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...
Hey it's Friday the 13th! There's a horror movie named after that so we should all be excited. Let's promise ourselves that we'll annoy everyone we work with by spouting off ridiculous info about the film series and how much we hated the remake. People love that crap.
Get excited folks! Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have dropped the bomb that production on "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" will begin this summer. No specific details on the plot or when the film will see the light of day but aren't you just excited that it's happening? You couldn't stand up right now even if you wanted to could you? God you're sick.
Speaking of The Rock... Dwayne "My Man Crush" Johnson has been tapped to take on the lead role of the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Lore". Based on the comic book of the same name the story will tell the tale of a man who reluctantly becomes a member of a secret order of dream boats who battle mythical beasts. The "dream boat" part I added. Don't judge.
Word around the tubes is that none other than Mr. David Cronenberg is high atop a short list of directors to take on "Catching Fire", the much anticipated sequel to "The Hunger Games". Gary Ross who directed the first installment recently parted ways with Lionsgate due to the short filming schedule so now they're on the prowl. I mean if I was looking for a guy Cronenberg wouldn't be my first choice but I don't like to judge. The Rock isn't free though? Just wondering.
This isn't very exciting news but I wanted to share it with you because it makes me happy. "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho'", the movie about the making of "Psycho", seriously it is, has had its title cut down to just "Hitchcock" and begun production. Don't you feel better about the world now?
