Horror Headlines: Thursday August 19th, 2010
According to a leaked memo from the good people at Paramount it sounds like a big screen adaption of Max Brooks' novel "World War Z" is even closer to finding its way to theaters. The memo also included a funny video of a monkey peeing in its mouth and a smoking baby. It was a hoot!
Even more pictures of the upcoming AMC zombie miniseries "The Walking Dead" have found their way online. Next week the last set of images will be released and we'll post an animated gif of the entire series. Stay tuned!
"Dracula: Year Zero" is confirmed to move forward and the entire cast will be heading down under to start filming shortly. The flick will school us all on the true origins on everyone's favorite blood sucker. I've already learned he was born the same year as Jesus!
Seth Rogen will reportedly play the role of head ghost in the new Dreamworks animated feature "Boo U". There's not much in the way of details yet on the project but my guess is he'll be lovable and doofy but still win the girl and I'll want to punch him in the face.
Apparently the good people of Lake Havasu, the small town in Arizona where the upcoming film "Piranha 3D" was filmed are worried that folks will recognize the vacation spot in the film and avoid it in fear of real piranhas. I love when idiots and the movies we watch come together in one giant tidal wave of stupid.
