We could simply cut and paste stories from Variety, but we don’t. We’re too amazing for that. We RETYPE articles from Variety…

IT’S A HORROR MOVIE, NOT AN ADULT PRODUCT

William Castle is having some kind of weird renaissance indeed. There’s been the almost annual rash of remakes of his films from Dark Castle Entertainment (they missed this year). Now producer Neal Moritz (the immortal mastermind behind XXX: State of the Union, Torque and S.W.A.T.) is putting together a redo of the Castle film The … Continue reading

BOBBY DRAKE, PORN STAR

Much like Hayden Christensen tried to shake the whole Vader thing by taking on the drama Shattered Glass, Shawn Ashmore is seeking to shed his image as pretty young mutant (which appearances on Smallville probably didn’t help).  Ashmore will star in an indie titled 3 Needles, an AIDS drama broken up into three segments that … Continue reading

SPOILER: SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE

I’m supposed to interview David Goyer on Sunday for Blade: Trinity (although that kind of stuff changes on a dime, so don’t quote me on it), but now there’s one question I don’t have to ask him: "How the fuck are you going to remake Soylent Green?" Even people who haven’t seen Soylent Green know … Continue reading

MEMO TO HOLLYWOOD: CUT IT OUT

Recently I have come under some fire on our message boards and in my email for being a little negative about films in development. I have been told that I am angry, or bitter, or perhaps just a pretentious prick. While these are all good judgements of my character (please remember to include in future … Continue reading

BROSNAN HAS A NEW AFFAIR

What a difference a day or two makes. On Monday I interviewed Pierce Brosnan for this weekend’s After the Sunset, a heist movie. He briefly mentioned that he liked heist films, but when asked what he was doing next he said that he was looking for a job. No mention, you see, of The Topkapi … Continue reading

KELLY CARLSON IS REALLY HOT

I’m sure there’s a percentage of the population who’s thrilled that the WWE is stretching from “sports entertainment” (i.e., burly sweaty men engaging in homoerotic fake-violence).  At least they selected a delicious Hollywood cupcake to be the eye candy in their first feature film endeavor.  Lissome hottie Kelly Carlson, the resident psycho/coke fiend/porn star of … Continue reading

FINE YOUNG CANNIBAL

As the mysterious and dangerous man of action Dave Davis informed you last week (right here), there’s yet another Hannibal book coming out, and I ain’t talking A-Team or elephants. Thomas Harris is making a naked play for bucks by writing a prequel to all the current Lecter literature, and Dino DeLaurentiis, producer of King … Continue reading

REQUIEM FOR AN ARONOFSKY

Moriarity over at Aint It Cool News is saying that it’s official – Darren Aronofsky is off the Watchmen adaptation. I’m getting pretty good at taking loss in stride. It seems that the director is off the project because his The Fountain will conflict with getting the Alan Moore classic into theaters summer after next. … Continue reading

SEQUEL ALL SAW-ED UP

I hated the living shit out of the movie, but millions of Americans once again ignored my best advice and made the indie horror film Saw a surprise hit this weekend. Making 18 million dollars (and being the number one choice for moviegoers on Halloween), the movie "exceeded all our expectations," Lions Gate president Tom … Continue reading

THE DEAD DAWN AGAIN

Zombies are hot right now, which is kind of gross because you would think that a warmer environment would only speed their decay. Which is sort of a good metaphor for all the zombie movies we’re getting, as I will bet you dollars to donuts that once the current zombie craze ends we’re seeing our … Continue reading
