Horror Headlines 5/29/08

Robert Rodriguez is shopping a TV Show around called "Women in Chains". The show, described as a "violent drama" is reportedly influenced by 70's exploitation films, and is to star his "Planet Terror" muse (and apparently, fiance) Rose McGowan. I haven't read the rest of the news yet but I'm assuming this will be the strangest story of the day.

First pic from "Death Race". I've never seen the original, but this looks like "Twisted Metal" to me and needless to say, that's awesome.

Rainn Wilson joins the cast of "Transformers 2". I'm guessing this will totally silence all the people who were pissed that the first film wasn't really about the Transformers... Oh wait, no it won't.

Two new banners for "The Dark Knight". Also, we're finally a little over a month away from release! This film is rivaling "Cloverfield" for film to come out this year that seemed to be in development FOREVER.

Bad news for "Reanimator" fans, as Stuart Gordon says "House of Reanimator" probably isn't going to happen, at least any time soon. The film was to be about Herbert West being called in to reanimate a dead president who then turns into a zombie, and has his inner circle running things for him. Sound familiar? It should, as the whole thing was cooked up in the early 2000's as a satire on the Bush Administration. In related news, those of us who have seen "Beyond Reanimator" aren't too sad at this news.

In Real People News: 

According to pillar of honest journalism, Fox News, A Denver man will reveal "evidence" of 4 foot tall gray aliens on Friday. Oh, that's not that long to wait for proof of life on other planets. See you guys tomorrow!

It might be time to cancel that visit to the UK, mainly because of a new trend called "Happyslapping", where gangs of roving children beat people to death, film it, put it on Youtube, and laugh heartily. Jesus christ, what the hell is "happy" about that?

Finished breakfast yet? Good, because news today is that Chef Gordon Ramsay may have eaten part of some dude's thumb during filming of his reality show "Hell's Kitchen". Now if you'll excuse me, I think I have to go get a refund on my breakfast.

On this day in history: 

1999: Hikers discover the skeletal remains of Philip "Taylor" in his Ford Aerostar at the bottom of a 200-foot ravine in Malibu, California. The onetime bassist for the band Iron Butterfly had disappeared four years prior.
