Exclusive: Mulberry St. Team Does Lansdale!

Published

on

Cold in July next for Mulberry St. team!Just got off the phone with Jim Mickle and Nick Damaci, director and writer/star (respectively) of Mulberry Street (review), which as you know is coming to theaters this November as part of the second annual After Dark Horrorfest.

The full audio interview will be up soon, but I did want to share a cool bit of news they gave me towards the end of the call; “We’re doing an adaptation of Joe Lansdale’s Cold in July,” Mickle told me, “Nick just sent me a draft this morning, actually. It’s not really a horror thing, it’s more of a Western/thriller noir piece.”

“I love the project, the novel is great,”” Nick continued, “It’s set in 1989 which should be a really fun era to work in; I was a young man then! It should be very interesting to see how it turns out.”

For those not familiar with it, Cold in July is a suspense novel about a small businessman who killed another man in self defense. Now the dead man’s father, a murderous ex-con, wants to take an eye for an eye, but before long the two are forced to work with one another to fight their way through a living nightmare.

I questioned how the pair became attached to it, since it’s so different from Mulberry Street, and they said it was basically the first thing that stuck out from the other projects they were looking at for that very reason; it was nothing like Mulberry Street. Beladonna, the same folks behind Mulberry Street, are behind it, but that’s about all the details they were able to divulge as of now.

Check out the full interview, complete with my endless sniffling (I’m sick, you see), very soon!

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
