Three more young actors are in negotiations to appear in Alexandre Aja’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s popular novel Horns, and we have all the details you need right here!

From the Press Release:
Juno Temple (The Dark Night Rises, Atonement, Killer Joe), Joe Anderson (The Grey, Across the Universe, The Crazies), and Kelli Garner (The Aviator, Lars and the Real Girl, Bully) (pictured l-r below) are the latest actors to board the supernatural fantasy/thriller Horns. The hot young trio are in advanced negotiations to star alongside Daniel Radcliffe. Max Minghella (The Social Network, The Ides of March) is also currently in negotiations for a key role in the film.

Horns is being co-produced and financed by Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland’s Los Angeles-based film production, finance, and international sales company Red Granite Pictures. Red Granite will co-produce the film with Mandalay Pictures. Red Granite Pictures’ international sales arm (Red Granite International), led by Danny Dimbort and Christian Mercuri, is handling foreign sales for the film and will begin discussions with international buyers in Toronto this week.

Based on the best-selling novel by Joe Hill, Horns is being directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, High Tension) from an adapted screenplay by Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”). Producers are Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, and Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman. Joe Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta are executive producers.

Horns, a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery, and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.

This rock and roll infused dark fantasy explores why bad things happen to good people and what the loss of true love can do to a man. The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks and has become an international bestseller as well.

Principal photography is slated to begin this fall so look for lots more soon.

Massive Collection of Original Stephen King Manuscripts Tragically Lost in Flood

Published

on

The last couple of years have seen a massive resurgence in movies and TV adapting the works of noted author Stephen King. We got “The Mist”, “Mr. Mercedes”, “11.22.63”, “Castle Rock”, The Dark Tower, IT, Gerald’s Game, Cell, and more. The power of his words have clearly resonated across generations and are impacting viewers today just as much as they did readers upon release. For Bangor, ME resident Gerald Winters, King’s work is more than a passion, it was his life’s calling.

According to the Maine Public, Winters moved to the United States from Thailand over a year ago and established his own business, Gerald Winters & Son. A rare book store, it was Winters’ intention to collect and store as much of King’s original work as possible, including first editions, manuscripts, signed copies, artwork, and more. The collection numbered in the thousands, a treasure trove of all things King.

Tragically, some 2,000 pieces of his collection was irreparably damaged when a water main burst in front of his business, flooding his store’s basement with several feet of water, soaking everything. “You can’t replace this stuff,” he told the site. He estimates that only 10% of his store’s inventory was okay after the incident.

Many of us have our own personal collections of something, be it movies, books, comics, toys, instruments, records… Whatever it is that you hold dear, that is what Winters felt towards his collection, which included items he traveled the world to acquire. It’s beyond heartbreaking to hear of his story.

Just days ahead of its release, we’ve teamed up with IFC Midnight to bring you an exclusive clip from their upcoming supernatural horror film The Midnight Man, which stars Robert Englund, Lin Shaye, and Gabrielle Haugh.

The Midnight Man hits theaters, VOD, and digital platforms on January 22, 2018.

Synopsis:
It was supposed to be just an urban legend… On a snowy night in her grandmother’s sprawling mansion, teenage Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) and her best friend Miles (Grayson Gabriel) discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient Pagan ritual said to summon the players’ greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun—until they unleash the terrifying spirit of The Midnight Man, an unholy force who pits them against their darkest demons and dares them to survive. Horror legends Robert Englund and Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street) co-star in this terrifying, supernatural game of cat and mouse. Play at your own risk…

Check Out the Amazing Poster for Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy Starring Nicolas Cage

Published

on

Truth be told I have not heard one thing about the upcoming Nic Cage period action-thriller Mandy until today.

That’s not to say I’m not totally intrigued by the film, which is directed by Panos Cosmatos who helmed the gorgeous mind-trip Beyond the Black Rainbow a few years back. It has just slipped under my radar.

But all of that changed today with EW‘s reveal of the film’s poster which is about as badass of a poster as I have seen since the fantasy flicks of the 80’s.

You can check out the killer new poster for the film in higher-res to the right and then let us know what you think!

Mandy is directed by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow) and stars Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, and Linus Roache and is produced by Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Elijah Wood, Nate Bolotin, and Adrian Politowski.

Mandy premieres at the Sundance Film Festival January 19th.

Synopsis:

Set in 1893, Cage plays Red Miller, a broken and haunted man, who hunts the unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.
