one screenplay to his credit which is "currently in production". Um... sweet?
The full list of MTV Movie award nominations is out, and the biggest winner is "Twilight", which somehow garnered more nominations than "The Dark Knight". Also in the "huh?" category, "Prom Night's" Jonathan Skaech nominated for "Best Villian". If all it took for the nomination was to have five o'clock shadow and wear a baseball hat, I should be nominated like, every day.
The official plot synopsis for Rob Zombie's "H2" has been released, and while it's not a whole lot of new information, it does mention "an unlikely new hero", something which has not been discussed up until this point. My guess? He's referring to the now damaged Laurie Strode, who I can only expect Zombie is going to have go all "70's revenge movie" on Myers, because you know, that's what he does.
A Chinese woman accidentally bit her bosses penis off while giving him oral sex in a car recently. While engaged in the act, their car was hit by a reversing van, causing the ensuing jaw-clench. I'm guessing she might as well throw any hopes of a positive review out the window right now.
I knew cats were evil. Apparently half the world has been infected by the cat-parasite "Toxoplasma gondii", and it's affecting our personalities. Little bastards.
On this day in history:
1937: Zeppelin Hindenberg explodes at Lakehurst NJ, leaving 36 dead and others seriously burned. A reporter witnessing the carnage coins the phrase "oh, the humanity!"
Dimension films picks up "Kristy". The film is being compared to "The Strangers" and "Last House on the Left", and deals with a deserted college campus being besieged by a group of violent intruders.
Finally, after months of hearing about mundane, meaningless scoops from the set of Rob Zombie's "H2", comes word that we'll be seeing a trailer on Youtube this Friday. Rest assured we'll be on it when it lands.
Jonathan Skaech is highly positive about his "From a Buick 8" script, and says that Stephen King (the original author of the book) loves it. Unfortunately because of the economy, financing any film is difficult right now, but he hopes that it will go in front of cameras this fall. As for stars? He claims they "are going after big names right now". Hopefully we'll hear some more news about this adaptation soon.
Teenager in Arizona was so surprised to find a cop inside the car he was trying to steal recently, that he shat his pants. No idea why today's stories are so scatological, but I guess I'm just going to go with it.
Husband shoots wife in the head, kills himself... she gets up afterward, disoriented, and makes herself a cup of tea. The woman is alive and in stable condition, despite the fact that the bullet went straight through her brain and out the back of her head. Doctors are baffled.
On this day in history:
1915: The German Army opens 5,700 canisters of chlorine gas upwind of French soldiers at Ypres. It is the first use of poison gas for military purposes.
