zombieland

Due to the "shadowcast" phenomenon (think Rocky horror but with Goth kids), "Repo: The Genetic Opera" director Darren Lynn bousman has launched a website to keep the mythos going. He says this is a "life long project" for him, which I hope means they'll eventually do another version of the film, only this time not so terrible.

The release of "Zombieland" has been bumped up a week. You can now check out the Woody Harrelson zombie film on October 2nd.

"28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is in talks to direct "Bioshock", the adaptation of the wildly popular videogame.

Todd Mcfarlane has officially started writing a new "Spawn" film. He says that it will be a standalone story, and he's shooting for an "R" rating.

The following is a "Rumble Trailer" for "The Final Destination" over at Break.com. Warning: the video does autoplay when you go there so watch those speakers at work. It's kind of a nifty little marketing thing though, so I recommend checking it out.

This news was from Friday... Robert Downey Jr. is rumored to be in final talks to play the Vampire Lestat in a reboot of "The Vampire Chronicles" by Anne Rice. This had the web abuzz late last week. Since I have no attachment to the stories and have a man-crush on Downey, I'll pretty much be watching this no matter how it turns out.

NBC to adapt "Midnight Mass" comic into a TV series. The story follows a globetrotting couple who solve mysteries and "crimes of the supernatural".

Robert Rodriguez produced "Predators" (directed by Nimrod Antal) will officially begin shooting in September. The story centers on a group of people stuck on the Predator's homeland, which as you can guess doesn't go very well.

New "Zombieland" poster. Saw this trailer again this weekend in front of "District 9". Still looks fun.

Frank Darabont is looking to shoot an adaptation of the graphic novel series "The Walking Dead", as a television series for AMC. That's one you don't hear every day.

Check out some decent "Zombieland" virals, each one containing a Zombieland "rule", brought to you by Woody Harrelson. Not the worst thing I've ever seen.

"2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys", the sequel to Tim Sullivan's "2001 Maniacs", has officially wrapped shooting. Expect to hear more from this project in the near future.

Do I want to see a horror/comedy called "Dahmer vs Gacey"? Well, no actually, I don't. But I'll let you make up your own mind.

I think I have found my most anticipated film of the year and it has a lot to do with Woody Harrelson, a wiley cowboy type with a chainsaw, the backup cast that sports that awkward kid from "Adventureland", and two kickass bitches with hearts of gold, one of which you will recognize from "Little Miss Sunshine".

So the story is floating around today that "Harper's Island" on CBS is officially canceled. Of course, since it was basically a summer filler miniseries, I'm not sure how people thought it had a chance of being "picked up" anyway. Besides, wasn't everyone dead at the end? Oooops... spoiler!

"Anchor Bay" has picked up "Grace" for a DVD release and limited theatrical run. The indie has been blazing up the festival circuit lately, and Anchor Bay seems like a logical place for it to find a home. It's an extremely limited release, only hitting a few theaters in NY and LA, but if you live in those areas you just might have the chance to see it on the big screen. The film is about "a mother who brings her dead fetus to term, and gives birth to a child with an appetite for blood".

After numerous stumbles along the way, the comic adaptation "HACK/SLASH" has a new director. Frederik Bond will be replacing Todd Lincoln as the helmer. The film will supposedly begin shooting by the year's end. "HACK/SLASH" deals with a sexy young woman who travels the country, taking on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.

"Zombieland" has a poster, and it's pretty sweet.

The trailer for Woody Harrelson's epic zombie romp "Zombieland" hit the web tonight. Sure it looks a lot like "Shaun of the Dead 2", but I can't lie, I'm totally sold on this hot mess. Leave that feedback in the comments, friends.
