World War Z

Horror Headlines: Friday July 1st, 2011

With so many people signing on to the zombie apocalypse film "World War Z" it's kind of nice to see Ed Harris and Matthew Fox both backing out of their roles in the movie. Ya know, cause seeing other people's misery makes me feel better about myself. Fox's departure is due to a scheduling conflict and as of now the reason Harris is out is uncertain but I bet it's because everyone on the set kept asking him what it was like to play Robocop. Till the day I die I will insist that was him.

Today we get a look at the first still to come from season 6 of "Dexter" which is currently filming down in Miami. In it you'll see Dexter doing some of his crime type work and looking all technical up in this piece. Plus he's holding something weird in a bag which I guess is some sort of spoiler but honestly I have no idea how. Good post, huh? I'm awesome at stuff.

Rod Serling, the guys who brought us "The Twilight Zone" along with countless other classics looks to be next in line to get the biopic treatment. Details are slim right now but Sterling's widow, Carol Serling, will be a producer on the film and "Wall Street" co-writer Stanley Weiser will pen the script. Pray they do it justice because the only thing more frightening then a group of angry nerds is a group of angry old nerds.

I am happy to report that the upcoming Daniel Craig flick "Dream House" has been slapped with an R rating by the MPAA. The movie focuses on a family that moves into a home only to discovers it was the setting for a brutal murder. I assume there's some sort of spooky happenings that take place shortly after the big move and hats off to the filmmakers for sacking up and throwing in some blood and maybe even some boobs. Keep your fingers crossed.

I usually avoid public pools because they are full of urine but here's another reason. A Massachusetts women was apparently floating dead in a local pool for 3 days before anyone noticed she was there. 3 days. Kids were probably playing on her, families were using her as some sort of floating coffee table and god only knows what was coming out of her during all this. I need to go shower in bleach.

And lastly in an ironic twist of fate, "To Catch a Predator" host Chris Hansen looks to have been caught cheating on his wife by way of a hidden camera sting, much like the ones he helped to set up on his show. Finally some vindication for all those creepy guys trying to pick up 12 years over the internet. Good for them.

Anthony Mackie has been added to the cast of the long awaited big screen adaptation of Max Brooks' "World War Z". The cast already includes Mr. Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos and is set to begin filming this summer. Mackie is currently filming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and 7 other movies, but I hope he gets some time to really drink the beauty that is Brad Pitt. God, I'd love to just get a lock of his hair or something. I've said too much.

Jane Levy looks like she could be anywhere between 11 and 30, but now she's been added to the cast of the teen Halloween comedy "Fun Size" so that means she's got to be a teen right? Is it creepy that I'm even bringing her age up? Little bit right? Are you uncomfortable? You should be! Anyway, the film focuses on a young girl who takes her little brother trick-r-treating, loses him and then spends the night trying to track him down before her mother finds out. I'm on some sort of watch list now aren't I... damn this site!

Do you love Godzilla? Well then you're sure to have lukewarm feelings about the new spoof "Notzilla: Duke of the Monsters"! Alright, honestly the movie, which already has Patrick Warburton and George Takei attached to it, looks like it could be funny for a half hour or so, but it's currently looking for distribution and the good people behind the film have put out a trailer to get some buzz going. If you have about 1.5 million it could be yours. Won't you help!? Won't somebody think of the children!?

Remember when seeing names like Tony Todd, Kane Hodder and Tiffany Shepis in a cast meant you were going to see a quality film? No, me either, but that doesn't matter because all three have been cast in the new werewolf flick "Hallow Pointe". The story takes place at a bed and breakfast where a couple must fight to stay alive when they find themselves checked in on the night of a full moon. I swear to god if I have to sit through another Kane Hodder sex scene I'm never watching another movie. You've been warned!

An empty house near Salem Massachusetts apparently called 911 on it's own after a pipe burst and caused toxic mold to form while the owner was away. Of course, "the man" is trying to say the call, which was just a hand up, was caused by the water shorting out the phone line and sending a random call out to 911 but anyone with an ounce of smarts know it's the work of demon witches from days of old. It's the only explanation.

A father in Queens NY is under arrest after his son brought the father's 8mm hand gun to school and sold it to another student for $3. Of course the father is pissed about the whole being arrested thing but I can't imagine he's too happy about his gun being sold for $3 bucks. You've got to imagine he could of gotten at least twice that.

Everybody loved Joss Whedon's catchy little musical when it launched online, so now you can buy Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog in book form! Just be forewarned; you have to provide the musical parts yourself.

I'm not a very approachable guy in the mornings. You could say I'm a bit grumpy, so I'm going to use that as an excuse as I kick you all in the beans with this official trailer for MTV's Teen Wolf.

The "Piranha" was a pretty big success so of course a sequel is on it's way. It wasn't until now that director John Gulager has started to release some tidbits on the zany plot for "Piranha 3 Double D"; which moves from Lake Havasu to the chlorinated depths of a water park!

It was already known that "Your Highness" director David Gordon was angling for a remake of the classic "Suspiria" for his next film. In a recent interview with Movieline, Gordon made fans just a bit less apprehensive of his plans by mentioning that they had procured the original film's Goblin score and he fully plans on using it!

Were you saddened by the news that "World War Z" may not be coming to the big screen due to financial woes? According to Deadline Hollywood, things might not be so bad. There could be as many as three different financiers in talks to share the load on the $125 million budget.

Ron Low wants to restore your foreskin. That is, if you feel slighted that your parents had it hacked off when you were 10 minutes old. Are you one of those people? Well lucky for you, TLC is going to cover his business "TLC Tuggers" in an upcoming show!

According to a leaked memo from the good people at Paramount it sounds like a big screen adaption of Max Brooks' novel "World War Z" is even closer to finding its way to theaters. The memo also included a funny video of a monkey peeing in its mouth and a smoking baby. It was a hoot!

Even more pictures of the upcoming AMC zombie miniseries "The Walking Dead" have found their way online. Next week the last set of images will be released and we'll post an animated gif of the entire series. Stay tuned!

"Dracula: Year Zero" is confirmed to move forward and the entire cast will be heading down under to start filming shortly. The flick will school us all on the true origins on everyone's favorite blood sucker. I've already learned he was born the same year as Jesus!

Seth Rogen will reportedly play the role of head ghost in the new Dreamworks animated feature "Boo U". There's not much in the way of details yet on the project but my guess is he'll be lovable and doofy but still win the girl and I'll want to punch him in the face.
