Horror Headlines: Tuesday August 18th, 2009
Anne Rice loves to write about Lestat as if he's a real life person... oh, and she would also love it if Robert Downey Jr. signed onto the role. Both of those are things I learned from a recent posting to her website regarding the casting rumors that came out late last week.
Overture films is pushing their sci-fi film "Pandorum" ahead a week to make way for "Jennifer's Body". This puts the film at a September 25th release date, up against (for now) the remake of "The Crazies".
Myspace has the first official clip from "The Final Destination". Ya, this is going to be terrible, and probably a little awesome too, but mostly terrible.
Legendary horror writer Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in this Castle" has been picked up for an adaptation by Michael Douglas' production company.
When you up and remove your genitals seemingly out of nowhere, one thing you don't expect to hear from the doctor is "good job".
People are BBQ'ing dogs in New Zealand. Strike 1 for New Zealand. They're lucky they gave us Peter Jackson or they'd be dead to me right now.
Nobel laureate Sir William Golding, the guy who wrote "Lord of the Flies" admits to setting school age boys against each other for research while writing the book. Oh, and he maybe kind of tried to rape a girl when he was 15. Ya, it wasn't a great day for him.
1590: Sent to England to get supplies three years prior, John White finally returns to Roanoke Island and discovers his colony "strongly enclosed with a high palisade of great trees, with [curtain walls] and [bastions] -- very fort-like." There is no sign of the settlers or where they may have gone.
