Frank Marshall, the mega-producer behind the Back to the Future franchise, Gremlins, The Goonies and several of Steven Spielberg’s films, has his sights set on a new genre project that would blend the sensibilities of some of his earlier efforts with the classic slasher horror concept. Marshall is teaming up with the guys behind the new Friday the 13th reboot for a film called Cropsey, which has nothing to do with that documentary from a few years ago.
Fear The Walking Dead has helped remind fans of the AMC horror-smash what its titular corpses looked like early on, a point well contrasted with early looks at The Walking Dead Season 6's ever-increasing rot. S6 may well mark a turning point however, as producer Greg Nicotero has reached a point of requiring digital effects to continue the gruesome decay of The Walking Dead.
Overdue for a new trailer though we are, The Walking Dead Season 6 teased plenty by its first footage at Comic-Con 2015, and the subsequent weeks. Now, with production deep into Season 6, new rumors suggest that The Walking Dead has already begun filming with a new major comic character, while casting calls suggest the next big bad will make an appearance before long.
More than any before it, Hannibal Season 3 leaned on the written word of franchise author Thomas Harris, particularly Red Dragon, occasionally adapting entire exchanges and scenes to fit the renewed context of Bryan Fuller’s twisted love story. One scene in particular between Hannibal and Will splashes right off the page in all three filmed adaptations, captured in a new mashup of Hannibal, Red Dragon and Manhunter.
Anxious though we are to see Arrow and The Flash speeding out their fall 2015 trailers, fellow comic imprint iZombie managed to shuffle right past the DC heroes with a first Season 2 sneak peek. It’s a whole new status quo for Liv, but whose brains are on the menu this time around?
Ever since Cary Fukunaga parted ways with New Line on the new adaptation of Stephen King’s traumatic classic It, rumors have swirled about what caused the departure. Some reports suggested that the director clashed with the studio over the budget, while others — fueled by rumors about Fukunaga’s problems with Nic Pizzolatto on True Detective — speculated that the director was simply too difficult to work with. In a new interview, Fukunaga sets the record straight.
Eli Roth has not one, but two films hitting theaters this fall — first up is The Green Inferno, his cannibal horror throwback film that was delayed by studio issues. The other is Knock Knock, a dramatic thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a married man who gets in over his head with two young women. A new trailer has arrived for the latter, promising the sort of ‘90s thriller vibe that’s become quite trendy as of late — and just the sort of thing Reeves is quite good at.
The loss of Wes Craven is one that’s felt pretty heavily in the film community, and there’s been no shortage of fans, filmmakers and actors sharing their remembrances of the director and his influence on their lives and work. Director Edgar Wright is one such fan of the late Craven, and took to his website to share a thoughtful and moving look back at the filmmaker whose work affected so many.
We’re still feeling the loss of horror icon Wes Craven, who sadly succumbed to brain cancer this past Sunday, but the revered director’s influence will continue to be felt for years to come. Not only has Syfy opted to continue on with Craven’s TV work on two new series, but so too will MTV’s Scream pay tribute to the man with its upcoming season finale.
And lo, Hannibal has come to a very permanent-seeming end, closing out Season 3 with a redux of the Red Dragon arc that saw its two leads on a very literal cliffhanger, and another character losing quite a bit of limb. Continually optimistic about a movie wrap-up, creator Bryan Fuller talks his idea for Season 4 and the inevitable Silence of the Lambs treatment, which may or may not involve Ellen Page and David Bowie.
