Biz Break: A Video Game Movie, A Horror Sequel, And A Novel Walk Into A Bar...
David Cronenberg is responsible for the visceral and vomit-inducing masterpiece The Fly, as well as Scanners, Videodrome, A History of Violence, and, my personal penis-flopping favorite, Eastern Promises. Prepare your brains for Cronenberg’s newest project: the book Consumed. Trailer is NSFW.
I watched Sinister in the dark with my husband on the couch and with EvenStevens via Google+ Hangout. It scared all three of us pretty badly, as we had all attempted to remain somewhat ignorant concerning the plot of the movie.
That movie is fucked up, kids.
At any rate, it was successful and so has spawned a sequel that begins filming this summer. Scott Derrickson, original director and co-writer, will be writing the sequel’s script with C. Robert Cargill. Directing duties are now in the hands of Ciaran Foy (Citadel). I doubt that a sequel can match the feeling that the original gave me, but I’m sure I’ll watch it.
Bioshock could still totally be made into a movie, you guys. Sony Pictures still has the rights to the video game adaptation and they have registered three Bioshock domains, according to Kotaku. Sony might be squatting on the web sites or perhaps they’ve moved past the departure of Gore Verbinski and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to move forward. Bioshock creature Kevin Levine may have attempted a script after finishing the glorious Bioshock Infinite and perhaps it has the renewed the studio’s interest in the property.
