Horror Headlines: Wednesday, July 11th, 2012
The saga of "Ghostbusters 3" continues today with new that "Men In Black III" and "Tropic Thunder" script Etan Cohen has been picked up to rewrite the script. I of course originally misread his name as Ethan Coen and got very excited and confused at the same time. I'm kind of stupid sometimes.
If there's one thing you know about me it's that I love me some "God Of War". I know I've never really mentioned the classic PS2 and PS3 games but I think it's been implied over the years that I'm a big fan. Of the first one at least. I've never played the others. But still. Biggest fan ever. So I'm excited to see that Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been tapped to write the script for the big screen adaptation of the game. Not so much excited about them. Just excited that a movie is being made. I like movies.
I don't know what it is about Eli Roth but I just want to be his friend and hang out with him. Nothing weird or creepy. I'd just like to play video games with him and maybe get dinner at Outback. But it looks like he's getting busy because he's now in talks to direct a new vampire tale titled "Harker" which Russell Crowe is already attached to. Try to tell me you wouldn't want to split a bloomin onion with Eli. Try to tell me you wouldn't and I"ll punch you right in your god damn face.
"The Monkey's Paw" is a classic tale about a man who comes into possession of a strange monkey's paw that has the power to grant his wishes. I say "classic" because I remember there being an episode of "The Monkees" based on the story and I refuse to believe those guys did anything that wasn't awesome. Well it was only a matter of time before a film was made about the tale and it looks like Brett Simmons, who directed "Husk", is the one leading the charge on it. "Last Train to Clarksville" is a really fun song for opening credits. I'm just tossing it out there Brett.
Doctors in New Jersey removed a 51 pound tumor from a woman who had waited over a month to be looked at because she was waiting for her insurance to kick in. Enjoy your morning yogurt.
And the bath salts fun continues. This time with a Georgia man being arrested after he tried to fight cops while he had feces in his mouth. No word as to whose feces they were. I hope not his own. That's just gross.
