Horror Headlines 8/14/08

Just for Schnaars this morning, the Red Band trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's remake "Death Race". Good God Natalie Martinez is hot.

This one is also for Jon, but in a different way. Brett Ratner is at the forefront of a group of people trying to purchase the remake rights for "Mother's Day" from TROMA, so they can do a redux of the Charlie Kaufman film. This story doesn't really compute in my brain so I'm going to move on.

Production offices for "Diary of the Dead 2" are officially open for business, meaning filming on the sequel can't be far behind. Also, this officially shatters my notion of a meritocracy in the horror community. Although let's be honest, that one went out the window a long time ago.

Report from test screening of "Jennifer's Body": The movie's not so good, and there is no nude scene from star Megan Fox... to which I respond, thanks for ruining my day, Diablo Cody.

In Real People News: 

A bunch of Georgia boys claim that they will present evidence that they've found Big Foot today at a press conference. As I said to Casey yesterday, this is pretty exciting but I'd be more willing to believe them if they weren't all involved in a big-foot related business. They claim to have DNA evidence and a group of scientists who are looking at the carcass now, so I guess we'll find out soon enough.

On this day in history: 

1945: Over the radio, Hirohito announces his unconditional surrender to Allied forces, thus bringing an end to World War II. This broadcast is the first chance the Japanese people have had to hear their god-emperor's speaking voice.
