Some details around the upcoming "Leatherface 3D" film have been released and it sounds like some big changes are on the way. First, the film will take place in present day Texas and secondly it sounds like Leatherface gets offed right at the beginning of the film... sort of. I mean the name of the movie is "Leatherface 3D" so he's got to be in it, right? They wouldn't do that would they? Oh god I'm so afraid.
Nick Searcy, who you might remember as "Uncredited" in the film "Eagle Eye" has signed on to star in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Metamorphosis", a book by Franz Kafka. For those of you who didn't have to read this in High School, the book is about a young boy who finds himself transforming into a cockroach. Now that I describe this I realize it's kind of weird that I had to read this in High School. Am I the only who who had to stay after school for private lessons from a teacher who refused to wear pants? He said it was normal.
For those of you who didn't get a chance to fork over 80 bucks to see Kevin Smith's "Red State" I'm happy to report the movie will hit VOD, and I assume every torrent site, on September 5th of this year. Along with that the movie will get a limited release in October. Some showings will reportedly feature live streaming Q&A sessions which I'm guessing will actually just be about 5 minutes of Kevin Smith rambling about how "indie" he is followed by 30 minutes of him shoveling pizza down his fat gullet.
Thomas Jane, the poor man's Lorenzo Lamas, has signed on to play a role in a new werewolf movie set in the 1700's titled "The Lycan". Not many details other than that have been released and no word as of yet if Jane will actually get to become a werewolf soooo... How's things with you? Any big vacations plans for the summer?
In Real People News:
A Florida man is facing animal cruelty charges after he was caught making sweet sweet love to the family dog. Who caught him going to sexy town with Fido you might ask? Why his grandson of course! It's really the only way this story could be any more wrong, isn't it.
And here's a story about a woman who sprayed police with breast milk after they tried to break up a domestic dispute going on at her house. And I thought there was no way today could get any sexier.
It seems like these days you can’t spit without hitting a horror film with Ron Perlman in it. Trust me I tried last night and as a result I am not longer allowed in the Fairview New Jersey Blockbuster. But on top of “Dark Country” being another Perlman flick it also stars and was directed by genre vet Thomas Jane (“The Mist” and “Dreamcatcher”).
A couple en route from Las Vegas are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride.
Some pics from Thomas Jane's "Dark Country", a film in which he is serving as both writer and director. The story concerns "a couple en route from Las Vegas that are forced to deal with a body out in the desert, making their honeymoon one hellish ride". Tom Jane being the nerd-friendly guy that he is, I've got high hopes for this project. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he's referring to it as a "3D Noir Supernatural Thriller". Daddy like.
Hey there teenagers... if some old guy is nice enough to buy you beer and party at his house - creepiness aside - don't light his crotch on fire. It's just bad form and probably ensures he's not going to do it again... assuming he'll ever be able to walk again that is.
I'm sure there have been Indonesian serial killers who have released books before. Not positive, but it seems likely. A collection of pop songs on the other hand, I'm betting that's never happened before. As far as strange foreign pop music though, I'm sure it will never top this gem, but then again what could.
On this day in history:
1459: Vlad the Impaler impales thousands of merchants and burghers of the town of Brasov, in Transylvania. Some estimate as many as 30,000 impalements, but it was probably more on the order of 2,000.
"The Mist" opens in a sleepy Maine town as a deadly storm is rolling in. Once it has passed, we see that the aftermath has left a pretty sizable hole in the house of our protagonist David (played by Thomas Jane). David then takes his child Jake and his neighbor Brent (played by Andre Braugher) into town for supplies, leaving his wife at home. As most of you have probably figured out by now, he doesn't ever come back.
