The folks over at New Line have set their sights on a remake of the 1973 murder mystery film "The Last of Sheila". As of now they've yet to settle on a writer or director for the movie that revolves around a group of people invited to a scavenger hunt aboard a yacht owned by a man whose wife was killed in a hit and run a year earlier. I have no idea how you have a scavenger hunt on a boat so that's really what I'm interested to find out here. Also if someone uses the words "poop deck".
We already know that "The Woman in Black: Angels of Death" is in the works. Remember when I told you about that? You don't, do you. Sometimes I think I'm wasting my time coming up with witty comments day after day. Well maybe you'll listen to this! According to Hammer CEO Simon Oakes there are hopes that "The Woman in Black" will live on well past 2 films and become a franchise of sorts. Maybe it could even spawn other story lines. Like "The Woman In Plaid", about a ghost who terrorized hillbillies in the woods or something. This is going to be big.
Cam Gigandet, who's last name is impossible to pronounce, will be joining Emily Browning in a new film titled "Plush". Gigandet plays a psychic doctor who helps patients get over their past by drilling down into their memories. Browning plays a young teen who possesses the same gift. "I'm in your head!", "Well now I'm in your head!". And hilarity ensues.
Little known writer Jay Basu and UK director Tom Green have been picked up to bring "Monsters 2", the follow up to the the 2010 mumble core underground little movie that could. The only way I could be excited about this is if the real Tom Green, the bum bum song guy, was directing and starring in it. In fact I would only be excited about this if it was titled "Freddy Got Fingered 2".

Ya know everyone seems to hate bullies these days so I'm a little surprised that this teacher in Texas has been fired for having his class line up and slap a known bully in the face one by one. And in Texas of all places. I thought they loved violence. I'm disappointed.
We've all hated our neighbors at one time or another. Honestly in the 10 years I've lived on my own I've probably spoken to my neighbors a total of 0 times. I just keep it gangsta. But this woman in South Carolina went a different direction and decided to throw a pan of hot grease at hers after they had an argument. Now that I think of it she might be keeping it gangsta and I just kind of keep it quiet.
Why the hell not? It looks like Sonar Entertainment and Panacea Entertainment are teaming up to create a new TV series based on the "Hellraiser" franchise. Nothing has actually been written or sold to anyone but if all goes well you'll be seeing Pinhead on Fox Family next Fall.
The "Leprechaun" reboot is finally getting some traction today, dropping the news that it will be titled "Leprechaun: Origins" and has a little leading man in the form of Hornswoggle. Apparently that's a wrestler and I have no idea what his real name is but based on the amount of twitter action I saw this past Sunday during Wrestlemania 95% of our readers have semis right now.
I don't know about you but I loved "The Woman in Black". I want to open mouth kiss it at inspiration point. So now I'm excited for the three way I'm going to have in the back of my Honda CRV because a sequel has just been announced. "The Woman in Black: Angels of Death" will pick up 40 years after the first film and is being penned by Jon Croker who worked as the story editor on the first film. Alright I know you can't have sex with a movie. A guy can dream though can't he?
Get excited, kids! "We Need to Talk About Kevin", everyone's favorite "my son is an asshole" flick is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on May 29th. That's all I got. Please tip your waiter.

Listen up you little white trash toddlers! Here's a story about a Louisiana man who died at a Wrestlemania party this past weekend after his cousin put him in a choke hold. I have no idea how you little scamps are still alive.
