Pascal Laguier

Snapshots: "Martyrs" director comes to American shores.

Pascal Laugier's "The Tall Man", starring Jessica Biel, has been completed and is currently being shopped around. I'm guessing it will be easier to stomach than his last film... Good god, the bathtub scene... ugh.

"Jessica Biel plays a nurse living in a small town where children have gone missing over the years, leaving no clues. One night, she finds her son's bed empty and, desperately rushing downstairs, confronts a huge dark figure, with her son in his arms." Teach Grant, William Davis, Samantha Ferris, Jodelle Ferland, and Stephen McHattie also star."

Tobin Bell confirms there is an eighth "Saw" movie planned and doesn't deny a ninth. He also failed to acknowledge the dead horse in the room that he was continually beating during the interview. Bell next's reprisal of his Jigsaw role is in the upcoming "Saw" video game, now being shown at E3.

Marking yet another promising creative team to leave the franchise, "Martyrs" director Pascal Laugier is no longer helming the "Hellraiser" remake. There was no reason given but it seems that this remake is quickly becoming a comedy of errors.

In bizarro reboot news, Courtney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette have signed on to the "Scream" reboot. Earlier rumors also pointed to Jamie Kennedy reprising his role. Could this be a first: a remake with the same cast? Do-over!

The first shots of Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex arrive online. They seem rather subdued when compared to the Thomas Jane pics that surfaced last year before Brolin was cast.
