People have gone gaga for the African zombie flick "The Dead" and while I haven't seen it and I've been pretty tuckered out so I haven't even watched the trailer I want you to know that I am really excited about the sequel being announced. The sequel is slated for a February kick off and the filmmakers have confirmed they want it to blow the first flick out of the water. Wouldn't it be hilarious if they just came out and said they're doing this for money and they don't give a rat's ass if the film is good or not?
I kind of forgot about "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" and that it was actually happening but it is and today we've got word that Jaime King and Jamie Chung have both been confirmed for the flick. King will play the twin sister of Goldie, the little hooker that could from the original flick and Chung will play that girl who I lean over and ask my wife if she was on The Real World. Spoiler alert, she was.
It looks like a sequel to the "Fright Night" remake may actually happen despite the flick pretty much crapping the bed at the box office. Apparently there's an unnamed small production company that may want to pick it up and spin the film off into its own brand. What the hell that means I don't really know but I'm guessing we're looking at direct to video nonsense so most likely nothing good will come from this. Of course this is just a rumor so it could be BS. Like that one that got started when I was in High School that I tried to make love to a tape recorder. Don't judge.
Chloë Sevigny, who freaks me the 'eff out, has been cast in the new A&E Drama "Those Who Kill" about a cop partnered with a forensic profiler who specializes in serial killers. The show is a US adaptation of a Danish show and is based on the books of Elsebeth Egholm. I don't know who she is but that G in her last name kind of makes me uncomfortable too.
In Real People News:
All hell is broken loose on the East coast so here's some crazy ass photos of some of the flooding and chaos. I'll get back to the posting about guys biting people's faces off tomorrow.
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?
