It was back in 2012 when we first heard about Bound by Flesh, a documentary focusing on the lives of Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, who were featured in Tod Browning's classic film Freaks. Here we are years later with an exclusive clip and lots more.
We reported a few weeks ago that Universal had acquired The Demonologist, a novel manuscript by Andrew Pyper, to be produced by ImageMovers partners Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, and Steve Starkey, and today word has come that a writer has been found for the project.
You have to hand it to Lionsgate. With The Twilight Saga behind them and The Hunger Games in full swing, the studio is still on the lookout for the next big thing with young adults. Enter Patrick Ness’ bestselling young-adult trilogy Chaos Walking.
Leslie and Robert Zemeckis Shooting Documentary on Freaks Stars Daisy and Violet Hilton - Bound by Flesh
Anyone who is familiar with Tod Browning's classic film Freaks will no doubt be more than acquainted with Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton. The rest of you who are stunned to hear that Titanic was based upon actual events ... not so much. Still, it's never too late to learn something.

There aren't many details available at this point, but it's just come across the wire that Universal has acquired Demonologist, a novel manuscript by Andrew Pyper, to be produced by ImageMovers partners Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, and Steve Starkey.
With the success of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, all eyes have been on director Brad Bird to see what he does next. Turns out he may be dipping his toes into some monster-infested waters.
Back in July we told you about a little flick called Here There Be Monsters, a movie about Revolutionary War Naval hero John Paul Jones and his battles with sea monsters. At that time Robert Zemeckis was involved with steering the ship, but apparently that ship has sailed.
The last time there was anything to talk about regarding the Robert Zemeckis live action adaptation of Chuck Sambuchino's How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack was this past April, and now that writers are attached, Zemeckis himself might direct instead of just producing. Read on for details.
Legendary Pictures sure is big on monsters lately with both Pacific Rim and Godzilla gearing up to stomp around. Not that we're complaining, mind you. In fact we love it! Time to add another creature feature to the ever growing list!
No, we haven't been drinking.

(At this time he is not slated to direct, nor has a screenwriter been chosen.)
