Horror Headlines: Wednesday June 30th, 2010

Pack your picnic basket and grab your hood because Warner Brothers has set a date for Catherine Hardwicke's werewolf tale "Red Riding Hood". This Amanda Seyfried starring gothic retelling will hit theaters on March 11th, 2010.

The next "Final Destination" installment has been given an annoying official title in the form of "5nal Destination". Details have slipped about the film's opening suspension bridge disaster as well, but we all stopped caring after "5nal".

Anne Rice herself has taken to talking up speculation about her own properties as she drops hints about a possible "Vampire Lestat" reboot as well as a possible "Witching Hour" film or TV series. There are little to no concrete details thus far but 'Twihards', pay attention; this is where your whole goth romance schtick got its start.

In Real People News: 

Roger Saulnier was taking his dog for a late night walk when he heard screams coming from the nearby train tracks. When he found a woman who had fallen beneath a train and had her legs severed, he didn't think twice about reaching into the bloody stubs and tying off her arteries by hand saving the woman's life. This humble hero for a day credits his years as a jeweler for giving him the skills to pull off such a feat.

If you're hired to kill someone, make sure to double check the address... lest you get it wrong and accidentally kill an innocent family.

On this day in history: 

1882 - Charles Guiteau, the assassin of President Garfield, is hanged. Tickets for the event went for as much as $300.
