Ryuhei Kitamura to Direct Black Friday 3D?

Published

on

Ryuhei KitamuraMore news out of Cannes. A new slasher is getting set to bring his special brand of slaughter to horror fans, and one hell of a director is said to be getting behind the project.

Bloody Disgusting broke the news that Midnight Meat Train director Ryuhei Kitamura (pictured) will be getting behind the camera for Black Friday 3D – a project that has been kicking around for quite a while now with various different names attached to both direct and star. We did some digging and can tell you that as of yet nothing is solid in the way of casting despite some names recently brought to light like Lindsay Lohan.

I went to a source close to the project, Dread Central’s resident rock star and my partner in crime Joe Knetter, who penned the script for Black Friday to get some official word. He couldn’t confirm or deny any of the leaked news due to legal reasons (damned pesky non-disclosures) but did have this to say with a wink, “The script is in very capable hands. I have no doubt they’ll put out a killer film. I’m thrilled to see this project finally taking off. The new script is brutal and full of cool, gory deaths. I look forward to seeing it brought to life.

Check out an early plot crunch below, which details the life and crimes of a lunatic named Tyler Hillburg.

It’s the 4th of July. Fireworks light up the sky. A houseboat secluded from the rest of the festivities floats on the lake. A couple relax on the deck without a care in the world and watch the display. They are madly in love and feel as though they are the only two people in the world. They are not as alone as they think as someone is watching them. Soon that person will do more than watch, and all hell will break loose.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.

Inside Remake Gets New Poster and U.S. Release Date

Published

on

It’s about time.

It has been a whopping four months since we shared with you guys the red band trailer for the upcoming English language remake of Inside starring Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring.

Today we have an all-new poster for the film (via our buddies at Arrow in the Head), and the one-sheet also boasts the remake’s U.S. release date. Yes, Inside will be hitting Stateside on January 12, 2018.

You can click on the poster to the right to check it out in higher-res. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know if you’re planning to check out this remake in the comments below!

Miguel Ángel Vivas directed the Inside remake.

Produced by Adrian Guerra and Nuria Valls at Spain’s Nostromo Pictures, the remake was written by Manu Diez and [REC] creator/co-director Jaume Balaguero. “We took the original idea and made it an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more Hitchcock-ian than a splatter-fest,” said Guerra.

Again, Inside hits U.S. theaters and VOD January 12, 2018.

Synopsis:
Pregnant and depressed, a young widow tries to rebuild her life following the fateful car accident where she lost her husband and partially lost her hearing. Now, about to go into labor, she’s living in a remote house in the suburbs when, one Christmas night, she receives an unexpected visit from another woman with a devastating objective: to rip the child she’s carrying from inside her. But a mother’s fury when it comes to protecting her child should never be underestimated.

Deep Blue Sea 2 Rated R for Creature Violence/Gore and Language

Published

on

Five months ago we shared the news that there was a secret sequel to the 1999 killer sharks vs. Tom Jane and LL Cool J movie Deep Blue Sea filming, and today we have the sequel’s rating.

And it’s about what you’d expect. Not that that’s a bad thing.

Yes, the upcoming shark attack sequel Deep Blue Sea 2 has been rated R by the MPAA for “creature violence and gore and for language.”

Not only that, but we have a few words on what we can expect from the sequel via a creative executive over at Warner Bros. named Matt Bierman.

“We are a true sequel,” Bierman said regarding the sequel. “We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and storyline of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the storytelling and the narrative in a way that [the] first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build, but once the rubber band snaps, things go boom really quickly!”

The lead shark has a personality? How could that be a bad thing?

Let’s just hope there aren’t scenes of the rugged Tom Jane stand-in lovingly hugging/stroking the shark after it does something cool and telling the new guy how the shark (nicknamed Bruce) is just “misunderstood.”

…And then the shark saves everyone at the end. Called it.

The sequel is directed by Darin Scott from a screenplay by Erik Patterson, Hans Rodionoff, and Jessica Scott and stars Danielle Savre, Rob Mayes, and Michael Beach.

The movie is set to premiere on Syfy sometime next year. Once we know the exact date we’ll let us know so stay tuned!

“Deepest. Bluest. My head is like a shark’s fin…”
