End of Days, Inc. Lays Off the Apocalypse

Published

on

A new horror comedy is on its way that puts a supernatural spin on the work place entitled End of Days, Inc., and right now we have the trailer, stills, and more. Dig it before the rain of frogs and famine.

From the Press Release:
Indiecan Entertainment has acquired the Canadian and US distribution rights to END OF DAYS, INC., a darkly comic feature film with a supernatural spin marking Jennifer Liao’s feature directorial debut, which recently premiered at the USA Film Festival in Dallas, Texas.

The ensemble film, written by Christina Ray (Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning), stars Mark O’Brien (“Republic of Doyle”), Carolyne Maraghi (Picture Day), Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim’s Convenience), Janet Porter (The Listener), Anna Ferguson (“Heartland”), Yulia Petrauskas (“Nikita”), and Paulino Nunes (“The Strain”) as Mr. Godfrey.

The creative team also includes director of photography Benjamin Lichty (How to Change the World), production designer David Orin Charles (Meatballs), editor John Nicholls (Make It Pop), and costume designer Jenn Burton (Skating to New York). END OF DAYS, INC., was produced by Sandy Kellerman and Jennifer Liao with financial support from Telefilm Canada.

“This is a highly original and entertaining film with a distinctive style that also happens to have been written, directed, and produced by female filmmakers,” says Indiecan Entertainment’s Avi Federgreen. “It’s a unique and exciting addition to Indiecan’s slate.”

The acquisition presents a reunion of sorts as Liao was the producer of a previous Indiecan title, Sex After Kids. “I know firsthand how tireless Avi is in championing Canadian independent films and their filmmakers. We’re in great hands, and we look forward to getting to work bringing END OF DAYS, INC., to audiences across North America,” Liao adds.

END OF DAYS, INC., puts a supernatural spin on a workplace shutdown to darkly comic and chilling effect. It’s the last day of business before Godfrey Global Inventory shuts down for good, and the enigmatic Mr. Godfrey (Nunes) and his officious sister, Esther (Ferguson), invite the company’s downtrodden staff – Jason (O’Brien), Janet (Maraghi), Mort (Lee), and Misty (Porter) – to a farewell party where they are to receive their final paycheques. Instead, they are bribed into working one last night, wherein they discover that processing the last of their “inventory” may lead to cataclysmic consequences.

END OF DAYS, INC.’s trailer launches today, and the film is expected to hit theatres in early 2016 after its run on the festival circuit.

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3

Published

on

“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.

Synopsis:

A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

Published

on

One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

Jordan Peele Is Open to the Idea of Get Out Sequel

Published

on

Recently we shared the baffling news that this year, the Golden Globes were considering writer-director Jordan Peele’s psychological horror-thriller Get Out a comedy.

Hurm. While that bit of news still doesn’t make a bit of sense to me, today we have an update on Jordan Peele’s possible sequel Get Out 2. Which is always welcome.

Deadline was recently speaking with the filmmaker and Peele told them that although he still hasn’t cracked the sequel, if he comes up with a fresh spin he would have no problem revisiting the first film.

“I haven’t decided anything yet,” Peele told the site. “I am allowing the creative part to bubble up, and not force it. I know if a follow-up is meant to happen, it will. I’m open to figuring out what it is. But I also don’t want to let down the original and its fans. I simply would not do something like that for the cash.”

Good to hear!

I don’t know about you, but if Jordan Peele does decide to revisit the world of Get Out again in the future, I will be there. After reading these comments, I have faith the man will not return unless the story deserves it. Money be damned!

Unless… the sequel is called Sell Out… Ooohh. Snap. All jokes aside, in this world of sequels and remakes, it feels pretty damn good to hear a filmmaker talk this way.

What do you think of a Get Out sequel? Do you think the first film needs a continuation? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Get Out on Blu-ray HERE.

Synopsis:

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
