BREAKING: Nick Castle Returns to Play Michael Myers in New Halloween!

Published

on

Now this? This is just music to our horror-loving ears! First John Carpenter officially came on board to score and executive produce; then Jamie Lee Curtis joined the fray; and now, the actor who played the original Michael Myers is returning to make this next Halloween something truly special!

Bloody Disgusting reports the HUGE news that Nick Castle will return to the role of Michael Myers in Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions, and Miramax’s Halloween. The site goes on to report that while Castle will be pulling on the infamous mask once more, stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers. At this glorious point why not bring in Tony Moran for a quick unmasking?

It’s also being reported that the film’s FX will be handled by Christopher Nelson (Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Sin City, Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2).

Curtis of course plays Laurie Strode, and joining her will be Judy Greer as Karen Strode and Andi Matichak as her daughter, Allyson.

David Gordon Green’s Halloween is scheduled to be released October 19, 2018.

Oats Studios Cancels FIREBASE Feature

Published

on

A few weeks back we let you guys know that director Neill Blomkamp and his indie production company Oats Studios kicked off a fan-funding campaign to bring us a feature-length version of their killer short film Firebase.

But we have some sad news today as it seems the campaign was unsuccessful and all contributors will be getting their money back. Damn.

Oats Studios broke the news on Twitter saying, “To all backers of Firebase. Oats will be refunding everyone who contributed completely. Unfortunately, we didn’t raise enough to do something truly awesome. We would rather over deliver than create an average film. We thank the thousands of people who did back us- hang in there.”

Are you bummed there won’t be a feature-length Firebase flick? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Which Comes Next THE CONJURING 3 or THE CROOKED MAN?

Published

on

This September we will finally see the release of director Corin Hardy’s The Conjuring spin-off, The Nun. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, today we have word via Warner Bros. that another entry in The Conjuring Universe will hit July 3, 2019.

There’s no word on which film this might be, but it’s safe to assume it will be either the recently announced The Crooked Man spin-off, or the long-awaited third entry in the mothership franchise The Conjuring 3.

Last year, Wan spoke about both films saying, “We’ve been working hard on Conjuring 3. Of course, that is something that I am not neglecting. The Conjuring films are still the mothership and the mothership needs to be strong. The mothership needs to be strong for all these other jet fighters to shoot out of. So, we’re in the midst of working on the script, and still hashing [it] out. We want to make sure that the script is in a really good place. With how much people have loved the first two Conjuring, I don’t want to rush into the third one if possible.”

Speaking about The Crooked Man spin-off, Wan explains that the film is in, “…early stages, kind of like cooking away. But we think we have a really exciting story. What we want to do, with The Conjuring universe, is we want each of our little offshoots to have a very different flavor, right? So, for example, Annabelle is the classic sort-of haunted doll subgenre. And with The Crooked Man, I would love to push it more down somewhat of that dark fairytale, and more whimsical, subgenre. I love the idea that, within the Conjuring universe, each of our little movies all have their own flavor, so that way they don’t feel like they’re the same films.”

Which film do you HOPE is next up in The Conjuring Universe? Personally, I really want to see more of this crooked fellow before diving into the further adventures of the Warrens. But all the same, make sure to hit us up and let us know what YOU think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Producer Shawn Levy spoke with Collider about the upcoming third season and eventually, the conversation moved to a possible fourth season.

I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in Season Four,” Levy replied. “Season Four is definitely happening. There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one, that’s currently undecided.”

Nice! Are you excited to hear there will be a fourth (and possibly fifth) season of the Netflix original series? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
