Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 24th, 2010

Wes Craven is a busy man this month! Rogue Pictures has announced that they will release his next film "My Soul to Take" on October 29th. Here's hoping that grand master Wes can give us horror fans a better Halloween treat than 'Yet Another Saw Movie'.

Lars von Trier has let it be known that he will next be visiting the end of the world with his apocalyptic thriller "Melancholia". Few details are certain at this time but early rumors claim that the movie will involve Earth colliding with another planet. So far, there has been no mention on whether or no Willem Dafoe's penis will make an appearance or not.

"Alice in Wonderland" scribe Linda Wolverton is working on a live action "Maleficent" screen play. If you're currently scratching your head, Maleficent is the evil queen from Disney's 1956 classic "Sleeping Beauty". Even stranger, Tim Burton is said to have taken keen interest in the project and may be lining up to direct.

After finally un-wedging his bulk from the seats of Soutwest Air, Kevin Smith lets it be known via his twitter account that they are finally ready to begin on "Red State". From Smith, "Looks like we start shooting this July. Took nearly three years, but we're finally ready to roll on Red".

His daughter was surprised when she came home to find him writing in pain on the floor, bleeding from the anus.

Cheaters never win and sore losers are never fun. Sometimes, people are just better than you. Frustrated after getting 'pwned' in Counter Strike at a local net cafe, a swearing gamer stabbed his 17 year old opponent in the head with a large kitchen knife when he suspected the 17 year old was cheating. "IM IN UR BASE, STABBIN UR DOODS"
