"Twilight" producer, AKA chief glitter consultant, Mark Morgan has just lined up a big screen adaptation of the graphic novel "Head Smash". as his next project. The book with pictures tells the tale of a man who discoveries a serum that gives him super powers and uses it to take revenge on a crime circle that betrayed him. The glitter thing was the only "Twilight" joke I know.
Dave Kajganich, of "Blood Creek" fame, has been tapped by the folks over at Universal to write the script for the upcoming remake of "The Creature From the Black Lagoon". This can't turn out any worse than the "Wolfman" remake so let's keep our chins up on this one. Or not. Honestly I just ate some cookies from a Chinese restaurant and my mouth is numb. I'm kind of worried.
Ethan Hawke's award winning personality helped "Sinister" pull in a respectable $18.3 million this past weekend. Not a ground breaking number but when you consider the flick was only made for $3 million than you start to feel some baby quakes. That may also be these cookies though. I can't see out of my left eye.
The first still from "The Evil Dead" reboot has hit the tubes fresh off a hot unveiling at this past weekend NYC Comic-Con. Not going to lie, it's pretty freaking creepy. I also can't lie about the fact that there's some sort of weird film on my teeth now and brushing doesn't seem to do anything.
In Real People News:
And a giant eyeball washed up on a beach in Florida. Probably the most normal thing that happened in Florida all weekend.
Wow, you can go to jail for 10 years for returning used enemas to a CVS? I mean alright I guess if you pretend they haven't been used and they get restocked some real awful stuff can happen. But you got to assume the folks at Walgreens would just give you a slap on the wrist.
The remake of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" is on hold while they see how "The Wolfman" remake does. The creature design is already done, and at this point they're just waiting for the go-ahead from the studio.
Radha Mitchell seems genuinely upset in this interview that although a sequel to "Silent Hill 2" is in development, the original director probably won't return. Which leads me to believe she never actually saw the original film, which was a steaming pile of the highest order.
If you're interested, there's two new "H2" videos floating around this morning. You know, in case you really wanted to hear an interview with a 19 year old girl about a sequel to a remake to a film that she had probably never seen or heard of before signing on to star in it. Who wouldn't want to do that?
That truck driver who just cut you off on the highway? You might not want to fuck with him, because the FBI thinks there's a good chance he might be a serial killer. Not sure why it took them this long to come to that conclusion, but at least it's confirmed my irrational fear of truck drivers.
