More Zombie Lunacy Coming in Activision’s Prototype 2

Published

on

One of our favorite games from last year was the zombie infested open world game, Prototype. As always, you just can’t keep a good ghoul down as Activision has officially announced a sequel and even provided a trailer to whet your monstrous appetite.

From the Press Release
Activision Publishing, Inc. confirmed today that PROTOTYPE® 2, the sequel to Radical Entertainment’s original best-selling game of 2009 – PROTOTYPE – is currently in development for 2012. PROTOTYPE 2’s first official trailer was revealed as a world premiere during this past weekend’s Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010 show, where fans of the shape-shifting open-world action franchise got their first glimpse into Sgt. James Heller, and why he is going to destroy PROTOTYPE’s original anti-hero, Alex Mercer. For those that missed it, head over to the official Prototype Facebook page to check out the trailer and be sure to become a fan. Gamers should also be on the lookout for the exclusive, in-depth first look preview of PROTOTYPE 2 in EGM magazine’s April 2011 issue.

“When PROTOTYPE surpassed 2MM units we knew gamers would want a sequel to find out what happens next with Alex Mercer,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “The team here at Radical is sincerely grateful to the fans and we are laser focused on delivering an even bigger and better experience with PROTOTYPE 2!”

Additionally, for those that missed out on one of 2009’s best-selling games, or fans dying to reawaken their shape-shifting skills, Radical Entertainment’s original over-the-top action game PROTOTYPE is available now for download on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for $29.99, and will be available for download on December 14, 2010 on the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for $29.99. Fans of the game at the official Prototype Facebook page will automatically be entered into a random drawing to win a token to download the game for FREE.

PROTOTYPE 2 is currently rated “RP” (Rating Pending) by the ESRB, with an expected “M” (Mature – Content that may be suitable for persons 17 and older) rating – because players will still be able to karate kick helicopters right out of the sky and do all sorts of really gory stuff with tendrils; but mostly because Heller is really pissed off at Alex Mercer and there’s no way to tell that story without getting a little … well … gross.

Paramount’s Dating App Thriller Snags The Boy Next Door Screenwriter

Published

on

Are dating apps scary? Paramount sure hopes that’s the case as they have just hired screenwriter Barbara Curry (Blumhouse’s The Boy Next Door) to pen the upcoming “dramatic investigative thriller” Gasp.

Hiring Curry for this film makes a ton of sense being that before Curry was the screenwriter behind “dramatic investigative thrillers” she worked as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office for ten years. Qualifications galore.

Deadline reports that Gasp is centered around a female detective investigating a killer who is targeting women via a dating app. Nice. Not only is that a super-timely and creepy plot for a flick, but the film is supposedly based on several true stories.

Heaven help us. I knew it. Stay away from those. Male or female. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Now while I’ve never had a bad experience (re: stalker) from a dating app that makes sense considering I never use them. Ever. I prefer the old-school method of sitting in my room alone typing horror news articles and letting the ladies come to me.

12% of the time, it works every time.

The film is based on a pitch by Mario Celaya and produced by Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman. Jessica Sharzer (“American Horror Story”) is co-producing.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

A female detective goes undercover online to catch a killer who is murdering women he meets on a specific popular app. But when she starts to fall for one of the suspects who has been cleared, she discovers he may, in fact, be the killer.

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.
