Another horror comedy is well on its way, this time taking a look at the multimillion dollar haunt industry! Could Halloween get bigger than Christmas in terms of decorations and special places to visit? It just could be!
A bit of casting news has come in for Vigilandia, Platinum Dunes' latest film with Universal. A female lead has been found, and there's no doubt she's gonna kick some serious ass. Well, at least we hope so.
Ever since Platinum Dunes misfired with its A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, they've been pretty damned quiet. Usually news would have come by now for a gritty sequel or remake of something or other. That being said, a new project is officially on the horizon.
Remember Jumby? Jumby remembers you. Jumby wanted to be born. Jumby wanted to be in a good movie. Jumby still can't believe he ever hooked up with those Platinum Dunes guys. Jumby thought his troubles were over. Jumby now lands in court. Poor Jumby.
While we're still of the mindset that nothing made by Parker Brothers can actually contact the dead on the other side, we're still really interested in seeing just where the hell a movie based upon a board game is going to go.
Though they always have a myriad of projects on their slate, you can add another to the list of movies that Platinum Dunes wants to make ... in the horror for the whole family genre. Interested? Read on for the 411! According to THR Paramount is in negotiations to pick up The Hauntrepreneur, an original spec by Scott Rosenberg.
Since the powers-that-be are still using the description of "supernatural" in regard to the upcoming McG-directed Ouija, based on the popular board game, we're going to keep covering it. The latest news is that Evan Spiliotopoulos is set to rewrite the supernatural action-adventure film for Universal Pictures and Platinum Dunes.
So much for Platinum Dunes taking a break from the genre! Word of another new project from the team of Brad Fuller and Andrew Form has broken online, and the good news is that it's not a remake or a sequel.
Brad Fuller has been tweeting up a storm lately, updating fans on the status of a bunch of projects. Next one up? The Platinum Dunes remake of the classic The Monster Squad for Paramount.
Some interesting tidbits coming out of Twitterland this morning concerning Platinum Dunes and their future with our beloved Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. Nothing too surprising but the source is pretty air-tight.
Universal executives will have some food for thought over the holiday break as they try and decide just who should be at the helm of their upcoming movie which focuses on the Hasbro board game Ouija, which is said to let you communicate with the other side.
Can it be that the celluloid gods have heard my embittered pleas and taken action? Is it true that Platinum Dunes has left the Friday the 13th franchise behind after one shockingly awful entry that missed the point entirely? Right now all signs are pointing to 'yes'.
Who would have thought a little movie based upon a Parker Brothers board game that supposedly enables you to communicate with the dead could cause such a stir in Hollywood!
It's been a few months since last there was anything to talk about regarding Platinum Dunes' next film with Universal Pictures, entitled Ouija, but the planchette is now moving and pointing toward a director.
